11 Long-Sleeve Bathing Suits That Have Us Saying Bye to the Bikini

July 5, 2018

Long-sleeve swimsuit. Wait, did she just say long-sleeve swimsuit? Yes, you heard that right, and while you may be protesting at the thought of it, hear me out for a second. Previously, most of my summer bathing suit shopping consisted of finding the perfect itsy bitsy teeny weeny bikini, but recently I’ve been introduced to the long-sleeve bathing suit and let me tell you I am on board!

First of all, if you’re anything like me and love a good cannonball or are the first one on the paddleboard at your friend’s lake house, then you also appreciate coverage. With a long-sleeve swimsuit you’re protected against any, ahem, wardrobe malfunctions. And if you’re into surfing, a long-sleeve bathing suit is the answer to your prayers–chic and functional.

But best of all, a long-sleeve swimsuit will give you added protection against the sun with many of them including added UV protection so you can feel extra confident as you strut your stuff on the beach.  Two perfect suits for added protection are the Kelly and Mila by Mott50.  I love their fun prints and fast-drying fabric!
