Swimsuit season is upon us. Are you ready? I am. My fun hardcore workouts have paid off, and now is the perfect time to show it off. Swimsuits come in a wide range of cuts and styles, but my favorite is the bikini. I own a different one for each activity: a sturdy one for surfing, a skimpy number for lounging in the sand, and a basic one for doing laps in the pool. Fun fact: The bikini, invented by Louis Réard, was named after the Bikini Atoll in the Pacific, the site of the Operation Crossroads nuclear weapon test on July 1, 1946. The reasoning? Because, like a nuclear device, it would cause a burst of excitement! Are you ready for the swimwear challenge?
