Happy 66th birthday, bikinis!

Fun summer fact: The bikini turns 66 years old today!

The brainchild of French designer Louis Réard, this risqué two-piece was first unveiled in Paris at the Piscine Molitor, an Art Deco swimming pool complex that was modeled after—wait for it—a cruise ship. Not bad, right?


In light of the holiday, we highly, highly suggest popping over to our swim shop—then immediately heading to a body of water near you.
