See the rest of the bikini clad babes at The Rack Up!
There are many reasons to love summer, BBQ’s, sports, and vacations, but this could easily be the best reason the summer time is the best time (bikini season to be exact) and this photo set is a fine example of what we mean. The temperature definitely rises in each photo. Thanks The Rack Up.
Wikipedia’s profile on the Bikini:
The name for the bikini design was coined in 1946 by Parisian engineer Louis Réard, the designer of the bikini. He named the swimsuit after Bikini Atoll, where testing on the atomic bomb was taking place. Fashion designer Jacques Heim, also from Paris, re-released a similar design earlier that same year, the Atome.
Yet More revealing than a one-piece swimsuit, the bikini was slow to be adopted, and in many countries it was banned from beaches and public places. Furthermore, the Vatican declared it sinful. While still considered risqué, the bikini gradually became a part of popular culture when film stars—Brigitte Bardot, Raquel Welch, Ursula Andress and others—began wearing them on public beaches and in film.
