What do you call a swimsuit that’s not really onesie and not a bikini either? Our favorite style TANKINI SWIMSUITS of course. We used to don them when our mums still prohibited us from hopping into a bikini but we were obviously too cool for a traditional onesie. Cute tankinis were and continue to be the saving charm of our youth, so it’s time we pay homage to them.
Solid or patterned, the holy grail of 2018 fashion swimwears is full of this alluring vintage-inspired style, with great variations like belts, ruffles and outstanding high-rise bottoms ruling the market, so you feel all magical and entrancing from within. Whether you’re all for cheeky briefs, a flattering plus size tankini, or the figure-flattering high-rise bottoms, including an appealing, uber-chic tankini is really a wardrobe staple for rocking your summer 2018 like never before.
CUTE TANKINIS FOR YOUR BODY
With the versatility of a bikini and support of a onesie, read on some helpful tips on how to choose the best tankini top with shortini or skirtini/brief fit to flatter your figure:
CHOOSE THE RIGHT HUE
The right shade of your tankini bathing suit immediately draws more attention to you and enhances your best features for you to glow inside out. Play to your natural strengths and opt for pinks, oranges, golds, maroons and reds if you have a warmer undertone (olive, golden tan skin). For women with fairer complexions and cool undertones, purples, greens, turquoises and blues are your bet.
SOLIDS AND PATTERNS
Knowing your body is important as the right piece can really highlight the bits you want to showcase while concealing areas that you do not wish to reveal. Patterns usually draw more attention towards you while solids blend in more effortlessly and aren’t that noticeable generally.
Got amazing legs that you wish to showcase while taking the attention away from the waist? Go for a tankini swimwear with a solid, dark top and a lower with lively prints with a high-cut thigh to standout.
Got nice arms that you wish to accentuate while taking the attention away from your behind/legs? Go for a solid dark bottom and a vava-voom printed top in vibrant shades to dazzle.
GREAT FIT AND SUPPORT
Remember girls, the right fit of your swimwear really brings out the best in you. Fit is really the key, depending on what you wish to highlight.
- Halter, sweetheart and V-neckline style: Enhances and accentuate the bust line while also giving a super-feminine and sexy feel.
- Shorts: Give a fuller coverage- fit for an active water sports day
- Skirts: Give more coverage in an appealing, feminine manner
- Tanks: Elongates the chest area, the neck while enhancing the arms
- Front cut-outs- Gives a unique touch while enhancing smaller busts
- Bandeaus: Gives more coverage for bigger busts while also preventing harsh tan lines.
- For something that offers great coverage and support at the same time, go for a top with higher necklines or a scoop neck that give you great comfort and usually come with soft-molded bra cups so you dive in with confidence. Underwired plus size tankini tops are another great option that you showcase some cleavage while also giving amazing support.
- Brief bottoms: These are the best for showcasing leaner and longer legs. Offering less coverage than skirts and shorts, these look incredibly flattering. Opt for a stretchy high-rise if you wish to conceal your tummy.
