I won't bore you with the Harry's Shoes story. Suffice to say I was buying shoes for my children when the rip-off occurred. Not nice.....

  1. Dear Ms. Kennedy,

    My name is Kitty, and I am a student at Syracuse University majoring in Magazine Journalism. For my magazine editing class, I am fact checking an article about the evolution of bikinis for an on campus magazine. I am wondering if I could confirm some facts with you about the history of women's swimsuits?

    What is your preferable way of communication? I could give you a quick call at a time of your convenience or you could just respond my questions here or by email. Below is the list of facts I want to double check:

    --Is it true that women in the early 1990s wore full-coverage bathing suits that look like dresses? And they even sewed weights into their hems?

    --Were the hems of women's swimsuits shortened in the 1920s and the swimsuits were sleeveless and more form-fitting? Did women at that time need to cover their knees (or the swimsuit could be no more than 6 inches from knees)?

    --Did backless one-piece suits became popular in 1930s?

    --When did Jacques Heim design the "Atome" swimsuit? Did it reveal the navel?

    --In the 1980s and 90s, did women favor bright, neon colored swimsuits?

    --When did the Brazilian tanga become popular? Was the tanga bottom connected with only a thin, elastic band?

    Thank you very much for your time and support! Please let me know if you prefer to communicate through the phone. My contact info is listed below. Have a wonderful day!
