The Bikini was invented by Louis Reard, a fashion designer from Paris in 1946 at the Piscine Molitor swimming Pool in Paris, France and has since been accepted across the world as a swim garment for the ladies especially in the beach. When it was first introduced, the garment was banned on beaches across Spain and Italy, perhaps because it shows too much skin but hey, it’s 21st Century, everyone is now celebrating it!!
This day was created in commemoration of this beautiful invention and appreciation of the designer the goal being to get to the nearest beach in your bikini and also get discounts to holiday destinations such as Hawaii, Maldives and Bali and show off the bikini.
There is nothing to be ashamed of while dressed up in a bikini, it has been worn by nearly all iconic women in history and besides been a comfortable swim wear, it brings out feminism at its best and enhances the self-esteem of our women. And here is the most Iconic bikini wears of all times.
Today we have various designs of bikinis: high wasted, strapless, thong… etc. and all made of different materials! It is a high time we detached ourselves from the myth that bikinis are for the well toned and slim girls, no! Whatever your size or skin tone may be, rock that two piece girl!!!!
The day cannot end without surprises and offers, swimsuit companies are discounting offers for the bikinis while others give them free to lucky winners, others are giving body training and toning at discounted rates. Don’t miss out on these crazy offers. Happy Bikini Day!!!!!
