This is my second list to share on modest swimsuits and swimwear. The Modest Mom may not be in agreement with the entire contents of each site listed. It is left to your discernment to glean what will be of help to you and your family. Each family has different ideas as to what is modest swimwear. These postings will not be addressing what is or what is not modest with swimsuits.
It is possible to buy a swimsuit that looks modest on top but you may want to be more covered on the bottom. You could then buy some swim trunks or a swim skirt to wear over the swimsuit and make it more modest. This is one idea to share. You could wear a swimsuit with your own pair of shorts over the top. Check the clothing policies if you will be swimming in a pool. Many pool owners will not allow clothing shorts.

  1. Dear Caroline,
    I have found your site to be very helpful. I am only 18 years old but I really enjoy dressing like a lady, so it has been a struggle to find modest, affordable, and yet stylish swimwear. But I have finally found the answer! has an adorable swimsuit pattern out that is versatile and easily altered to fit any person, any budget, and any modesty standard. And if you don't feel up to sewing your own, you can try for ready-made swimdresses. Here's to hoping your swimwear search is as successful as mine!

  2. This list is so comprehensive, and very, very helpful. I linked a post of mine (below) to this page so those reading my blog could find your list, too.

    It is so nice to see companies and families who make and sell suits that are truly modest and covering like the ones you list here.

    I borrowed from some of the suits I looked at from a few of these links you posted and came up with my own modest swimwear solution last summer. My “suit” has since been updated to a newer, purple exercise top and coordinating swim skirt. For anyone curious about this, here is the link to my blog post:



  3. Hi Deborah,
    I am so delighted to see your website and to know also that you have a blog. This site is especially wonderful for young girls and women who do not want to compromise their values ‘just because’ others do. Thank you for pursuing and reaching your goals. What a gift you have given us! Warm regards, Carole Castagna

  4. Hi
    Weren’t you the lady who had a picture of a very cute modest suit with richer sides and skirted bottom over biking type shorts? I’d really like to see that picture again! It’s the cutest suit I’ve seen!


  5. These are great! I was initially attracted to the swimsuit in the intro, but I love the Beach Belle shortini! Since I enjoy really swimming and boating, That looks like an outfit that would stay in place instead of creeping into places I don’t want it going 🙂 Just Awesome!

  6. Awesome list! Loved all of them. I recently bought few swimwears for myself and my sister from EastEssence. People looking for women’s plus size swimwear can consider that store. They’ll get a good range there.
