High Neck Swimwear

So we’ve put together some of our favourite high neck swimwear pieces for you to browse through and also some tips on why and how you should wear this fashion-forward swimwear style.


High neck swimwear gives the wearer a certain air of elegance and sophistication that is unmatched by other swimwear styles. The high neckline provides a more refined and chic look, making it an ideal choice for those who want to stand out on the beach or by the pool. Whether you're sipping cocktails at a beachside resort or lounging with friends at a pool party, high-neck swimwear can elevate your style game effortlessly.

Enhanced Coverage

One of the most significant advantages of high neck swimwear is that it offers additional coverage when compared with traditional style swimsuits and certainly bikinis. If you're someone who values sun protection or wants to feel more comfortable and modest, this swimwear style is perfect for you. The high neckline provides more coverage for your chest, neck, and even certain styles, your shoulders, reducing your exposure to harmful UV rays. It's an excellent choice for those who prioritise sun safety while enjoying their time in the water.

High Neck Swimwear


High neck swimwear is incredibly versatile and can be worn in various settings. Whether you're engaging in water sports, swimming laps, or simply relaxing on the beach, high neck swimwear is up to the task. It provides the support and coverage needed for active pursuits while still being stylish enough for leisurely beach outings.

Inclusive and Flattering

One of the remarkable features of high neck swimwear is its ability to flatter a wide range of body types. The higher neckline can create an illusion of longer and leaner lines, making it an excellent choice for both petite and curvier individuals. Additionally, the extra coverage around the chest area can provide extra support and comfort, making high neck swimwear a favourite among women of all body shapes and sizes. Our high neck swimwear is also size-inclusive, so you should be able to find a swimsuit that will fit you perfectly.

No Sacrifice on Style

While high neck swimwear is known for its functionality, it’s also one of the most on-trend swimwear looks out there. We’ve put together our high neck collection based on feedback from our customers. We offer several beautiful high neck bathing suit colour options. This helps to ensure that you can express your style while enjoying this swimwear style.

Minimal Wardrobe Malfunctions

Anyone who has ever experienced a wardrobe malfunction at the beach or pool knows how embarrassing it can be. High neck swimwear provides extra security and peace of mind, as it's less prone to accidental slips or shifting when you're active in the water. You can swim, jump, and play with confidence, knowing that your swimwear will stay in place. Perfect for swimming pool games, beach volleyball or anything else you are planning to do.

Perfect for Water Sports

If you're into water sports like surfing, paddleboarding, or snorkelling, high-neck swimwear is an excellent choice. Its secure fit and extra coverage ensures that you can enjoy your activities without constantly adjusting your swimsuit. Plus, the high neckline protects your chest and neck from chafing caused by the sun, salt water, or friction from sports equipment.

Ideal for Layering

High neck swimwear isn't limited to the beach or poolside. It's also a fantastic option for creating stylish layered looks. You can pair it with shorts, skirts, or cover-ups to transition seamlessly from the beach to a beachside cafe. This versatility makes high neck swimwear a great choice for travellers who want to pack light while having multiple outfit options.

Reduced Tan Lines

While some people love getting a sun-kissed tan, others prefer to keep their skin protected from excessive sun exposure. High neck swimwear helps with this by minimising tan lines on the chest and neck area. This means you can enjoy your time in the sun without worrying about uneven tan lines that can be challenging to hide in other swimwear styles.

Confidence Boost

Last but not least, wearing high neck swimwear can boost your confidence. Knowing that you're both stylish and well-protected can make you feel more comfortable and self-assured while enjoying your time in or by the water.
