									In 1946, Jacques Heim introduced the Atome, which he called the world's
smallest bathing suit. The Atome was modified by an engineer called Louis
Reard two months later, and named it bikini, after Bikini Atoll, the site
of nuclear weapon tests in the Marshall Islands. He named it so because
of the anticipated excitement it would cause, which would be like a
nuclear bomb exploding.

to buy bikinis in 1957 when Brigitte Bardot wore one in And God Created
Woman, and in 1960, with Brian Hyland's song Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie
Yellow Polka Dot Bikini hitting the charts. The bikini craze actually
started in 1963 with the release of the movie, Bikini Beach. Before that,
the bikini was not welcomed in most parts of the world, including the
United States, and was even banned from the Miss World Contest in 1951.
It was not welcomed because of the greater amount of skin shown when
wearing a bikini. Today, the bikini is seen as commonplace in most
Western countries, and is worn by many of even the most conservative of
women.One Piece Bathing Suits provides detailed information on bathing
