       Sometimes even the perfect swimsuit needs a little extra coverage. That’s where bathing suit covers come in! For those who like to cover up a bit while lounging at the pool or soaking up the sun on the beach, a good solid cover-up is a necessity.

      What Are Bathing Suit Covers?

      A quality bathing suit cover does two things. One, it offers the wearer a little extra coverage while relaxing or walking the beach; and two, it provides the wearer with lightweight protection from wind, cold, and sun. 

      Bathing suit covers are made from a variety of materials, but they are always lightweight, easy to pack in a suitcase, and flowy enough to be comfortable. Bathing suit covers are often made of cotton, polyester, spandex, or a blend of these materials. They are usually sheer enough to wear on a hot day, but opaque enough to protect. 

      What To Look for in a Bathing Suit Cover

      The main things that you want to look for in a bathing suit cover are the level of coverage and the material. Some people like the look of a long, flowy, dress-like beach coverup. Others prefer a shorter, more sleek style. Likewise, some covers are long-sleeved, while others are short-sleeved or even tank top style.

      In terms of material, it is common to find coverups in gauzy, cotton-based fabric. You want to make sure that the coverup you choose is something that you feel comfortable in. That usually means a soft yet water-wicking material. 

      Of course, it doesn’t hurt if the bathing suit cover comes in your favorite color or your favorite print!

      Where To Wear Bath Suit Covers

      Ultimately, a bathing suit cover can be worn anywhere you will be wearing your swimsuit, but want the opportunity to cover up at a moment’s notice. People who are active, seeking SPF protection, or simply trying to stay cozy on a cooler summer day will appreciate a good coverup.
