If anyone is petite like me, then you may have had a hard time finding the right pool or beach cover up before.
A few years ago I got this dress from Target and the first Summer I had it, I wore it as a dress. But, the second Summer I had it, I started to wear it as a cover up. That cover up lasted a few years but this year, I was on the hunt for a new one. The cover ups in the stores like Nordstrom and South Moon Under, while are all in style and pretty, were all generally quite large and too loose on me.
Then, I remembered! Why not try again with the dress and make another not cover up cover up? I started this hunt back early in the season, like April or May, so the good news is that the one I found at Target (XS) and am wearing is now on sale! #whodoesntloveasale
This not cover up cover up dress is a guaze material (100% rayon), making it perfectly light weight for the beach or pool. It has adjustable straps and comes in black or coral. It is the perfect length and looseness for my 5’1 frame. Did I mention it’s on sale!?
You can even do a few yoga poses in it? 😉
A few other similar versions of this cover up I found are by Elan. I will confess, I own the Elan Slip Dress Cover Up in white (in a Small, the smallest size it came in) but it was big on me and then I washed it and shrank to a better size. So, it does fit better then before but the straps do fall off of me quite a bit, even with them on the tightest setting. The Target one is so similar and fits so much better though!
