Why women`s swimwear, men swimming trunks?

Probably because sports since ancient times, only men did. In Ancient Greece athletes competed naked, but times and mores have changed and the athletes began to use clothing. And when puritanical views gave way to more loose, swimmers changed bathing suits on the less resisting movement in the water pieces of fabric - pants, which got its name from the word swimmers - speedo.\r but all this only applies to the Russian language. In English, for example, and bottoms, and swimsuit have a common basis: the word swim to swim in the German General framework Baden, although bathing and swimming - schwimmen in French and bottoms, and swimsuit - maillot de bain.
