With Summer quickly approaching, many of us are dreaming of long, lazy days spent at the beach or the pool. (The sun, the seashore…gosh, does it get any better?!) While I love to swim, I absolutely hate wearing a swimsuit. Even a “modest’ one-piece can be very revealing, not to mention unattractive and uncomfortable to wear. Plus, hanging out in a dripping wet suit when I get out of the water is not only yucky feeling, it’s also unhealthy.
A much better solution is a wearable towel. Similar to a poncho, the LOLL towel (aka Lots Of Love Lara, in honor of the Australian designer), is a loose-fitting, soft-feeling delight.
Made from 100% cotton, it zips up both sides, and also has a hood. The plastic zippers are guaranteed not to rust, even if they get wet. I tried it out on a recent vacation, with great results. Not only can it be used as an absorbent cloth, I like to use it as a cover-up. Much better than a tee and shorts, or a sarong, the LOLL is awesome. Instead of feeling self conscious, and worrying about my body being on display—and possibly sunburning, too!—I could lounge on a chair, reading a huge stack of magazines, without a care in the world.
LOLL towels come in a variety of colors and prints. My favorite is called Choppy Ocean, a blue and white combo of zigzag stripes. So cute!
