Bathing Costume 1890s  This is what I want only as shorts instead of knee highs. Why can't we have them like this now?

Woman’s two piece bathing suit, 1890s. All made of deep blue wool, the shirt and pants are one piece with a gathered overskirt for modesty. The white trim is cotton twill tape, giving it a nautical flair. To complete the look, the bather would have worn a gathered cap, stockings, bathing shoes and perhaps a corset.
