Tankinis

Questions and answers about tankinis, our favorite swim separates.

If you’re tired of wearing womens one-piece bathing suits, try a tankini swimsuit. They keep you covered, but offer the freedom to choose different sizes on top and bottom. You can also mix and match them to create new looks, and they’re flattering on women of all shapes and sizes.

Will a tankini hide my tummy?

A tankini top worn with a regular bikini bottom might reveal your tummy. Try pairing your favorite tankini swimsuit top with a high-waisted bottom for a faux-one piece look. Choose a relaxed blouson style and hide your midsection behind flowing fabric. Lands’ End also makes tankinis from special material that smooths and shapes your figure, and some even have secret panels to add tummy control.

Can I wear a tankini after a mastectomy?

Lands’ End offers mastectomy tankini swimsuits designed especially for women who’ve undergone surgery. Higher necklines and small arm openings cover scars, while the UPF 50 material protects your skin. Some styles also have soft cup bras with pockets for breast forms.

Do tankinis flatter broad shoulders?

You can definitely carry off a tankini if you have strong, broad shoulders. Look for a tankini top with a v-neckline that draws the eye downward while elongating your body. Thicker straps also minimize the appearance of your shoulders and feel extra comfortable.

What bottoms should I wear with a tankini top?

Any kind of swim bottoms go well with a tankini top, so choose whatever you like best. Try a classic pair of bikini briefs, or check out swim skirts with pleats or adjustable side-ties. A roomy pair of swim shorts works well, too.

Can I carry off a tankini if I’m short?

There’s no height requirement for rocking a tankini. Choose tankini swimsuit tops and bottoms in a single, solid color to make yourself appear taller. High-cut bikini briefs reveal more skin, making your legs seem longer, too.

Will a tankini support my bust?

There are some amazing tankini styles for women with a full chest. Pick one with a built-in underwire bra for serious support, or go for a push-up style if you feel daring. You can also opt for a soft cup bra that subtly lifts and shapes to compliment your natural curves.

Will a tankini compliment a long torso?

Tankinis are a good choice if you wear long torso swimsuits. Try a loose, ruffle-style top that billows away from your body. By obscuring the point where your natural waist begins, it evens out your proportions. If you’re worried about tummy coverage, opt for a high-waisted bottom. Lands’ End also offers long torso tankini tops in long torso sizes across a variety of styles so you won’t have to compromise.

Do tankinis look good on pear-shape figures?

Women with full hips and a pear-shaped body look lovely in the right tankini. Try a swim skirt on bottom and a top with details that draw the eye upward and away from your middle. Avoid wearing bottoms with side ties or horizontal stripes, which can make you appear wider and choose something with a full cut that covers your bum.
