English term or phrase: tanks/cover-ups
At Saturday afternoon‚s poolside swimwear show, Mattiolo dipped back into one-piece chic. Suitable for all body types, Mattiolo seemed to have a fit for any flaw. High-cut bikinis, concealing tanks, skirts and cover-ups that ranged in material from silk to plastic are fashioned for all tastes. Models adorned in Mattiolo mingled with guests all weekend, sharing samples of his passionately fruity female perfume and the fresh, citrus Gai Mattiolo Uomo, his most recent creation.

bata o batín de playa

El Harper Collins da *bata* o *batín* de playa para "beach wrap", que es sinónimo de *cover ups* [También, da *chaleco cerrado* para *tank top*, pero no me suena esa traducción. ]

pantalones de baño/otras prendas

The meaning is that he has a great variety of swimming suits, so you could use different words. E.g. traje de baño, bañador, bikini, tanga, pantaloncito, etc.

camisola and bata o batín

A tank top is a the fairly short, cut-up T-shirt, usually with no sleeves and cut to about the midriff (encima del ombligo). Bata or batín is just that. It normally would be "accompanied" by beach or poolside or home, as in bata de casa. It refers to any garment that covers, at least, the hips and is worn over something.
¡Buena suerte!
