A French auto mechanic came up with the concept at the same time as a French Jewish tailor named Jaques Chaim who named it “Atomic”
The French auto mechanic called it
Bikini after the American atomic weapon experiment in the Bikini island.
The first James Bond film “Dr. No”Made Bikini popular..
But never with me
Somewhere there is a photo of me with a poka dot bikini
I was there years old at the time
But I prefer the full length bathing suit even though bikini is easier to remove when changing on a public beach beneath a large bathing towel…
