Why Wear a Women's Swim Tank?

Women's swim tanks are an alternative swimsuit option for women who are looking for more modesty, more coverage, or more comfort. They're a great option if you are also looking for more of an active swimsuit top as often bikini tops don't offer this kind of support. They're also perfect if you'd like more coverage and prefer a modest swimsuit or just want to feel more comfortable if two-piece bathing suits are just not your thing.
