Women's swim dresses

What is a Swim Dress?

A swim dress is a swimsuit with the silhouette of a minidress. It is similar to a one-piece bathing suit but offers more coverage over the thighs. Whereas a one-piece leaves the entire leg exposed, a swim dress will cover the upper part of your hips. This offers an alternative for those who may not feel comfortable with the exposure of a traditional bathing suit. The loose-fitting bottoms and added coverage of the swim dress will help you feel comfortable and confident this summer. It also provides extra sun protection.

Why Choose the Swim Dress?

The swim dress has many benefits, besides being a great looking bathing suit. With so many different bathing suits to choose from, here is why you should consider a swim dress the next time you make a swimsuit purchase.

  • Flattering: They are form fitting in the right places while still leaving much to the imagination, perfect for those looking for a bit of modesty at the beach or pool.
  • Versatile: Celebrating a more formal occasion by the water, or simply hanging out at the beach with your friends, swim dresses can be worn for any occasion.
  • Protection: The added coverage of a swim dress will help protect the upper thighs from harmful UV rays.
  • Sunbathing: You have control over how much sun your thighs get. Soak it up the way you want to.

Styles to Wear

Like traditional swimwear, swim dresses come in many different styles and shapes. They also offer many of the same options as a sundress, including a variety of necklines, straps, hemlines, prints and colors. Swim dresses also offer built-in support and control to shape your figure.
