In 1950, Time asks the Pope American Jersey bath, Fred Cole, and report that this last “don’t has only contempt for famous swimwear bikinis from France “designed for French women, traditionally lower case.
«French women have shorter, legs he explains to Time magazine. Swimsuits designed for them must go further back on the hips to give the impression that their legs are longer.»
Yes, but the legs of Brigitte Bardot did not need help. This photo was taken at the Cannes film festival, in 1953, at a time or the bikini is becoming the holding of rigor on the Côte d’Azur.
The outfit is still too risque for the United States, where she is still regarded as the outfit that snapped up be more HARLOTS Mediterranean women.
A few years ago, Sports Illustrated has resulted a number of 1957 of the Modern Girl magazine where one could thus read:
“It is almost useless waste his time to talk about this famous bikini since it is simply inconceivable that a girl with a simple ounce of tact and decency are advised to wear such a thing
Three summers later, the bikini had yet become commonplace on American beaches. This was due, to a large extent, the growing popularity of the private swimming pools, giving women the opportunity to test these new outfits out of sight.
One of the leaders of the Neiman Marcus chain purchases designated bikini as the ‘big thing’ in 1960. Brian Hyland was also a great success the same year with his song
«Itsy Bitsy, Teenie Weenie, Yellow Polka Dot Bikini”(recovery in french by mcat-test-centers under the name of Itsi Bitsi bikini small) whose lyrics take a whole new meaning when one thinks that this outfit is not yet widespread, far from it.
It is therefore not surprising that the protagonist of the song “was afraid to go bathing” and “was afraid to leave his cabin. .»
Bikini soon spreads all over. In 1965, a woman can say magazine Time that he is’cheesy resquep’ of not wearing a bikini on the beach – and she’s probably not far off.
In 1967, the magazine claims as well as “65% of young women have already taken this step.” Number special swimsuits for Sports Illustrated magazine did not hesitate to put a bikini on its cover in 1964 white.
The growing popularity of the bikini is further enhanced by its appearance in many movies like How to Stuff a Wild Bikini with Annette Funicello and one million years BC with Raquel Welch. One of the first and most memorable appearances of the Bikini is certainly in James Bond against Dr. No, in 1962. (An American critic who had attended a press screening had stated that ‘the actress Ursula Andress fills a wet bikini as she would inflate two spinnakers Leeward.”)»)
Bikini certainly paid homage to the body of Raquel Welsch and his sisters, with opulent breasts and stomach some released (in the first shots of bikini, it is clear that models fit the belly). But the 1970s see the appearance of models like Cheryl Tiegs, with the slender build, which is, in essence, become the current canon of beauty.
This has naturally led many women to wonder who would wear the bikini. During the 1960s, Emily Post decreed and bikini “was intended only for women with a perfect body, and for younger.. Since then, a number of creators of swimsuits (and including Malia Mills) have encouraged women of all ages and all types of physical to wear this kind of swimwear.
The Bikini Book from a Bensimon answers in two ways to this thorny question. In a sidebar, in the form of Question and answer, she asks so Norma Kamali, creative very reputable line of swimsuits, which shouldn’t wear a bikini?”Anyone who has the belly”, she replies. But ninety pages later, Gabrielle Reece, a professional volleyball player (and who plays in a bikini) States that it is “self-confidence” that makes this sexy swimsuit. Easy for her to say…
Today, the question that is asked is if very low-cut bikini – appeared in Brazil in the 1970s but which hardly showed in the United States – will eventually become common on the beaches American.
Never, you say? This is an outfit that is generally popular with Latin, usually more licentious than the American girls? Exactly what the Americans thought the Bikini when it appeared.
Only the low-cut shirt to finish or not in the closet of the bathers, the bikini is well located in the United States. But in good septuagenarian, he is somewhat reformed: he still has the power to titillate, but he lost that to shock…
