The Tankini: Practical But Beautiful Swimwear For Every Woman

January 2, 2011 by  
Filed under About Bikini

This newer design of swimwear has hit the swimwear fashion scene with a storm. It has recently been seen giving the classical bikini a run for its money. The Tankini has gained popularity for its modest but fashionable look, and whilst not being as provocative as the bikini or as provoking as your lingerie. They do provide a great alternative for those who are overly aware of their midsection or tummy size. And with enough consideration taken whilst selecting, could result in your tummy looking smaller than you ever thought possible.
The classical Tankini is a longer or tank style top combined with a bikini bottom. From a practical point of view it has all the benefits of the bikini combined with the coverage of a one piece. (Ever tried going to the bathroom in a wet one piece, you’ll know what I’m talking about)
The Tankini is regularly combined with a boy short, but when combined with a skirted bikini, they are referred to as a skirting. These allow for endless variations and combinations, both matched and mismatched to help you gain the maximum effect when dressing for the beach this summer.
There are various designs of the Tankini are available, with the length of tops varying from just above the naval to down below the hip line. With many funny and flirty styles from swim and beachwear brands like Speedo, Billabong and Banana Moon you will be spoilt for choice.
All of these brands featuring a variety of cuts and styles, to draw attention toward your good bits and away from those not so nice areas allowing you to show just enough skin to keep the guys enthralled. Whilst remaining confident and comfortable with exposing your body this summer.
Tankini’s are made from a combination of nylon, spandex and Lycra blends, that is chlorine and fade resistant. These materials are capable of maintaining their bright colors throughout the season. With styles, colors, shades and tones to suit any skin tone or color.
When selecting your Tankini it is important to remember that your ultimate goal should be creating a balanced silhouette. This is done using color and pattern. When applied correctly you will find that perfect swimsuit for your body.
Here are some quick tips
* Big shoulders or heavy bust, try the halter neck tank tops, those offer plenty of support whilst creating the illusion of curves
* No waist line, go for the shorter tank top styles with ties or details at the side this will help create the illusion of a waistline
* Taller ladies will benefit by combining the boy short with a mid length Tankini top, this will break up the length, creating a more balanced look.
* For shorter bodies pick a full-length top and a low rise bottom, a small or fine pattern on the top will help with creating the illusion of a longer body.
* Bigger waistlines should go for bolder patterns on the top and even combine it with a skirted bottom
No matter what your taste or style, there is a Tankini out there just for you this summer.
