Shake your bikini bonbons

When you try on a bikini or swimsuit, you usually stand and watch yourself in a mirror, right? You might bend forward a little, turn around slowly to see the result from different angles, but that’s it. You like how it looks? You buy it.

But have you ever realized, after a day on the beach or a few laps in the pool, that your brand new swimwear is not very comfortable at all? As a matter of fact, when you catch your reflection at the end of the day, it looks all wrong; you might have ‘side boobs’, your breasts may be spilling over the cups, or the back strap is riding up. Well, I developed a method to avoid ever wasting money like that again! With it, you can see how your bikini top or swimsuit will ft after hours of fun in the sun, and you don’t even have to leave the dressing room.

step 01 – Choose your marlies|dekkers swimwear piece.

step 02 – Put on the bikini top or bathing suit.

step 03 – Bend your upper body forward until your breasts fall into the cups.

step 04 – Hold the underwire firmly and position your breasts.

step 05 – Shake your top to make sure that your breasts are positioned perfectly.

step 06 – Stand up and admire the result: FABULOUS!
