Sponsored Edition: Bottoms Up

Lei ChicYour girlfriend was SUPPOSED to watch your back, but she disappeared. There isn’t a single sales person in sight. Now your swimsuit shopping trip has turned into a high school nightmare as you search the packed department store for your BFF – bikini finder friend - trying not to bare it all in a teeny Brazilian that either makes you look saucy, or like a sausage.
