Looking for bathing suit cover ups that flatter a pear shaped body? These are MUST buys for the summer!
Let’s talk beach style. I know, I know. I’m talking bathing suits a lot lately. But, ’tis the season. And until a year ago…..I pretty much refused to wear one (you can read all about WHAT changed my mind HERE). Well now, I’m all about putting my pear shaped body into a bathing suit and enjoying the summer weather.
If you’re planning a family beach day, or a vacation somewhere tropical……than I can guarantee you’re on the hunt for more that just bathing suit. To kick off the summer season, I’m sharing my favorite bathing suit cover ups for a pear shaped body. These will get you from the car (or hotel room) to the water in style.
A few things to think about when looking for bathing suit cover ups for a pear shape: think about skimming the body, not hiding it in drapey fabric. Sheer pieces or pieces that showcase your favorite body parts will be a lot more flattering than an oversized tee shirt. Flatter your curves, and you’ll feel like a million bucks!

Crochet and Embroidered Bathing Suit Cover Ups: Doesn’t a pretty fringed or crochet cover up just scream relaxing day at the beach? My favorite part about cover ups with crochet and lace? They tend to be sheer, so you can pick a piece that showcases your favorite body parts easily!

Vibrantly Colored Bathing Suit Cover Ups: You guys know I’m not one to hide behind a neutral color. I love vibrant colors, and bathing suit cover ups are no exception (this ruby colored one is my current obsessed and it’s a TOTAL STEAL). Find a color that flatters you, and wear it all summer long.

Maxi and Midi Length Bathing Suit Cover Ups: I get it. You’re already wearing a bathing suit. You want your cover up to……cover a little more skin. A maxi or midi length cover up will give you a slightly more conservative look. Rule of thumb? Sheer or open if you’re going long………because otherwise, it’s going to make you look as WIDE as your widest part. For midi length? You’ll be showcasing your lower legs and arms, so a thicker fabric works!
