The Best Swim Pants and Modest Swimwear for Total Body Confidence All Summer Long

Spread the love

This time of year there is always so much talk about getting our bodies “beach ready.” A plethora of new dietscellulite removersweight loss hacks, and crepey skin solutions are supposed to make us somehow feel better about the way we look in swimsuits. But no matter how much TLC we give ourselves, it’s impossible to avoid hang-ups about what we consider to be “imperfections” but are really just, you know, our bodies.

In the vein that, indeed, every body is a beach body, it’s not against the Empowered Woman Code to want a genuinely flattering swimsuit that you can feel comfortable wearing in and out of the pool. From plus size bikinis with flowy coverups to swim shorts and swimwear for women over 50, there are plenty of stylish suits to go around.

But if you’re looking for even more modest swimwear, swim pants and leggingsrashguard tops, and swim dresses provide not only ample asset coverage, but also excellent sun protection.

Scroll down for some of our favorite swim pants and full-coverage swimsuits from ModLi, a store that specializes in modest swimwear in all sizes.

The service was great and I love the swim skirt! I may even order different colors next time.

I absolutely love this! I love the shorts under so my thighs aren’t rubbing together but with the skirt on top so it’s still fashionable.

The quality is great. The fit was perfect using the fitting chart on the website. I was so happy to find modest yet attractive swimwear. Now I swim and entertain without worries of feeling over exposed.

Owner reviews:

I am very happy with my purchase of ModLi’s swim and running skort. It is exactly what I hoped it would be. The size is perfect. It arrived quite soon after I submitted my order. I have recommended ModLi to a number of my friends. Thanks, ModLi, for providing me with a comfortable swimming outfit.

This swim skirt exceeded my expectations. It’s super comfortable and well made. My favorite part is that it has snaps on the skirt between the legs. I snap it together in the water so it doesn’t float up. Then when I get out, it’s easy to unsnap so it’s a skirt again. I’m an XL and this was very flattering on me. I love it.

I bought this skirt to take on a Mediterranean cruise. It will cling to you but you can pull it out so it’s closer to its dry state. I’m glad I had this modest option so I could still enjoy the water!

This loose-fit swim dress is really just the swim version of your favorite tunic. It’s long enough to cover your bum, and comes with knee-length bike shorts so you can forget about your thigh jiggle and just enjoy the beach.

Owner reviews:

I love these bike shorts! So lightweight and comfortable as well as fast drying. I use under my skirts as well as with the swim dress they go with! The shorts are just ever so slightly big but that’s OK with me. I don’t want them overly tight.

The [shorts] were the perfect length, just above the knee. I used the size chart to determine my size. So I will say that they are true to the size chart. I washed them on the delicate cycle and hung to dry. They washed up nicely.

Owner reviews:

I ordered a swim skirt and shirt combo. The fit is true to size. I am a small/medium and the small fit me well without being too snug. The material is great! This will be used not just for swimming, but any hot days stuck out in the sun. Love it!

Love it..sizing is perfect. I enjoy the color, excellent seamstress work…timely arrival. It’s just right and modestly attractive.

Owner reviews:

“The price, shipping time, and selection were all reasonable. I liked being able to find a top with more coverage that didn’t look like an ‘old lady’… I bought a size that didn’t quite work and they told me to keep it and sent a new size out right away. As it was not their fault, I definitely did not expect that kind of service. I’m spreading the word to my family and friends!”

Love this top! It isn’t see-through when wet. It fits well when dry, but when it gets wet, it feels like it’s a bit bigger. Still would highly recommend it!

“I love this top. The fabric is great. The colors are vibrant.”
