How to choose the perfect swim cover up

Updated: Jun 24, 2023

Swimsuit cover ups are a staple for women who want to feel confident and look great poolside.  We typically think of coverage and style when deciding on a cover up. However, comfort and price are some other factors that you may want to consider. We have put together this guide to help you choose the best cover up to transition you from water to whatever you have planned next!

Coverage: More or less?

A Caftan can feel like you are wrapped up in a just “out of the dryer” towel for a cozy lounge feel and provide more coverage than the other designs on our list.  Bold patterns, fringe or tassels make your caftan choice fun and flattering on any body type.

For a less coverage option, choose a sarong that keeps your coordinating swimsuit on display! Don’t be afraid to choose a bold pattern or bright color!  Sarongs are easy to pack and are generally one size plus they can be worn many different ways!


Equally as much of a fashion statement as your swimsuit, a stylish cover up, like crochet beach pants, can make you more confident, sexy and stylish!  Few designs offer as much wow factor as a bold pair of pants.  Prints, crochet, or a light linen pant are easy to pair with just about any swimsuit!


A classic cover up that is lightweight, breathable, easily removed and can be worn open for showing off your suit or closed for full coverage is a multi use button down linen shirt.  For a minimalist look choose a solid linen or be bold and choose a gauzy stripe or print button down!


Whether you are shopping for a swanky resort stay or a “back to school” end of summer family trip, there is a wide range of price points for cover ups. The price of most clothing items is determined by quality of fabric and stitching, and fit style (or amount of fabric).  It is possible to get a quality cover up for a reasonable price but choosing a mid priced to higher item will ensure durability from fading and damage for years. You will look and feel better in a quality cover up!

We hope this guide helps you choose the perfect cover up next time you are shopping for your vacation or pool side party! Check out our inventory of cover ups, swimsuits plus more online or instore!
