Swimsuit Features to Look For

Power mesh, boning, and removable padding — oh my! When it comes to the quest for your ideal swimsuit, there are a bevy of features touted on tags and in descriptions. But what do they all mean for you?

Here, we break down a few noteworthy aspects of four High-Dive by ModCloth swimsuits — with the help of gorgeous illustrations by ModCloth’s Assistant Designer Jackie Lee — and help suss out what to be on the lookout for in your perfect suit!

Swim 1

The Set the Serene One-Piece Swimsuit in Watercolor will fit ‘n’ flatter a variety of shapes and silhouettes! Its high back offers additional sun protection, while the removable pads in the cups can provide an extra bust boost, if you so please. Last, but not least, boning — which is comprised of stiff strips that hold the top up and in place — at both sides mean you can wear it strapless with no fear of slippage!


Our Be Pacific One-Piece Swimsuit in Palms is a fab style available exclusively in sizes 1X-4X! Super-chic palm print aside, this suit has some standout features that set it apart from the crowd, including an adjustable power mesh layer that helps create a smooth silhouette, a higher back for extra sun protection, and both a halter strap and standard shoulder straps. This one’s a must-try for for bustier gals who prefer shoulder straps, but want the flexibility of changing things up — you can even wear both the halter and shoulder straps for a look that’s both supportive and unique!

Swim 3

The pretty palette used in the print of the Seaside Splendor One-Piece Swimsuit is eye-catchingly unexpected, and will flatter just about anyone! But that’s not all — this suit is fully lined, so you never have to worry about a ‘surprise sheer moment’ after hitting the waves. Plus, its halter straps make for an adjustable fit, and the unique cut is perfect for those who want a look that’s both modern and subtly sexy!

Swim 41

Another palm-print stunner, the Need I Say Shore One-Piece Swimsuit is an awesome option for petite and smaller-busted beauties. Its optional adjustable straps mean you can keep ’em on for support or take ’em off and rock it strapless, and removable padding in the bust cups provides extra asset enhancement. This one’s also fully lined and has a high back for superior sun protection, making for a sophisticated stunner that’ll stand out from the crowd.
