Have safe sun – we've got you covered.
Lisa Moore made her mark in the swimwear industry when she founded cover® sun conscious 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 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 2012, Lisa launched cover® sun conscious swimwear®, 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 "sunsuits" 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 a must 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 a single Los Angeles factory that Lisa helped start. Lisa’s consultancy to help other brands in their supply chain journey can be found at fashionproductionconsulting.com.
SWIM JERSEY® is cover's own specially constructed fabric made of highly opaque recycled microfibers. The UPF 50+ certification means that it blocks 98% of UV rays. Since the protection is physical (not chemical), cover will keep you covered, even with daily wears and washes. Get your cover sunsuit damp, and it will actually keep you cool under the hot sun. Our patterns and artist prints are also made in Los Angeles via eco-friendly, zero-waste sublimation heat transfer printing.
We size in line with clothing not with the rest of the swimwear market. Please order the size you would choose in a bodysuit or fitted t-shirt. Our bathing suits are more fitted than the swim t, so you might want to size down in the swim t if you are looking for a more body-conscious fit. We make everything with longer sleeves and slightly longer bodies. If you are between sizes, order based on height. We suggest considering sizing down if 5'5" or shorter and sizing up if 5'8" or taller.
We spent about two years in R&D looking to build in support but weren't happy with the trials. Lisa actually swims in her best fitting nylon bra, as she says it provides her favorite shape and best support. We recommend you do that same if you need support. It works perfectly so just #layerit.

There is a slight variation on fit depending on style. Specifically, our swimsuits are more fitted than our swim ts and coverups. We size all swimwear as clothing, so please do not size up from your normal clothing size. If you want a tight fitting swim t for active swim, you could actually size down one. If you are in between measurements, size down if you are petite and up if you are taller.
