On July 5, 1946, the dancer Micheline Bernardini came to the side of the Paris Molitor hotel pool to present a new model of the swimsuit, which many at the time considered “obscene” and “immoral” ). For “indecent attire” was the responsibility of Louis Reard, who helped his mother manage the lingerie store. He had long had the idea of ​​giving clients a perfect tan, watching on the beach how they were trying in vain to push back the straps of their swimsuits, without showing anything superfluous, and once he understood how to do this - of course, with the help of a little swimsuit. More than ten years have passed before the girls in bikinis stopped seeing off with a condemning look. And in many ways it happened thanks to Marilyn Monroe and Brigitte Bardot, who were not shy about showing off their forms and serving as role models for all the fashionistas of that time.
