There was been some interest -- offline -- in Justine's bathing 
things or bathing costume (Justine 1.22). Of course, our speculations 
can not be conclusive because of the lack of textual resources, but 
given our knowledge of the many faceted Justine, what kind of bathing 
costume would she wear? We recall that Nancy and Larry liked to swim 
in the nude on Corfu, and perhaps Justine would rapidly doff her 
things. But, no, she would opt for the mixture of mystery with 
sensuality which the proper bathing costume would promote. That 
leaves us with other possibilities. Two piece? How small? One piece? 
How revealing?
