Tunic Cover Ups Swimwear – Fashioning on the Beach

Tunic cover ups swimwear is making their move and rapidly conquering the title of an element of high-fashion. Tunic refers to a loose top ending somewhere in between the top of the thighs and knees. It can be made of many different materials but the most popular ones are lightweight fabrics, such as mesh, lace, cotton or chiffon. Sheer tunics are actually quite favourite due to their ability to create sensuous look for any type of bathing suit.

The design of tunic is very different from style to style so it is a perfect tool for hiding any flaws of upper part of your body you would like to hide. Choose a tunic with mid-length or long sleeves to conceal flabby arms, go for a longer tunic to shelter problem areas at your hips or wear empire style tunic to visually elongate your body.

Pair your tunic with sunglasses, big straw hat and sexy sandals for hot look. This will definitely add up to your sensual appeal and drive a lot of eyes into your direction.

    Thank you for providing so much information on all the different kinds of cover-up options. I agree that a sarong is perfect for an hour-glass figure, but I find it also adds curves to a woman with straighter hips. Also, not only do I like wearing tunics as a cover-up at the beach, but I like to wear them over jeans when going out! Thanks again,

    • Hey Kikij

      Thank you for your comment. I also prefer wearing tunics not only as a cover up but also as a casual outfit for my daily activities. But to do that a suitable tunic cover up should be found – you can have a look at our collection of tunic cover ups – link is in the article, but for your comfort I am adding it once more 🙂

    What I great informative article on coverups. I own a few sarongs and never knew that there were so many ways to wear them, I always just tie it around my body. Thanks to your video now I can experiment more with them this summer. I also love the beach dresses, most that I own are very comfortable and the ones on this site look like they would be too. Thanks again for sharing this information.

    Great post with lots of information.

    I currently live in Saudi Arabia, and I’ve been to the beach only a couple of times. Unlike in my home country where I used to wear a kaftan over my bathing suit, we keep our abayas at all times and do not take it off even when we take a dip into the water.

    I have never worn a crochet swimsuit cover ups, and that’s what I’ll probably opt to wear when next I go to the beach in my home country.

    • Hi Princila

      Thank you for visiting my website! I am happy you have found my post helpful. Crochet swimsuit cover up is a great choice – it looks outstanding and is particularly suitable for a hot day on the beach as it will keep you cool!

      Cheers, Arta

  4. Mattina Engel

    Thank you for your informative post on swim suit cover ups. In the past, I just wore a tee shirt over my swimsuit. I enjoyed the video and now know a few more ways to cover up but I think my favourite was the cover-up dresses and the crochet cover up.
    It would have been great if some of those pics had links attached to them so that I could click on them and be taken to a sales page. Do you know where I can purchase some of these coverups? I love them!

    A great selection here and good timing too! We are thinking about booking a summer holiday, so there are some great ideas here. I love the tunics and beach dresses in particular. Good idea to have a video about tying a sarong – I never realized there were so many different ways to tie one. What’s your favorite cover up item for the beach?

    • Hey Mara

      I am practical woman so I also love tunics and beach dresses mostly due to the fact that these can be worn as casual summer outlooks, as well 🙂 However, when seeing the versatility of beach sarongs cover ups I think I will include this in my wardrobe as well. Why not to get 20 different outlooks for the price of one cover up? 🙂

      Cheers, Arta

  6. Elva

    Hey Arta!

    Perfect timing as I just bought some bikinis the other day and I’m planning to buy cover ups to go with them!:) I personally prefer tunic cover ups because they are usually lightweight and more versatile! And I could wear them all year long in the Southeast.

    Thanks for sharing!


    • Hey Elva

      Tunic cover ups are a great choice as they are versatile and can be easily worn as a casual summer outfit. Actually each type of women swimsuit cover ups features its advantages and character, and it is just a matter of finding the one matching your needs. But without doubt it is a great piece of clothing to finish your beach outlook in a graceful and elegant manner!

      Happy shopping!

  7. Brenda

    I am going with some friends to the beach and I haven’t been to the beach in years. I would like to cover up my thighs and the swimsuit cover up will be great to wear. I like that there are many different types of cover ups and many ways of wearing them. Thank you for the information on cover ups.

    • Hey Brenda

      The good thing is that there are few ways of covering up your thighs. Beach cover ups are a great option when it comes to covering up your thighs unless you choose swimdress or some other type of bathing suit with skirt. Bathing suit with skirt keeps your thighs covered also during swimming but it is little bit specific swimsuit choice and not everybody would dare to wear it.

      Cheers, Arta

  8. Dr. Misty Baker

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for this article!

    I NEVER hit the beach or pool without a cover up! My favorite style of cover up is definitely the sarong, but I had NEVER considered tying them differently depending on body shape!

    That information was very educational and will definitely come into use come summer-time!

    Thanks again for this fabulous piece of work!

    • Hey Misty

      I am glad my post about women swimsuit cover-ups has helped you. I do hope you will find your perfect beach cover up to hit the beach in style 🙂

      Happy shopping, Arta

    Even though, I am at the healthy weight and I still am not confident about my body. It is just who I am. I am very familiar with Sarong, I am from Thailand, sarong is very versatile and I never thought that I can use that to cover up my body!! This is amazing. I love the tunic too, I get to show my legs a little. The beach dress is also very cute. Thank you so much for your suggestion!  

  10. Mark

    As clearly the odd man out, I’ll not say much but simply appreciate the consideration of plus-size women and expectant mothers. Kaftan and light fabrics are surely the way to go to keep in line with the relaxed ambiance at the beach. I didn’t know that crochet could work as coverup! I’ve learnt something new today. Thanks for an elaborate option-loaded article Arta.

    We are Blessed.
