July Is Bikini Month: Happy 67th Anniversary

The bikini has been stretched and shrunk over time and has gone from traditional to thong to string to mono and to micro. The mono-kini is a bikini bottom only that many men bodybuilders wear in competitions, and the micro-kini makes an average bikini look like a blanket. Sales for the 64-year-young bikini remain as brisk as ever with annual sales in the billions. Perhaps the world of fashionable swimwear owes a debt of gratitude to Ms. Micheline Bernardini for being wiling to bare it all on that great day in fashion history, July 5,1946. After all, this same design appeared on Roman women in sports competitions in 300 and 400 BC, according to some very reliable cave walls.

On behalf of JustLuxe and swimsuit designers, bikini models, women, and men who dare to stare, thank you, Ms. Bernardini, for your contribution to making the world a more fashionable and stylish place.

July Is Bikini Month: Happy 67th Anniversary
It is an event so large an entire month is blocked to celebrate its passing. July 5 is the anniversary of the public unveiling of the first bikini! With the anniversary of the first officially unveiling of the teeny weenie itsy bitsy swim suit following just one day after the Fourth of July, why not keep a few rockets in the pocket until July 5 and kickoff the bikini birthday with some firepower?
