    Titles read: 'NOW THE Special Pathe Pictorial Section for the Ladies - Bathing Modes'.

    Probably filmed in Pathe Studio, London.

    Brief section of archive footage showing women from the 1920s (?) sitting on a boat on a beach, wearing old-fashioned swimsuits. Commentator says "Sorry, that's the wrong film".

    We then see various shots of models wearing the latest swimming costumes made from evening wear fabrics, moulded on elastic to replace the rubber fabrics. We see a taffeta ruched swimsuit worn with white net shoes. Some other beach shoes have a string strap.

    A linen swimsuit is lined with angora wool and comes in two shades of suntan - blonde or brunette. A lovely satin swimming costume is modelled by a girl with a beach ball. The final costume is a two-tone creation with a net foundation.

    Note: female commentator.
