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.

If you are looking for a casual cover-up for a lazy day at the beach try this look.  It’s a swimsuit cover-up shirt.  This looks like your boyfriends shirt thrown over the swimsuit and the look is actually hot!  Many polls show that men love a woman who is wearing a plain white shirt or their man’s shirt.  Now Newport News came out with a swimsuit cover-up shirt that personifies this beachy girlfriend look.

Casual white dress shirt as a beach cover-up

It looks casual and natural.  Of course Marisa Miller can look good in a burlap sack but this cover up idea is pretty cute.  For one thing, it looks casual and natural, perfect for a lazy day at the beach.  For another, it successfully hides the entire rear view and also larger hips or thunder thighs.  Very slenderizing.  Lastly, this shirt is great when you need protection from the sun.  It covers the arms and entire body.  Cute idea. 

I found this cover-up shirt from Newport News. It must be a good seller because it was sold out!  If you can’t find it in-store just ask your boyfriend or best friend to borrow one of their old dress-shirts, or purchase a man’s white shirt all cotton at a store like Macy’s or JC Penny.  Newport News always has great beachwear merchandise, especially for the real woman who needs a more modest figure flattering cut.

Are you trying to cover up a large buttock or other swimsuit flaw?  Do you know that self-conscious feeling when you have to get up in that bikini or swimsuit and make your way over to the food stand to get a beverage?  It’s one thing to look good when you are lying down flat on your back in the lounge chair with everything carefully adjusted.  It’s another thing to wear just the swimsuit for that diet coke walk.  Everyone stares because that’s what they do at the pool is people watch.

Here ladies, is where the perfect swimsuit cover up comes in handy.  Gone are the days of the cover-up that matched that bikini in a skimpy cheesy neon flimsy nylon fabric.  You’ve got to get more original and show your own sense of style.  You’d be amazed at what you’ll come up with.  The good news is that this is where those slinky sheer tops look appropriate.  They can be thrown over the swimsuit for a pool or beach cover up. 

If you’re at an outdoor rock festival you’re going to want something casual and low-key such as a crochet cover up, jean shorts or your boyfriends button down.  But if you’re in Vegas or at the luxury resort hotel in Beverly Hills, you can get a little more fancy and creative with that swimsuit cover up.  Try a sexy robe or lacy open shirt, sweater, shawl, scarf or robe.

I found this charmeuse robe on the site Womens Swimear Bikinis.  It’s a really cool pick and makes a totally hot swimsuit throw over.  This robe has a plunging lace back and comes in black.  You can throw a little number like this on over your swimsuit and it will make the biggest of derrierires or wide thighs look cute.  Seriously will!
