How about a little history lesson? Be patient, I promise you babes at the end of it. The bikini swimsuit was invented by French engineer Louis Réard in the 1940s, transforming the world of swimwear forever. Instead of being confined to stuffy one-pieces, women could now let their bodies go on display to stunning effect. The initial reaction was shock and scandal, but over the decades the bikini has become the iconic item of female swimwear. Réard’s initial designs were simple and iconic, but beachwear knows no true master and the bikini has undergone thousands of unusual transformations since then.

And if Réard were alive today he would be pretty shock to see how far his invention has come. But we’ve decided to reel in just ten of the strangest, most bizarre and craziest bikinis out there. Because apparently wearing a normal two-piece bikini isn’t something that some women want to wear. So check out the slideshow below and prepared to be baffled.
