Before I Hit The Twig: Buy A Sarong!

Sarong As Swimwear Cover
Sarong is a rectangular piece of cloth of varying sizes that can be wrapped in many different ways on the body and can be worn by anyone of any size and shape. It is is popular in tropical climates like the Philippines. It makes great vacation wear. A sarong can be tied in at least 45 different ways and can be worn together to create many different clothing pieces such as swimwear cover ups, skirts, tops, dresses, shawls and scarves. A sarong, in some form, can be worn for practically any occasion.

Sarongs are available in many patterns, colors and fabrics such as pastel mesh net and brightly colored batik prints. Some sarongs have fringes or other trims, although most have plain hems. Silk sarongs are especially luxurious and some can even be worn as wedding dresses.

Sarongs are so versatile that their use need not be limited to clothing as they can also used as a table cloth, wall hanging , furniture cover, beach blanket or curtains.
