The History of the Bikini

Sending quivers down your backbone with 8 bomb cheeky bikinis

Diana Vreeland said the “bikini was the most important thing since the atom bomb.”  Check this: the Bikini Atoll Islands (where the U.S. tested nuclear bombs) are its namesake.   Forty four years later Bikini Kill formed and Kathleen Hanna danced (and thrashed) onstage in, you guessed it, a bikini.  Both women were feminists in their own right and believed that women would not be oppressed by common stereotypes and misogynist viewpoints.  These women are, and were, both present and ahead of their time; they were revolutionaries.

The cheeky bikini is a revolutionary take on an old fashion (circa 100 A.D.!) that continues to stir up controversy where ever it goes… If people were shocked in the 40’s,  how they feeling now? In the words of Penny Lane (i.e. Kate Hudson in Almost Famous) “It’s all happening.”  It’s time to represent for real women everywhere.  

According to 2nd Skin Bikinis there’s 10 different styles of cheeky bikinis, from sultry straight up Brazilian thongs to surfer friendly low rise briefs and mythical mermaid tails.  The cheeky is for everyone: for curves that serve, straight hips, pear shapes and apple bottoms; It’s all about the confidence you carry.  Various are the styles and colors. From girlish bows, to bohemian prints, to glittering metallics, 2SB has you covered…if you know what I mean.  Cop your cheeky exclusively at or coming soon to an independent beach boutique near you! 2SB cheekies are available in Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, and the United States.

The girls are not afraid to come out of the locker (and Brian Hyland is rolling in his grave; FYI he wrote that song about a tiny yellow polka dot bikini)…  They’re running and screaming all over the sandy beaches of the world. 

The female energy moves like light, they are the movers and shakers of the fashion world, of the world period.  We are killing it-in and out of water.
