For women who aren’t “model thin”, going to the beach or sitting by the pool isn’t always easy. Even with figure-shaping swimsuits, plus-size women often find it difficult to feel confident unless they have the right beach wrap or cover-up. If this sounds like you, then the most flattering way to accent your beachwear is by wearing a plus-size sarong.
Plus size sarongs are also known by other names, such as a pareo, wraparound or beach wrap. In Samoa, they’re called “lava-lava” and in Indonesia they are known as “kain”. Fijian women call them “sulu” and in Brazil they are called a “canga”, but there is one thing they all have in common. They are made from colorful, organic, hand-dyed fabrics that can be wrapped and draped in a way that flatters any woman’s body.
In some parts of the world, pareos are considered much more than sarong beachwear and are worn as more than just a plus size sarong swimsuit cover-up. In Indonesia, parts of Southeast Asia and many South Pacific islands, sarongs are even worn by men. For these islanders, a sarong or pareo can be quite elaborate, and is often worn as ceremonial garb or during festivals and celebrations.
Plus size sarong wraps are available in a variety of fabrics and patterns to suit any taste and match up with any women’s swimsuit. Because they are made in so many different colors and patterns, and can be worn as a skirt, cover-up or dress, women find that they can wear a different plus size sarong on every day of their vacation.
Since it can be much more expensive to buy plus size sarongs at a resort, women find it easier to stock up on Hawaiian sarongs by shopping online before they leave for vacation. For the best selection of beautiful plus-size sarongs and pareos, visit HawaiianSarong.com.
