On a day like today, sixty-five years ago, the modern bikini was first worn at a public place. The two-piece swimming suit caused a lot of stir when it was introduced because of its small size. As a matter of fact, the designers of the modern bikini, Louis Réard and Jacques Heim, named the bathing suit after the atoll in Micronesian Islands of the Pacific Ocean because they thought the style would cause the same reaction as the atomic bombs being tested at the Bikini Atoll during that time.
Over time, the swimming suit became an accepted piece of clothing. Actresses like Ursula Andress, who showed a bikini in a well-known scene of James Bond’s Doctor No movie, helped popularize the two-piece summer outfit.
Now the bikini is that indispensable cloth women try to fit into every summer.
