Swim wear – Bikini – Bathing Suits

Swim wear can be easy or hard to find, depending on how picky you have become when it comes to their shapes and cuts. Two-piece swimwear became popular through the Olympic games around 1910 and Hollywood introduced two-piece bikini’s through movie Neptune’s daughter in 1949 after the Pin Ups of Hollywood in early 1940’s. The modern bikini finally were designed by a french engineer named Louis Reard and fashion designer Esther Williams in late 1940’s.
