Cover-ups have that effortless casual feel. Just what you need on the beach and beyond.


Different styles swimwear cover-ups

Many cover-ups have lengths above the knee. Great for any plus size woman as cover-ups are very flattering for all body types. Roomy fur sure goes hand in hand with fashionable style here.

And yes, they are usually very affordable.

There are many cover-up styles to choose from.

  • ultra short
  • above knee length
  • with sleeves or without
  • sexy lace
  • kimono styles, longer lengths

Whatever you’ll choose, a cover-up is great for vacation as your easy to slip in dress. Being on the beach, pool or where ever you go.

In fact, you might very well get away with it using it as a dress.

A cover-up is easy to dress up with sandals, a cami, a tank, a belt, or a jacket. Give it your own touch by just simply adding something in the style you want.

What materials are cover-ups made of?

Cover-ups are cute and flattering on your vacation. Materials are often soft and easy to take care of, as we like in summertime.

Materials you’ll find are:

1. Rayon

Rayon is also named viscose. It is a semi-synthetic fabric obtained from wood pulp or cotton.

Cover-ups that are made of rayon are soft and absorpe moisture well. The fabric is breathable and makes it good for using on summer clothing.

If not mixed with polyester it wrinkles easily

2. Linen

I just love the natural and elegant look of linen. It is a strong and breathable material.

On a cover-up it is used on more classic styles, like a button-down shirt. See all 10 styles here

3. Cotton

Cotton is great, I like it in all my clothes. This natural fabric is of course great for cover-ups. It is less light than polyester and will dry less quickly.

4. Polyester

We all know polyester as a synthetic fabric. It is not very breathable.

But the lightweight fabric is popular even so. Because it is stretchy and holds its shape very well. Polyester is often mixed with other materials (to get the best of both worlds).
