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.




Ran across a very cute retro swimwear boutique called Popina Swimear. Popina’s offerings include modest bathing suits, vintage inspired 1950’s swimsuits, one-piece bathing suits, retro bikini swimsuit tops, retro tankini swimsuits and flattering boy short bathing suit bottoms.

Vintage swimsuit red one piece

This classic red swimsuit is way more conservative than the classic Bay Watch swimsuit worn by Pamela Anderson, but surprisingly sexy just like that classic one piece. The cute top looks flattering on a flat chest or larger chest alike, and the leg line is conservative. The all one color is slenderizing, but the bright red and V-neck make it incredibly sexy but not overly revealing. This looks great with her paler, sun safe skin and the touch of red lipstick coupled with fairly natural looking makeup. Very, very cute. This is the type of swimsuit where, even if you are wearing it next to girls in itty-bitty micro bikinis, you will nevertheless stand out as the move star.

Popina Swimwear is a woman owned, designer swimwear line based in Portland, Oregon. Their quaint swimsuit selection proves you don’t have to show it all to be Sexy. The items are tasteful, vintage 1950’s inspired woman’s swimsuit lines. Popina swimsuits are made in the USA, and include designs which are fun, flattering and fashionable. A love red swimsuit that draws retro swimwear inspiration from vintage swimsuits of the past. Check out Popina Swimwear for more vintage swimsuit styles. Lovely!

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.
