There’s nothing like the summer for bringing a smile to our faces – BBQ’s on the beach, strolls along the prom, and for the luckier ones, trips abroad. Whatever the occasion, choosing the right kind of beachwear can make or break the experience. You don’t want to get caught out in the sun for too long, so choosing the right beach sundress is important. But ladies beach dresses aren’t only about covering up. A long and lazy beach day can often turn to an evening of cocktails, so you’ll want to make sure you’re ready for both the beach and the bar. At Lingerie Outlet Store we stock beach dresses from high-quality brands like Fantasie, Freya, Lingadore, Chantelle, Maison LeJaby and more. Our collections range from elegant maxi dresses to shorter, playful beach dresses.
What are the best types of beach dress?
If you’re the spontaneous type, consider a beach dress that will suit a range of vibes. An on-trend, pastel maxi dress can give you a considered, stylish aesthetic for the whole day. The long, past-the-knee hemline is great for keeping you out of a hot sun but doubles up as classy evening wear too. For those who like to keep active, a bandeau styled strapless dress can give you a good amount of coverage, in a flowy, easy-to-wear style. These are perfect for sight-seeing or any holiday activities more active than lounging on the beach.
Beach dresses are usually made from lightweight materials to help you stay cool. Look for a ladies’ beach dress made from a mix of synthetics like polyamide and elastane, or a natural material like cotton. These help with breathability and staying cool, while still giving you the cover you need to avoid sunburn.
Consider a loose-fit option like a kaftan beach dress for a casual, beach chill aesthetic. Don’t think this means you need to lose shape though. If enhancing your silhouette is important, there are plenty of ladies’ summer dresses to keep your waist looking trim and your curves looking fabulous.
If you’re petite or have a slim frame, consider a beach dress with a bright, busy pattern. A ladies’ summer dress with a belt tie can help you achieve an hourglass figure. A maxi dress will accentuate your length and streamline your silhouette.
For those with more curves, remember to choose a beach dress that will make the most of your hourglass shape. Avoid heavy patterns and embellishments and opt instead for the likes of a simple black beach dress. If you fancy something a little brighter, a pastel coloured maxi dress is a great idea, especially one that’s nipped around the waist, helping form a slim mid-section.
