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.

But looking back more than a hundred years, I’m even prouder of the progress women have made together.
