It would have been to obvious to write a post about bikinis and swimming suits in general, that’s why I am talking about coverups. On one hand I have never understood why I should spend a lot of money for a bathing suits unless I have the possibility to live the life and spend my vacations in the Caribbean’s or in Costa Smeralda (Sardinia). To go on the beach around where I live (Lignano, Jesolo, Bibione, Caorle), a standard bikinis is more than enough.
On the other hand I have always like the coverups which are beach dresses, sometimes created in combination with a bikini or bathing suit, and can be worn also at night time at a club or at a dinner.

What is the difference between kaftan, sarong, and tunics?
Sarong is a piece of fabric wrapped around the waist, it can be wore both by men and women ( In Italian pareo).
Kaftan is usually a buttoned long dress or overcoat. It can be embellished by decorations.
Tunic is a kind of garment that can be of different length from hips to ankles. The name derivates from the Roman and Greek tunics.
