Tankini \tang-KEE-nee\ , noun;
1. A two-piece bathing suit having a top styled like a tank top
This word is first attested in 1985 and is a combination of tank top + bikini. Wikipedia says that it was invented in the late 1990's, but based on the attestation in 1985, that claim is false. It was invented by Anne Cole
