Whether you’re swimming, beaching, or vacationing, our swim and beach cover-ups are a perfect complement to our collection of do-anything swimsuits and bikinis. Whether you’re looking for a full coverage maxi dress or a UPF 50 rashguard
, Title Nine’s coverups have you covered.
Are there different kinds of beach cover ups?
Beach coverups come in all different types—from sun-blocking UPF 50 performance pieces to casual, versatile tops
, jumpsuits & rompers
, and cover-up dresses
that are as at home on the beach as they are out to dinner. So, how do you decide what kind of beach cover up is best for you?
- If you’ll be mostly hanging on the beach or pool and in the water, consider a rash guard, swim shirt
or other swimsuit cover up that’s made of swimsuit material—quick-dry, UPF 50 material that looks right at home on top of your swimsuit or other swimwear.
- Looking for something more flexible? Check out our collection of breathable, easy-care tops, flowy beach cover-up dresses, as well as tunics
, swim skirts
, and pants that can do double duty as swimwear cover ups and summer wardrobe essentials.
Are beach cover ups essential?
In our professional opinion, they’re pretty important. Swimsuit cover ups serve so many purposes:
- They’re better than sunscreen: Grab a swimsuit cover up with a UPF rating for sun protection that doesn’t wash off.
- They’re coverage when you want it: That teeny tiny bikini might be great for catching a wave, but it’s always nice to have a little more bum coverage when our surf session is done.
- They’ll cut the chill: Not every minute of the day is bathing suit ready—swimsuit cover ups are a perfect layering piece for chilly mornings or post-water warm-ups.
- They’re quick-change artists: No need to take a time-out to change—a cover up dress or tunic can help you seamlessly transition from beach day to dinner out.
Can I use these cover ups at the pool too?
Swimwear cover ups can be used anywhere you’re swimming (or even waterside lounging). Many of them are flexible enough to work for almost any summertime activity. If you want a cover up that works both in and out of the pool, look for swimwear cover ups and rashguards made out of the same (or similar) material as your swimsuit for a quick-drying performance piece with built-in sun protection.
How should I care for a swim cover up?
Chlorine, sunscreen, sand, salt, and sweat can all be tough on your bathing suit and cover up. Luckily, there are a few simple ways to keep your swimwear looking newer for longer:
- Soak your swimsuit and swim cover up in fresh, cold water as soon as you can. This helps get rid of the gunk that leaves your swim cover up faded and stained, even if you don’t get around to washing it for a while.
- Hand-wash when possible. Hand washing is gentlest on clothes, giving them a longer life.
- Skip the dryer. Hang or lay flat to dry to keep your swim cover up in tip-top shape.
