Our Guide to Modest Swimwear Styles

If you love splashing about in the sunshine but the latest trend of skimpy swimwear turns you off, Capriosca Swimwear has you covered. Literally. Discover our picks for the best modest swimwear to buy this summer, and cover up in style. 

Feel confident to step out in your swimsuit when you shop our extensive range of stylish plus size and modest bathers. We’ve set the bar high when it comes to flattering silhouettes and fashion styles, so take your pick of modern modest bathers this season.

No matter your personal style or your specific needs, there is a modest swimsuit to suit you. 

Swim Dresses

Women of all shapes and sizes deserve to feel good about their bodies. If showing less makes you feel more, have a look at our contemporary designs, beginning with the Swim Dress.

The ultimate in discreet designs, our swim dresses come in basic black or eye-catching contrast pattern-and-plain designs that offer support where you need it most. Our swim dress styles feature a built in one piece that supports and shapes, while the dress overlay skims over your body.

Modest Swimwear Separates

Probably the best thing about modern swimwear is the choice of combinations. Once, you could only buy a bikini set in one size for top and bottom. Now, you can mix and match styles, sizes and silhouettes.

Modest Tankini Tops

The tankini has taken two-piece swimwear to the next level and Capriosca has endless styles to choose from.  Our best selling 3 Tier Tankini Top is ideal for dressing modestly at the beach. This frill design is less body-conscious than some of our form fitting styles with the top offering both coverage and support.

Full Coverage Swim Bottoms

Depending on your shape, you may favour more reserved coverage for your bottom half. If you're after a bottom that has extra leg coverage, try one of our longer leg styles. Choose from boyleg, bike pant, and 3/4 length pant styles.

Modest One Piece Swimsuits

There’s nothing like a classic one piece for chic sophistication at the beach. This effortless style covers the midriff and comes in a range of form-fitting designs to suit all types of curves.

Long Sleeve One Piece

Providing modesty and sun protection, the stylish yet practical long sleeve one piece has become a popular swimsuit for women from all walks of life. Easy to get in and out of, this zip front style works for active women, mothers, surfers, swimmers, and those who want full coverage for the upper body. 

Frill Sleeve One Piece

Another fabulous zip front style is the ever-popular frill sleeve one piece. This swimsuit offers modesty with full torso coverage and feminine flutter sleeves. Pair this style with a cute skater skirt to provide coverage for your hips and bottom. 

3 Tier One Piece

Just like our ruffle tankini top, the 3 tier one piece is ideal if you want coverage for your curves. The cascading frills skim over the bust, belly, and hips, to give you coverage where you want it, while still showing off your shape.

Beach Cover Ups

Rash vests, kaftans, swim skirts, board shorts, and sarongs, are all essentials for a modest summer wardrobe. Instantly provide yourself with stylish coverage by throwing on a waterproof swim separate like a rashie, skirt, or shorts. 

You can get creative by mixing and matching your swim separates and cover ups to create the perfect modest swimsuit for your needs. For more inspiration on how to mix and match swimwear, read our informative and entertaining blog.
