The bikini has had an interesting history! Thought to be utterly scandalous when it was first presented in Paris fashion week, 1945, the bikini slowly grew in popularity when it was worn by icons Brigitte Bardot (1957) in And God Created Woman and Ursula Andress (1962) in Dr No. The bikini has been synonymous with surf style since the 1963 movie Beach Party. Now not scandalous at all, the bikini is the swim wear of choice for surfer chicks who want to enjoy the beach and waves and get an all over tan at the same time!
Surf brands Animal, Billabong, Moontide, Rip Curl and Roxy swimwear have loads of styles of bikini available- there’s definitely one to suit your shape: bandeau; halterneck; thin straps; thick straps; tie sides; low rider bottoms and Moontide’s D/DD styles, which are specially designed for larger busts.
