Long torso tankini swimwear is a good choice for tall women who want some added coverage for their body, but like the comfort and freedom of a two-piece bathing suit. Tankinis are fashionable and can be found in many different styles, including halter, bandeau, v-neck, scoopneck, and strapless. The stores in this directory carry extra long tankini tops in the sizes you need. Pair one of these fun tops with your favorite type of swim bottom and you've got the perfect swimsuit for ladies who need just a little something extra.
Although there is a decent list of stores carrying tall tankinis, as you will see in the directory below, the one that stands out the most in my mind is Athleta. Try looking there first for some great options.
Athleta offers a nice variety of long torso tops in a bunch of different styles, colors, and patterns. I own a couple of their swimsuits and the length of the tops covers my whole stomach. Perfection! They, also, have an awesome return policy...send anything back for free. That was enough to entice me to try!
Long Tall Sally also offers a small collection of tankini sets in their swimwear line. Be sure to check them out as well.
Here are some of my favorite tankini styles from this year's collection...
