Swimsuit cover-ups come in numerous shapes and sizes and the type used can vary depending on whether the wrap or cover-up will be worn over a wet swimsuit fresh out of the pool or over a suit after a period spent tanning or playing on the beach. This article contains five fun options.
Swimsuit Cover-Up: The Apple Bottoms Kafkan Dress
A Kafkan is a great option for arriving at the beach or a pool party in. The openness of a quality Kafkan means it can be put on and removed with relative ease. The sunrise kafkan from Apple Bottoms is $39 and offers a great option for swim wear cover-ups for a variety of body types. The waist tucks in nicely, the v-neck can show off a fun swimsuit while the skirt bottom shows plenty of leg without being too short.
Swimsuit Cover-Up: The Women’s Sheer Purple Sarong (Indonesia)
If you are going to be at a beach or pool party where dancing will be a large part of the occasion then a fun sarong can set the mood. Look for a fun wrap for the hips that contains a fun element of fringe with lots of detail to shimmy when you shimmy. A good wrap should cost no more than $25 unless you are looking for a designer brand.
Swimsuit Cover-Up: A Reptile Skin Sarong
