There was a thread of women complaining that bikini tops have wardrobe malfunctions if you actually go swimming in them. One lady said she simply wore a sports bra (over or instead of) her bikini top. Off-topic but another woman said she wore mens boxers to bed. They weren’t tight like panties or pajamas, but didn’t climb up like a nightshirt or gown. I’d like to thank Reddit for giving a man like me such good tips on being a woman.

It’s good to get measured for a properly sized and fitted bra ….can make a world of difference
