Bikini Day celebrated on 5th July marks the anniversary of the invention of bikini which took place in 1946 by a Parisian fashion designer, Louis Reard.
Now bikini has become a common wear around the world, but more so in the Bollywood film industry where sometimes the male viewers are lured into the theater with the "lalach" of seeing the actress in bikini. The makers who utilise this concept most is Sunny Leone producers, who release movie stills and songs with the actress in skimpy bikinis showing off her hot body.
Not just Sunny to be honest, Dhoom movie series too was mostly sold on the concept of their leading ladies showing of their hot bodies in either bikinis or skimpy clothes.
Today the bikini is not restricted as just a beachwear, it may have been invented by foreigners but Indian designers have incorporated into bikini blouses so that actress can rock a sexy saree with a nice bikini blouse and just get the temperatures soaring.
