Favourite Beach Cover Up Dresses 

Whether you’re heading to the beach during the warmer months or you’re planning a luxurious resort getaway with your family, a beach cover up is a summer must have. Stock your summer wardrobe with our collection of beautiful kaftans and beach cover ups and step out in style. 

In Australia, our beach culture is second to none. Our summers are spent coming and going to the beach or pool, stopping for lunch or other leisure activities in between. Kaftans and beach wear are essential for keeping covered when out and about or staying protected from the sun at the beach. 

Here at Capriosca Swimwear we understand the importance of sun protection. We also know that our customers want to look and feel their best when heading the beach. Our beach wear is thoughtfully designed with a beautiful style for every shape and size.

Bold or classic, a beach cover up or kaftan is your perfect summer essential

Whether you're after a bright coloured beach dress, tailored over shirt, or a versatile sarong skirt, Capriosca Swimwear has you covered. Literally. 


Our kaftan collection is full of beautiful cover ups in prints and plain colours show off your unique style. You'll be spoilt for choice with lightweight cotton plus size kaftans, relaxed, block printed kaftans, as well as gorgeous mesh styles. 

Not only are kaftans great for the beach, but they make a fabulous throw on for when you're relaxing at home on a hot summer's day. They are also ideal for packing in your luggage when you head off on holidays. 

Whether you're lazing on a boat in the Mediterranean or watching the sunset on a tropical island, having a gorgeous kaftan on hand is a practical and stylish decision. You can easily pop a kaftan on over your bikini or one piece when out and about in local towns and villages. 

At Capriosca Swimwear we offer our kaftans in classic black and white as well as bright and beautiful summer shades. A fun print or self patterned mesh is fabulous for showing off your unique style and personality.

Who doesn’t love a sarong? Whether you’re heading to the beach or even to picnic at the park, a sarong is one of the most versatile ladies cover ups you can have at your disposal.  

Our classic sarong is made with 100% cotton in a generous size; big enough to wrap around your curves or to use as a thin towel when down at the beach. With a stylish self stripe and pom pom trim, our cotton sarongs are an easy addition to your holiday wardrobe. With a selection of classic colours and seasonal hues, it's hard to stop at just one of these beauties. 

Sarongs are a perfect ladies cover up addition if you want to have your swimwear on display but still have some form of a cover up. Get creative and style your sarong in different ways to make the most out of your summer wardrobe. You can wear them as a long or short skirt, strapless or halter dress, a shawl, kimono or even a stylish head wrap. Check out our guide to styling your sarong skirt

Mesh Wrap Skirt

Are you after a fun and flirty alternative to a classic sarong? Our mesh wrap skirt is a shorter style available in two lengths. Take your pick from plain black and navy or go for a printed design to mix and match with your swimwear. 

Made from quick drying fabric, the mesh tie skirt can be worn in and out of the water, offering a more feminine alternative to board shorts for coverage. Super lightweight and barely there, these beach skirts are ideal to have on hand for when you need a little more coverage at the beach or pool.
