THROWBACK THURSDAY: BIKINIS THROUGHOUT THE DECADES

Posted on 25 June 2017

In July, 1946, the world’s first bikini made its debut at a poolside fashion show in Paris. French designer Louis Reard unveiled his “bikini’ (inspired by a U.S. atomic test that took place off the Bikini Atoll in the Pacific Ocean earlier that week!) on a Parisian model. This wasn’t just any Parisian model, since Reard had such a difficult time finding a girl who would wear such a scandalous two-piece, he had to turn to exotic Dancer, Michelle Bernardini. All it took was one show and girls were captivated by the skimpy swimwear, the bikini became an instant sensation spreading in popularity all around the world.

We’re clearly crazy about Bikinis and super thankful that Reard took that huge risk to introduce the two-piece while creating history! We put together a timeline of some the greatest photos of bikinis and swimsuits on babes throughout the decades.

It’s clear the 80’s and 90’s styles are making a huge comeback with extremely high cuts, mesh, and cut-outs. What styles would you love to come back?
