Covers without being to hot or bulky and so feminine! Couldn't ask for a nicer cover up for the beach.

Very comfortable. Can be worn straight or bloused, looks good either way.

I ordered this cover-up in the white and it was a little too see through for me. It was very pretty and comfortable but I felt if I wanted to pop into a store or restaurant I wouldn't be comfortable with my swimsuit showing so much. The embroidery on the front is very nice and I liked the drawstring waist. Depending on the look and length you want you can order a size up for a looser fit which would be easier to get on and off. On the plus side this fabric being on the thin side wouldn't be too warm.

It's really cute on. It fits well and looks classy.
I will be wearing it on a cruise and around town because it doesn't look like a cover up but a dress. Love it.

Cute and good fit
I did read the other reviews before ordering, and decided to go ahead and purchase. I am 5'6" and have slim hips, so figured I wouldn't have the problems the others described. It fits me fine and is attractive!

I wish I loved it
Almost all items labeled as a "cover-up" really don't cover much of anything, so I was super excited to find this. Online, it looked like it provided ample coverage without being frumpy - not so in real life. After trying it on at home, I was disappointed...and confused. As someone else mentioned, the drawstring is indeed in a weird place on the garment - way too low. You have to pull it up to be able to tie it even around your hips, which causes the fabric to bunch and flop very unflatteringly. Even just tightening the string a minimal amount causes weird fabric bunching, but if I don't tighten it at all, the garment looks way too big on me. (I'm 5'5", 128 lbs., and I ordered an extra small.) There's just SO MUCH FABRIC from below the bust to the drawstring tie. The top part of the garment looks great though. The fit is fine in the arms and bust, and the embroidery is gorgeous. I'm keeping the item because I need it for its practical purpose, not because I truly love it, which is really too bad because it IS so pretty, until I put it on.

Nice fit, good coverage
I'm 59 years old and this is an perfect swim suit cover up. It has sleeves to cover arms, not too short so it covers thighs, not too long to look frumpy, draw string waist to cover ( or not) muffin top. Perfect!

Its beautiful and the blue color is lovely but it needs ironing. After it arrived I washed it and realized it really needs ironing. Also when you are hot and sticky on a beach vacation it would be helpful if you ordered one size up so you can get it on and off more easily without it sticking to much.

I really like the embroidery
I'm 5'8" 145 pounds and got the small in black and the waist where it ties is a little low, but it looks fine to me. I like that it is just a bit see through.
