Default Need help choosing a beach cover up

Hey Ladies

I'm going to Puerto Rico with my family and I need a beach cover up. Which one do you like best?

The purple one is technically a dress, not a cover up, but I tried it anyway.

I like the first two best. You can wear them as dresses if you're heading out right after swimming/sunning.

The first and second one are really cute, though the first one looks like it would be more suited for hot weather and, well, swimming.

Have you ever considered a Sarong style?

I like #2 because it lends itself to being a casual dress more easily than the other two. Which makes it a 2-fer-1. Which makes it lighter packing when traveling. Which is a bonus to me because I like packing light!

The others are cute, but def saying "I'm a coverup for the beach!" and aren't as flexible. Which is fine if you have the suitcase space. But if suitcase weight is a concern... I'd go #2, and consider as many flex pieces possible to lighten up the suitcase.

I like the first one, but I'm leaning towards the second, only for the "lighter packing" like astrophe said.

GL!

And you look fab!

I always put a summer dress over for a cover up. Of course the flip side of that is that your suit needs to be dry to put the dress back over it or a material that dries fast.

I hate beach coverups for the most part. The options are usually pretty uninspiring to me for some reason.

I like the first 2, also.

I say go for #1 if you want to look super beachy and casual, and are OK with everyone you see knowing you're wearing your swimsuit.

Pick #2 if you want to hide the suit more, and go out in public incognito.

If they were cheap enough (and you had enough room in the suitcase), I'd buy both!
