There were varieties of style and color in turn-of-the-century bathing suits. The more conservative women stuck to the plain black taffeta or mohair bathing suit with just a slight touch of color about the collar and belt. These were not as attractive as the bright colored or striped bathing suits seen at the more fashionable sea-shore resorts.

Most Victorian bathing suit patterns included a blouse, knickerbockers, and skirt. The most used material was mohair although silk taffetas were also popular. Typically about 9 yards of fabric was required to complete the outfit.
