Beach Wear

by | 7 Jul 2022

What beach wear to choose?

As Brits I think we often neglect our beachwear. We agonise over our bikini or swimsuit choices and then panic when we realise that we have to get from our room to the pool/beach!

So we just stick on a pair of shorts and a t-shirt…

All okay so far, but what happens when you want to go for lunch or back to your room? You are now all wet and sandy so struggling into those shorts becomes a nightmare. Or you end up getting changed under your towel and flashing to everyone on the beach!

After many years observing what Continental women wear to the beach, I realised that the answer is a beach cover up. This could be a dress, kaftan, sarong, tunic or kimono – something easy and loose to wear over your swimwear. Most of these items are also lightweight, so don’t take up much room in your suitcase and dry quickly.

However, do choose your styles carefully, depending on your body shape.

If you are pear shaped or hour glass, look for something fitted at the waist – a tie or elasticated waist or a sarong. If you choose a kaftan ensure that it is transparent and doesn’t end at the widest point of your thighs.

For all other body shapes kaftans can definitely be your friend.

You can get patterned cover ups to match your swimwear or something plain that will work with everything. To ensure that you get maximum usage some cover ups. Kimonos, dresses or sparkly kaftans, can be used for evening wear or sightseeing and then as beachwear.

So plan ahead and ensure that you have 2 or 3 of these versatile items in your suitcase the next time you hit the beach.
