IVY Swimwear a Brand for all Body Types

The swimwear industry has failed curvy and midlife women for a long time. Just think ill-fitting tops for top-heavy women, or no coverups for the midlife belly fat and curves. Browsing photos of Miami Swim Week, I discovered a woman-owned brand, IVY Swimwear that offers swimwear for all shapes and sizes.

Empowering Women by Including Diversity

Belonging to a minority founder Linda Chiou has used her awareness of the difference and diversity of women body shapes to create an inclusive swimwear brand. Besides delicate bikinis, the brand now also has a collection of fashionable coverups in unique designs from wraps to dresses and kimono-style. These pieces empower the wearer to feel confident in their bodies. They stand out at the pool or beach bar because of their fun and flirty look or ultra-modern colorful prints.

Who wants to be invisible?


My Reaction when Opening the Package

The great craftsmanship of the coverup impressed me. Given the price tag ($54.99) I had expected that the beads are glued on. However, they are actually weaved in – read on the yarn – of which the coverup is made. No wonder that my husband said “That’s a nice stole. Did you order it?” And indeed, because of this detail the coverup can also multi-task to dress up a LBD for a dance party, going out for dinner on vacation (see photos below) or date night. A perfect piece for any vacation wardrobe.

Why Did I pick the Rue Black Fringe Sarong?

Their coverup collection ranges from full-body coverage to flirty designs. I was looking for a coverup to use when visiting hot springs. My favorite place has a section where you can drink non-alcoholic beverages or eat a snack. When you sit on the stool, your legs are exposed. Despite my legs are my best feature, I don’t like to show them from the boom to the toes. No idea why. The coverup gives me the feeling of coverage while still showing off my legs. It permits me to show off skin strategically. Less skin is more. Problem solved!

What I Like about the IVY Fringe Sarong

Definitely the craftmanship and the delicate timeless design. The yarn is study so I expect the piece to last for several years. It is also very affordable and versatile. I love when you can wear/style a piece for multiple occasion. Therefore, the cost-per-wear will go easily below $1 over its tenure in any wardrobe. Consequently, I have no hesitation to recommend this IVY Swimwear coverup to my friends and family.

The coverup is a perfect fit for the evening, beach, and vacation wardrobe of women with glamorous personal style. Because of its ageless design and versatility to style and wear, it’s also a great gift for any woman on your holiday shopping list.

You can find IVY Swimwear on their store page online, and on Amazon.

    I love how you can wear it as a scarf too. It’s beautiful Nicole. I tried to sign up again for emails. It’s so interesting how I haven’t been getting yours for a while now that I think of it.

    You look great in this suit. I love that you are able to wear the sarong multiple ways and the beading dresses it up! Lovely.
    Hope you are doing well!
