Looking to cover up a little bit for your summer adventures? In addition to our fave Amazon swimsuit cover-ups, our team tried on swim skirts, swim leggings, and board shorts from Amazon! Here are our honest thoughts and how they really made us feel.
1. Michelle’s swim shorts
Kanu Surf Women’s UPF 50+ Active Swim Board Shorts – $16.83- $23.80
Not only is Michelle totally rocking this pair of swim shorts, but these shorts are available in a wide variety of colors and prints! Plus, these shorts are available in regular and plus sizes, and select styles are available for Amazon Prime Wardrobe, which means you can try them before you pay! Read more about how it works here.
Here’s what Michelle had to say about her Amazon swim shorts:
“These shorts are great for covering up a bit in situations when you are in and out of the water and don’t want to just hang out in your suit. I’ll be wearing these to the water park and for camping days when I’m hanging out by the water and want to be comfortable.”
2. Emily’s swim leggings
Ubestyle UPF 50+ High Waist Women’s Swim Surfing Leggings – $27.99
Whether you’re planning to hit the waves for some surfing or heading to yoga class, these swim leggings are multi-functional. Plus, there are ten colors to choose from!
Here’s what Emily had to say about her swim leggings:
“I was really pleasantly surprised by these swim leggings! They’re very lightweight, but not sheer which I was worried about. I do recommend wearing neutrals underneath rather than dark colors so you definitely don’t risk showing off any undergarments. I love that they provide SPF protection without feeling overly warm in the sun. To be honest, I see myself wearing them more for working out as they kept me super cool and sweat-free while teaching a barre class. Plus, the high waist is everything!”
3. Collin’s swim skirt & shorts
GRAPENT Women’s High-Waist Swim Skirt – $9.99 – $21.99
If you’re looking to dress up your swim attire a little bit, you’ll be looking fabulous and totally comfy in this high-waisted swim skirt! It also comes in three different styles and many different neutral colors, so it’ll go with just about any swim outfit you wear this summer.
Actloe Women’s Board Shorts – $19.99
Collin also tried out these casual swim shorts. If you’re looking for an easy way to cover up when hitting the beach or pool, these are going to be your go-to shorts.
Here’s what Collin had to say about her swim attire:
“You guys! This swim skirt AND these swim shorts are AWESOME! If you’re like me and like to be more covered up when hanging out at the beach or pool, then you’ve got to order these. I was so excited when these arrived in the mail and even more excited when I tried them on. They fit so well and are long enough to keep me feeling comfortable when I’m having fun outdoors. I love that I’m not feeling self-conscious and I can actually enjoy myself and not be constantly trying to cover up with a towel.
Oh, and I’ve had that tankini top for years, and it works so well with both of these bottoms. It’s actually from Walmart! Although you may not be able to find this exact style anymore, they sell swimwear that’s both comfortable and flattering every year.
4. Jill’s swim skirt
Seagoo Women’s Swim Skirt $18.35-$21.99
Give your swim attire a frilly, feminine flair with this chic swim skirt! Plus, it’s available in nine different colors!
Here’s what Jill had to say about her swim skirt:
“This swim skirt is SO cute! I normally wear regular bikini bottoms but thought I’d try something different and with a little more coverage. This skirt is a great length. Not too short and long enough to cover my assets. This skirt runs true to size in my opinion, and the color will complement any bikini or tankini top!”
5. Erica’s swim skirt
REKITA Women’s Swim Skirt $13.99-$19.99
This swim skirt comes in 10 different styles and colors to go with any swimwear you’ll be rocking at the pool. You can also pair it with a tank top and sandals to head to the boardwalk.
Here’s what Erica had to say about her Amazon swim skirt:
“This skirt is so fun!! I am so happy I went with a fun, bright color for summer! It’s really comfortable, true to size, and I love how it is the perfect amount of ‘high-waisted’ so I feel totally confident wearing it. It’s the perfect swim skirt to pair with a swim top or any shirt, really!”

Thank you so much for this post. It’s refreshing to see others who want to cover a little more in the pool too. Such cute options!
You’re very welcome, Lori! SO glad you found this list helpful! 🙌
I know right. Took my kids kayaking and some lady was in a string bikini. What was she thinking?!?! I’m guessing she isn’t the type to wear masks lol. The mask would have covered more than the entire swim suit.
YAY for women’s board shorts!! I used to buy the guys board shorts & cut out the ‘underwear’ in them to wear over my swimsuit. Thanks ladies for the post!
I was super impressed with these! They are lightweight and a great option!
This came just in time, going to a water park this weekend, and definitely could use more cover up! Thank you!
How exciting! You’re very welcome, Noral-Lee! These would be great options for a water park! Hope you have a wonderful time!
I’m not in need of any new swim attire right now, but I like Colin’s swim skirt so much that I just might buy it anyway! You ladies all look fabulous, yet again!
Aww, Thanks a ton for the kind comment, Amy! Hope you love it as much as I do if you decide to grab it!
Ahh man. Finding a pair of fitting board shorts is a nightmare. I have a small waist but huge hips. I don’t mind Bermuda length but everything in women’s seems to be bum cheek-showing length. Might have to try theses. Thanks for posting
You’re very welcome, Karen!
Swim leggings? Is that a thing? 🤣
I was just as surprised as you Abby! I think they’re great for activities surrounding water sports as attire that has full coverage and are comfortable to swim in. Even just lounging poolside for additional sun protection. I actually love them just as lightweight workout leggings too!
Love swim leggings and scuba pants in my deep water class when the pool is cold I have to kep my core, hands and feet warm due to medical issues.
I discovered swim skirts two summers ago and there is no going back!
Do you wear them actually swim in them or just for poolside/cover-up? I’ve always worn boardshorts in and out and am curious about the skirts…
I don’t know about this particular swim skirt but I have one from Lands End that I love. It’s all sewn together. So, I can’t take it off go swim.
swim leggings are awesome not only for modesty but also for sun protection. No more burned bum cheeks and knees. I love mine.
This is what I wear and I feel more comfortable versus wearing pretty much underwear.
Any girls deals? When we were at the beach this summer, my 7 year old’s little bum got so burnt everyday, even with my reapplying straight to her butt multiple times. I tried looking in multiple beach stores for a pair of board shorts or a skirt for a girl, and there was NOTHING! They make two piece suits that have the little teeny tiny shorts, but those are just like underwear and barely cover and extra skin on the bottom/under her butt. I couldn’t believe I couldn’t find even one pair of board shorts or a longer skirt for girls at that many beachwear stores.
Check out land’s end!
Oh bummer! SO sorry to hear about that! Maybe try checking over at Lands End!
You may be able to grab a Rash Guard, Skirted One Piece, Swim Skirt or Swim Shorts.
Hope that helps!
Hi Kaylynn! Check out the website Modli that’s where I buy my girls swim clothes. They have adorable swim skirts with built in leggings for modesty
Where is Erica’s bikini top from? I love it!
Hey there Jen! Thank you! I got it from Bealls Florida a couple years ago! They have great tops – you can also shop on Bealls.com!
If Colin and team wanted to do a related post, I would LOVE to be able to find a bikini swim bottom that has full rear coverage and doesn’t ride up!! Everything I’ve tried seems to be either very “cheeky” or similar to the above options which are fine, just not what I’m looking for.
Thanks for the suggestion, Sarah! I’ll pass this along to the team!
Try lands end. Theirs tend to be cut wider to cover more.
Thanks for the tip, Lily!
Yes!! I hate the “cheeky” style! Who wants to show half their butt? And they end up being a thong, so…yeah. Full coverage, please!
Hi Sarah! Try Modli! They have great more modest swim options
so much to look at! Can you tell me if any of the swim skirts are $10 or under?
Hi Sara! The GRAPENT Women’s High-Waist Swim Skirt above, starts at $9.99. Hope that helps
This is super helpful! I have a sun allergy and get a nasty rash from the sun 😖. I’ve never seen swim leggings- totally ordering a pair!
Yay! So glad we could help, LRJ!
Let me know how they work out for you, LRJ! I’m loving mine!
Ahh darn we just returned from four days at Great Wolf Lodge Mason. Would of totally rocked some of these, so cute!!
If you like swim leggings but want more cover check out Land’s end. They sell skirted swim leggings and they are really comfortable.
Agree… I own 2 pairs and love them. My family swims almost every day of the week in the summer and swim leggings from Lands End or Amazon really help protect me and my daughters from too much sun.
Oh cool! Thanks a bunch for the helpful suggestion!
I had never heard of swim leggings before, it is not something I need but that is interesting. I ordered a swim skirt and another suit amazon ended up recommending. Thank you for a clever and timely post.
You’re very welcome, Sallys! Hope you love your swim skirt and suit!
My daughter just wears a pair of yoga/stretchy pants (not cotton)over her swimsuit.
Though not rated for sun protection, on the day we all got burned, she only sunburned her hands and feet. The only parts exposed since she was fully dressed with a long sleeve sun shirt and the pants.
I have lucked out this year, the few pools that are open are impossible to get on the reservation list. So we have been playing _in the river and sprinklers. No real suit needed!! An old tshirt & sports shorts. But the leggings, might grab a pair of thoes!!
Can you provide the link of where can I purchase the cute swim top that Erica is wearing with the adorable REKITA swim skirt?
