In Pompeii , depictions of Venus wearing a bikini were discovered in the Casa della Venere,    in the tablinum of the House of Julia Felix ,  and in an atrium garden of Via Dell'Abbondanza. The bathing gown of the 18th century was a loose ankle-length full-sleeve chemise -type gown made of wool or flannel that retained coverage and modesty.

That is a very good question. It will be hard to decide how to split the country. But it will also depend on who's in power when it happens. It looks most likely that it will happen with Trump in power, in which case it won't be a remotely amicable split. The right does not want California or the Northeast, and of course the split doesn't need to keep the states in their current form, either. I do feel like a general North/South split would make sense, but it's far from the only option.
