Cover Swimwear Is This Summer’s OOTD Must-Have!
Lisa Moore was inspired to create Cover swimwear after a discouraging quest to find a stylish, long-sleeved maillot. While on holiday with her family, Moore dealt with the dilemma of sunburns and the desire to eliminate the need to obsessively reapply sunscreen on the skin to protect from sun damage.
According to the brand’s website, here’s how the story of Cover swimwear goes:
Lisa Moore made her mark in the swimwear industry when she founded cover clothing in 2008. She was the first to recognize the need for stylish sun protective t-shirts and cover-ups for women to wear in and around the water. As a young mother, she spent countless hours in the sun and water protecting her children’s skin, but found limited choices to protect her own.
Just two years after cover was launched, Lisa’s 22-year-old sister was diagnosed with melanoma. Thankfully the tiny black dot was caught and removed early. Since that time, cover has focused on promoting health, as well as fashion and beauty.
In 2013, Lisa launched cover swim, moving the brand more specifically into swimwear by creating the first long-sleeved maillots. The cover collection now includes a full range of chic, innovative pieces that provide physical sun protection in the most flattering silhouettes. Cover bikinis and bra tops are meant for layering underneath sleeved suits and swim Ts. Swim leggings are meant for active cover girls that love to go straight from the pool or ocean to biking, paddle boarding, surfing, boating and running. They are also perfect to layer under ski pants and wear as loungewear anywhere.
Cover is committed to supporting fashion manufacturing in the United States. Lisa’s design studio and corporate offices are located in Dallas, Texas. All Cover garments are cut and sewn in Los Angeles, California.
Collaborations with American Artists
This season, Moore collaborates with Ashley Hicks, the son of David Nightingale Hicks, a renowned 1960s interior design style maven. The younger Hicks is inspired by his work as an interior and fabric and furniture designer and is looking into the prospect of marrying the aquatic textures in the design world to create original Cover swimwear.
If you’re ready to go shopping for your own Cover swimwear piece, the entire collection is available here and at major retailers, including Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Shopbop.
