I bought my first pair last month and it's absolutely gorgeous on me. I really like these tankinis that are out now. I can't wait to swim in it next month. It flatters my figure better than a bikini (though I still wear a bikini for tanning purposes in my backyard).

What I love about the tankini top is that you can use it like a regular halter top or tank top (with a pair of jeans, shorts, and skirts). I love it.

Has anybody else have worn one yet? Do you like them??

Hi, I've worn a tankini for many years so not sure what you mean but I do love them.
I have a really sexy one by "Vitamin A", and then sporty one for other occasions, cute "CK" one for any occasion, etc.
The only problem I find is that often a small is too big, I'm a XS bottom and S top and not everyone gives you the option to mix and match...but my Vitamin A I bought the top and bottom separately and just love

I, too, have worn tankinis for many years. I just don't have enough confidence in my body to wear a bikini..

I love tankinis because One piece suits are always too short in the torso so they ride up or the Ta Ta's fall out.
Lots of catalogs sell tankini pieces seperate. Lands End, Venus, Spiegel for example.

No I really dont care too much for them, Im one of those 'string bikini' girls. Of course I didnt like those capri style jeans when they first came out either and now I wear 'em.

I bought my first one about 5 years ago. I love the fact that I can wear a real bra with it.

I, too, used to wear string bikinis. But it's like you have to stay in a very strict diet to wear them throughout the summer. That's the only reason why I quit wearing them.

I love the ones from Venus swimwear and South Beach swimwear. So cute and I love the colors they use too. The one I have now is Sand 'N' Sun swimwear brand. Very pretty. Mine is a coral green and blue-green color. I'm gettin another one next week and I'm getting one that is pink, yellow, blue, and green (my favorite colors). Very nice.

And, yes, I do agree with you about one-pieces. I never did like them and they feel too tight after a while too. And they do ride up also. Ugggh!!!! So, that's why I've always worn two-piece type swimsuits. Much more comfort.
