8 Cute Tankinis for Girls

lands-end-tankini.jpgWhen it comes to bathing suits for girls, I'm all about the two-piece; diapering and bathroom visits are easier (and less, er, chilly). And for my girls, I favor tankinis over bikinis, probably due a bit to modesty, practically because it means less skin exposed to potential sunburn, and also because I have embarrassing memories of coming out of an ocean wave as a child with my bikini top floating around my neck. Good news is, there's no shortage of cute tankinis on the market. Since I was just shopping for tankinis for Laurel and Vi this past weekend, I thought I'd share 8 cute picks with you:
1. This three-piece tankini set is cute, colorful, and a bargain. (Target, $18.99)

2. Your kids can jump on the chevron bandwagon with this adorable chevron ruffle tankini. (Gap, $22.95)

3. I love this modern fish print top and bottom. (Boden, $18 top + $14 bottom)

4. Get more bang for your swimsuit buck with this reversible top and bottom; hearts on one side, polka dots on the reverse. (Hanna Andersson, currently on sale for $16 each)


5. Ride the asymmetrical wave with this hula splash top and bottom. (Lands' End, $24 top, $17 bottom)

6. Laurel adores this blue ruffles and tiers suit; I bought it in blue and also in yellow. (Old Navy, $16)

7. I wear stripes pretty much every day so I can't help but love this purple-tone top and bottom. (Lands' End, $24 top, $17 bottom)

8. Black and white tankini = something very close to what I'd find in my own closet! (Target, $14.99)
