I have been reading more of my book about Rose Marie Reid. I am nearly finished now. It has been very interesting. The book is written by her daughter Carol and a family friend. It does tend to jump about a little ( probably like this blog!) but is keeping me gripped. It seems that the 1950s were the best times for Rose Marie Reid. This is when her swimsuits were the most popular in the world. She worked so hard even sometimes sleeping at her work. She had a strong faith in her Mormon religion and the book does delve in to that quite alot. One thing she felt strongly about was that she didn't like the bikini and when the other major swimsuit companies began to produce them she didn't give in to the pressure. She felt more modest swimsuits were what women truly wanted. When she stopped working for the company in the 1960s it was about the time when the bikini was taking over in popularity. I found this clip on you tube about the bikini which is quite interesting.
