What Is Modest Swimwear?

Modest swimwear refers to swimsuits that offer more coverage than traditional bikinis or one-piece swimsuits. This can include longer hemlines, higher necklines, sleeves, and longer shorts. Modest swimwear is a popular choice for women who want to feel confident and supported in their swimwear choice for whatever reason. 

Why Is Modest Swimwear a Good Choice for Moms?

Modest swimsuits are perfect for moms who want to feel confident and comfortable at the beach or pool without sacrificing their personal style, comfort level, or beliefs. Here are some additional reasons why we love modest swimwear for moms:

  • Provides more coverage and tummy control.
  • Allows moms to adhere to their personal comfort level and belief system. 
  • Provides a more flattering look. 

With so many different styles, colors, and designs to choose from, modest swimwear is a versatile and practical choice for any mom who wants to feel her absolute best while enjoying some fun in the sun.

Types of Modest Swimwear

There are several different types of modest swimwear to choose from, depending on your style and preferences. Here are some popular options:

Modest One-Piece Swimsuits

One-piece swimsuits can offer more coverage, including tummy coverage, than traditional options. Look for styles with higher necklines, longer sleeves, and longer hemlines for a modest yet fashionable look.

If you've just had a baby and want a more flattering fit, look for looser-fitting swim dresses and swim shirts. 

Modest Two-Piece Swimsuits

Two-piece swimsuits don't have to be revealing or uncomfortable. Consider a tankini with a longer top and high-waisted long swim shorts for more coverage. Pair it with swim shorts or swim leggings for a flattering, comfortable look. 

Swim Dresses

Swim dresses are a stylish and feminine option for modest swimwear for moms. They typically feature longer hemlines, and some styles even have sleeves or higher necklines.

Rash Guards

Rash guards are a great option for women who would like to trade in their bikini top for a swim shirt. Rash guards typically feature longer sleeves and higher necklines and can be worn with swim shorts or swim leggings for more coverage.

    Tips for Finding the Right Modest Swimwear

    Here are some tips to help you find the right modest swimwear for your body:

    • Look for styles with high necklines, sleeves, and longer hemlines for more coverage.
    • Choose modest swimwear for women with UPF 50+ protection to protect your skin from the sun.
    • Consider adding swim tights, swim shorts, or a swim skirt for additional coverage.
    • Don't be afraid to mix and match different pieces to create a custom look that works for you.
    • Invest in high-quality swimwear that will last for multiple seasons and won't pill or fall apart after a couple of wears.
