When is National Bikini Day 2024?

National Bikini Day is the perfect opportunity to head to the nearest or maybe the furthest beach, grab some sun therapy (don’t forget the sunscreen), or renew your bikini bod resolution!

What is National Bikini Day?

National Bikini Day is the anniversary of the invention of the bikini. The bikini was invented in 1946 by Parisian fashion designer, Louis Reard.

Slow to be adopted by the world initially, the bikini has grown to become an iconic representation of summertime fun in most countries. 

Though known as National Bikini Day, the day originated in France and not the USA so technically it’s International Bikini Day.

Fun Fact – Marilyn Monroe posed in a bikini for the first time in the movie “How to Marry a Millionaire” in 1953. This move helped to popularize the bikini and encourage acceptance socially.
