If you’re like me, you dread going to the pool. But if you have kids, they are going to want to swim when it gets hot. In comes the tankini: the answer to a mom’s poolside clothing dilemma. It covers up what needs to not be seen, but is much more comfortable, stylish and convenient than a one-piece. And thankfully, there are many cute tankini options out there that won’t break the bank. Here are some of my favorites this season:
Seaside Seersucker suit by J Crew. Top $50, bottoms $44.
The Sausalito tankini from Downeast Basics. Tankini $29.99 and cover up skirt (in many colors) $24.99.
and also from Downeast Basic, the Zuma suit:
Brooklyn Tankini by Lime Ricki. Top $35 and bottoms $30.
This is the cover up I am lusting after:
