    Bikini

    Mai 18th, 2013

    A bikini is a swimmsuit which contains two pieces: A top part and a bottom part. It was invented in 1946 in Paris by fashion designer Jacques Heim (1899–1967). Due to its small size, Heim called the bikini the atom. His invention was prohibited to wear on US public beaches until the 1960s. Today, the bikini is the most popular female beachwear around the globe.
