Some 1950s swimsuit patterns  were also boned in the chest area or on the torso (like a longline bra). Separate rubber swimming panties were worn under swimsuits to provide even more smoothing and shaping. Needless to say, these swimsuits were less about swimming and more about looking like a pinup.
