Great for a beach cover-up is a loose dress. Try a neutral color contrasting with a dark black bikini underneath for the net stockings type look. It’s classy and sexy at the same time. I found this cute one shipping from China I believe, for fifteen dollars. There are so many cute items for sale on Ali Express. The seller’s moniker is HongHong’s store.

If you have the patience to shop online and wait for you item’s arrival you can have some fun ordering cool beach cover ups at ridiculously low prices. I prefer the beige color of this, over white, which would stand out too much. This one is sexy but in a subtle way. Always pile on the sunscreen since even with a cover up the sun is going to get right through to the skin underneath. This is especially true if it is sheer, netted or see through material.

Dress over swimsuit



I ran across this adorable hi low beach dress on Where to Get it, and the dress is by LuLus. Now hi low dresses are something that come in and out of style on the street.  But when it comes to the beach, these dresses are always in style.  Why? Because they are a great beachy look and work well as cover ups.

Hi Low Dress

A hi low dress flatters any figure but this is particularly flattering for a petite women because the shorter front gives a lengthened look to the legs.  Coupled with a wedge heel sandal in a neutral color this style will make you look longer legged, slimmer and taller.

This soft pink color is quite feminine and beach appropriate and her floral headband is the perfect Princess Bride match to the dress.  You can find this dress for under fifty dollars at LuLus.  It is just adorable.  Note that the longer back of the dress does wonders for concealing a bottom that you don’t want on display.  This is just a great cover up look for summer that flatters the figure and mesmerizes men all at the same time.  I ran across this dress on a site called Where to Get it, at the online dress store Lulus.




Take note ladies, a trend with the young ones can work well as a flattering swimsuit cover up.  It hides flaws, and makes your body look curvy and feminine all at once.  This is the Brandy Melville one size fits all dress.  Now usually these adorably sweet dresses work only for the young ones.

Lightweight summer dresses from Brandy Melville

Backless, they are couples with cute strappy bra tops.  Now out on the street, you would only want to wear this dress if you are forever twenty one.  But at the beach, such a cute little dress can be an adorable cover up for a swimsuit.  Throw it on to walk across the pool area, or get from your hotel room to the pool.  These dresses are pool-side appropriate and hide flaws in the rump.  They are also free, easy, cotton and breezy so you will stay cool but be more covered.

Flirty cover up dress hides and flatters love handles and buttock

Try Brandy Melville for ideas.  Their dresses and clothes are one size fits all, and they will fit many.  However, if you are plus size one x or higher you may need to look for similar alternatives from plus size clothing retailers.  The concept works though.  A little loose dress thrown over your swimsuit not only looks great, but hides common flaws on the real end, and love handles. 

Love Brandy Melville! Their clothes are designed to fit girls of all body shapes and are quite flattering and stylish. Very popular with the teens and young ladies in recent years.
