Sarah made a TikTok about her bralette and micro thong after her boyfriend and boyfriend referred to her as playing “Dorito bikini”
Sarah, a 28-year-old software engineer, told Insider that she decided to take a chance on a silver bra and micro thong after they went on sale. She had previously bought a two-tone bralette for a summer music festival but tried the mini thong as soon as the lingerie arrived at her house after a recent order.
“I laughed so hard at how small it was,” Sarah said. “I was surprised at how small their bottoms were, especially when you tried them on over clothes. They were all strings.”
The idea to share a size comparison on TikTok started after Sarah’s boyfriend, Ryan, and their mutual friend, Sean, made fun of their bralette and micro thong.
“My friend Ryan and our best friend Sean used to call it the Dorito bikini when I first put the shirt on,” Sarah said. “We were crying laughing at the size of the bottoms, and he pulled the tortilla chips out of the cupboard and made a comparison. The chips were bigger than all the fabric on a bikini.”
Sarah said her boyfriend later sent her the photo, and she first posted it on her Instagram Stories before sharing it on TikTok. The video quickly went viral across the app, garnering more than 7.9 million views in less than a week and nearly 5,000 comments from TikTok users — many of whom mocked the ordeal.
“(Opens a bag of Doritos) skates the con,” one comment garnered 20,000 read likes.
“A thick 5-layer burrito is at least 5 tortilla chips,” another comment added 67,000 likes.
Even Urban Decay’s official TikTok account weighed in, writing: “Pass your insides.”
According to Sarah, the jokes and combination of double entendres stood out to her when the video started to gain traction online.
“I was surprised when Urban Decay Cosmetics’ social media manager started getting in on the jokes,” Sarah said. “I’m waiting to see if Kim will give a reaction.”
And while most of the comments were for laughs, some TikTok users pointed out that the bralette would be a perfect fit for those with smaller chest sizes.
“Finally a bra for me,” one person wrote.
