A bit of history of the bandeau garment, it’s history goes right back to the Roman times however it was only in the 1920’s when the term was first related to the modern clothing that women wear, in this era it was related to a very simple brassiere that was used to support and shape women’s breast, however it was more often than not used to flatten a women’s assets as this was the fashion during these years. Later on in the mid 1940’s to the 50’s they were introduced as swimsuits and swimming costumes and has since seen a ride of increases and decreases in popularity over the years. Since 2005 the Bandeau bikini has seen a steady rise in popularity helped by highstreets reintroducing them and heavy promotion and marketing of them in magazines and via advertising.
