As the saying goes, sun's out, buns out. The summer season is the prime time to throw on a figure-flattering swimmie, whether or not you're heading to the beach.
Though, as much as we love hubadera bikini tops and tangas, we also think that more modest bathing suits are just as stylish. They certainly have their own charm, given how less skin exposure can actually lead to more interesting resort-ready looks.
Need some convincing? Check out the 12 celebrity OOTDs we've rounded up below. They're proof that full-coverage can also mean full of character.
LOOK: 12 modest swimwear outfits, as seen on celebs
1. Monogram-Printed Maillot
A surefire way to add some flair to a swimsuit OOTD is to don a one-piece in a designer monogram print. Bea Alonzo went for this navy one from Louis Vuitton, and it definitely made her look 10 times more fresh while chilling on a yacht!
2. Long-Sleeved One-Piece Swimsuit
If you fancy participating in aquatic activities like free-diving, then a long-sleeved swimmie should certainly be in your repertoire. An athletic gal herself, our current reigning Miss Universe Philippines, Bea Gomez, totally exemplifies how the full coverage piece can still be quite the looker.
3. Bikini Top with Strappy Back Details
We all know by now that Kathryn Bernardo absolutely adores the sea. While she's admitted that a sultry one-piece is her favorite beach outfit, she's still making a strong case for bikini tops with lacy details at the back. We have to say, they really do add a lot to the look!
4. Printed Bikini + Sheer Pants
Let's say you just stepped out of the water and are in need of a quick cover-up. Kim Chiu suggests slipping into a pair of flowy sheer pants. They virtually feel like nothing when worn, but they still do the job of covering you up as needed!
5. Strapless Bikini Top + High-Waisted Bikini Bottom
A high-waisted cut on a bikini bottom does wonders for anyone's figure! Marie Lozano went for one that came with a strapless top, and capped things off with a resort-ready shoal and hat.
6. Frilly Maillot with Cut-Outs
Sofia Andres' maillot is anything but boring. Its coral pink hue and frilly details make it the perfect option for girls seeking to conceal their tummy area.
7. Tri-Color Maillot
Ruffa Gutierrez's one-piece is doing a great job of mimicking the azure tones of the sky and the sea, and of helping her look like a total bombshell. Don't hesitate to wear color (or in this case, colors) to the beach. They'll make for the best eye-catching OOTDs!
8. Knotted Bikini Top + Flowy Maxi Skirt
Nothing compares to catching a whiff of the cool breeze by the shore. Make the most out of it and twirl around in a flowy maxi skirt! Jane Oineza matched her royal blue bikini top with the dainty piece.
9. High-Waisted Bikini Bottom with Tie-Around Detail
Something as simple as a tie around your bikini bottom's hem instantly makes it more appealing than it already is. Liz Uy is totally convincing us to shop a set just like hers, especially with its fetching copper hue.
10. Maillot with Side Cut-Outs
Never doubt the power cut-outs on the sides of a maillot can make. They add heaps of interest to your 'fit and also create the illusion of a cinched-in waist. We particularly love this forest green one from Ry Velasco.
11. Cap-Sleeved Bikini Top
If you don't feel like exposing your shoulders to the sun, fret not, because cap-sleeved bikinis exist. Cebuana beauty queen Steffi Aberasturi showcases just how cute they are. Something about this fun checkered print just makes us smile as wide as she does!
12. Strapless One-Piece Swimsuit
Just the exclusion of straps in this one-piece adds a whole lot of spice to a 'fit. It shows off one's decolletage while still keeping majority of your bod covered up. Go for a ribbed black one like Sunshine Cruz for the ultimate figure-slimming look.
