First thing you should do is get yourself a coconut!
Check the coconuts for the right size and shape.

Tools & materials you will need:

Spoon
Knife
Saw
Permanent marker
Sand paper
Steel wool
Power multi-tool
Wood polish (optional)
Thin shoe laces

Step 2: Saw the coconut in two pieces

Saw the coconut in two pieces. Try to make them as even in size as possible.

Slice & remove the (white) edible part of the coconut with a knife.
Use the spoon to help it loosen from its shell.
Use the coconut meat to whip up a coconut cream pie or for some crazy cocktail.

Step 3: Use the sand paper to smooth the edges

Use the sand paper to smooth the edges of the coconut husk, no pointy edges should exist where the coconut will come in contact with the skin.
It has to be comfortable.
Place the coconut husk in warm water, this will soften the rough part of the husk, rub it with steel wool until you are left with a smooth, clean coconut shell.
Trim any rough edges of the husk with sand paper. A power tool makes the job quicker in less time.

Step 4:

Choose the final positioning of the bikini top and mark the shells with an oval shape.
This will make the coconut look more like a bikini top. Rather than looking just a coconut cut in half .

Make the cut with the power multi-tool or with a saw. Again trim all the edges with sand paper so it looks and feels smooth.

As a matter of fact,Coconut shell can be eat in some way

I love your idea,but it looks just for A-cup

I can confirm that it is larger than a B cup - probably closer to a C on a small frame. I had something similar once and it had lightweight quilted cloth on the inside and around the edges for comfort.

So, is this a one size fits all or do your coconuts come in various sizes?

Shoelaces give a slick look, but for an "islands" look, might use leather thong or a fiber rope.

No point smoothing the edges until you come to the right final edge shape. Breasts stick out of a compound-curving oval cylinder (rib cage) so expect to curve most of the edge.

hmmm....i doubt it would be comfortable and i think you would have to have pretty small breasts to wear it. far more appealing to straight men than anyone else.
