How To Tie A Sarong Cover Up

January 7, 2020

Heading on a tropical getaway? Don’t forget to pack the most versatile resort-ready piece, a sarong! Whether worn as a dress or wrapped as a skirt, sarongs are one of the most convertible pieces you can add to your warm-weather wardrobe. Sarongs are a great accessory as they pair well with a sexy bra sized bikini or a slimming one piece swimsuit. Add your sarong to your favorite Coco Reef swimsuit for a quintessential beach look that looks effortlessly chic. 

What is a sarong? A sarong is a piece of lightweight fabric that can be tied and worn in a variety of ways. This piece is easily packed away and can be taken with you wherever you go. This piece of fabric is made to be worn over a swimsuit for a beach cover up that’s stylish and timeless. Coco Reef has designed a few sarongs in a variety of prints and colors to suit your unique style. The sarong can also be worn as a layering piece when you want to cover up from the beach to the bar, from the pool through the resort and back again. It’s perfect resort appropriate attire and a great option for the hottest island days. 

Versatility is key with a sarong. Not only is it flattering on every body type and height – but it’s appropriate to wear for nearly any beachside activity. It’s lightweight and comfortable while remaining timelessly chic. While there’s no wrong way to wear your sarong, we have a few easily adjustable options to try. 

 

Simple Side Knot 

Hold the sarong at the back of your waist and bring both ends together and tie a knot. Leave the knot at the side or move to the front for a sexy look. To make a shorter sarong skirt, fold the sarong in half before tying around your waist. 

Halter Dress

Hold your sarong horizontally at the endpoints behind your back at chest level. Create a halter look by bringing each side under your arms and to the front. Cross the sarong over your chest and tie the ends together at the base of your neck as loosely or as tightly as desired. 

One Shoulder 

Similar to the side knot technique, hold the corners of the sarong horizontally and bring forward under your arms. Cross the two ends under one arm and pull over the shoulder to tie the two ends together. This will create an open slit at the side. Wear open as a dress OR tie the bottom points together and tuck the excess under for a one-shoulder tied top.

Kimono

Starting the same way, hold the sarong behind your back and tie the two ends in a knot at the nape of your neck to create a shawl-like kimono. Wear open for a bohemian, flirty look. If you want more coverage, tie the bottom points together and fold the excess under to create a tie front top look. 

Bandeau Dress

For an easy, chic way to tie your sarong, start with the sarong at your back and bring the front under your arms and tie into a knot. Move the knot from the front to the side or the back for a more streamlined look. Opt for a bandeau tie front top by tucking the excess under and taking the bottom points and tying together. Make as long or as short as you’d like for coverage you’re comfortable with.

Mik Zazon in Puerto Rico with Coco Reef Swim

December 13, 2019

At the beginning of the summer, we traveled to Puerto Rico with Mik Zazon. Mik Zazon is a passionate creator, writer, speaker and business owner who lives to help women feel more at home in their bodies. We were thrilled to bring Mik along on our photoshoot to wear our new collection of bra-sized swimsuits and teach women to feel comfortable and confident during swimsuit season. Her passion for body positivity and female empowerment is what we love about this beautiful woman, and it was only natural for us to celebrate the obvious synergies between Mik and Coco Reef, and have her share the Coco Reef message with women all over the world. Shop the new collection, available online now

Behind the Scenes from Puerto Rico:

The difference between me & a model wearing the same bathing suit and same size?? I’m not even going to lie, this really tested my confidence. Put your hands up if you’ve bought a swimsuit subconsciously thinking that SOMEHOW the swimsuit was going to look the same as it did on the girl modeling it. 🙋🏼‍♀️🙅🏼‍♀️ The amount of times I have felt so much shame in my body because this has happened…. the number does not exist lol. I just want to let you know that your beauty relies on you being different. It’s normal to have bumps, marks, and skin that others don’t. ALL bodies are good bodies. So the next time your mind is telling you otherwise, speak back to it and say, “I am not going to expect anything of my body other than showing up as I am”. That right there is healthier than saying “no” to the food you’ve wanted to eat in order to be skinnier or to look different. #mentalhealthawareness #normalizenormalbodies #bodypositive #bodypositivity #bikini #bikinigirl

Supportive Swimsuits for Big Busts

May 17, 2019

When you have been blessed with a chest, swimwear shopping can be a pain. Most times swimsuits are made in standard sizes without any supportive features. It seems like very few companies have large enough sizes that will fit you perfectly. Because of this, busty women are left feeling defeated with an armful of swimsuits that don’t fit properly. Having been established in 1996 with the mission of providing women with swimwear that not only compliments, supports and sculpts the body, Coco Reef has leveraged decades of industry know-how to provide contemporary bra sized swimwear to a diverse customer base.

When it comes to finding the best swimsuit to flatter your large bust, there are a few key things you should be on the lookout for. From the fit, the features, functionality and styling options, Coco Reef has swimsuits by bra size for your beautiful body. There is nothing like the confidence boost a well-fitting bathing suit gives our customers and we wholeheartedly believe that all women deserve to feel that way.

Finding tankini tops that fit my large chest can be a problem, but Coco Reef swimsuits fit great! – Maryann H.

The first thing to consider when shopping for a swimsuit to fit a larger bust is bra sizing. We aim to provide the best-fitting, bra sized swimwear that enhances curves and flatters women everywhere which is why we focus a lot of our attention to our fit. Bra sizing makes swimsuit shopping a little easier. You can shop by the size you normally wear in your favorite bra to get the fit you desire. Coco Reef Swimsuits fit women from a C-Cup to an F-Cup with a multitude of styles and cuts to find your favorite new bathing suit.

Bra Sized, Coco Reef Bra Sized Swimwear, Bra Sized Swimwear

One of the most important things we suggest you look for when shopping for bra sized swimsuits is the features. Supportive features are found in all of our swimsuits! We have a variety of strap options – thicker, adjustable, removable straps, and multi-wear strap options make finding a swimsuit top easier. These strap features give you additional support and security so you can soak up the sun without worry.

Five Way, Coco Reef Five Way, Bra Sized Swimwear

Another feature we love is supportive construction. Coco Reef swimsuits feature molded cups, underwire, and removable soft cups which are extremely important when looking for a bathing suit to accommodate a larger bust. Underwire helps keep you feeling lifted, comfortable, and secure. Molded cups are great for a smooth, shapely look. Removable soft cups are great for a smoother, natural appearance that offers full coverage for breasts. These features or any combination of them are essential for finding a bathing suit that will fit and flatter your figure perfectly.

Although fit and features are extremely important in finding a swimsuit for a larger bust, we believe you shouldn’t have to sacrifice style. Coco Reef offers a variety of cuts, colors, silhouettes, and prints to choose from to suit your unique style! Keep it classic in a simple and timeless solid swimsuit or make a bold statement with trend-focused prints and patterns.

Finally, one of the main things that every customer looks for is OPTIONS! Just because you have a larger bust, doesn’t mean you should have to choose between a few styles that will fit you. At Coco Reef, no matter your bust size, you can feel confident to wear whatever you want!

Our flattering one piece bra sized swimsuits are the epitome of form, fit, and function. With a variety of one piece silhouettes – classic cut, one shoulder, swimdresses, sarongs and more, you can find the swimsuit for you.

If you prefer two piece options, we have the largest selection of bra sized underwire tankini tops that offer the coverage of a one piece swimsuit with the comfort of a two piece swimsuit. If you like to Flaunt Your Shape, our bra sized bikini options are perfect. At Coco Reef, we want to make sure that you’re not sacrificing your style for a supportive swimsuit. Feel confident in having choices that you know will support your every move.

The most important thing is that you should feel comfortable and confident in your beachwear. The bra sized swimsuit options from Coco Reef were made with our fuller busted customer in mind. Choose from a variety of fit-for-you bra sized swimwear options that are perfect for you!

Flaunt Your Shape in Coco Reef Swim: Meet Our Muse, Emily Gellis

May 3, 2019
Emily Gellis, NYC Influencer, Coco Reef Swim, Flaunt Your Shape, LYCRA Brand

When I was first approached to work on this campaign with Coco Reef Swim and LYCRA® brand I was so excited for a multitude of reasons! First and foremost because I believe body positivity is so important in today’s society.  Being that I am a full-time influencer I spend a tremendous amount of time on social platforms such as Instagram, and it is very difficult not to compare yourself to others.  It is easy to slip into the pattern of thinking, “I should be skinnier”, “I should travel more”, “I should be married already with kids”, so on and so forth. I always try and remind my friends who are not full-time influencers that what they are seeing on social media is often the best of the best. Everyone does not look and feel their best 365 days of the year, that would be outright crazy! So it’s important to remember to love yourself, and love the skin you’re in, to understand that everyone has their own path and their own journey and that wherever you are is where you are meant to be.

Emily Gellis, NYC Influencer, Flaunt Your Shape, Coco Reef Swim, LYCRA Brand

There are ways to help yourself feel more confident in the skin you’re in, and that is what is so exciting about working on this campaign. As a former buyer and stylist, I have spent a lot of time over the years testing and feeling fabrics. I can attest to the fact that there are ways to dress that can enhance the features you love about yourself.  When you feel comfortable in your skin and comfortable in what you wear, you automatically feel more confident. I was even shocked on the day we arrived to shoot this campaign at how wonderful the fabric with LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ fiber feels on your body.

Coco Reef Swimwear was established with the mission to enhance, support, and sculpt a woman’s figure in bra-sized swimwear that flatters curves and inspires confidence.  Coco Reef Swimwear has established itself as a fit-focused and fashionable bra sized swimwear brand.

As a curvy girl, finding swimsuits used to be laughable. I cannot tell you how many times I ordered a bathing suit online that covered half a boob, and not even 1/3 of my bum! Every time I would look in the mirror and kind of giggle, “who fits into these?” I thought! Honestly, they were so small on me, that I could only laugh. After I was done giggling, I was like “Now what? I still need a swimsuit and I’m stuck with nada!”

Alas, Coco Reef Swim and LYCRA® brand TO THE RESCUE! Every single piece I wore during this shoot provided comfortable coverage that both looked and felt amazing. They weren’t too tight, they fit just right with room to breathe. We were even dancing on set and everything stayed where it was supposed to! ? Coco Reef swimwear is designed with LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ fiber which ensures a great fit, all season long. LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ fiber resists fit loss and fiber breakage caused by UV, pool water, chlorine, and sunscreen, giving you long-lasting shape, style and fit that resists bag and sag.

Flaunt Your Shape, Coco Reef Swim, LYCRA Brand

 

I am really proud to have worked on this campaign with such an amazing group of girls and I am so happy that companies like Coco Reef Swim and LYCRA® are pushing forward to include girls of all shapes, sizes, and colors in their campaigns. Most important is to be kind and to love yourself! Make sure you check out more from Coco Reef Swim and LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ fiber Flaunt Your Shape campaign here! Happy Friday Babes!

Working with LYCRA® has allowed us to design the industry’s highest quality products for women’s bodies.”

As the premier bra sized swimwear line on the market, Coco Reef is dedicated to providing women with swimwear that compliments, sculpts and supports their figures. Through their partnership with LYCRA® they believe that they will be able to show women that wearing a well-made, perfect-fitting swimsuit does have the power to evoke confidence, self-assurance and strength.

To embolden their #FLAUNTYOURSHAPE campaign, Coco Reef specifically created swimwear that utilizes LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ fiber- a unique technology that holds its shape wear after wear. The result has been highly-celebrated swimwear that highlights the beauty of a woman’s figure.

I can’t remember the last time I wore a 2 piece. Just the thought of it alone freaked me out until I went along on this Self Love journey that has me feeling completely different about myself and about my body. I used to go to the public pool with the kids, with a one piece on- a pair of shorts over it, AND a dress on top flowy enough to not show any lady lumps ?. Meanwhile I doubt anyone at the pool could care less about what i had on or that I had stretch-marks. ??‍♀️. Life is too short to feel paralyzed with fear because of how our bodies look. It’s ridiculous. This is me, in my 2 piece, my DDD boobs, my cellulite and my stretch-marks. and I don’t feel anything but beautiful. FINALLY. I wish every woman I know could get to this place of Self Love! It feels amazing. (Swimsuit is from @cocoreefswim and you can use my code PROSA20 for a discount! #cocoreefswim

It’s always important to remember that “body goals” should simply be a healthy body that makes YOU happy and confident! For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been very conscious of the way that my body looked. I often felt too big, or too small…just simply never enough. It’s this weird mindset that we often get stuck in that we think once we lose some weight or gain some abs, suddenly all our problems will disappear, or we’d somehow become happier. Let me tell you from experience, having a “perfect” body didn’t bring me any special happiness that I didn’t already have inside of me but thinking that I was somehow flawed definitely brought me a ton of unnecessary suffering. Don’t ever compare yourself to someone else. Your physical, mental, and spiritual journeys aren’t meant to be the same. You are uniquely made for a purpose. So, today I hope you take some time to love your body, ensure you’re on a healthy path in taking care of it, and truly embrace your unique self for who you are. Leave me a comment below and tell me one thing you love about your physical self ♥️✨ #sponsored Swimsuit: @cocoreefswim (code SRUTHI20) ?: @prannamusic • • • • • #bodypositivity #wellnessfromwithin #selfiesforselflove #everybodyisbeautiful #bodyacceptance #mindfulness #summerfashion #summerstyle #cocoreefswim #fashiondiaries #styleblogger #thesruthistandard

Diving In with Alex Underwood

December 9, 2016
Alex Underwood, Alexandra Underwood, Alexandra Elise Underwood
Welcome Back to Diving In, a new series where we sit down and discuss body confidence with inspiring women. In this piece, we sit down with American Model, Alex Underwood. Underwood is not just beautiful but passionate too. She is the founder of The Unwanteds Project, a horse rescue that brings awareness to the abuse that these beautiful animals face. Alex stars in Coco Reef’s newest campaign, Flaunt Your Shape. The campaign focuses on embracing the body positivity movement and encouraging women to show off their bodies. The goal is to show women that being who they are is not only good enough, it’s perfect.
How did you become body positive? What was the journey to accepting and loving your body like?
“I had a really big moment happen in the eighth grade. I’d always had problems making friends with girls growing up and I had recently been invited to hang out with a special group of girls. While hanging out with them, I realized they talked so badly about themselves. I remember listening and thinking, they sound silly! I don’t see any of this. And I didn’t want to sound that way. I guess I made a pact with myself that day – to accept and love myself.”
What advice would you give your younger self?
Stop skipping class! And don’t sweat the small things.
Alexandra Underwood, Alex Underwood, Alexandra Elise Underwood

What is your life motto?
‘Never forget that the pressures of modern life are only a man-made game. You can take a break whenever you wish. It isn’t necessary to stress yourself to the level of those around you. Take nothing as seriously as your universal right to seek peace’
What advice would you give for someone struggling with confidence and body acceptance?

If you’re finding it hard to move past a body issue or hard to gain momentum to your body loving goal… try eliminating the outside influences. For instance: I gave up Facebook five years ago and monthly magazines. I immediately felt relieved. They say you are what you eat but to broaden that- you are what you consume. Give yourself substance in all areas of life. Your self love journey is yours and yours alone.

How do you ‘Flaunt Your Shape?
For me, comfort is everything and comfort equals confidence. Especially when you’re down to your skivvies! I actually prefer to find a nude beach, honestly. When I do find a swimsuit that fits me so well it feels like I’m wearing nothing- that’s a keeper!
