Why is a three-point swimsuit called a bikini

On June 30, 1946, the atomic bomb exploded on Bikini Atoll in the Pacific Ocean. 18 days later, a Frenchman named Louis reard launched a bra style top and briefs swimsuit. That day he hired a call girl as a model and showed his work in a public swimming pool. A week later, bikini became popular in Europe.

The inventors of bikini were two Frenchmen, Jacques Heim and Louis reard. But they were not the first to think of the bikini idea. As early as 1600 BC, there were murals of bikini style swimsuits. Heim is a female fashion designer from Cannes, France. She designed a small swimsuit and named it “atom”. She hired a plane to smoke and write in the air to advertise her design. The plane wrote in the air: “atom – the smallest swimsuit in the world.” Three weeks later, mechanical engineer lild also wrote in the air: “bikini – smaller than the smallest swimsuit in the world.”
