The point of being by the pool, lake or beach is to soak up the sun with sunscreen, relax under an umbrella, or swim. In these instances, you’ll wear your swimsuit cover-up. Some women like to wear a swimsuit cover-up for reasons of modesty, or because they do not want to attract attention at the beach; many women are shy in public about areas of their body which are normally concealed, such as the stomach and upper thighs. Others may use cover-up which tend to reveal more than they conceal. It is also not uncommon to view cover-up as practicalities, rather than fashion statements, using a swimsuit cover-up to warm up after a swim or to reduce exposure to the sun, and allow swimmers to transition from the beach to the streets or a casual restaurant with ease. Swimsuit cover-ups are sold by most companies which make swimsuits, and they are often readily available in beach towns.
If you love going to beaches, you may want to own a beautiful swimsuit cover-up, but you may already have found out that a great one fitting your style is one of the hardest things to find in stores. Now you won’t have to settle for the boring styles you can buy because you can whip one of these beauties up in minutes. Seriously, some are no sew cover-ups! That’s right!
