As the temperature is hotting up, you may be looking towards a swimwear purchase. Less restrictive than a swimsuit but more covered up than a bikini, a tankini could be the one for you.

What is a tankini?
Tankinis were made popular in the 90s and have been a hit ever since. The top is described as a tank top (hence the name!), and it'll come with a matching bikini brief to go with.
The trends have evolved now, and you have so many options; strapless styles, halternecks, with shorts and even tummy control. There is also a large selection for fuller busted ladies.
