Although the Brazilian bikini is a worldwide reference, who invented it was a Frenchman, Louis Réard, who launched a collection of swimsuits in 1946. At that time the swimsuit model was not well accepted by the society. However, over time, and thanks to the use of the bikini in American films, especially the one used by Brigitte Bardot in Et Dieu… Créa la Femme, the swimwear became a huge success.
In Brazil, it first appeared in 1948 and since then, the bikini was adapting to the fashion preferences of Brazilian women. Some models like “asa-delta” and “fio-dental” are the hallmark of Brazilian beaches, being applauded and copied all over the world.
The colours, daring and quality of Brazilian bikinis have been doing successfully around the world.
