I'd like a simple t-shirt dress as a beach cover-up

I don't want sheer floaty fabrics, or kaftan type things, just a simple cotton t-shirt dress to wear over my bikini, to and from the beach.

On paper this Gap one is it, but it really doesn't look nice even in the picture. Where can I find a better one?

H & M ?

Next or h&m

I bought a couple from h&m last week. Both tshirt style and vest top style.

Tesco have a few but they are viscose / elastane mix

I got the Tesco one. Thin blue stripes, v loose and comfy.

Lands end - sale on, too:-)

The Tesco new swingy dresses are great, flattering shape, I was tempted but too flimsy for day to day - perfect for the beach though.

Here and in several colours.

Coastingit Sun 28-Jun-15 11:22:29

Oops yes they are viscose. But that's breathable.

SarahManning Sun 28-Jun-15 14:57:09

I have one that I love for the beach - it's from topshop. I'm not sure if they sell them anymore but may be worth a look

SwedishEdith Sun 28-Jun-15 15:22:51

Ha posted to suggest that gap one. I've just bought it and I like it. Only £15 in the shop

RoosterCogburn Sun 28-Jun-15 15:35:22

Wolf and York do 100% cotton summer dresses, there are some T shirt style ones here

Hoppinggreen Sun 28-Jun-15 16:58:42

I've got that Gap one in the pinky red colour, it's nice

Pumpkinette Sun 28-Jun-15 19:34:57

I was looking for one too and the green one from gap looks perfect for my colouring. Why is it so hard to find a beach cover up that covers the shoulders?

Valsoldknickers Sun 28-Jun-15 20:24:48

I've bought this one from Next for my holidays, what swung it for me was the fact it's 100% cotton. There are too many garments made with Sweaty Betty fabrics around at the moment grin
