In 1946 when the French fashion designer Jacques Heim who invented the two-peace bathing suit was about to reveal his creation, he looked around for a name that would attract a attention.

At that time, the world press was full of accounts of the US military's testing of atomic and hydrogen bombs on the, you guessed it, Bikini atoll. It was a name that was on everyone's lips so the designer adopted it for his new swim suit.

The idea was that it would have as much effect on the beach and an A bomb. (By the way, the original bikini was strapless. Shoulder straps were added later because the tops evolved into being so small that they weren't self supporting.)
