According to official history, the 5th July marks the 61th anniversary of the modern bikini. Invented by French engineer Louis

Reard and fashion designer Jacques Heim in Paris in 1946, it was named after the Bikini Atoll, the site of nuclear weapon tests

in the Marshall Islands, on the supposed reasoning that the excitement it would cause would be like the impact of an atomic

bomb. Popular in France immediately, it initially caused controversy in many countries and it took until the 1960's before it

became truly universal, helped by the numerous film depictions and the growth of mass tourism.
