A bikini is a two-piece swimsuit for women. One piece covers the breasts and the other piece covers the buttocks and the area of skin in between theses two pieces are exposed.
It is said that the word ‘bikini’ is termed after ‘Bikini Atoll’ which is a place in Marshall Islands where nuclear weapons are tested. It was named so because a bikini creates a burst of excitement that is just like an atom bomb.
Though bikinis were first created in 1946 it took 15 years to be accepted in the United States. Bikinis were made popular in the movies, which gradually inspired the public. The bikinis were greatly in use by the French but in Catholic countries like Spain, Portugal and Italy bikinis were banned on the beaches.
Recently, the lower part of the bikini has come to be known as the monokini. When one combines a tank top with a bikini bottom it is referred to as a tankini.
