As we approach the beginning of summer, it’s time to gear up for swimwear season. Water sports like surfing, snorkeling, and kayaking call for long-sleeve swimsuits but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style. There are plenty of great options with just the right amount of snug, coverage, and support. If you’re stocking up on your favorite two-pieces, tankinis, or one-piece swimsuits, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite swimsuit brands. After all, who doesn’t want to feel prepared for an impromptu beach getaway or last-minute kayaking trip, should the opportunity arise? With Memorial Day around the corner now’s the perfect time to grab a few key pieces.
We know that not everyone wants the “skin is in” look. Some of us want sun protection and a rash guard that enables us to be the surfer of our dreams while on the water. Sure, long-sleeve swimwear might not bring to mind the traditional image of an idyllic beach day. But we know how important UPF coverage (along with sunscreen) is to staying protected from long days under the sun. Long-sleeve bathing suits take that up a notch. With our suggestions for the best long-sleeve swimsuits, you’ll still be the best-dressed person by the pool or lake.
