Plus Size Tankini

A well chosen plus size tankini is ideal for hiding your tummy and giving your bust the extra support to be comfortable when engaging in beach or pool activities.

A tankini combines the best features of both the one piece bathing suit and the standard plus size bikini in a new and exciting type of swimwear that is not only sexy and flattering, but also provides coverage of your "problem areas". Not to mention how practical it is when you need to go to the bathroom without having to remove your top and how much more you are protected against sunburn compared to wearing a normal bikini.

A tankini is a perfect swimsuit when doing beach or pool activities: it gives great support for the bust without having to fear for some embarrassing exposure do to whichever movement you could be making.

Which tankini suits you best?

Tankini tops and bottoms can be mixed and matched to suit your personal taste and body type. Choose bottoms that camouflage or enhance your hips, thighs or buts. There are 4 distinct combinations:

  • Halter Top Tankini
    the halter top tankini is generally a flattering choice for any woman and accentuates the bust, shoulders and collarbone
  • Apron Tankini
    the apron tankini keeps your back uncovered whilst the front midsection is covered with kind of drapes, made in a design that flatters your body or made in sheer. It's a comfortable yet seductive style for women that don't feel that they have to hide anything.
  • Underwire Tankini
    the underwire tankini
    is for women with a bigger bust who want extra support for the bust whilst covering the mid section. They could look like a one piece if the top and the bottom match.
  • Buyshort Tankini
    the boyshort tankini has shorts to cover your hips, thighs and buttocks and a tank top that is short enough to cover up most of your belly but showing still a little bit of flesh so everybody can see you are not wearing a one piece. They are the preferred swimwear of recent mothers and anybody who is a bit shy about their bottom.

It is no secret that black or dark colors make you look thinner. Your second best choice is keeping the colors and the design to a minimum.

When comfort is on your list of must haves, go for spandex or spandex and cotton combinations. When you want a long lasting bathing suit, then go for nylon.

Although choices and combinations are unlimited, most retail shops will only sell a limited amount of plus size patterns, designs and colors. Online shopping for a plus size tankini will ensure that any big beautiful woman will find her right type of swimwear.

Looking good is a fundamental right to be exercised by all, plus size or other. Choice shouldn't be an obstacle and a plus size tankini could be your answer since the upper and the lower part can bought separately to customize your bathing suit to your specific top and bottom size, body shape and taste.
