True confessions – I haven’t worn a one piece swimsuit in 24 years, but when I saw the newly launched long torso swimsuits from Jessica Rey, I knew I had to buy one and give it a try. The Grace one-piece basically checked all the boxes for me – sustainable, ethically made, full bum coverage, cute print/details and super high quality. Yes please!
Scoring a well fitting one-piece swimsuit can often seem like literally THE HARDEST THING TO FIND for tall women which is why I’m excited to share this discovery with you! If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you know that I have another long torso swimsuit from Jessica Rey – the Marie swim dress. The swim dress isn’t officially long torso (it is just “tall friendly”) which is why I was excited to see that the brand had launched LEGIT long torso one pieces.
I’ve now worn this swimsuit several times and am ready to give you my honest review of it. Read on to hear my thoughts regarding the backside coverage, overall fit, details, and one thing I wish I could change about it.
This post is all about long torso swimsuits from Jessica Rey that every tall girl needs.

About Jessica Rey Swimwear
Jessica Rey manufactures all of its items in the U.S. and ensures that all makers of its garments are paid fair, living wages. As if that wasn’t admirable enough, all of its swimwear fabric is made from 100% regenerated materials (such as discarded fish nets). The quality of the swimsuits I own is truly superb and I can tell this swimwear will last for years!
Overall Fit of the Swimsuit
First things first…my stats. I am 6’2 and 195 lbs. I usually wear a large on the bottom and medium on top and I ordered a large in the swimsuit. I was quite nervous that the torso on the Grace long torso swimsuit wouldn’t be long enough for my 6’2 frame when first trying the swimsuit on and was thrilled when it fit perfectly without any hint of a wedgie. I have what I call “tall bum” meaning I have a rather long bum and it’s also always been substantial in size, having a tendency to peek out of swimsuits no matter what age or weight I am. I’m happy to say that the backside coverage is very full and just what I wanted…it keeps my tall, ample bum perfectly contained!
Special Details – Long Torso Swimsuits from Jessica Rey
First of all, how fun is this print with the birds and palm fronds?!? Non-tall brands often make tall apparel in safe, boring prints and colors, probably because they think these are safe bets that will sell well. While this swimsuit does come in black, I am happy that Jessica Rey also offers two beautiful prints – the one I’m wearing and this light floral print.
Another detail I love is the v-neckline and the ruffles on the top. A v-neckline is always my preferred style and the ruffles add a lovely femininity to the swimsuit. While we’re talking about the top, you should know that the straps are adjustable which allows for the perfect fit and the top also includes a supportive shelf bra with removable pads.
Is there anything I don’t like about the long torso swimsuits from Jessica Rey?
One detail I am not a huge fan of is the tie around the waist. It is much too long and gets even longer when wet. I wrap it around my waist twice to control the length. Overall, I think the tie is unnecessary and that the swimsuit would be better without it but it’s definitely not a dealbreaker.
I wore this swimsuit a lot this past summer while taking my daughter to the community pool. I felt confident and cute in it and loved that I didn’t have to worry about my buns peeking out the back. I am always excited when non-tall ethical brands decide to launch tall items and I hope Jessica Rey continues to make more long torso swimsuits! I wholeheartedly recommend this long torso swimsuit to any tall ladies looking for a cute, full coverage style.
