Fact of the Day
Jules Leotard was born in 1839. After getting into gymnastics like his father, he began to improvise. This led to him one day inventing the trapeze. Out of necessity and with a hint of form involved, Leotard invented his trademark costume in order to maximize he freedom to move during his act. Other performers adopted the look, most notoriously the ballerinas of Paris [source].
