No matter what your body type is, there is a bathing suit on the market that will compliment your figure. And let’s be honest, when it comes down to it, who doesn’t like a little variety?  Tankinis are a great choice in terms of variety. They have changed quite a bit over the years as well. The most popular swimwear for summers nowadays is a tankini. This is a bathing suit that has an under wire bra which makes it one of the most popular types of bathing suits this season.

There are many different styles and types of tankinis on the market and, of course, all work well based upon your body type. In general tankinis are cute, stylish and fun. Some are more covering than others and, of course, every body is beautiful! You will find that there are enough different styles that it’s easy to find a tankini that works for you.

For instance, if you have a curvier figure you’ll want to look for a tankini that has built-in shelf which will help to highlight your curves. This will look much better than a bathing suit that adds to your curves. You don’t want to take the attention away from your curves. Also, a built-in shelf makes it easier for you to adjust the swimsuit after you get in the water.

Tankinis used to be very basic and you were almost guaranteed to get one that was indeed built in. Nowadays, the choices are endless. There are so many different colors, patterns and of course styles. Some have ruffles at the bottom; some have the built in bustier, some simply have a bandeau top with no straps and others do both.

Of course, for year’s we have seen the rise and fall in popularity of certain styles.  This can be seen within different swimwear fashions such as the “rotu” or a tankini skirt. The rise of this style can be seen in the late 1990’s to early 2000’s. Now, as far as I’m concerned, this is one of the most amazing developments in swimwear since the introduction of the one-piece bathing suit.

Today, you are much more likely to come across a classic cut tankini than you were ten years ago when you were heading out to do some shopping. This is not only because the tankini has appeared in all the favorite swimwear designers but because these designers are practically the best in the business when it comes to classic bathing suit styling. The only real challenge you will run into when you are shopping is realizing which of the classic cuts actually fits best with your body type.

The challenge really lies in trying to determine what classic cut tankini will look best on you. Usually this sort of shopping is best done before you go to the store or hit the beach so you can see how it looks on you. Chances are that if you are a larger size, you will definitely need to go up at least a size from a tankini that is your size. Before you try one on, try it on in the dressing room and see how it feels. Of course it will be different when you actually see it on. This is when you should get a friend’s opinion. But once you find something that you and your friends totally love, go ahead and make that purchase. This swimwear will definitely help to turn heads whenever you wear it, and will be something that you definitely will not regret buying!
