Since July 5, 1946, women have been hitting the beaches and poolsides in bikinis.
And National Bikini Day is officially the anniversary of the invention of the revealing bathing suit.
To mark this sizzling occasion your fun-loving Daily Star has compiled our very own Celebrity Bikini Awards.
JENNIFER DUNKERLEY brings you summer’s big winners so far…
Winner: Bella Hadid This catwalk beauty loves nothing better than a nude shot and always looks bikini ready. Her favourite kind? The itsy bitsy teenie weenie string variety of course.
Winner: Kate Wright Rio Ferdinand’s missus often has her breast assets on display as she lazes by the pool and what better way than in a bikini top.
Winner: Rhian Sugden We love how this model babe isn’t afraid to go for bright colours. This bright pink pattern she recently rocked goes perfectly with her summer tan.
Best body over 50
Winner: Elle Macpherson They called her The Body and, despite being 54, she is still looking as fi t as ever. Take a look at her bikini figure now – it’s as sizzling as it ever was.
Best Mum body
Winner: Abbey Clancy She might have popped out a baby just a few months before but British model and Peter Crouch’s wife Abbey looks as bikini ready as ever on holiday in Barbados.
Best toned abs
Winner: Gigi Hadid When it comes to being bikini ready, there’s no-one better than a Victoria’s Secret supermodel. And Gigi has the perfect flat tum to show off her torso anytime.
Winner: Perrie Edwards You’re on holiday living your best life and looking cute as hell in your new bikini. Why not do an impromptu photoshoot and spam it all over social media?
Best beach bum
Winner: Leigh-Anne Pinnock Here the Little Mixer fl aunts her perfectly perky posterior in teeny bikini bottoms. No wonder she’s always the finest beach bum.
Best fashion range
Winner: Mollie King for Boux Avenue Stylish, sexy and super flattering, you can’t not love The Saturday’s singer’s range for Boux Avenue. It’s bang on trend without the celebrity price-tag.
Most time in a bikini
Winner: Emily Ratajkowski It’s rare to find a time when this babe isn’t in a bikini and her Instagram account is full of sexy swimwear eye-candy we can’t get enough of.
