Swimwear Section: Floral print tankini by Betsey Johnson

Bestsey_johnson_bikini We have a feeling this is one addition to the Swimwear Section that will divide opinions – largely because, at first glance, it doesn’t really look like swimwear at all, but more like some pretty lingerie or nightwear.

That said, we still think this little Betsey Johnson tankini has a lot going for it, especially for those of you who don’t feel comfortable letting it all hang out in a bikini. The structured top should help create an hourglass style silhouette, and actually looks pretty enough to be worn as a top with jeans on the way home from the beach, too.

As for the bottoms, well, if you don’t like this particular shape, there are a couple of other options to choose from in the same print,

Being Betsey Johnson, this isn’t cheap, of course, and it’ll cost you $144 for the top and $78 for the briefs, from Everything But Water.

    I love this, and the price really doesn’t make me love it any less.

    I’m with Becky, even though it does look a little ‘lingerie’ it is so,so pretty I want it anyway 🙂

    Love it! Even though I’m not a tankini gal, I think I’d wear this.

    Wow! Love love love! I’m not sure whether I love it because of the print or the cut. It’s yummy!

    I love it but not sure if I would feel comfortable wearing it in public… I would be worried that everyone thought I was out in my lingerie.
