Best One-Piece Bathing Suit for Women Over 50

UV Skinz’s Women’s Long Sleeve Half Zip Swimsuit 


UV Skinz's Women's One-Piece Swimsuit for Women Over 50Pros:

  • Provides sun protection with UPF 50+
  • Flattering
  • Available in sizes XS to 4XL
  • Stylish
  • Double lining for full coverage

For a flattering, high-quality bathing suit you can wear at any age, UV Skinz’s Women’s Long-Sleeve Half Zip Swimsuit is a dream come true. Available in sizes XS to 4XL this swimsuit works with all ages and body types. This swimsuit doesn’t ride up and offers moderate coverage for women looking for a more modest one-piece. 

If you’re a lap swimmer, you will love the thumb holes on the sleeves, which protect your hands from the sun’s rays - if you’ve had squamous cell cancer on the back of your hands, this is a big relief. 

UV Skinz's Happy CustomersIf you spend a lot of time outside at the beach, the pool, or by the lake, you will be thankful for the suit’s UPF 50+ rating, which protects you from 98% of the sun’s rays. 

According to our customer Marci P “ I love (this bathing suit), and the thumb holes work great to keep full coverage while swimming laps. The thicker fabric is definitely more than typical suits, yet keeps its shape when wet just fine. The front clasp on the built-in bra makes getting it on easy. The style and colors are flattering for a 60-something woman.”
