Swimsuit season is nearly upon us and, once again, it’s time to shop for a new bathing suit. It has the potential to be fraught with frustration, and since last year’s post on modest two-piece swimsuits was so popular, we’re back with the 2018 edition, reflecting current trends and available styles.
While one-piece swimsuits tend to be the go-to style when looking for full-coverage swimwear, there are actually lots of two-piece options available, and plenty of reasons to consider them, including:
- They’re more comfortable.
- You can buy different-sized tops and bottoms for a more custom fit.
- You can customize your preferences for top and bottom cuts.
- They are better for long torsos.
- They make trips to the ladies’ rooms infinitely easier.
So whether you’re helping your teen pick out their seasonal swimwear, are not quite as comfortable with your post-baby bod, or just prefer modest options as a matter of principle, here are ten options that might work for you!
Tahitian Bra Cup Bikini with Shorts: This sporty and stylish halter can be paired with board shorts for a super cute option for the active woman.
Susy in Pineapple (also available in solid black): Two words: cap sleeves! So sweet!

Jardin Seaside Bikini Top + White Tummy Tuk Shorts: This long tankini top with tie detail is super sweet and shows minimal cleavage. If you want extra coverage, these white board shorts would be so cute with it. Plus, they’re slimming!
Sea Angel Women’s Tile High Neck Tankini Top: Another halter! Loving all the high-neck options this year. Plus that cute ruffle detail on the bottom hides a tummy and adds interest to the traditional tankini.
Cupshe Fashion High Waist Tank Bikini: Still want a bikini, but not interested in showing EVERYTHING? The wrap detail here adds an unexpected fashion statement, the high waist covers your bottom, and the top shows zero cleavage. Here’s the perfect bikini for the modest but trendy woman!
Cupshe High-Waisted Bikini Set: Good news, modest mamas. The high waist is IN! This two-piece covers a majority of your midsection and shows minimal cleavage. Plus, the blousy top is flattering and visually interesting!
Zurich Devotee Tankini: How cute, feminine, and flattering is THIS trendy tankini? Not only does it offer full coverage of your chest and midsection, but it also covers your thighs if you’re self-conscious about them.

Women’s High Neck Tankini Top + Swim Shorts: The top is practically a tank; pair it with swim shorts and you’ve got an outfit that looks like it will work at the beach or the park. Versatility at its best!
