One of my new year’s resolutions is to go swimming on a regular basis. My favorite Athleta Grapevine Shirred Tankini is just too precious to use all the time, so I picked up a  Solid Shirred Bra Cup Tankini and Full Tide Shirred Bottom  in FIJI GREEN to be my lap pool swimsuit.

While not as embellished as the Grapevine, this suit is just as flattering. It has the same slimming design and supportive construction – the doubled shoulder straps which can be adjusted to keep the girls in place, adjustable side shirring to contain my tummy or reveal more skin, removable padding in the underwire bra for additional cup coverage. The bottom has side shirring for wider leg opening, full seat coverage for more modesty. The suit is made of a UPF 50+ quick dry, breathable Nylon/Spandex fabric and has a Polyester lining. Comes in lots of vibrant colors with fancy names — Poseidon Blue, Black, Asphalt Gray, Otter Brown. Watermelon Pink, Raspberry Purple, and my Figi Green.




I am going to enjoy taking my sporty self to the pool — although truth be told, I am a “two laps and call it a day” kind of swimmer. At least I am going to look good.

Hand wash.
