Gorgeous Swim Dresses to wear in Australia

You’ve got beach plans so we’ve got swim dresses for your sunny beach day activities. If you are someone who loves one piece swimsuits, you will love trying a swim dress.


Made for those ladies who prefer more coverage, class and modesty, our swim dresses are made to look and feel great.


There are so many reasons to get a swim dress in Australia and we are here to tell you why.Beautifully crafted plus size swim dresses from Capriosca Swimwear Australia.


Our swim dress range includes strapless swim dresses, wide strap versions, underwire and chlorine resistant swim dresses in some amazing prints and plain black.No longer will you be feeling concerned in your swimsuit, embrace the beach and enjoy summer in a Capriosca Swimwear Swim dress and you will never look back. Now, let me tell you why these are what you need!


Here are a few reasons to look at getting yourself a swim dress:


Swim Dress Coverage

Swim dresses are a fun, flirty, feminine take on traditional one pieces. They  feature a skirted bottom for more coverage on the hips, thighs and rear, something that is hard to find in your standard one piece swimwear stores.  


Capriosca Swimwear”s plus size swim dresses are fashionable, our designs and prints are on trend for Summer 2020. A skirted swimsuit is always a great option for those ladies who like to cover the top of their legs.


Ladies will also wear these with our knee length bike pant to give them the extra leg coverage right to the knee.  These are available in both plain black and plain navy chlorine resistant fabric and up to a size 30.

Swimsuit Cover Up

What’s more,  they are so much more than just a swimsuit. These modest swim dress swimsuits can mimic cover ups – wear them in the water or out and about!


Perfect for a pear body shape, a swim dress is designed to flatter you. With a one piece built in underneath, a swim dress has a larger bit of fabric over the top that looks exactly like a dress.


If you like the added coverage of length over your upper thighs, you will love our swim dress styles. What’s more, you can find comfort all day long as you wear one of our swim dresses.


As there is a larger bit of fabric over the top, you can feel relaxed and comfortable all day long as you cruise around the beaches. Feel relaxed and confident as you walk along the beach and even go for a dip!


Thick Straps

With thick shoulder straps, our Australian made swim dresses stay put while you swim or play with the kids on the beach.


Most of our gorgeous swim dresses are constructed with wider straps for the added support however we also made swim dresses that have thinner straps. Both of our swim dress styles offer adjustable straps so give you the best bust support.


Our bandeau swim dress is perfect for those with a smaller bust or pear shape.  This style does come with adjustable and removable straps. For the perfect tan by the pool or walking on the beach the removable straps are a great option.


Underwire Swim Dress

Our swim dresses such as the Navy and White Dots Underwire Swim Dress, the Safari Underwire Swim Dress and our Chlorine Resistant Underwire Swim Dress both have underwires and thinner straps. The only three in our range with these features.  


The underwire style comes with a double strap feature, both of these straps are adjustable and the double strap gives you extra bust support.


This swim dress style is an empire cut, coming in under the bust and then cut on a A line so that it doesn’t hug the body and is comfortable around the stomach and hips.


Chlorine resistant swim dress

On the other hand you have the Chlorine Resistant Navy and White Dots, Black Tropics, Black and White Dots panelled swim dresses which all have wider straps and a shelf bra. These prints have panelled plain sides to minimise the middle section of your body.


From sleek solids to eye-catching prints, we have swim dress swimwear for every body and every personality. And with swimsuits that fit as well as ours, we know you’ll feel beautiful.  We know that everyone loves the Australian summer and can’t wait to get in the water.


We have made our swim dress range suited for everyone. If you are doing aqua aerobics, going to swimming lessons or just planning on using the resort spa, our chlorine resistant swim dresses are the perfect thing for you.


Unlike normal lycra, these swim dresses are made to last in the chlorinated water and they won't fade or fall apart.  Normal lycra isn’t as strong in these types of water so they will fade and fall apart after a period of time. Make sure that you are buying the right swim dress for the right occasion.


For a swimsuit to be chlorine resistant it needs to be 100% polyester which means it can stand up to the harsh chemicals in a pool up to three times longer than your normal lycra. It is also quick drying and won’t fade as quickly.


Give them a twirl at the pool, beach, boardwalk...anywhere you go! Our Capriosca Swimwear swim dresses are elegant, fun and completely versatile. You can’t go wrong with a swim dress if you prefer added coverage, you are a pear shape, if you need added bust support and wider straps.


Fitting up to a size 30, our swim dresses cover you whether you are going to the beach or the local pool. Not only this, but our swim dresses have been designed in Australia and can fit up to a F/G cup!


Regardless of your next holiday, you should check out our swim dress range today and get inspired by the stunning prints and colours.


Our team are online 24/7 to help you find the perfect fitting swimsuit for you today!

Size guide

All of our swimsuits are true to size. This means you should follow your normal sizing.

The best guide is your underwear - so what you would wear in a bra and undies is the size you order from us in tops and bottoms. For example, in you wear an 18E bra, you should order a size 18 swimsuit top from us.

If you are looking for a one piece and are in between sizes, say an 18E bra and a 20 in underpants, we recommend choosing the larger of the two sizes - so a size 20 in this case.

If you have any issues with your new swimsuit, we do 30 day refunds for full priced items and exchanges for all items - so you can swap to a size or style that is more suitable for you!
