The relation between bikinis and sports in the modern times is complicated. In the last century, female athletes were forced to wear bikinis, such as high waisted cheeky bikinis, as their uniforms in some sport competitions, which gave rise to both approval and criticism. However, in the past, especially in the ancient society, the relation between bikinis and sports was simplier and easier. Two-piece bikinis were designed for female athletes. And some archaeological discoveries also strongly prove it.
Right for each other
On Greek urns and paintings, women were seen in two-piece bikini-style clothes, which were worn for athletic competitions. And in the pre-Roman period, a kind of breastband, which was called mastodeton or apodesmos, was worn by Greek women while they were going to participate in competitions.
Among a large number of ancient Roman archaeological sites, Villa Romana del Casale boasts great reputation for one of its mosaics, Coronation of the Winner. In this mosaic, people paid great attention to ten girls in bikini-style clothes. They were participating in sport games, including running and weightlifting. And the winner was standing at the center of the mosaic while the official who was responsible for giving a trophy was on the left side.
In the ancient times, bikinis and sports were great partners. There was no criticism for their combination. Wearers were willing to put on bikini-style clothes and no one would held disagreement. The relationship between bikinis and sports was peaceful. Athletes in bikinis tried their best to win games while audiences buried themselves in great performance.
