Presenting the DDO Swimsuit Edition

As to be expected, there's lots of buzz on the web about this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. This year marks the 48th issue, which made me think a bit about bathing suit history and how swimsuit design has changed throughout the years. I did some poking around flickr, and dug up some vintage ads, photographs and illustrations. Presenting the DDO Swimsuit Edition:
