It would seem that the bathing dress has long been a relic of the past. Bathing suits, which women wore a century and a half ago, very little resembled modern miniature swimsuits. In order to take healing water procedures, ladies had to wear a lot of things, including a bathing shirt on the floor with long sleeves and a collar, pants and a cap. At the same time, bathing clothes were sewed from dense matter, which hid the contours of the body, even when wet. Weighting agents were put in the hem of the bathing dress, so that it would not rise in the water and would not open the legs.

Over time, women's bathing suits became more concise. The most minimalistic version of this outfit is a bikini swimsuit, which is just a few tiny pieces of fabric. However, in recent years, solid swimsuits, made in the form of a short dress, have become increasingly popular. This original article is the subject of today's article.

Features swimwear dresses

Bathing dress, or swim dress is a one-piece swimsuit with a skirt. The swimsuit bodice can be absolutely any - a classic sporty top with two straps, a gang, bustier, V-shaped, “heart”, etc. No less diverse and styles of skirts. On sale you can find models with a short skirt, wings, with a pleated skirt, with a wide flounce and many more different options.

The skirt can begin under the bust, at the waist or at the hips. On sale there are bathing dresses long mini and midi.

Who is suitable?

Traditionally, the swimsuit dress is intended for plump girls. Indeed, one-piece swimsuits with a skirt are perfect for owners of magnificent forms. They do well with the task of masking the most problematic areas: the hips and abdomen. In addition, solid swimsuits have a small dragging effect and help hide skin defects, such as postpartum stretch marks.

However, such swimsuit is not contraindicated for other types of figure - quite the contrary.

  • Best of all, the bathing dress looks on girls with an hourglass shape: it well emphasizes the slim waist, rounded hips and breasts.
  • If you have wide hips, you should choose a swimsuit dress with a straight skirt, but voluminous top.
  • Owners of small breasts and narrow hips, on the contrary, need a magnificent skirt and bodice, decorated with ruffles or drapes.


Bathing dresses are made from the same materials as ordinary swimsuits. The choice of fabrics is not so great, because swimwear must meet several strict requirements.

So, the fabric for a swimsuit dress should be:

  • dense;
  • easy;
  • opaque;
  • elastic;
  • wear resistant;
  • "Breathable";
  • quick-drying.

Bathing costumes are most often made of synthetic materials with the inclusion of natural fibers. The composition of the dress-swimsuit may include: nylon, microfiber, polyester, lycra, polyamide, etc. Clothing made of these materials tolerates exposure to water (including chlorinated) and ultraviolet rays.


Short swimsuit dress in its appearance most of all resembles a classic one-piece swimsuit. It has a small, “symbolic” skirt that barely covers the buttocks. This option is most often chosen by young girls with narrow hips.

Swimwear with long skirt more like an ordinary summer dress. The skirt usually comes to mid-thigh, but for some models it ends at the knee level. With the help of such a bathing dress, you can easily disguise the fullness in the hips or cellulite.

Swimsuit dress - This is one of the most popular types of swimwear. She is distinguished by a bodice on thin straps and a loose skirt, starting under the breast. In such a dress it is comfortable not only to swim, but also to walk on the beach, participate in sports, etc.

Popular colors

Black and white

Black and white swimsuit dresses remain in demand already for the fashion season in a row. Nothing sets off a beautiful tan like these two colors or their combination. If you are an adherent of classics, we advise you to purchase a bathing dress in monochrome colors.


Summer is the time when you want to endlessly please yourself with bright colors. The approaching vacation is an excellent reason to get a new swimsuit of unusual, beautiful colors. Pay attention to the spectacular bathing dresses of wine, dark blue, turquoise, peach, lavender and lemon shades.

With bright prints

Those who do not like plain clothes will surely like swimwear dresses with an original pattern. Bold and resolute girls choose a predatory animal print, romantic natures like floral and floral ornaments, travelers choose ethnic patterns, and intellectuals like abstract images.

How to choose a large bathing dress?

Dress - this is the perfect swimsuit for plump girls who feel free to expose certain parts of the body. Owners of magnificent forms should choose a bathing dress, based on the characteristics of their figure. Often the main advantage of corpulent ladies - a luxurious chest. Such wealth certainly needs to be emphasized through the bodice with a beautiful neckline.

To hide the fullness in the hips and abdomen will help a swimsuit with an A-shaped silhouette. In this model, the skirt begins under the breast and ends at mid-thigh level. Skirt - trapezoid, slightly flared. It does not fit the hips, but does not create unnecessary volume.

Tips for choosing

  • There are models of swimwear dresses, designed specifically for full girls. They have special inserts that have a corrective effect. With their help, you can "pull up" problem areas.
  • The pattern on the swimsuit can both visually spoil the figure and bring it closer to the ideal. To appear slimmer, choose a bathing dress with a vertical pattern or contrasting color side panels.
  • A swim dress with a bodice that has voluminous decorative elements will help to visually enlarge the breasts. It can be a lush bow, fringe, drapery, embroidered flowers or frills.
