Ladies Modest Swimwear

Here at Curvy Swimwear, we want to help you find the perfect swimsuit. If coverage is what you're after, we have beautiful swimsuits to fit and flatter all shapes and sizes.

We are being asked for modest swimwear more often as a large part of our customer base is mature women. These days swimwear seems to be getting smaller and smaller, showing much more skin. Options for more stylish coverage is getting harder to find.

We believe our offering of modest swimwear styles has just what you're after for extra coverage this summer.

What is Modest Swimwear?

So, what is considered modest swimwear? Modest swimwear is designed to minimise how much skin or bust is shown. Rather than a swimsuit with a V neckline, you may prefer one with a straight across neckline, or even higher neck line.

You would also be looking at swimwear that doesn't have an open back or a high cut pant. Essentially, swimwear that shows the least skin can be considered modest swimwear. It is still possible to look and feel fantastic while enjoying the beach or pool, while staying covered up.

Long Sleeve Swimwear

We have a lot of swimsuit styles that are more modest than others. Our long sleeve one piece swimsuits are a perfect option for women wanting to keep their top half covered and protected from the sun.

These swimsuits are great for spending long days on the beach or swimming laps in your local pool. With an athletic aesthetic, these swimsuits provide coverage while still being easy to move around in.

Features like panelling, ruching and waistband details make these one piece bathers an excellent tummy control option. Zip them all the way up when you want full coverage or let the zip down if you feel like showing a little skin. 

The leg line in our long sleeve swimsuits is a flattering mid rise. Not too high, not too low, it follows the lines and folds in the body for your most flattering rise to lengthen the leg.

Swim Dresses

We have a fabulous range of swim dresses with built in pants. This is a fabulous style for ladies who want to cover the hips, thighs and bottom. We offer ladies swim dresses with a built in pant, a large dress over the top, a straight neckline as well as wide straps and a high back.

Our wide strap swim dress collection features beautiful, feminine swimsuits for ladies wanting to reduce the amount of cleavage shown. The straight neckline offers flattering and modest coverage with a built-in shelf bra for comfortable bust support. 

The skirt skims over the hips to provide coverage for the bottom and upper thighs. The built in mid-rise pant sits at a comfortable and flattering position on the hips so you feel secure in your swim dress.

Another long sleeve option is our collection of rash vests. We have both long and short sleeve styles to suit your needs. Choose from a zip up swim jacket style or a longer length rash vest that you throw on over your head. 

Our rash guard collection includes prints and plains to mix and match with your swimsuit wardrobe. Pool swimmers can also choose a chlorine resistant option which will survive the harsh chemicals in pools and spas.
