Hollywood is notorious for showcasing scenes with bikini clad actresses in films to infuse a sexual component, regardless of whether or not it coincides with the storyline. Parody films almost always highlight some bikini scenes just to show how ridiculous those slow motion shots look on screen, and horror flicks somehow seem to include a girl running for her life in a skimpy swimsuit- every single time. It has become a normal occurrence for films to include at least one scene of a beautiful actress in a bikini or sexy swimsuit, and no one seems to bat an eye.
This definitely isn’t a new concept, since Marilyn Monroe even swam in the buff during the film Something’s Gotta Give. However, catching a glimpse of Monroe’s full-coverage panties in The Seven Year Itch isn’t exactly as risqué as it once was. Hollywood has definitely amped up its game when it comes to what is considered provocative and sexy on screen, and this includes bikini scenes.
Bikini scenes that would have caused quite a stir back in the time of Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn, are now just part of the norm in all of the top blockbuster films. However, there are some that go above and beyond when it comes to shooting just the right scene to flaunt the body of a bikini-clad actress. Swimming at a pool, coming out of the ocean, or using a pool-side shower, each successive film has certainly been creative in trying to make its bikini scene stand out from all the rest. Check out our list of the 15 sexiest bikini scenes in film, and see if your favorite made the cut.

1 Fast Times at Ridgemont High
Released in 1982, Fast Times at Ridgemont High isn’t exactly present-day, but what it lacks in being current it more than makes up for in iconic status. Like other coming-of-age films like Dazed and Confused, it represented a particular quintessential time. Starring some of the biggest names in Hollywood earlier in their careers, Sean Penn, Nicolas Cage, and Forest Whitaker all made an appearance in Fast Times at Ridgemont High. However, it’s the scene with Phoebe Cates in the now-infamous red bikini that people mostly remember. Coming out of the pool in a seamless slow-motion style maneuver and then going on to remove her top, this is a scene that would be hard to dethrone at the number one spot.
