Bikini's Birthday!

Today is Bikini's official birthday! She is 59 years old. It was on this day in Paris in 1946 that Louis Reard had his famous design of swimwear modelled. And the "invention" went on to inspire that great Brian Hyland number - "Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini" in 1960.

Since then the Bikini has gain in popularity all round the world and is an absolute must for beach volleyball. No wonder the Olympic bosses wanted it in the games!
