Great Modest Swimwear

Swimsuit fashion has changed a lot over the years, going from modest, to not so modest, to the wide range of styles available today. The last time I went to the coast I was surprised to see quite a few modest swimsuits up and down the beach. Customizing your swimwear to your modesty comfort level and still looking stylish has never been easier. When you go shopping for your next swimsuit here are some of the options you may want to look into.

  • One Piece Suits. A one piece can give you anywhere from quite a bit of coverage to medium coverage. This is the best choice for you if you do not like the idea of your stomach showing. It is also often times the most flattering kind of suit.
  • Two Piece Suits. No longer does this mean a tiny little bikini. Styles in both tops and bottoms can offer lots of coverage. In tops you can get a tankini as an alternative. These come in many styles from thicker strapped tanks to halters and you can find longer cuts in the torso if you want to be sure your tummy stay covered. There is also the t-shirt style called a rash guard that is worn by many water sport athletes and gives the most coverage in a top. For bottoms the variety is a little smaller, but you do have the option of bikini, brief, skort, or short styles. In many stores they sell these types of suits as separates, giving you the chance to pick the pieces you like and use your personal style.
  • Board Shorts. Another style popularized by athletes, board shorts come in all sizes and lengths and are available almost anywhere. This is a great way to get coverage for your legs. These can be worn over a one piece suit or added to a two piece suit for a little extra modesty. Some shorts for women can be on the short side, if you would rather have a longer pair and cannot find any in your local stores, try a surf shop. In stores where they sell surfing, waterskiing, or wakeboarding equipment you will most likely be able to find some longer shorts. Men have different lengths too and you can try the same places if you are finding it difficult to locate a length you like.

Modest swimsuits are everywhere, in ever different style and color. Be brave and try a style you normally would not wear, you might actually like the way is fits and looks. Find some pieces that will work for you, show your style, and make a splash next time you are poolside.
