Where can I buy beach cover ups/kaftans. I'm short so no billowing maxi dresses.

I'm a size 12 and a bit wobbly (but that's ok)
I prefer knee length or shorter ideally.
I don't have a big budget, I looked in Primark but they really looked like they were cheap and very holey!
I think £15 to £20 is my max budget.
I have had a look on the high st but I'm going away in a month and the shops don't seem to have much in yet.

I saw some nice ones in M&S that started at £15 and went up to £30 yesterday

Should be decent quality too!

How about an oversized shirt: Beach Shirt

Thanks. The Matalan ones look great and about the right price for my budget.
The nicer M & S ones are a little too expensive unfortunately.
Not sure about a shirt cover up. Might make me look like a square! grin

H&M might have something. Also try the online swimwear stores such as Simply Beach, Airy Mary, Surfdome. Could be some sale bargains.

How about typing some key words into eBay? Beach cover, kaftan, etc and your size. You can add a name like Topshop in your search if you want specific brand, or just filter out all the ~cheap Chinese~ rubbish, and also select new if you don't want used of course (though I buy used items regularly and they are nearly always in excellent condition!)

George have done some nice beach stuff in recent years at good prices. They don't seem to have a large selection online atm but again I bet there are tons of previous designs on eBay, probably going quite cheap too.
