The Moontide Tankini

5 Reasons why you should try a Tankini top!

A tankini swimsuit is a tank top and a bikini bottom set that covers your modesty like a swimsuit but offers the convenience of a bikini. It really combines the best bits of both! 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, the tankini is stylish, comfortable, functional, flattering and hugely versatile.

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. The tankini flatters both petite and plus size figures and comes in an extra length for a long torso. 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.  At Moontide our technical weave of 80% Polyamide, 20% Elastane gives that extra strength, luxury, and softness to our material. Underwired options offer the perfect supportive fit for larger busts. More material on the larger cup sizes provide that added security. The Moontide tie-front tankini is the perfect cup-sized choice with underbust cradle and wider straps.  Or why not try the wrap-front tankini with power mesh bra shelf? Our C/D, DD/E and F/G cups are specifically designed for maximum support and comfort.

The Tankini is stylish and versatile.

Be individual and create your own perfect Tankini set look by mixing and matching pants and tops. Get the top and bottom design that you want without having to compromise. The combinations are endless! You can team your halter trim tankini with a classic brief or high waist gathered pants for that glamorous film star look or be flirty and fun with some cheeky tie-side bottoms or v-pants. In short, The choice is yours.

A Tankini will cover bulges and new mummy tummy.

If you’ve got a new mummy tummy or a few extra bulges that you don’t want to show off, then the Tankini is the best and most flattering swimwear choice for you. It skims the tummy area and is so much more forgiving than a one-piece.  Colour blocking on the fabric is specifically designed to draw your eye to all the right places. A ruched front panel like our best-selling classic Twist tankini slims and shapes giving you that body confidence.

Functional for any activity.

A women’s tankini is multifunctional – it is not just for swimming! You can sunbathe by tucking your tankini top up. Choose a bandeau style to avoid having strap lines. It is also much easier than wrestling with a swimsuit when you need to nip to the bathroom!

Swap the tankini bottoms for some lycra shorts for sporty activities at the beach or gym. In a tankini top with shorts you really are ready for anything. You can run, swim, play volleyball, workout and everything will stay exactly where you need it to! Add some cotton shorts or jeans and you are ready for hiking or backpacking. No need to carry extra tops on your adventures! A few well fitted tankinis are all you need for every occasion. Dress your tankini top up by teaming it with smart trousers, a sarong or skirt and you are ready for shopping, a meal at a restaurant or an evening out.
