A bikini is a women's two-piece swimsuit featuring two triangles of fabric on top that cover the woman's breasts , and two triangles of fabric on the bottom: the front covering the pelvis but exposing the navel , and the back covering the buttocks. In May , Parisian fashion designer Jacques Heim released a two-piece swimsuit design that he named the Atome 'Atom' and advertised as "the smallest swimsuit in the world". No runway model would wear it, so he hired a nude dancer from the Casino de Paris named Micheline Bernardini to model it at a review of swimsuit fashions. Due to its revealing design, the bikini was considered controversial, facing opposition from a number of groups and being accepted only very slowly by the general public.
