Tankini: What is it and 5 reasons you NEED one


To start off, what is a tankini?


A tankini is a two-piece bathing suit that gives the illusion of a one piece. There are many different types of swimwear, but the tankini is the most unique of all.


The tankini top is figure smoothing and helps cover your stomach. The best ones are made with compression fabric to flatten and smooth the belly. You can get them as halterneck, with straps, strapless, short sleeves, and long sleeves.

The bottoms are usually bikini bottoms, swim shorts, or even swim skirts.


This type of swimwear is the perfect option for women with bigger busts or a belly pooch because it's easy to customize the fit.

4. Long Torso

This is a great option for women with a long torso because it usually has enough fabric to span the length of your torso, unlike some one-piece swimsuits. Regular one-piece swimsuits feel tight in length for women with long torsos. A tankini is a great choice because it looks like a one-piece and fits the torso perfectly.


For those that prefer to cover up a long torso, a tankini helps to streamline your body and not place as much emphasis on your midsection, as a bikini would.
