What is a Tankini Swimwear Set?

Tankini swimwear has come a long way since its entry to the market years ago. Once, just an afterthought, womens tankini swimsuit sets are now key looks in any seasonal swim collection. And shopping for tankini sets has never been easier. 

Whether you love the ease of a tankini or need different sizing for your top and bottom, the latest tankini styles have something to suit every shape and size while looking fashionable and stylish. You can match any tankini top with your preferred swim pant for a customised look and fit that is perfect for you and your needs. 

At Capriosca Swimwear we ensure our seasonal collections include tankini tops in new prints, colours, and designs, with bikini bottoms to match.

Create Your Ideal Tankini Set

Sporty ladies can create women's tankini swimsuits with shorts by matching a top with a practical boyleg pant. Our chlorine resistant collection is the ideal place to look for stylish and functional swimwear separates made from durable, pool friendly fabric.

Those who prefer a more feminine look offering booty and hip coverage can pair a tankini with a swim skirt for a fun and flirty look. Don’t be afraid to play with different shapes and proportions when it comes to creating your own tankini set. Choose what works for you.

The options are truly endless when it comes to creating a tankini set that looks, fits and feels the way you want it to. Whether you want a chic strapless style or prefer a little more frill action with a ruffle tankini set, we have something that's right for you at Capriosca Swimwear.

Tankini vs Bikini 

What is the difference between a tankini and a bikini? Tankini bathers offer more coverage than a bikini while still providing the ease and practicality of a two piece swimsuit. You can still wear your favourite swim bottoms with your longer line top.

A tankini top works for women who feel self conscious about their mid section or simply prefer a more modest swim set. If you feel like you’re showing too much in a bikini top and pants, it might be time to try a tankini set.

Tankinis work for older ladies who no longer feel comfortable or confident wearing a bikini top and pants. You still get the benefits of a bikini set without showing as much skin. 

Is a One Piece or Tankini More Flattering?

Which looks better, a one piece or a tankini? It all depends on your body shape. If you are a different size top and bottom, a tankini set will fit your body perfectly, as opposed to a one piece. The right tankini style can balance your body, offering fit and support where you need it most. Correct fitting swimwear always looks best, so finding a style that works with your proportions will be the most flattering.  

Flattering Tankini Tops

Loose tankini swimwear such as a swing top or ruffle top are great for ladies wanting to disguise a fuller tummy. Wear these styles with a high waist pant for the ultimate in support, shaping and coverage for a larger belly.

These styles are also ideal flattering tankinis for mums to be. With room to grow, these looser fitting styles work for all stages of pregnancy and motherhood. 

A retro inspired tankini is another flattering style for all body types. Vintage styling with lots of ruching and bust support work well to show off curves in the most flattering way.

How Should a Tankini Top Fit?

How should a tankini top fit? Well. Bust fit and support is the most important aspect, followed by body width and length. A firmer fitting tankini top won't ride up or float away when you're in the water. 

Fit a maternity tankini top

A well fitting maternity tankini will have adequate length as well as width for your growing belly. A shelf bra is also a feature to look for as it provides comfortable support while accommodating your bust as it grows. All our tankini tops feature adjustable straps to further customise your fit and preferred level of support. 

Tankini tops for longer torsos

Tankini separates are great for women with longer torsos. The best tankini for a long torso is the 3 tier ruffle tankini as it falls longer at the front than any of our other tops. Other great long tankini swimsuits on offer are our ruched underwire tops in a range of plain colours and prints.
