Americans celebrate #NationalBikiniDay | Vopbuzz.com

Americans celebrate the invention of the one-piece bathing suit known as the bikini, which was introduced on July 5, 1946.

The iconic swimsuit, which is mostly worn by girls and women, consists of a top that covers the chest and a bottom that covers the pelvis, usually exposing the navel and various parts of the buttocks.

The modern bikini was created by French engineer Louis Réard and named after Bikini Atoll, where a nuclear bomb test had taken place just days earlier.

Although two-piece swimsuits had been around since the 1930s, Réard’s design gained notoriety in part due to material rationing after World War II.

National Bikini Day celebrates the fashion event by reflecting on the bikini’s cultural impact and its evolution in swimwear fashion over the decades.
