 The History of the Bikini
The modern history of the bikini begins in 1946 when the first bikini-style swimsuit was revealed in France to a shocked and titillated crowd.
Throughout later decades, the bikini continued to mature in style, as American and Brazilian manufacturers began to push the envelope to see just how much skin could be revealed in a bikini.
More modern bikini designers have built upon such fashion revolutions, maintaining the string bikini and thong bikini and adding the new tankini (a long tank-style top paired with bikini bottoms) and bandini (a bikini using a bandeau-style top) to the ever-growing selection of bikini swimwear.
