The most valuable collection of swimwear in the world
From 19th century full body clothing to Fio Dental (e.g. floss bikini)

The swimwear collection of the BikiniARTmuseum is unique in the world. It is the only collection that includes swimwear pieces from three centuries and all continents. The collection starts with the beginnings of public bathing and the historical full body garments are among the greatest rarities. It includes highlights from traditional companies such as Triumph, Naturana or Jantzen, extraordinary swimwear from luxury labels (Dior, Chanel, Pucci, etc.) as well as unique rarities such as the "Christ bathing suit" banned by the bishop. The crowning glory of the collection: almost all existing swimwear pieces by Louis Réard, the inventor of the bikini. And "The Golden Réard" - The world's most valuable bikini.

Furthermore: Swimwear from world stars like Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot, Elke Sommer, Esther Williams, Scarlett Johansson, and many more...
