If you live in your bathing suit for the summer like me, then you know just how much a swimsuit wrap cover up is imperative! Not only to help dry off, for a great put together look, and also as it states, to cover up your body when wearing your swim suit! I love these! Whether your purchase a pullover or sarong type, these fashion pieces are worth the price! Today I decided to show you 4 ways to wear a Sarong Cover Up.
The term "sarong" is an English loanword of Malay origin meaning "to cover" or "to sheath". It was first used in 1834 referring skirt-like garment of the Malay. The sarong is a traditional garment of Java and the Malay archipelago, consisting of a length of fabric wrapped and tied around the body at the waist or arms.
I love to wear these by the poolside! I recently got this beauty, so it just made sense to make a post about the ways to wear a sarong. Because of my weight gain, and my inability to love myself in my own skin, I have blurred some of the pictures, or the pictures were cropped . Yes this the way I want them to be. Please, there is no need to let me know. It was my only way to post the pictures, that I was comfortable with.
I love this sarong. I love the green leaves with the coral print! So very summer! The first way to wear the sarong is what I like to call "the around your neck". You take the two ends, cross them in front of you and tie them in the back behind your neck, into what looks to be a dress.
Next is the "wrap around your waist" skirt style. You just wrap around your lower body and tie the knot at the side. A great option, however if your are well-endowed like myself, this will not cover up your upper body. This is the way I wear my sarong wrap around the pool with my husband.
The next way to wear your wrap is to wear it "over the shoulder" style. You take both ends, tie them together and place the knot over your one shoulder. This gives a more full body cover up, however with a short skirt look. Easy Peasy!
Finally, I like to do one that I call the "upper breast wrap". You just tie the two ends tight on your upper breast bone with the knot to the side.
