Bikini season can be quite traumatic. First there's the panic bikini diet, then there's choosing a bikini you actually like they may even be flattering, then there is making sure you've covered every bit of uncovered flesh in sun cream and then, only then, can you actually make your way to the beach/park/pool!
This year there are plenty of cover-ups on offer to assist the trauma, not just kaftans. There are dresses, hareem pants, playsuits, maxi dresses and skirts!
