National Bikini Day – July 5, 2023

This Saturday, July 5, is National Bikini Day, making it the ideal time to visit the beach. So grab your sunscreen. The anniversary of the creation of the two-piece bathing suit is commemorated on National Bikini Day. The bikini was difficult to catch on because of its provocative design, but it eventually acquired popularity when movie stars like Ava Gardner and Brigitte Bardot started to wear them on public beaches and in their movies. The garment was unquestionably one of the greatest innovations of all time, and it was given the name Bikini after the South Pacific atoll where nuclear tests were conducted in 1946 because of the alleged "explosive" impact it had produced. Prepare to celebrate this summertime stalwart with us.
