Long-sleeve Swimsuits Are Having Their Most Stylish Season Yet
Our favorite travel gear is often as chic as it is functional, and swimwear is no exception.
Whether you're seeking skin protection from strong UV rays or a suit that can stand in as an outfit on quick weekend trips — or perhaps you identify more with "full coverage" than "string bikini" when it comes to swimwear in general — a long-sleeve swimsuit covers all the bases.
However, until the past few years, the sleeved swim market was mainly limited to thick neoprene styles and simplistic silhouettes. Not anymore. With bold, artistic prints and fun accents like bell sleeves and buttons, designers are dressing up long-sleeve bikinis, one-pieces, and rash guards.
Here are thirteen styles we love from some of the best go-to brands for long-sleeve swimsuits.
