Bikini ( fashion dictionary )

A two piece swimsuit that entered popular culture following a poolside fashion show in Paris in 1946.

Early bikinis were less revealing than currnt versions: tops fully covered the bust and many bottoms covered the hips and upper thigh and bottoms were cut above the mavel. The bikini provided much less coverage with the arrival of the string bikini in the 1970s and shrank even further by the 1980s, with the introduction of the thong bikini. The tankini, following in the tank top style, is a recent addition to the bikini family.
