History of the Bikini 1

Bikini: a sassy invention

Invention and innovation which shocked the world when it was released, the bikini is now the most popular swimwear. However, we can well imagine the scandal he did when Louis Réard, french engineer, had the idea to do a huge opening of its creation at the piscine Molitor in Paris on July 5, 1946.

But it is interesting to note that the invention of the two-piece does not return to Louis Réard, since 1932, the Parisian designer Jacques Heim had created Atom, the first shirt that revealed a little more skin but who kept covered navel. It also later attended a media battle between the two creators…

But back to our sheep. Famous 5 July 1946, no dummy would wear this scandalous piece at the inauguration. It was Michelle Bernardini, famous cabaret dancer, that he came back to do so. When show her body was still taboo, create the bikini that revealed all of the belly and was only very little hiding the chest was more than risky.

And the bet was so risky that success was far from forthcoming. It was much too shocking, and he was banished quickly podiums. The press in particular was not tender, she went on to say: “it is simply inconceivable that a girl with a simple ounce of tact and decency are advised to wear such a thing”. The tone was set.

In Italy and Spain, the two-piece swimsuit was even banned on beaches, considered much too indecent.

History of the Bikini 2

Gradually adopted by the people of the time

It took until the end of the 1950s and especially the’ 60s, with the progressive liberation of morals, that the bikini makes its appearance. It is found among the celebrities of the time such as Marilyn Monroe in 1953 in men prefer blondes (the bikini she was wearing headlines also), Brigitte Bardot in the famous film and God created woman or even Ursula Andress in a James Bond, in 1962. Out of these very famous films at the cinema, all women wanted to imitate their favorite actresses. The beginning of the amazing success of the famous two-piece swimsuit was launched.

In 1967, Time magazine declares that “65 percent of girls have already taken the step” by buying a bikini from BikiniWill. He then began to bloom more and more on the beaches, beginning to take on the who then contrasted strongly with the bit of skin covered by the bikini.

This last became so very quickly popular in the space of a few years, moving from a scandal to THE room we had.
