    I want to vote for both since it depends on what I'm doing.

    If I'm going to be all day in a suit - snorkeling, sailing, lounging, whatever...I wear a two piece.

    For my swim workouts - one piece.

    One piece for workouts; tankini for leisure.

    I have weird proportions with big boobies...I have yet to find a 1 piece that fits on top and bottom and offers good support. Separates are the best option, especially if there are different style options in coordinating colors/patterns and tops in bra cup sizes with adequate support for doing more than just lying on the beach.

    I'm with a couple of the others. It really depends on what I'm doing. If it's in public most likely to be a one piece or the tankini, but if it's for around the pool at home then it's a two piece (by hubbies request) for this fat girl. LOL!




    I probably own more bikinis than any fat girl is suppose too. LOL!!!

    I'd love a tankini if they made the bottoms a little higher and the tops a LOT longer. Long body, and they never meet....

    One piece---something that stays in place and is supportive. TYR Diamondback or Speedo Pro Back are my favorite styles.

    I love one piece suits. Even when I was younger, I never felt comfortable in bikinis. I used to wear the kind with lots of cut-outs, etc; now I just wear lots of halter style one piece suits, usually with high cut legs and different types of backs.
    I like the idea of boy shorts for swimming, but boy shorts just do not fit me. They ride up, no matter what size I get. I gave up. I also would love to wear a tankini, but I need shorter tops. With the ones I have worn, the top is so long on me that it hits me at the lower hip, which is very unflattering. We need petite sized tankini tops!

    Definitely one-piece, and I am most comfortable in racing suits (this preference may come from the years on swim team, plus a lot of other suits have extraneous ruffles etc. or aren't cut in a way that they stay in place). Who wants to have to worry about a "wardrobe malfunction" if she decides to jump or dive into the pool/lake, bodysurf at the beach, etc.? I've never liked bikinis anyway, just don't feel comfortable showing that much skin.

    I'm with the majority here - one piece for actual swimming, 2 piece for leisure activities.

    I personally like board shorts with a bikini top (or tank top - depending on how vigorous the activity), cause I'm not about to wax.....
