The Tango Dress: An Easy-to-Wear Dress for a Day (and Night) at the beach

June 08, 2018

What makes for a great cover-up? I can list some off the top of my head. Perhaps one that won’t make me look all scruffy after a long trip. Maybe one that’s light and easy enough to wear as I lounge around, should I decide I’m already getting too much sun or I’m feeling a little chilly from the sea breeze.

Or it could be as simple as one that’s easy to pull on and off—because, really, who likes the inconvenience of slipping on a complicated cover-up in the middle of the beach, with bystanders looking at every awkward move? I know I don’t. Oh, that would be the worst!

The Tango Dress is a tube dress, and that means one thing for me: I can just slip it on in seconds! Designing this dress, one of the highlights that I came up with is the very durable protective elastic underneath the bust line, so it’s really easy to just slide over the hips, or even over the head, without feeling like I could suffer from a wardrobe malfunction in public.





Some of my friends who have tried on this dress shared with me that they like the fact that they can wear this dress just fine without a bra, because the protective elastic is reliable enough to support the bust area. They say it’s perfect for after you’re done trying to have an even, bikini line-free tan! And I agree!  

I also love the fabric of the Tango Dress. All of the materials that this dress is made of are so light and airy and the dress does not ever wrinkle. I can just throw it in inside my weekend bag, and it will still look good as new when I take it out and unpack it after a long trip.  

With its length that falls just on the ankles, I think the Tango Dress would match perfectly from sandals to wedge (because, ladies, I know we all should have separate footwear for two moods: sandals for when we’re feeling more laid-back, and wedge for when we’re feeling more glam).

The available prints are also fun and flashy! Whatever the style I’m going for, I can just choose from the following prints: the leopard, the feather, the peacock, the paisley and the solid black. And after a day at the beach, I can even fancy it up further with a little necklace, or maybe some dangly earrings, and I’d already be ready for dinner or getting drinks.

How about you, have you tried this dress yet? Share with me your experiences and what you love about it! Can’t wait to hear from you!

Welcome to the Nicolita Fitting Room!

I want to help you find the Perfect Fit Nicolita Style. Below I have created a Nicolita Swimwear Fit guide to match your curves with our swimwear options and styles. If you still have questions of which bikini or one piece style would look best with your body shape just Call 866-NICOLITA (866-642-6548)  Email hola@mynicolita, or Skype me @mynicolita.     

Over the last 13 years since I started Nicolita in 2003, I have worked with a lot of Nicolita clients on selecting the perfect swimsuit for them. I'm the first to admit that wearing a bikini or one piece swimsuit can be challenging for the majority of us. Even if you have a rockin' body, there are certain styles that work better on certain body shapes.

But I am a strong believer that there is the perfect swimsuit out there for you. And we have gone ahead and picked out some styles that are flattering for you!

Larger cup sizes (D cup and up)

Women with larger cup sizes are primarily looking for 2 things when trying on swimwear: coverage and support. While going up a size in the top can provide more coverage, some styles just won’t provide the coverage and support you may be looking for. Look for styles with side boning and molded cups to give you the support and coverage you desire, without the pinching of an underwire!

For support and coverage, check out:
Maria Knotty Wrap Twist Top

Molded Push Up Bikini Top


Smaller Bust

Have a smaller bust and want to create the illusion of a bigger chest? Styles with details like ruffles and molded cups will add volume and create cleavage!

For adding volume to a smaller chest, check out:

Haute Dot Bow Tie Bikini Tube Top

Rumba Ruffles Triangle Halter


Broad Shoulders

If you’re looking to tone down the appearance of broad shoulders, look for one-shoulder and detailed tops which will draw attention away from wide set shoulders. Deep V necklines will keep the attention focused on your chest and the low cut back will make your shoulders appear more narrow.

To elongate the torso, check out:

Rumba Ruffles One Shoulder Top

Neon Bloom Deep V One Piece


Not So Curvy

Looking to add more curve to that backside? Look for bottoms with backside details like ruffles, shirring, or our signature knotty bottom. These details add more curve to your bottom and create a more shapely bum.

Tummy Control

We all have those days we would rather cover our midsection. To conceal your midriff while flattering your other assets, look for styles that have shirring throughout the midsection to camouflage any insecurities.

Noche Cha Cha High-Waisted Bottoms


More Coverage Overall

Trying to keep your skin out of the sun, or just desire to be more covered? Look for styles that provide more coverage without sacrificing style, like high-neck tops, high-waist bottoms, and one pieces!
