Virtually all the ladies have at least a pair of Bikini in their wardrobe, but little did they know about its history.
Today, we are taking you back to the good old 40’s when the first bikini was made. Precisely, the first bikini was made in 1946 by French engineer, Louis Réard.
70 years ago today when an outfit, ‘smaller than the world’s smallest swimsuit’ made an appearance at a poolside fashion show in Paris.
Following the invention of Bikini, it became challenging to find a lady who appreciates her body and brave enough to rock it.
Thanks to a nude dancer named Micheline Bernardini who was up to the task, she showed up to bring out the beauty of Réard’s invention.
On July 11 1946, Micheline became the first women to wear a bikini, during a press show in Paris.
