WOMENS BIKINIS at OOTDOORS
Scotland’s leading online outdoors store.
The name for the bikini design was coined in 1946 by French engineer Louis Réard, the designer of the bikini. He named the swimsuit after Bikini Atoll, where testing on the atomic bomb was taking place. Fashion designer Jacques Heim, also from France, re-released a similar design earlier that same year, the Atome. More revealing than a one-piece swimsuit, the bikini was slow to be adopted, and in many countries it was banned from beaches and public places. The Vatican declared it sinful. While still considered risqué, the bikini gradually became a part of popular culture when film stars, Brigitte Bardot, Raquel Welch, Ursula Andress, and others—began wearing them on public beaches and in film.
