    Louis Réard

    Louis Réard, French automobile engineer, co-inventor of the bikini in 1946, lived from 1897 to 1984. Together with Jacques Heim, a fashion designer, they produced the world’s smallest swimsuit, a bra top that contained two little triangles of cloth connected by a string. Réard called his creation the bikini, named after the Bikini Atoll, one of a series of islands in the South Pacific, the site of atomic bomb testing.
