How to Tie a Bikini Top Without It Looking Bulky

2 Minutes

Here, I’m going to show you how to tie a bikini top without it looking bulky.

Sometimes when you put a tie-neck swimsuit or bikini top on, you end up with a big bulky bow in the back.

It’s uncomfortable, tends to sag, and it’s just not cute. Here’s my trip to banish the bulk!

Tying knot

1. Tie a knot on each side

With your swimsuit on, take each of the straps and tie them into a little knot, but don’t close the knot. 

Threading ends

2. Thread ends through

Take the tails of each knot and thread them through the open knot on the other side.


3. Tighten

Then give the ends a little pull to tighten them.

This will give you a nice clean knot in the back. As opposed to a regular knot, this method gives you more control, is adjustable throughout the day, and gives you more support.

With the summer coming up, this is definitely a good hack to know about. Give it a try, and let me know what you think!
