Recurring Trend: Leotards!

Leotards are a one-piece garment that resembles a bathing suit that is today worn by music entertainers!
                                                               THE ORIGINAL:
The first leotard was created in the 1800's by Jules Leotard. This garment was originally worn only by men for circus shows! It later became unisex and inspired  the idea for one-piece swimwear for women!
