Modest Bathing Suit Styles

The Best Modest Bathing Suit Styles

Many women consider modesty when searching for swimwear but are unaware of the fashionable designs to select from. There’s this idea that modest pieces are always dull, not in trend, and unflattering which makes women give up on finding swimwear that caters to their preference. BeachCandy believes every woman should have a range of options and should know of them, which is why we want to introduce to you our most popular and modest swimsuit designs. 


Lots of misconceptions are attached to modest swimwear, one of them being that two pieces can’t be conservative but this isn’t always true. Unlike typical bikini tops, tankinis tend to cover more areas, such as the chest or stomach, and stop at the waist. Tankinis come in different cuts, meaning some may be more revealing than others which leaves you with a sufficient amount of choices.

JENNA Handkerchief Tankini Top

The simple yet eye-catching JENNA Handkerchief Tankini Top conceals the tummy but reveals the back for a twist. It’s strapless with a straight across neckline that covers the bust area and includes a built-in shelf bra that compliments the figure. 

SOPHIA Ruffle Tankini

The SOPHIA Ruffle Tankini includes an open back, push-up ability, and tummy coverage. This top comes with the option to add padding and adjustable ties in the back to help create the perfect fit. This top is ideal for women who want coverage mainly in the front.

STACIA Slimming Tankini Top

The STACIA Slimming Tankini Top offers the most amount of coverage compared to our other tankinis. It’s a supportive, comfortable, and classic top that’s suitable for all body types. Have a good time without worrying if you’re exposing too much since coverage is offered in both the front and back. 

If you’re looking for swimsuits with high necklines, this is a great choice because the neckline is adjustable so you can have a low or high neck on it if you want. If you’d like to cover the arms as well, add a long sleeve cover up to your look.

Swim Skirts

Swim skirts are the perfect combination of femininity and modesty. Wear a skirt detached from a bottom as a cover up or enjoy the convenience of one with a bottom attached. They’re also great for times when you’ll be more active, such as when walking on the beach or hosting a swim party. Perhaps the best part about swim skirts is that, like swim shorts, they can be worn in or out of the water.

LISA Swim Skirt

If you’re someone who travels a lot or just wants something easy to pack, the LISA Swim Skirt is for you. It not only easily packs but quickly dries for convenience, making it a must-have. Wear over your favorite bikini bottom as a cover up outside of the water or during a swim or mix and match with our one piece bathing suits to create cute and stylish swim dresses.

KYLIE Swim Skort

The KYLIE Swim Skort is another great alternative to a typical bikini bottom. It comes with full coverage bikini bottoms attached underneath and a no-squeeze waistband for support. The fold-over waistband is adjustable--wear it low or raise it up if you prefer high waisted bikinis with tummy control. Pair with any of our swim tops and create the perfect ensemble for lying by the beach, playing water sports, anything you like--you’ll feel confident in your swimsuit for sure!

One Pieces

One piece bathing suits have always been a go-to when it comes to modesty. They’re great because they come in various styles, easily pair with cover ups, and shorts can go over them for extra coverage until it’s swim time.

ELYSIA Slimming One Piece Swimsuit

The bestselling ELYSIA Slimming One Piece Swimsuit truly does it all by offering coverage, support, and comfort. The cut in the back and Swarovski Crystals along the straps are details you can’t miss. Increase the coverage by slipping the LISA Swim Skirt over or adding a cover up to the look and you're ready for off-the-beach activity.

The LIZ Ruffle One Piece is a favorite modest bathing suit style among customers! It’s a timeless piece with an off the shoulder option but we recommend attaching the straps if you’re seeking extra support. The ruched waistline and ruffles make this an unforgettable, feminine look.
