A Brief History About The Thong Bikini

A Brief History About The Thong Bikini

Aaron Belyea

Ah, the tantalizing tale of the thong bikini, a daring garment that has graced beaches and poolsides worldwide! Let's take a cheeky journey through its history:

Once upon a time, in the sun-kissed lands of Brazil, it all began in the 1970's.

A daring fashion designer by the name of Rose de Primallio decided it was time to liberate the derrieres of beachgoers. She took the traditional bikini and gave it a saucy twist, reducing the coverage of the bottom to a daringly tiny strip. The thong bikini was born!

At first, this bold creation raised eyebrows and caused quite a stir. People couldn't believe their eyes! It was as if fashion had taken a wild plunge into uncharted waters. Puritans gasped, conservatives cringed, but the thrill-seekers rejoiced.

As the years rolled on, the thong bikini gained momentum and popularity, becoming a symbol of confidence, freedom, and, let's admit it, a bit of provocation. In the '80s, it slithered its way onto the beaches of Europe, causing an even bigger splash. From the sun-kissed coasts of Spain to the glamorous shores of the French Riviera, the thong bikini became a staple of beach fashion.

But like any trend, it experienced its ups and downs. The '90s saw a bit of a butt backlash, as more conservative styles tried to reclaim the spotlight. However, this little cheeky number wasn't going to fade away that easily. Oh no!

In the early 2000s, the thong bikini made a triumphant comeback, with celebrities and influencers flaunting their toned assets in glossy magazines and all over the internet. It became a must-have for those daring souls who wanted to leave little to the imagination.

Today, the thong bikini continues to hold its ground, proudly worn by sun-worshippers and beach bums alike. Whether you're lounging on the sandy shores of Rio de Janeiro or strutting your stuff at Kellys Beach in Kouchibouguac, the thong bikini's legacy lives on, leaving a trail of turned heads and dropped jaws in its wake.

Embrace that inner sass.
