It happened on this day…July 5th

On this day in 1946 the bikini debuted at a Paris fashion show. The skimpy two-piece bathing suit was designed by Louis Reard. It was named after an atoll in the Pacific Ocean where the world’s first peacetime atomic-weapons test was conducted at Bikini on July 1, 1946.
