At Lime Ricki, we offer a wide variety of modest and fashionable swimwear for our customers to choose from. One of our newest pieces is the swim dress, which is a stylish minidress silhouette that offers additional coverage over your thighs! In this post, we’re offering an in-depth review of our swim dress, focusing on the design, material, and performance of the suit so you’ll be able to decide if it’s the right choice for you.

Design: Supportive and Flattering
Lime Ricki swim dresses offer a unique two-in-one look that’s perfect for wearing in and out of the water. On the outside, you’ll first notice the dress, which features adjustable straps for easy customization. Underneath, you’ll find a one-piece bathing suit complete with built-in bust support, including a double-lined shelf bra and sewn-in foam cups (except for size XXS, which has no padding). Our swim dresses are available in an inclusive range of sizes XXS to 4X and are flattering on all body types. Lime Ricki swim dresses were designed with your comfort in mind, but they still offer plenty of support and coverage as well. Beyond having a supportive design, our swim dresses are available in a variety of colors and patterns. Bold patterns such as Garden Party and Claus are perfect for making a statement, but if bright colors aren’t your thing, you can find the same dress in Black, for a neutral look.

Material: Comfortable and Protective
The Lime Ricki swim dress is made of 80% nylon and 20% spandex, so it’s super comfortable, making it perfect for a variety of activities. The nylon and spandex combination also allows the suit to maintain its original shape after each use/wash. These suits are designed with UV 50+ protection in the fabric, so you can stay safe while enjoying a day soaking up the sunshine. No more worrying about getting burnt through your suit! Lime Ricki swimsuits feature fabrics designed to protect against SPF damage, so you don’t have to worry about your suit becoming discolored from your sunscreen. There’s nothing worse than having your favorite swimsuit get ruined by a sunscreen stain, so we make sure all of our suits are protected from the beginning.

Performance: Versatile and Swim-Approved
The best thing about these swim dresses is that they can be worn just about anywhere! The dress design offers plenty of coverage, so you can wear it straight from the beach to dinner without worrying about changing outfits or finding a cover-up. Need to pop into the store before hitting the pool? Swim dresses are perfect for running errands! Having this kind of versatility in a piece can be extremely helpful, especially when the weather gets so warm that you can hardly stand being out of the water. Swim dresses let you go about your day without worrying about what you’re wearing. Plus, they’re so comfortable, you won’t want to take them off!

Even though swim dresses provide more coverage than a traditional two-piece suit, you won’t feel held back or restricted in them. In fact, you might actually appreciate the extra support the dress has to offer! The combination of nylon and spandex provides just the right amount of support and flexibility, so you can continue to participate in your favorite activities, both in and out of the water. We really love this piece, and we think you will, too!

Q: Can I wear a swim dress as a regular dress?
A: YES! Wear your Lime Ricki swim dress just like you would a regular dress. You can change up your look with accessories and feel comfortable all day (and night!), that's part of what we love about our swim dresses.

Q: Do you wear anything under your swim dress?
A: No. The swim dress has swim shorts underneath the skirt bottom and you should not wear underwear under your swimsuit.
