Top Tiered 5: Must Have Cover Ups

Posted on September 28 2023

In our Top Tiered series of posts we'll be sharing our top 5 picks of Sandpipers pieces based on a single given factor.  While we love a fun "Top Picks List" especially when it comes to entertainment or shopping, we hope that this series will also help answer some of the customer questions we receive so often such as, "What is your most supportive bikini top?" or "Which swimsuit provides the most coverage?".  Lately we've been getting requests for suggestions on the best cover ups to add to your vacation wardrobe, so for our first list we're sharing our top 5 Must Have Cover Ups!

Check out the contenders and see how they ranked!



Curious why these 5 made the cut? Read on!


This pick from Baku is so lightweight and comfy it had to be a part of the draft! The Moroccan Kaftan is a one size fit cover up with universal appeal. It looks great on so many shapes and sizes and with its simple silhouette, cute tassel trim edging, and ladder lace front insets, it seems to weather the storm of “trendy” newcomers and is consistently a best seller.


The Island Fare V neck Tunic from La Blanca looks fabulous on literally EVERYONE! All shapes and sizes can rock this simple yet extremely flattering cover up. Plus it has that flirty crochet detail that elevates the look with some boho-chic. This is a piece that is restocked consistently as it tends to sell out quickly and those who love it will inevitably buy it in every colour!


The entire Vitamin A brand ranks highest on the list of eco-friendly, sustainable swim and resort wear every time! Everyone should have a chic linen button down shirt in their closet and the Playa Oversized Linen Shirt is a must have for us for its timeless silhouette and styling versatility. Made of 100% Linen that is 100% biodegradable with natural shell buttons and long sleeves, this beach shirt makes a breezy cover up but can also be worn year round tucked into denim or tied at the front for an effortless weekend look.


This popular piece was a no-brainer. The Seafolly Amnesia Kaftan is made of 100% Cotton Gauze with a crinkle texture that makes it perfect for rolling up into your travel luggage or beach bag with no ironing required upon arrival. This throw on and go cover up is also a one-size fit so there’s no sizing guess work involved either, win win! Cover up trends will come and go but the Amnesia Kaftan is forever!


We love Canadian Brand, Koy Resort not just for their stunning fashion pieces but also for their affordable price point! The Zuma Tunic Dress is a statement piece in every way, from its sexy chevron allover lace, to its bell sleeves and fringe hem, this sheer tunic dress has a glam 70’s vibe that is so appealing it continues to be a customer favourite season after season. Bonus: This cover up dress can also be worn over a slip as a cocktail dress. Talk about making your dollars stretch!
