Made for riding waves, chasing kids, and relaxing on the beach, our swim skirts and swim skirt cover-ups give us the coverage we want in all the right places. Whether we’re throwing it on over our swimsuit or grabbing it instead of a bikini bottom
, Title Nine swim skirts for women are built to last, made to move, and keep us comfortably covered.
What are swim skirts for?
When we need a little more coverage than our swimsuits are giving us, we reach for a swim skirt. These bottoms are built to keep women comfortably covered both in and out of the water. Swim skirts are made with resilient, fast-drying performance-blend fabrics and UPF 50 protection—often the same fabric the rest of your other swimwear is made from. Choose a swim skirt with built-in briefs as a perfectly matched bottom for any of our bikini or tankini tops
. Or, choose a skirt-only option to throw over a bikini or boyshort bottom, or add a little extra coverage to your favorite one piece swimwear
Can you swim in a swim skirt or cover-up?
Swim skirts and skirt cover-ups serve slightly different purposes, so before you hit the beach or pool, it’s a good idea to think about what you need your skirt to do.
- Plan on getting wet? Choose a skirt made from the same fabric as your suit. Fast-drying performance-blend swim fabric like SurFlexTM means your swim skirt will keep up with anything a regular swimsuit can do. Add on an elasticized waistband, stash pockets, and built-in briefs and your swim skirt is the must-have piece of any swimsuit.
- Sticking to the beach? If you’re wearing your swimskirt as a beach cover up or poolside cover-up, you’ve got free reign on fabrics and styles—from wrap-style skirts to pull-on skorts with a side-slit. It’s still a good idea to choose a breathable, comfortable fabric with UPF 50 protection for your cover-up to keep you cool and dry while you're having fun in the sun. Check out our skirts
for women to grab a swim skirt cover-up that works for you.
Are swim skirts similar to swim shorts?
They can be! Swim skirts vary from one-and-done skirts with built-in bikini bottoms (think swim skort) to swim-ready skirts that can be paired with a bikini bottom or swim shorts
for ultimate coverage.
