Every year, 5 July is celebrated as International Bikini Day.  The day marks the anniversary of the invention of the bikini in 1946 by Louis Reard, a Parisian fashion designer. This year will mark the 76th anniversary of the outfit's invention.

A bikini is a two-piece bathing suit, which is effortlessly sexy. Owing to its risque design, this two-piece bathing suit was slow to be adopted by women and is still considered obscene in many cultures. Through its annual observance, International Bikini day aims to celebrate swimwear and its invention.

International Bikini Day History-
Even though some evidence of the use of bikinis can be traced back to the 1930s, the bathing suit gained prominence in 1946, owing to material rationing after the Second World War. Louis Reard ran his bikini shop for around 40 years and the first model to don the outfit was Micheline Bernardini.  Reard drew inspiration to name the swimwear from the hydrogen bomb testing incident in Bikini Atoll in the US.

International Bikini Day Significance-
A bikini is a staple summer wear and is the smallest bathing suit. Considered to be a revolutionary outfit, this two-piece bathing suit allowed women to flaunt their bodies and sunbathe.
