The wonderful thing about the tankini is that it is suitable for all sizes and ages. No matter whether you are buying for an adolescent teenager, who is just starting to get used to her developing shape, or a lady in her 60s or 70s who perhaps has certain areas she prefers to keep covered. The Simply Beach range of tankinis are suitable for both, plus everyone in between, no matter what your shape.
They are glamorous, sexy and and many of them have a retro look, taking you back to the days of the silver screen, when actresses like Ava Gardner and Greta Garbo were photographed wearing what could best be described as the forerunner to the tankini. No matter what your size, there is a tankini just right for you. If you need extra lift, they come with removable booster pads and boning for extra support. Maybe you feel more comfortable with straps - then the halter neck is ideal with its detachable straps, for that perfect suntan.
Some brands offer flared tankinis which can be worn with one of their bandeau swim bras, ideal for for the larger lady. The combination will give all the support you need to look curvaceous and elegant and it covers problem areas such as the tummy and hips. Remember also that the larger figure is complimented by patterned fabrics and vertical stripes are also excellent, giving a slimming effect.
Necklines can be plunging, bandeau or higher, choose which one you will feel most comfortable wearing, because they are all incredibly flattering. Take a look at the twist bandeau's - they are gorgeous. Straps can be halter-necked or classic shoulder for those of you that prefer the extra security.
There is a great choice of colours, patterns and styles to choose from and the Simply Beach collection of tankinis are not just for the beach - they look equally wonderful as evening wear also.
