DIY: Scrunchy Bikini Bottoms

Spring time is finally here and the flowers are starting to bloom, the sky is getting a lot brighter, and life is getting that much better! But aside from that, another exciting thing that is rapidly approaching is… can you guess what it is? SPRING BREAK!!! Not only that but we can now toss our big sweaters, scarves, and boots to the side and put on some cute summer dresses, shorts, sandals, bikinis/swimwear, and huge floppy hats! Since the weather is getting warmer and most of us are probably going to spend our time at the beach or somewhere outdoors during spring break, there are some things that I like to consider bringing with me before I leave the house. Aside from all the essentials such as sunblock, sunglasses, a towel, and tanning oil, I like to make sure that I put on the proper bikini and I don’t mean just any bikini, I mean a bikini with scrunchy bottoms! Yep, those are my favs. Why do you ask? Simple. Because it makes my butt look FABULOUS! And who doesn’t want a nice butt? Exactly. What’s even better is that I found a quick and simple way to make these “scrunchy bottoms” by yourself with literally just a safety pin!!! So if your bikini bottoms are looking a little boring, try this trick to give them a little umph 😉 

Here’s what you’ll need:

Step 1: If you have straps, untie them. If not, flip your bikini bottoms inside out. You might want to cut off the tag also to make your life easier haha

Step 2: Start off with the back part facing you and the front of the bikini bottom facing the other way. Then, begin piercing the safety pin at the top center of the bikini bottom. Make sure that you are doing this on the inside of your bikini bottoms.

Step 3: After piercing it, you should be on the outside of your bikini. Now take about half an inch and pierce it back inside the bikini. You’re basically weaving it into the needle.

Step 4: Scrunch it and continue taking a half inch and weaving back and forth about 5-6 times. photo 4 (2) photo 5 (2)

Step 5: Secure the safety pin.

And you’re done! This is how the back side should look like =) If this is not your cup of tea then have no fear because you can either undo some of the scrunch and make it less scrunchy or you can easily just remove the safety pin and it would look perfectly normal! For those of you that do like this type of bikini bottom, I hope this helped you and I hope you don’t forget to bring extra safety pins for you and your friends on your next trip. Have a fun and safe break everyone! Stay weird my friends =)
