The design of a swim dress

A swim dress bathing suit consists of:

  • a bathing suit
  • and a skirt or a little dress that is attached to the body of the bathing suit

In the 1940s swimwear became figure-flattering. Before this, there were many regulations about wearing sleeves and shorts at the right length. In some areas, beach censors actually checked upon women’s swimwear sizing!

A lot of swimwear is designed to make you feel more confident, whether you’re petite or plus-sized, we all have issues we maybe like to hide and accentuate what we like of ourselves.

The advantages of a swim dress

The look of a swim dress is very feminine and charming.

You can walk around feeling dressed in a one-piece.

  • the skirt is covering the tummy and hips
  • the skirt will dry quickly and you’ll always feel sure enough to walk around the pool or beach.

During swimming, this one-piece will give you all the comfort and freedom of movement you want. Afterward, it is so easy to relax at the pool or at the beach. You don’t have to get dressed to get a drink at the bar. A set of flip-flops will make you ready to go.
