Misses' Tankini & Shirt
Sizes: XS-S-M-L-XL

Misses' tankini and shirt are designed for two-way stretch fabrics with 75% stretch and the greatest degree of stretch on the lengthwise grain.  We suggest using swimwear fabric with spandex-Lycra.

Our tankini has a shelf bra lining with elastic and contrasting bindings with elastic at the top edges and shoulder straps.  The boy cut panties have a partial lining on the front with a waist that is finished with contrasting bindings encasing elastic.  The leg openings are finished with elastic.  View B's panties are low cut.  The shirt has short sleeves and a V-neckline finished with contrasting binding.
