What is the verdict on tankinis?

I've never had one before. My tummy area is a bit wobbly so maybe I should wear one.

Does the tankini top roll up even when it's not supposed to?

great for tall people with big boobs

I like them, less hot than swimsuits in the sun.

where can I get a nice plain one for a short fat person?

@shoe - where do you get yours from? I do consider bikinis every now and again, but then get fed up trying to find one that isn't padded/garish/patterned/hideously expensive...

I like tankinis - mine have been from Lands End and the tops are a decent length and they do a good range of bottoms so you can have shorts or high waist and ensure coverage.

I'm tall, and so a tankini is much more comfortable

I like them. Swimsuits don't fit me, even "long" ones, even long ones from long shops. They just don't make swimsuits for my epic proportions. hmm

I'd rather have a swimsuit but there aren't any! I would never wear a bikini in a million years. Makes me feel like I'm being made to do PE in my undies. So: tankini it is!
