Back when our grandmothers were making fat-stuffed casseroles for our parents, seat belts were an automotive upgrade, and women were expected to wear crinolines, and various other un-sexy undergarments, there was a pioneer: Louis Réard.
The inventor of the bikini celebrates an anniversary today. 64 years of making those of us "not in bikini shape" feel like absolute arse. While the bikini was invented for "real" women, it's now for waifs and tanned sorority girls. Hope you're happy, jerk.
When's the anniversary of the burka? I'll celebrate that one. Thankyouverymuch.
