Ashley Graham Shows the Best Bathing Suit Hack for Women With Bigger Chests

Ashley Graham is no stranger to a good bra hack, which she made known back in May with her life-changing strapless bra tip. Now she’s pulling a page from body-positivity crusader Allison Kimmey’s book to achieve a well-fitted bathing suit top.

In Graham’s Instagram story on Tuesday evening, she featured a video from Kimmey’s account showing a better way for women with bigger chests to wear a bikini. The video, originally posted on National Bikini Day, revealed Kimmey’s trick to relieving pressure on her neck caused by a halter bathing suit top. By tying each neck string to its opposite back string, you convert the top into a crossback top that distributes pressure evenly on the shoulders and back. Yeah, it’s genius.


The July 5 video has garnered more than 55,000 views, which is now only increasing after Graham’s own take on the hack. With two different halter tops from her own Swimsuits for All line, Graham illustrated another comfortable way to make sure you’re getting all the support you need from your bikini.

The model rocked her tops in a straight spaghetti-strap fashion, giving herself the same upgraded support with a seemingly less complicated redesign. From the look of her photos, it’s definitely working.
