1. If you're looking for something easy to throw on for some lightweight coziness, try an oversized button-up cover-up with pockets.

Promising review: "It fits bigger women and it BREATHES! I really like this. I'm usually an XL, I'm 5'7"and a size 16. Based on the dress measurements though, it seemed like it would work, and it does! I'm also 52 years old and I can't wear polyester EVER, or I'll swear profusely because of my hormones. The tag on this says 100% cotton. I'm not sure I entirely believe that, but if it's not cotton it's probably rayon, which I'm also ok with. It's very loose and comfortable, but still had some shape, at least for my size. I can see where it might be shapeless but still very comfortable on someone much smaller. I don't have a problem with the sheerness because I bought black. It's definitely not supposed to be warm, or thick, so I wasn't sure how to rate for those. But overall, definitely 5 stars!" — Happy on Long Island

4. A wrap skirt cover-up that won't break the bank and will have you feeling confident as you walk on the beach because, after all, the beach is your runway.

Promising review: "I'd buy it a million times over again!! I have no complaints. It was perfect.One size fits all, so I knew it could be hit or miss. And actually, it was a tad too big for my waist line, but you tie it to fit, so basically that doesn't even matter. I'm 5'8" and it grazed the ground ever so slightly." — smannypanny

9. A chiffon tassel cover-up that comes in an open or closed style is a perfect summer staple. It can match all your other swimsuits easily.

Promising review: "Great Fit XL size 14 woman Awesome price. Does not look or feel cheap. I am 5’11” size XL 14 in women’s. It is not super sheer, and shows just the right amount of swimsuit. I was afraid I wouldn’t like the feel of the material and I thought it would be a stiff or itchy feel on the skin, but it is very soft and breathable. I did not get hot in it either. I was looking for more of a cotton sheet like material, but this is way better. Did not wrinkle or crease ugly it held its shape throughout the day. I washed it with detergent and cool water and let it air dry and it looks brand new. Awesome priced cover up" — S. Marie

10. A romantic caftan cover-up that'll make you look natural and glamorous wherever you wear it and serve as a reminder that you are the amazing main character.

Promising review: "Perfect! I bought these (bought it in the tan color too) for a future trip down to South America (during the hottest and driest time of the year). I wanted something lightweight, comfortable and airy. This is all of those things. I am 5' 2" and approx 180 lbs. This is the 1st thing I've bought is a LONG time that fits great and makes me feel a bit chic (despite the horrible, recent weight gain from a prescription medicine). I couldn't be happier!" — LDJD

12. This sarong cover-up is perfect for anyone who can't decide between a short or long skirt! With this sarong, you can enjoy the best of both worlds!

Promising review: "Will Get the Job Done There isn’t much to this item. It’s a large, see through piece of fabric that you wrap around yourself as a coverup for your bathing suit.I’m 5’3, 140 lbs, and sit right on the fence of small/med and was able to tie it in all the ways the website showed except for the one where you wear it up high (over breasts), criss cross it at the neck, and tie behind the neck. There wasn’t enough fabric to do this without choking myself." — Amazon Customer

13. A comfy pair of lace cover-up shorts with a drawstring closure that'll instantly turn your bathing suit bottoms into a beachside fashion statement.

Promising review: "Amazing! Omg i love love love these! I wear a 22 in jeans and ordered the 3x and they are so comfortable! The lace covers all my flabby, cellulite areas that i dont want to show off and make me feel super comfortable in them! They are lightweight and im sure they will dry quickly. I previously had a swim skirt that i have had for YEARS and the elastic is barely there so it was time for a switch. Im so glad i bought these and im sure you will be too!" — Mommyof4in2

14. A super soft boho swimsuit cover-up that you won't mind changing into, even if you don't really want to get out of the water yet.

Promising review: "Just like the picture Very soft and fits as excepted. It’s very large, but the way it falls doesn’t make me feel like I’m swimming in it. I’m 5’9” and 137lbs. It comes down about 3” on my thighs in the middle and on the sides it comes half way to my knees. The sides lace up with ties and it’s vey pretty! I can’t wait to wear this at the beach! It does snag VERY easily so be careful of that." — Cool_Justine
