Bikinis are a swimwear choice for anyone, regardless of height. And, the good news is bikini stores can be found both online and offline, and pretty much around every corner. Two-piece bathing suits are especially great for tall women who don't mind showing some skin because you aren't limited to strictly long torso sizes. Simply buy swim tops and swim bottoms that fit, and off you go to catch some rays.
Whether you want to mix and match bikinis or buy a two-piece swimsuit set, the styles to choose from are seemingly endless. Your options for bikini tops include triangle, halter, demi-top, bandeau, and strapless with underwire, padded, or unlined cups. Your options for bikini bottoms include string, scoop, thong, hipster, boyshorts, and even swim skirts. All of these come in colors and patterns galore and some are reversible, giving you even more for your money.
