Tankini Tops: Choosing the Right One for You

If you’re looking for a new swim style for your next trip, consider reaching for a women’s tankini bathing suit. Modest yet stylish and inspired by tank tops, tankini tops are the perfect choice whether you're going to the coast to catch some sun or just want to relax by the pool with your favorite beverage

While they might not be as popular as a classic bikini or one-pieces, these two-piece swimsuits are actually an amazing choice for ladies who are gravitating toward both of these beloved styles. With this top style, you’ll get extra coverage and accessibility — more than a bikini top – while keeping the ability to mix and match their tops and bottoms. 

Tankini bathing suits are especially great for women who:

  • Have a longer torso and larger bra size

  • Want a swim top with a high neck, square neck, or scoop neck
  • Are different sizes on the top and on the bottom
  • Like mixing and matching their swimwear for a color block look
  • Want to grow their swimwear collection, but are on a tight budget
  • Love to spend time at a beach but are not comfortable wearing a two-piece bikini
  • Spend equal time in and out of the water
  • Like to cover up a little in the sun and want a swimsuit with UPF
