First foreign holiday since before dcs. I am going to wear a bikini - but think I want a cover up/ dress I can put on over it when we're done at the pool/ beach.

Can you suggest something? It's been so long since I had a holiday somewhere warm!

Monsoon have some pretty beach cover up stuff at the moment. If you want something a bit cheaper then have a look on Amazon, loads of kaftan style stuff on there.

Boohoo have a bunch of strappy swing dresses which are ideal, I've been living in them in the hot weather. Only about £8 too

M&S have a few.

My most successful ones have always been from Peacocks (?!) but nothing online looks right at the moment.

Asda actually have some lovely ones in store. In Liverpool. Matalan had some nice ones too. Primark always have a good range too.

I bought a couple of these which are good, plain and simple and comfy -
dresses on Amazon

Dd got a couple of cute ones (my favorite is black with watermelons) from Primark.

Not a dress but almost! V v comfortable, although since I bought it, it hasn't been warm enough to wear! Comes in lots of colours.

I like these beach cover up shirts from M&S - they look comfortable and practical:

I would suggest you save your money until you get to the resort. There will be shops that have worked out the perfect weight and fashion for the area. One will have exactly what you didn't know you wanted, and you will take it on holiday for five years. At least, that's what I do. HTH.

I've got that knot front one in red and black from m and s, was really handy on hols easy to take on and off comfy and smart enough to go for lunch in. Also they didn't crease in case.

I've just bought one from next. Kaftan I think it's called. A v neck with pulled in waist sits about thigh level. White with a flower pattern. Or prinark do chiffon type ones.

I had a couple of wee dresses from Asda at about £6-8 each. They were fab x

Watching with interest

Those M&S ones are lovely but out of tock in my size/colour

Might try the boohoo ones
