Swimsuit cover-ups aren’t really about covering up -- they are about showing off! Not convinced? Take a look at these swimsuit cover-ups that show off your summertime curves.

Chiffon maxi cover-up

Price: $22

Beaded caftans

This cover-up is sexy yet demure -- the maxi length is perfect for all body types and heights, and the fluttery sleeves and empire waistline are very flattering to most figures as well. Flaunt some sexy skin with the plunging neckline and sheer fabric.

Old Navy's layering caftans have Boho style, beaded detailing at the low-cut scoop V-neckline, trendy batwing sleeves, flowing layers and length that hits mid-thigh. Available in hazard orange and beach cruiser green, it's tough to pick a favorite. But one thing's for sure, either bright hue will make a splash.

Ruffle romper

Split-sleeve tunic

The romper's popularity is holding strong this season and we love this jersey knit one with spaghetti straps and ruffle detail across the neckline -- it just screams summer fun. We suggest you add at least one romper to your cover-up collection this season!

Show off a little leg in this mixed-print split-sleeve tunic. With three-quarter length sleeves and a modest neckline, this patterned tunic is the perfect cover-up all by itself for day time -- or paired with some skinny jeans for a stroll along the coast at night.

Terry halter dress

Price: $20

Stripe-hem dress

This casual and cool terry cloth dress with rope-tie around the neck is perfect to toss on after a dip in the pool or the surf. The high-thigh length is sexy and flattering and it comes in a variety of colors -- black, white, bright coral-pink and aquamarine.

This loose and flirty dress with cinched waist is easy and comfortable enough to wear as a cover-up but dressy enough to wear out and about.

Smocked gauze maxi

Price: $24
