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.

Whatever you’ll choose, a cover-up is great for vacation as you’re easy-to-slip-into 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. See all 6 styles here

What materials are cover-ups made of?

Cover-ups are cute and flattering. Materials are often soft and easy to take care of, as we like them in the 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 absorb moisture well. The fabric is breathable and makes it good for use 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.

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). See all 6 styles here
