What is "Tankini" - Definition & Explanation

A two piece bathing suit with the upper portion resembling a tank top.
A tankini is a type of two-piece swimsuit. The tankini is disguished from the classic bikini by the difference in tops. The tankini top extends downward to somewhere between just above the navel and the top of the hips. This type of swimwear provides the modesty of a one piece suit with the convenience of a two piece suit, e.g. the entire suit need not be removed in order to go to the bathroom. Tankinis come in a variety of styles colors and shapes.
