Plus size women, women with figure flaws, a little extra junk in the trunk and other reasons to cover up either arms or the rear of the body take note. Kimonos look great as cover ups and can slenderize and disappear a plethora of figure flaws.

This romantic cardigan is perfect for the summer. It is feminine, light weight and folds up into small space so you can take it to your beach trip! The one the model is wearing is in sheer white color.

For a great swimsuit slender look, cover up in a kimono. The loose fit covers the rear of the body as well as bigger arms. Kimono sleeves can cover a broad shoulder. Kimonos work great as a beach cover up. It is easy to find one that fits you. Slits on the sides add a sexy touch that flatters the figure. This kimono is a pre-washed, 100% polyester sheer chiffon Georgette. If you are picky about materials never fear as there are plenty of kimonos available even in pure cotton.

I found this kimono on Etsy at a store called vivatveritas7. There was only one available but if you check Etsy you can find so many pretty kimonos from sheer to patterned and floral with fringes. It’s a great cover up and can drop the weight off you not to mention make you feel less self-conscious in a swimsuit.

I love this Maaji port breeze kimono coverup!  Look slender and in style this coming swimsuit season with this dazzling Maaji coverup.  This coverup is featured in their new swimsuit collection for 2014 called Chimeric Wayfarer.  This collection is fantastic and no surprise because Maaji always has the best!

Kimono coverup

This Maaji port breeze kimono cover-up is the perfect accessory for wearing over your bikini or one piece swimsuit.  Wear at the beach or pool side, or in the early eventing to the jacuzzi.  When you get up and walk across the pool or beach area for refreshments you will feel sexy and comfortable with this coverup thrown over your swimsuit.  You won’t have to feel like you are on the walk of shame with everything showing.

The breeze fabric is sheer, feminine and sexy.  You will stay cool as it is a lightweight mesh.  It has an electric sweetheart waist and of course the fun and frolic mix of prints that is signature Maaji.  It has a contrast print and tie at the waist.

Round out a flat bottom

This coverup illustrates a nice trick for the woman who has a flat looking bottom.  The tie at the waist and flirty skirt fabric gives the rear end a rounding effect.  Some older women are slender but they aren’t as round, bouncy and filled out as their younger counterparts.  For a flat bottom or some loose skin a coverup like this is perfect.  The little mini skirt effect in back coupled with the tie at the waist gives shape and bounce to your bottom. 

This coverup can work equally well for the slender or plus size women. It’s a definite win for any figure type.  Love Maaji! This coverup can be purchased at Sundance Beach swimwear store online and is also available at other stores that carry Maaji such as Butter Flies and Bikinis, Kayokoko Swimwear, Swimwear World, Jewel be Mine, Bikinis Online and more.




Are you looking for a sexy coverup?  I love the idea shown here by this pretty lady.  She is wearing a kimono and it doubles as her swimsuit coverup.  I love this.  This is perfect for a plus size woman who feels huge in her bikini.  It’s the perfect slim down accessory. 

Sheer feminine kimono

What separates this look from the moo-moo of yesteryear is that the fabric is lightweight and sheer, but still gives the visual slim down effect and covers a larger woman’s body perfectly!  She does not look like she is trying to hide everything but rather just looks soft and adorable.

You can find kimonos anywhere including online and also at various vintage stores.  Another piece that works just as well is a silky short robe that is actually lingerie. If you get a lingerie open robe in a soft light weight material it will work similar to the kimono.

This particular sheer kimono cover up has the sash tie so it can be worn open in front or tied. It also as you notice has draped sleeves which can conceal large arms and/or a hefty upper body and shoulder area.  I just love this look and it really can make a larger, boxy or plus size figure look more feminine and voluptuous. 

This particular swimsuit coverup was listing on Overstock.  If you search for kimonos you should be able to find some cute coverup options such as this kimono shown here.
