Just in: Sun Protective Cover-Up Swim Dresses by BLOQUV

Fashion, function and fun?  Oh yeah – we’ve got all three covered!  We’ve just added these fantastic swim dresses from BLOQUV.  These cover-ups are super cute, they provide fantastic sun protection, and they’re ready for some hard play in the sun and surf.

Fashion, yes indeed.  These cover-up dresses have a lively, sleek, chic vibe.  The zip at the collar can zip up for full sun protection, or down for a little sassiness.  The drawstrings at both sides let you control the length – pull them tight for a shirt length and flattering ruching, let them out, and you have a tunic or dress length that covers the derriere.  Don one that coordinates with your favorite bikini, and let the bottom peek out.  Or, take advantage of the longer length when you want that extra coverage.  Whether at the pool, beach or somewhere in between, you’ll look the part in a BLOQUV cover-up dress.  They come in three easy-to-coordinate colors: black, white and blue. 

On the function front, these tunic cover-ups are the real deal.  They provide incredible sun coverage: long sleeves, a collar, and a zip at the neck mean your precious skin will be covered.  The fabric is rated UPF 50+, meaning it blocks 98% of the sun’s UVA and UVB rays.  And the details are all thought out – comfortable flat seams, extra-long sleeves to fully cover the hands, even a little pocket to hold your phone.  They've got comfort and sun protection, all ready to serve you well during an action-packed day in the sun.     

And finally – fun!  Your typical cover-up is a great option when you’re on the beach or lounging poolside.  These cover-ups do all that … and they go IN the water too!  No need to lose the fabulous sun protection, just because you’re ready for a dip in the pool; just keep your BLOQUV swim dress on and dive right in.  This means there’s no slowing down between sunbathing and splashing in the waves.  Got the kids are with you?  A BLOQUV cover-up is ideal!  Kids may want to build sandcastles one minute, then bodysurf the next; swim like fish in the pool, then suddenly declare snack time.  You’ll keep up with the kids, without missing a beat. 

With a BLOQUV cover-up sun dress, you’ll stay in the action while being confident that you’re protected from the sun.  Just add a great sun hat, a pair of glamorous sunglasses and some sunblock on your lower half, and you’ll be fashionable, sun-protected, and ready for some fun!
