They were also swimmers and also swam naked. McCann, Upon receiving your email I looked at the picture of the Natatorium with the diver again and realized there is what appears to be a man and a woman sitting together on a bench watching the diver. They are located near the lower right corner of the picture. There also appears to be another naked man standing to the side and in front of them. Everyone was naked, since suits were not allowed, and sanitary regulations were quite strict.
You did not even enter the pool without first taking a nude shower. The old Ys were a great place to exercise in a clean, all-male environment.

One word of note: The go-to silhouette for a couple of years now, tailored swim shorts are suitable for every type of dresser, old and young. As previously mentioned, cuts have gradually gotten shorter, so whereas before tailored versions finished a couple of inches above the knee, now they are hitting closer to mid-thigh.
That said, the length you opt for should be determined by your specific body type see below. It used to be that only premium brands offered these, but now they are available at every price point, from high street to designer. Not only does the fabric drape and fit much better through the thigh, producing the clean lines you should be looking to create throughout your entire wardrobe, they are also still quite rare on the current market, which will help separate your swim shorts from the masses.
Tailored swim shorts lend themselves well to sharp, Riviera-inspired looks so try combining with linen shirts, Clubmasters, Breton stripes, espadrilles, pastel polos and the like. Many brands now offer the same style in varying lengths, which means you should be able to find something suitable. The hat du jour for SS14 is the bucket.
