Bikini Name

- Sep 26, 2018 -

On June 30, 1946, the atomic bomb exploded on the Bikini Atoll in the Pacific Ocean. Eighteen days later, a Frenchman named Louis Reard introduced a bra-style top and a pair of swimwear. That day he hired a call girl to be a model and showed his work in a public swimming pool. A week later, the bikini has swept Europe!

Bikini Atoll, located at 11°35' north latitude and 165°25' east longitude, is a barrier reef belonging to the Marshall Islands. From 1946 to 1958, the United States carried out more than 60 atomic bombs and hydrogen bomb explosions in the Marshall Islands, the largest of which was on this small island. At the same time, the inventor believes that its influence is no different from a nuclear explosion, so it was named this "bikini swimsuit" in the bikini atoll!
