The first bikini was born in the Ancient Greece. After centuries of oblivion, the bikini reappears in 1947 on the French beaches. First banned as a vulgar item, it ends up being socially tolerated in the late 60s. The last forty years demonstrate the apotheosis of the bikini. Rejected so many times, it is now an ally of tanned bodies. Isn’t it time to shop for the perfect bikini?
The women of all shapes and sizes can be able to feel confident in a bikini, if they will embrace their figures and natural beauty, and will opt for intelligent swimwear with a smart cut. Don’t look up to an illusory standard of beauty. Look for the best combination for your body and mood.
Life should be about rocking it in bikini. Dive in.
