Fishnet Cover-Ups

Wearing a fishnet cover-up is a sexy way to show off your figure in a revealing swimsuit while still covering problem areas and leaving something to the imagination.

For ladies of every age, finding a swimsuit that looks just right in every way can prove challenging to say the least.Why not add a coordinated fishnet cover-up?This versatile accessory will make your suit look even more eye-catching.Depending on how you wear it, your fishnet cover-up can draw attention away from problem areas and lead the eye to your best features.It can also make a fun and casual fashion statement that's a great way to transition from swimming to socializing.

For some of us, revealing our upper arms, chest, and shoulders just isn't the thing - but we don't want to look stuffy or over-dressed while poolside or at the beach.A pretty fishnet cover-up in a color that matches or complements your swimming suit can be thrown over your shoulders for a fun and casual look.Take a few minutes to choose a shade that brings out your eyes and the beauty of your skin color.Deep greens and blues look great with golden skin and brown eyes; lighter colors work well for blondes and paler complexions.

Upper thighs (and of course the dreaded rear end) are also a big concern for many women.Even someone who is in great shape might have trouble keeping these notorious problem areas "camera ready".


Whether it is cellulite, varicose veins, or a just a little extra flab, a perfect pair of thighs and flawless derriere are assets many aspire to but few achieve.At the same time, most women do not want to resort to a swimsuit featuring a pleated skirt.

Tying a fishnet cover-up casually around your waist, in the manner of a skirt, is a perfect way to deal with this issue.Choose one with enough fabric so that it will still cover your upper thighs should you cross your legs.

Even if you've got nothing to hide, a fishnet cover-up tied loosely, with a revealing slit, can be sexier (and feel more comfortable) than going bare legged.For slightly more formal gatherings, such as a cocktail party around the pool, try adding kitten-heeled flip flops to show off pedicured toes.

If you love the look of a bikini but aren't quite confident enough to pull it off unassisted, a fishnet cover-up can work great for you too.Wear an oversized style like a shawl, or tuck one around yourself like a sarong.Even if you end up braving it without your cover-up, you'll feel more confident knowing it's at hand.

Always remember, however, that no matter how it is worn, a fishnet cover-up will not protect your delicate skin from the sun.Don't forget to apply plenty of sunscreen to any skin not covered by your bathing suit, and pay special attention to vulnerable areas like your shoulders, back and upper chest.Try to keep time spent in direct sunlight to a minimum, and stay properly hydrated at all times.Healthy skin comes from without and from within - taking good care now will keep yours beach-ready for years to come!
