A bikini is typically a women's two-piece swimsuit featuring two triangles of fabric on top, similar to a bra and covering 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. His skimpy design was risque, exposing the wearer's navel and much of her buttocks. No runway model would wear it, so he hired a nude dancer , Micheline Bernardini, from the Casino de Paris to model it at a review of swimsuit fashions. Due to its controversial and revealing design, the bikini was accepted very slowly by the public. The swimsuit gained increased exposure and acceptance as film stars like Brigitte Bardot , Raquel Welch , and Ursula Andress wore them and were photographed on public beaches and seen in film. In many countries the design was banned from beaches and other public places. The minimalist bikini design became common in most Western countries by the mids as both swimwear and underwear. By the late 20th century it was widely used as sportswear in beach volleyball and bodybuilding.

I crawled out of bed, still wearing my Cracker Barrel uniform from the night before and managed to make my way over to the coffee machine. I grabbed my pumpkin spiced coffee, walked over to the couch, and opened his laptop. It was like the television was somehow warning me. My whole body went numb. My thoughts began to race.
