5 Reasons to Choose a Tankini
Tankini swimwear is a tank top and bottom set that offers coverage of a one piece but offers the convenience of a bikini.
It combines the best bits of both bikinis and one piece swimsuits.
Women’s tankinis were introduced in the late 1990’s and named after the popular 1920’s bathing suit worn in pools and ‘tanks’.
An essential piece for your wardrobe, they are stylish, comfortable, offer full coverage while being functional, flattering for any body type and hugely versatile.
Why choose Tankini Swimwear instead of a one piece suit?
Tankinis give you flattering coverage.
We all want to look great and feel comfortable and confident and choosing a tankini over a one-piece or a bikini will do just that.
As torso length and body shape vary from woman to woman a standard swimsuit will not fit all shapes and sizes as a tankini does.
One of the reasons tankinis are great for long torsos is that there will be not pulling on either the straps or the gusset and it will feel super comfortable on taller women.
The tankini flatters both petite and plus size figures and comes in an extra length for long torsos.
The tankini swimsuit also gives fantastic coverage with all the benefits of a bikini set.
Tankinis offer great support and comfort.
Tankinis offer more comfort and security than a standard bikini.
