It’s been 71 years since designer Louis Reard debuted the bikini swimsuit, which makes Wednesday National Bikini Day.

The revealing suit at first was not popular, but thanks to Hollywood stars like Raquel Welch, Brigitte Bardot, and music like the “Itsy Bitsy Teenie-Weenie Yellow Polkadot Bikini,” sales for the suit began to take off in the 1960s. (RELATED: Kate Upton Topless On 2017 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover)
