You can have the best of both worlds with this versatile, easy-wear staple, and it doesn't have to be limited to just indoor use or as a coverup for swimwear.
After a certain age, a boy may not like having to wear a coverup, so the trick is to find him one that appeals to his individual taste and is comfortable, so that he will be that much more ready to embrace, or at least tolerate, it.
If you'd rather not have your body on show all the time, want to protect yourself from the sun, or just need something to slip into when you're going between pool, bar and café, a sarong, swim dress or other coverup is ideal.
When you're on vacation and you're moving from the beach to a restaurant, you want to be able to throw a coverup on your child and go, without having to think too hard about whether she look presentable.
If you're looking for a coverup to go with your OP bikini or one piece, choose something in a more neutral color such as black, cream, or white so that you don't have too many clashing colors.
