In 2022, you might want to try something a bit different when you are on your beach trip. On when you go on vacation.
Bikinis are great. But if you have a habit of sunbathing for too long, they can leave you with sunburn. All in ones are an option too. Though some women find them a bit plain.

There is something of a hybrid that has been booming in popularity in the last 5 years; the tankini. It is, in essence, bikini bottoms of your choice, with a tank top. Made from a variety of materials and in a multitude of colors, you will always find a tankini that suits you.
Check out these 5 reasons why you should add a tankini to your swimwear wardrobe in 2022.
Are you one of the thousands of women who aren’t comfortable wearing a bikini? Do you want something with a bit more coverage? This is where a tankini comes in!
Tankini swimsuits from Lands End provide coverage to the midsection. They don’t show as much skin as a bikini. But they can be fit enough to show off your curves and figure.
So, if you need something that is not as full-on as a one-piece suit, a tankini may be for you! They are also a great way to protect your midsection against sunburn.
Tankinis are one of the most comfortable types of swimwear you can have.
They are simply tank tops designed from a breathable, waterproof fabric. As such, they come in a range of sizes and shapes for those who have a fuller figure. Or those who are slimmer.
If you have a larger bust, you can get underwired tankinis. This will ensure you have all the support you need when you are at the beach. If you are pregnant, you can get tankinis with built-in bump support. Great!
Mix and Match?
As mentioned before, some women find all in one swimsuit quite plain.
Luckily, if you are hoping to make an impact with your summer look, the tankini can be exactly what you need. Like bikinis, they can be mixed and matched. If you have a larger bust, you can opt for a brighter tankini top with darker bottoms. Or, if you have smaller hips, you can have a plain tankini top with a frilly pair of bikini bottoms.
They can go with any beach accessory, from sunhats to sarongs. So, it is completely up to you how you choose to wear them!
New mom? No problem!
If you have recently had a baby, you may feel concerned about the dreaded bikini season. But you still want to look good when you are at the beach. And you deserve to!
As before, tankinis can come with built-in bump support. Which can also double up as postnatal bump support. You can get tummy-control options too. Alongside alternatives that can be gentle on your bust if you are nursing. You can even get tankinis that open at the front. Allowing for easier nursing for you and your baby.
Also, they can be as bright and bold as you want them to be without causing you to feel uncomfortable when you are at the beach with your family.
They look great!
Is the tankini a fashion piece while also being functional? Yes!
If you have young kids, you may spend a bit of time running around after them. So you will want something simple and fitting. But you will want that added security, should you wish to go into the sea. The kind of security that rarely comes with a bikini top!
Tankinis can also be dressed up or dressed down. You can match tankinis with your sunhat, sunglasses, and a sarong if you wish to. Or you can wear them plain. Either way, they will look great! While providing support and protecting you from the sun.
Not only that, but tankinis look great on everyone. Unlike bikinis which can be off-putting, tankinis can support fuller figures too. They look great on teenagers, senior beach dwellers, and those who just want to hang out and catch some rays.
Remember that when it comes to dressing at the beach, you will want something comfortable. That also shows off your personality. Tankinis can do both with ease, comfort, and chic. While also allowing you to save on money. They are available online and in-store, so you can assess which type you may want to add to your wardrobe for the upcoming summer season.
