Look, we get it: bikinis aren't for everyone. While celebs like Hailey Bieber and Kendall Jenner are famous for showing off their barely-there bikinis, skimpy swimwear is far from the only option for beach-goers this spring and summer.

Whether you'd prefer a high neckline, longer sleeves, or keeping your cheeks off display, shopping for cute swimwear doesn't have to mean showing more skin than you're comfortable with.

From plus-size swim dresses and one-piece swimsuits to athletic board shorts and rash guards, scroll down to shop the 22 best modest and full-coverage swimsuits for every shape, size and style in 2022.
