The Evolution of Women’s Swim
Women’s swimwear has undergone design and fabric alterations since the eighteenth century when sea bathing was so popular and female recreation was so despised, that “bathing gowns” served as an outfit more comfortable than day clothes for bathing in the sea. The nineteenth century upgraded its swimwear to more accurately accommodate womens fashion. “Bathing dresses” outlined their silhouettes and layered for modesty.
Twentieth century swimwear soared after competitive swimming became popularized. Since swimming became more inclusive to women and a form of exercise, tighter, more aerodynamic suits were made out of cotton, which did not anticipate the element of water, causing drooping, unsupportive fashionwear.
As the twentieth century grew to emphasize fitness and health, latex supported and outlined a female physic when enduring the weight of water. With further advancements, bikinis emerged, supporting a woman’s curves while giving a lesser coverage, sexier suit with high cuts on the legs and low cuts at the chest.
80s babies might recall Hunza swim, known for its unique stretchy crinkle fabric that was so beloved by the high waist, high leg era. Specializing in high cut designs to showcase those long legs, and thick straps for a practical design, Hunza takes pride in its comprehensive brand.
Hunza G makes some amazing one piece swimsuits perfect for a twenty-first century summer. Here’s a brief look into what we’ll cover:
- Hunza G popularity
- The Cutout
- The Pretty Woman Suit
- The One Shoulder Suit
- The Square Neck
- The Retro Domino
A Little Bit About Hunza G
Hunza G became recognizable in the 90s after Julia Roberts walked on screen in Pretty Woman in that notorious white and blue cutout mini dress. The rave caused a boom in attention to the brand (and specifically to that dress).

After Co-founder Huddart rebooted Hunza as Hunza G in 2015, she introduced a “one size” fit to form to the shape of anyone. The new and improved brand wanted to harness an eco-friendly nature, reducing commercial overbuying and waste by capitalizing on the “one size fits all” tag. Through fair trade, carbon-neutral manufacturing, and a positive work environment, Hunza G demonstrates class and progression as an inclusive, developing brand.
Evolution of the Cutout
Cutout clothes became popular in the 1990s after Tom Ford’s Gucci fall/winter 1996 show. This show introduced and further commercialized the iconic cutout, styling open-front dresses and shirts and acrylic rings and belts.
Decades later in 2017, torso cutouts made their way back onto the stage, and peek-a-boo cutouts became widely popularized by models, and therefore, primarily the female fashion industry.

Hunza G One Pieces You Need to Snag for Summer 2023
Follow these trends to serve a retro but modern look for the summer for a practical yet fashionable look.
Pretty Woman Swim XO One Piece

The Pretty Woman Swim XO One Piece got its name from Julia Roberts (no surprise there). Sporting a fuchsia top and orange bottom fastened together with a silver ring in the center of the torso, the contemporary high leg yet conventional cutout one piece provides more coverage and support than a two-piece bikini.
The round neck and wide shoulder straps provide further comfort and support (especially for the girls) and all over smocking gives the fabric an easy stretch. Made of 88% nylon and 12% elastane made in one size, this two-piece-one-piece provides comfort and style to all.
The athletic feel and soft fabric makes this swimsuit a must-have for the summer months. Larger chested women can feel comfortable wearing this product, as the thick straps give support while the bottom cutoff layer gives a jolt of tight support around the highest part of the torso. A modern, sexy high leg and torso cutout complements a traditional top. Wear this as a suit to swim in, relax in, and play some beach volleyball in–but be aware of the tan lines.
Hunza G Nancy Swim One Piece

The Hunza G Nancy Swim One Piece sports an athletic look and feel. Made of 88% nylon and 12% lycra spandex allows for a flexible design for all around comfort. All over smocking provides a stretchy material, and the unlined fabric allows for elasticity. This suit is available in multiple colors: pink, red, metallic blue, and more.
The one shoulder look is best for smaller chests because of the unlined fabric and less-supportive top. The suit fits snug on all sizes and provides a thick strap for a good foundation.

The Hunza G square neck one piece comes in multiple colors including purple, black, green, pink, red, white, lime, stripped, chocolate, and more. The soft textured fabric allows for an easy, comfortable fit and the unlined silhouette gives comfort in all the right places. The unstructured 88% nylon and 12% elastane fabric gives way during exercise and relaxation.
The purple square neck one piece is a great alternative to the traditional restrictive and lined one piece. The buttery-soft fabric will give you comfort through all types of movement.
Hunza G Domino One Piece

Tortoiseshell acrylic rings connect the shoulder straps separately, and a scoop neck and back give a vintage look. Made of 96% nylon and 4% lycra spandex, this unlined one piece suit conforms to every curve of your body.
This trendy one piece gives a hint of retro with a low scoop neck and connecting rings. Pair with some accessories like a bucket hat and vibrant jewelry to compliment the clarity of the tortoiseshell rings.
