Suit up for summer in women’s swimwear that helps you look and feel confident and comfortable. One type of swimsuit to consider is the modest one-piece or tankini with tummy control. The fabric delivers a smoothing effect, and the design provides plenty of coverage. Keep reading to learn more about this and other swimsuit styles that come in sizes to fit and flatter every body.
There’s an array of one-piece bathing suits with tummy control, some of which have a modest design. If you like the look of a scoop-neck tummy control one-piece but want to cover more skin, high scoop-neck suits equipped with UPF 50+ for sun protection and control lining offers a smooth look. Some have adornments like faux belts for a waist-enhancing effect, along with sewn-in soft-cup bras for gentle shaping and support.
Another option is a tummy control cap-sleeve swimsuit. This style has the same control lining, with cap sleeves for comfort and more coverage for your arms. Details like crisscross straps impart a sporty look to any one-piece swimsuit, including the cap-sleeve style. When it comes to the neckline, a gentle scoop neck adds a ballerina-inspired look to this swimsuit style and provides coverage that safeguards against UV rays.
One-shoulder suits are on-trend for summer and come with control lining. They’re also adjustable for an impeccable fit no matter what your size and they have a high neckline that’s modest and stylish. The one-shoulder swimsuit isn’t just for looks, though. It’s also super comfortable and won’t put pressure on your neck from a too-tight tank.
The tummy-control modest swim dress provides figure-flattering elegance with ample coverage. This swimsuit style combines a one-piece bathing suit and tricot dress to enhance every body type, whether your size is petite, plus, tall, or regular. Some swim dresses have underwire bras with removable cups for bustline support and an optional boost, along with crisscross shirring for additional shaping.
The one-piece isn’t the only modest swimsuit option with tummy control. The tankini offers all the advantages of a one-piece with added fashion versatility. Tankini tops and bottoms come in a variety of modest styles, including some of the same as you’ll see with one-piece swimsuits.
In addition to the scoop-neck tankini, another style is the high keyhole neck, which provides ample coverage for modesty and sun protection but still looks fashionable. Keyhole-neck tankini tops come in many colors and prints, ranging from basic solids like black and navy to vibrant tropical motifs and retro polka dots.
When it comes to modest tankini bottoms, there are even more choices. High-waisted bikini bottoms are comfortable, stylish, and offer a good bit of coverage, but for even more coverage, you can choose from swim shorts in different lengths. Swim shorts are good for water sports, swimming, or lounging on the sand, and they can be mixed and matched with any tankini top you choose.
Swim skirts are another type of tankini bottom to consider. They also come in different lengths, and some have control lining for a smooth look. As with tankini tops, bikini bottoms, and shorts, swim skirts are available in multiple colors and prints, so you can find one that complements your tankini top. You’ll even find swim leggings for times when full-leg coverage is desired.
No matter what type of one-piece tummy control swimsuit or two-piece tankini you choose, look for chlorine-resistant fabric, which contains Lycra® Xtra Life™—a material that lasts an estimated 10 times longer than regular spandex. The material is colorfast for vibrancy that lasts all summer, plus it won’t lose its structure even after repeated wearing and washing.
Keeping your swimwear in great condition all summer is simple. It’s recommended that you hand-wash rather than use your washing machine. You can simply rinse in cool water or rinse then use a mild detergent and gentle scrubbing motions. Once you’ve rinsed all the soap out of your suit with cool water, gently squeeze the water out. Lay your bathing suit flat on a towel, roll it up to press more water out, then unroll and let it air-dry out of direct sunlight.
In addition to the wide variety of modest tummy control swimwear, you’ll find plenty of choices when shopping for beach cover-ups. Long-sleeve women’s rash guard tops are one option—they offer ample coverage and protect covered areas against UV rays. Long cover-up dresses can be worn over your suit after you’re done swimming. Pair them with flip-flops, water shoes, or wedge sandals for a cute outfit that you can wear to an outdoor café.
With plenty of swimwear options out there, can put together a collection of modest swimsuits that you’ll love to wear all summer.
