Photo Essay: The Evolution of the Bikini
16 years ago
I thought it started with the Romans?
So the original 1946 model required a man to hold the top on for you? Interesting concept.
This site is not yet ready for an inline image of me in mine.
Please let us not follow this up with The Evolution of Guys in Speedos.
Interesting link! I loved that Bikinis were named after a nuclear testing site.
So the original 1946 model required a man to hold the top on for you?
Yes, unfortunately it had to be a flamboyantly gay Frechman with a pencil mustache, which really hindered sales.
Isn't "flamboyantly gay Frechman" rather redundant?
OK, I call incomplete on this photo essay. They've got Halle Berry
evoking the memory
of Ursula Andress in
but no picture of Ursula's actual defining moment? WTF?
The evolution of the bikini is nothing more than a theory and I find it disappointing - but telling - that someone in such a position of responsibility at this site as Monkeybashi herself should be peddling such Godless propaganda.
For a second, I thought you said "Goddess propaganda."
In the interest of equality, bet you're all sorry now that you missed
Lara, that's all kinds of wrong. *looks again, just to be sure*
That looks like...hmm... Nope, #2's Speedos are still there.
This is hot. My holy scepter has disrobed and begun to throb. As global warming grips the world we shall all dress less. Huzzah!
Dress less, eat less, travel less, earn less, relax less, live less. Yes, Huzzah to global warming.
The thong bikini is just WRONG!
Ursula Andress? Don't worry, Underpants Monster.
are hard at work reconstructing the images you seek.

Did they perhaps dehydrate them? Issue one to each customer as they walked out the door? Inquiring minds want to know. . .
step on a sea urchin in her bikini, too?
