2020's Easy Money Making Strategies - Register now!

You wouldn’t have necessarily thought it, but beaches and pools are swimming (pardon the pun) with long-sleeve swimsuits this summer. There’s a trend to be had when it comes to cozzies every year, and we’ve already picked out a couple of the best bikinis and a handful of sports swimsuits to get us going this season. But we’re on the hunt for something with a little more coverage, too.

Things like traditional surf-inspired wetsuits spring to mind initially, but a quick Google search reveals there are plenty of options when it comes to long-sleeve swimwear. There’s your one-piece swimming costume and classic rash vest, or more modern alternatives such as cropped styles (to pair with high-waist bikini bottoms) and long tunics for those who wish or need to conceal as much as possible. Head to our edit of the best modest swimwear if this is you.

Whether you prefer an athletic look or simply want a little more sun protection, a long-sleeve swimsuit is as tempting as taking a dip in the sea. You can never own too much swimwear in our opinion, especially when you can wear pieces out of the water too (think bodysuits or crop tops). Long-sleeve swimsuits are the ultimate versatile addition to make to your chest of drawers, not to mention how popular they’ve become since Adele posted a pic of her wearing one on Instagram, so you can bet we’ll be adding several to our poolside edits. If they’re good enough for Rolling In The Deep (couldn’t help it) then they’re good enough for us.

This long sleeved surf design from Rip Curl features flattering cut-outs to the stomach and back for a sultry flash of skin, while this Y-3 AOP Long Sleeve Swimsuit from Adidas hosts a zip to the neckline for a personalised finish – not to mention the stunning floral artwork printed on top. Nike Victory’s Full-Coverage Swim Tunic pairs perfectly with the matching leggings and hijab, but it can be worn alone with a pair of bikini bottoms too – the world is your oyster!
