The submitted sample is a Style #277058 3-piece tugless tankini swim set consisting of a tankini top, bottom and skirt constructed of knit 80% nylon, 20% spandex fabric. The pullover top features double ¾-inch straps and straight-cut back, the bottom is brief-style and the swim skirt is pocketless. Style #277058 is sold as three-piece coordinated swimwear and is not sold as separates.

The applicable subheading for Style #277058 will be 6112.41.0010, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for track suits, ski-suits and swimwear, knitted or crocheted: women’s or girls’ swimwear: of synthetic fibers, of fabric containing by weight 5 percent or more elastomeric yarn or rubber thread women’s.
