The Best Beach Coverups for Summer 2024


Swim coverups offer skin protection from the sun, are great for temperature changes, coming and going from the water, and carrying you through the day for shopping, dining and walking through town.

For many of my clients, swimwear is a massive pain point.
That’s why when you’re considering what to wear to the beach, pool or resort, it’s not just about your swimsuit – you need to consider the whole look!
If you’re hesitant about swimsuits, having a body-flattering coverup with shoes, a hat, bag and accessories to match is just the thing to keep you feeling confident and pulled together. Different kinds of coverups can highlight and camouflage different parts of your body to enhance what you love!

-Have a small waist, but want to hide your thighs and tush? Pear shapes will love pairing a sarong with their swimsuit.

-Apple shapes look fabulous in mini kaftans and tunics; which highlight their legs and de-emphasize their middles.

Taking the extra step to invest in a great swim outfit reduces that all-too-familiar anxiety surrounding swimsuits and can return the excitement back into vacations and outings that are supposed to be fun!
