What Tankinis to Take On Your Next Vacation

What Tankinis to Take On Your Next Vacation

Don't forget to throw a few tankini swimsuits in your suitcase when packing for vacation. Taking more than one suit allows you to rotate, minimizing wear and tear. You can also pair different tops and bottoms together for an exciting new look every day.

A tankini top with a v-neckline and spaghetti straps will make you feel glam in the sand. A wide band under the bosom supports like a bra, while the alluring cut reveals a little more skin. The x-back is a real eye-catcher, too.

Do you need extra help on top? Our tankini swimsuits with hidden underwires keep everything in place, whether you're splashing in the ocean or walking down to the hotel pool. Removable soft cups provide a little shaping, emphasizing your natural curves.

Don't forget to bring a roomy bag for all of your vacation essentials. A canvas tote is incredibly durable and strong, so you won't have to worry about split seams or straining handles. With a water-resistant base and trim, your possessions stay safe even if you accidentally set your tote by a puddle. Add a monogram to make off-season storage of your favorite floaties even easier to find. "Beach Day" monogrammed between the straps may just bring back a few happy memories in the middle of winter.

Pack some cozy beach towels, too. Look for oversized ones that can be draped over a lounge chair, but make sure they're thick enough to provide a little padding if you're relaxing on a sandy beach. There's nothing like wrapping yourself in a big, fluffy towel after taking a dip, either. Lands' End beach towels offer UPF 50 sun protection, which is nice when you're drying off and warming up after a long swim.

If you want to stay safe in the sun, get a high neckline tankini that covers your chest, shoulders and back. The SPF 50 material blocks 98% of damaging rays, keeping your skin healthy and youthful. Dark colors provide the most protection though, so choose something in black or navy if you want to be extra cautious.

You'll also need to bring a few different bottoms. For a pretty and playful look, take a couple of swim skirts; try one with a sewn-in panty and you'll be good to go. A pair of swim shorts are great for lounging, and bikini briefs never go out of style, either.

A cover-up will come in handy, too. A billowing caftan or fitted T-shirt dress always looks sophisticated, especially with a pair of oversized shades and a pendant necklace. When it's chilly, grab a jersey cover-up, pull on the hood and warm your hands in the pockets.

Looking to hide your tummy? You'll need a tankini with tummy control only you will know is there to smooth your midsection. Alternately, you can wear a ruffle or blouson top that conceals your stomach behind draping fabric. No restriction necessary.

There are also many options for women who need mastectomy swimwear. A tankini with adjustable straps lets you create the perfect fit with breast forms, and there are even prosthesis pockets to keep them secure. If you want to conceal scars, try something with smaller openings.
