11 best bathing suit cover-ups 2020: target haul

May 25, 2020

I feel like a broken record at this point by saying this at the beginning of all of my blog posts (like THIS one and THIS one), but here’s the deal. I understand that this summer is going to probably for sure look different than all of the other summers we’ve had before. And that may mean that you aren’t going to step foot near a pool or beach, and may never even put on a bathing suit.

But based on my social media feed, half of my friends are currently at the beach, neighborhood pool, country club, etc. right now, so this post about bathing suit cover-ups couldn’t be more timely, and I’m going to press on by giving yall the good finds! And if you are none of those places (like me, lol) anyone can sunbathe in their yards/a park, and a new cover-up did almost make me feel like I was at a resort (no it didn’t, but a girl can dream HA)!

feelin’ hot hot hot!

I got all of these cover-ups at Target and let’s go over what I love about Target:

  • Free delivery for orders more than $35
  • Free drive up (order online and pickup without going in the store)
  • Free delivery (with Shipt membership) OR pay $9.99/order
  • 5% off total order with Red Card (which if you have the debit one is amazing because it isn’t a monthly credit card where you have to pay the bill. It’s connected to your bank acct and the money gets debited like your debit card). You get SO MANY PERKS with your Red Card, including free shipping always, no minimum purchase required! Amongst a million other perks! Seriously, I’ve saved THOUSANDS of dollars with it!
  • I always suggest ordering online, to ensure they don’t sell out, and then picking up your stuff or having it delivered, even if you love to browse the store. But I know many people aren’t mindlessly browsing Target these days anyway.

Here are my stats:
Size Large 10/12/14
(depends on the brand)
Size 30/31 in jeans
38D bra
Size 9 shoe
(has nothing to do with the try-on, but peeps are always curious)

I did a full try-on over on my Insta-stories, so if you want to see the cover-ups move on my body, you’ll find them in the highlight bubble titled “Target Cover-Ups!” HERE, AND it will make sense why I’m posed the way I am in some of these pics lol!

Here’s how to find what you want! Click on the purple title of the item above the picture I attached to get to Target’s site! That way if you click on the pics to see them bigger, it won’t take you to Target. I think that helps yall, instead of embedding the link in the pics?! LMK!

I think that’s it! If you have any questions, let me know in the comments, or heck, let me know which one you loved! Also, I hope it goes without saying, and I’d think it’s obvious, but I don’t retouch ANY of my photos, or alter my body at all. I didn’t even add the Paris filter. No photoshop EVER. This is just me. 🙂

but wait, there’s more!

Last thing: I already did my Amazon bathing suit round-up for 2020, but there was a suit in there that some of yall are sleeping on, and I think it’s because you didn’t love the print I picked. And that’s okay! I REALLY wanted this red stripe one from the JUMP, but they didn’t have it in my size, so that’s why I ordered the red leopard one. Anyway, I’ve been watching for it to come back in stock because I love the cut/fit so much, and maaaaaybe I ordered a couple more prints too?! 😉 I just HAD to show yall how good this suit was, and I know in these new prints/color combos, you’ll get it now! So here they are…tell me they aren’t great! You can head to my highlight bubble on IG “swimsuits ’20” to see my full try-on, or skip to the end to see these three newest ones on my body in action!

    About Me

    Hey Peeps!

    I'm Miranda, and I'm formerly lots of things (I sold dumpsters, fro-yo, and car parts to name a few), but most recently I was a cakery owner of Got What It Cakes. I'm a mom of two daughters whom I call my "minis,” and the wife to Joshua, whom I call "Stud" (yes, he's even in my phone under that name). Most days you can find me oversharing about my insane life on my InstaStories, in a segment I call "carpool confessions." Follow along as I decide what to be when I grow up, while I navigate my other love, the queen city of Charlotte! I also tend to go by "Mayor Miranda," and am awaiting my key to the city ;) Read More

    xo, Miranda
