  1. Have to disagree about your Thong comment. The truth is that the thong’s first public U.S. appearance was at the 1939 World’s Fair when New York Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia mandated that the city’s nude dancers cover themselves. And fashion designer Rudi Gernreich has been credited with introducing the first thong bikini in 1974. Fredricks sold their first thong in 1980
