A woman selling a bikini online was asked for a photo of it being worn so the man "could see what it looked like before buying" - so she gave him exactly what he asked for.

Tess Wilson had posted a photo of a black swimsuit in size small on Facebook Marketplace for about £4 before receiving a message from 'potential buyer' that she had originally planned to ignore.

It read: "Any pics with being worn like to see what it looks like on before buying."

Tess, from Georgia, US, was having none of the man's request and paid it no attention, but her brother seized the opportunity to take revenge instead.

She decided to give him exactly what he asked for
Her brother Kade's expert modelling was compared to a Victoria's Secret professional

After the siblings hatched the plan, Tess replied "sure one sec" before sending a series of photos of her brother Kade modelling the string bikini like a pro, striking some beach babe poses for the inquisitive shopper.

The reply left Facebook users in stitches after Tess shared the messages, writing: "So, I'm selling a bathing suit on Facebook yard sale and a man comments and asks me if he can see a picture of it being worn before buying...

"Of course I was going to ignore the comment but Kade just couldn't resist."

The exchange went viral on Facebook

The post, which has recently resurfaced after originally being shared in 2017, went viral with one writing: "Your brother just became my hero."

A second said: "Good one! You have got a great brother."

But others were more impressed by Kade's blossoming bikini modelling career, as one gushed: "Boy pulled it off like a Victoria Secret model."

Another added: "Your brother’s bikini bod puts mine to shame."

It's not the first time an online seller has tricked people sending pervy messages, after a woman selling high heels online was inundated with messages from men similarly asking to see them being worn.

Believing the men had no interest in buying the shoes, she tried to rope in her boyfriend to show them off, but his feet were too big.

Luckily, her dog's dainty paws didn't have the same problem and she sent across pictures of her pet rocking the high heels - and the interest suddenly disappeared. You can see the hilarious photos here.
