Default Swimsuit Cover-Up

Hi all! My dh & I leave for our 1st cruise on the 12th....2 more weeks!!!! I started working out (not for the cruise) in July & have lost 40 lbs as of 10/1. I only weigh myself 1 time monthly. Anyway, I have lost 3 sizes & now none of my swimsuits fit. I did get a new one this weekend for the cruise but I don't have an appropriate cover-up. No stores around here have them & I am having a hard time finding one on-line. Can anyone recommend an on-line store? I would like all black or white & it needs to got to at least my knees so that I can go somewhere on the ship besides just the pool. I have tried the usuall stores.....Macy's, Dillards, JcPenney, Sears, Neiman Marcus & can't find a thing. Any suggestions? I'm desperate & probably need to order in the next day or so. Thanks all!

I too have lost over 40 lbs and ordered my suit and cover-up from QVC.
Love Love Love the suit. Best fit I have ever had.
Good luck.

Try Roaman's or Lane Bryant... they have smaller sizes as well as large sizes...
Congrats on the weight loss.

Have had the most fun with these coverups on cruises. They fit almost anyone. Mine is the bikini, checkered flag design.

You did good with the weight loss!
