Girls’ Swim Coverups For Stylish Poolside Adventures

Along with the bathing suit, a good cover-up should be part of the fun-in-the-sun arsenal. In addition to the sunscreen, towel, flippers, goggles, and other assorted toys, a cover-up should also make the list. When an hour in the pool turns into an all-afternoon event, tossing a cover-up on will lessen sun exposure and risk of sunburn. We found a cute options that we’d wear, if they came in our size.
