Yesterday, we examined a growing trend toward more modest swimwear. Women choose modest swimsuits for a variety of reasons; because they don’t want to be ogled on the beach; because they have some problem areas they want to cover up; or even for religious reasons. While we don’t have any of the serious coverage that a practicing Muslim might need to wear at the pool or beach, we do have some stylish swimwear options for women who prefer more coverage and a more modest look. Here are a few of our favorites!
Freya Active Swim Tankini with Freya Active Swim Short Brief
The Freya Active Swim Tankini 3184 is a great option for a woman who wants more modest coverage without feeling like she’s completely hiding her body. The Active Swim Tankini is perfect for women who want to play beach sports, kayak or lead an active lifestyle that requires swimwear instead of more standard clothes. Powernet back wings offer support in this form-fitted tankini, and it’s made of a rigid simplex with a crossover back that is both flattering and supportive. Higher neckline and fuller coverage is great for a modest look.
Pair it with the Freya Active Swim Short Brief 3191 – a full coverage brief that comes up higher in the waist and lower on the legs and bottom than many swimsuit bottoms today. This swim short boasts a comfortable fit that won’t compromise performance, and it’s great if you’re looking for a bottom that will move with you and won’t leave you feeling too revealed.
Full-Coverage Swimwear from Aerin Rose
Who says that full coverage has to be boring and stodgy? The Aerin Rose Sexy Drape Front Underwire Bandeau Blouson Swim Suit 200 defies the stereotype, by providing a modest, flattering full-coverage swimsuit top that still doesn’t reveal all. Your bust is completely covered in this swimsuit, and it also features a flattering drape front that can camouflage problem areas and also prevents your body from being on total display. Just because you’ve got it doesn’t mean you have to flaunt it!
To complete your modest, stylish look, pair it with the Aerin Rose Swim Skirt and Brief 555. This swim skirt is a high-waist bikini brief with an attached skirted overlay that offers full coverage in front and back. It offers modest coverage to upper-to-mid thigh, and completes a look that transitions seamlessly from kiddie poolside to the country club without missing a beat.
Sunsets Separates Mix-and-Match Pieces
Sunsets Separates offers some sexy styles, but it also offers some more modest mix-and-match pieces for a woman who doesn’t want to reveal all. Start with the Sunsets Separates Woman Scoop Neck Shirred Tankini 394T, with its higher scoop neck and full coverage under the arms. You can even add a mastectomy pad to this swimsuit if you want. The high scoop-back design offers moderate coverage, and the front boasts moderate to conservative coverage. Match it with your choice: the Sunsets Woman Skirted Brief 96B or the Sunsets Woman Swim Shorts 98B to create the modest look you want.
