Is there any reason why i can't wear a bikini top as a bra?

Not all the time obviously, but I have just taken delivery of all my new perfect fitting bras and I ordered a Freya bikini top too, just to try.

It is gorgeous and sooo comfy, is there any reason why I can't wear it as a bra on holiday, (the straps will look pretty with vests) then when on the beach I can just whip my vest off to get a bit of sun?

I haven't worn in bikini in eons and then only string ones which would have never worked as a bra.

Of course you can. Major advantage is that it'll wash and dry super quick.

Dont see why not - so long as it is a proper 'bra style' bikini top.

Go for it.

Is this an ad?

Don't think so cornflower, WTWTW is not long converted to the advantages of a properly fitting bra thus super entusiastic, IIRC

Roffle no, not adgrin

Genuine enquiry.

The 'perfect fitting bras' bit is because I have been on the recent bra threads and found my correct size.

Reading back does sound cheesyblush

I almost always stick to bikinis as daytime underwear on holiday, so much easier than changing several times a day. I'd consider doing it in the UK too with a lower cut halterneck top/dress as my strapless bra often shows at the front.

I used to wear halter neck bikinis as bras so I could wear halter neck tops as strapless bras always look so bad with them.
