The bikini is the most popular beachwear around the globe!


It was invented by French engineer Louis Réard in 1946 and he named it after Bikini Atoll in the Pacific, the site of the Operation Crossroads nuclear weapon test on July 1, 1946. The reasoning for the name was that the burst of excitement created by it would be like a nuclear device.

But the bikini has a very old history: it was already used by Greeks and Romans!
