Bikini Beginnings

The bikini was named after bomb tests at Bikini Atoll

The modern bikini was introduced and named by a French engineer called "Louis RĂ©ard" in 1946

He named it after the atomic bomb tests that were happening at Bikini Atoll - People were shocked and horrified by the atomic bomb, he wanted them to feel shocked and horrified about his swimsuit, too.
