We know, we know: Between all the post-work happy hours and summer BBQs, it’s not exactly high time to slip into a stomach-baring bikini. But, even if you’re headed to the beach for the long holiday weekend, you don’t have to stay completely covered up in a one-piece. Enter: the tankini.
The midriff-concealing bathing suit may have seen some regular rotation when you were a kid, but because they offer twice the coverage without sacrificing an ounce of sex appeal, the tankini deserves a second look. From a peplum style that’ll really show off your shape to a so-flattering ruched option, click through for our favorite tankini swimsuits you’ll love just as much as your beloved two-piece.
