    Lately I've been having the hardest time finding a one-piece that will work for workouts -- I'm short waisted so a lot of suits are too long for me.

    I'm also a tankini fan. It's nice when you can mix/match separates for fit & color, too!

    Bikini's... I probably haven't worn a one piece since I was a baby. My favorite are the Brazilian cut ones from Victoria's Secret. I have this one, but in a different print, and also with the bandeau top: http://www2.victoriassecret.com/comm...AZZZ&rfnbr=148

    It looks like they have long tankini tops, you may want to check out. I like VS because you can mix and match all the pieces to find exactly what fits you the best.

    My swim suit is a tankini. I bought coordinating board shorts so I could be lazy. If I were actually swimming to work out, I'd want a one-piece.
    At least I don't leave slime trails.

    I prefer tankinis - my proportions are such that it is virtually impossible to find a 1-piece that will fit and I won't wear a bikini.

    2 piece for me, bikinis. Like others, i have different proportions and have a difficult time with finding a one piece the fits. My a$$ and thighs are my worse parts, so NO suit is going to conceal that - i like my abs so why not show them off?
    Nike and TYR make some nice, supportive, and not too revealing ones that work well for both workouts and lounging.

    NbyNW---Check Dolfin suits. They are cut for folks who are shorter-waisted. The nice thing about Dolfin is that the suits are pretty good quality and not expensive.

    I would like that mythical swim suit that would make me feel ok and look basically socially acceptable!

    like most i like a one piece for actual swimming and that's all i own. i like tankinis in theory but attractive comfortable swim suits cost so much and i don't swim that often so i just own the one.

    Two piece because one pieces get wedgied too easily, and I like air and water on as much skin as possible. Of course, that also means more sun exposure but I just don't like wet bathingsuit on my stomach. Ick!
    I can do five more miles.

    I love bikinis, I wish I had a body that did them justice.

    Tankinis do not describe the kind of two piece suit I wear. I do not wear bottoms that look like panties. I wear bottoms that have the panties with a skirt attached. I don't know what you would call them, but to me a tankini covers up the midsection more than a bikini, but not the bottom.

    I don't wear one-pieces for anything because I don't like to undress to pee.

    It sounds like a skirted bikini.

    I tried to link to one on this page, but the whole page comes up. But you see what I mean. They're very flattering. I'm seeing more and more of them on the beach here.

    This describes the tankini I own, the bottoms have a skirt attached. Perhaps there are different types?

    The duathlete speaks- I do not swim for exercise; I only play in the water, lounge at the beach and pool - though sadly, not too much of this either. I have a bikini, a tankini and a one piece. In the last 3 years, I've only worn the bikini.
