The 1800's Since the dawn of time, humans have always gone swimming in the nude, or maybe in loin cloths. It was not until the 18th century that swimsuits were invented. Mostly for the purpose of hiding the (female) human body according to the morality of the times. By the mid 1800's, a trip to the beach and swimming became a popular recreation. A need for a special costume that retained modesty but was free enough to enable the wearer to engage in sports became obvious.
 
  Popular swimwear fashion from the 1800's  
Swimwear fashion in the 1900's On 24 August 1905, aged 18, Annette Kellerman became the first woman to attempt to swim the English Channel (pictured right) In 1907, at the height of her popularity, Kellerman was arrested on a Boston beach for indecency - she was wearing one of her fitted one-piece swimsuits. At the turn of the century, the swimsuit begins to become more practical...and provocative. The first major development after the turn of the century is the elimination of the bloomers. By 1905,the bathing dress has neither bloomers nor sleeves. The fashion developing will set trends for decades to come and resonate with Kellerman's exploits.

Bikini fashion in the roaring twenties The roaring 20’s brought out all of Hollywood's stars, which added glamour to the swimsuit. Bathers needed to have one in the latest fashion.  Esther Williams and Dorothy Lamour along with films featuring synchronised swimming stirred up interest in the figure hugging costumes.

The year 1943 in bikini history In 1943 as part of wartime rationing, the U.S. Government ordered a 10 % reduction in fabric used in woman's swimwear. The skirt panel was removed, and out came the bare midriff. At beaches across the country, men paid special attention to women doing their patriotic duty.

important events of the mid 40's in bikini history The "official" version has the bikini invented by 2 French fashion designers, Louis Réard and Jacques Heim in Paris in 1946. Réard's bikini was introduced a few days after the nuclear explosions at Bikini Atoll, a tiny coral island in the Marshall Islands. The thought being its introduction would have the same explosive effect. In fact, Reard and Heim merely reinvented a fashion that had been found, dating back to 1600 B.C. The modern version was merely patented by Louis Reard in 1946. When the bikini was first introduced in 1946, the fashion models of Paris refused to wear it, claiming it scandalous and indecent. It was Micheline Bernardini who paraded onto a runway at a poolside fashion show in Paris. She was a nude dancer hired by Réard.

Real Bikini Contests
The 50's A new decade in bikini history Early into the 1950's, Americans continued to reject the fashion claiming it to risqué and immoral. American women believed the bikini was simply too scandalous. But, in 1956, the movie; "And God Created Woman" featuring French sex kitten Brigitte Bardot is released. This film raises the stakes as a bikini clad 22 year-old Bardot bares her buns and flashes her breasts. Bardot ignites serious interest in the bikini,especially from men!

The year is 1958 Designers claim fabric innovation to be their most fundamental inspiration. In 1958, LYCRA®, a man-made elastane fiber, was invented. Swimwear manufacturers were quick to incorporate LYCRA® fiber into their swimwear products. Early in the 1960s, LYCRA® fiber revolutionised beach wear with it's unique stretch and recovery properties. In beachwear, it replaced thick and heavy swimsuits with light, quick-drying garments like the bikini.
 
The 60's starts to revolutionize the bikini The obvious sex appeal of the bikini spawned numerous surf movies in the early 1960s. The world was introduced to bikini clad Annette Funnicello and her pals dancing on the beach in bikinis. As American morals became more accepting and lenient of the fashion, film stars and models soon began emerging everywhere in the bikini. Many Hollywood bombshells like Jayne Mansfield, Marilyn Monroe, and Ursula Andress (the first Bond girl) all began appearing in the new bikini fashion both on film and off.

The sexual revolution explodes in bikini history The shocking sexual revolution of the 70's caused fashion designers to revamp the bikini and be even more revealing and titillating. String bikinis of the 1970's exposed below the navel, among other things, for the first time. Fashion was pushing the limits with less and less coverage. In Hollywood, the world was introduced to Raquel Welch appearing in the film, One Million Years B.C. Welch appeared in a furry animal-skin bikini. The film launched her career and her hot bikini body to the limits.
