Trivia Thursday: Are Explosives behind the term ‘Bikini’?

Trivia Thursday: Are Explosives behind the term ‘Bikini’?

If you think women look like a bomb in a Bikini, well, that was exact intention. French designer Jacques Heim in 1946, introduced a rather modest two-piece swimsuit covering the naval area, that eventually failed to get any attention. Soon after, Parisian engineer and designer Louis  Réard came out with the modern version of the two-piece. A G-string made of 30 square inches of cloth, modeled on a 19-year-old nude dancer Micheline Bernardini, it of course became all the rage! Réard knew the swimsuit would garner an ‘explosive social and cultural reaction’ and hence named it Bikini, after Bikini Atoll, a small island where the US forces were testing their nuclear bombs. And truly, French fashion writer, Diana Vreeland termed the bikini as the ‘atomic bomb of fashion.’
