Whether you're lounging in the Hamptons, Cannes, Jamaica, or even by a rooftop pool in NYC, you will be in bikinis all summer. We here at Guest of a Guest took an interest in the history behind the bikini, one of the biggest trends of the 20th century. Named after the nuclear tests in Bikini Atoll, take a look at how the bikini transformed from a full-body gown in the Victorian Era to the scandalous two-piece set we know today.
