Beach, Sand, Sun, we have a love-hate relationship. Over the years, the combination has bronzed me, burned me, sprinkled me with freckles and given more than one person in my family a melanoma scare. But as someone who was raised in Texas and now lives in South Florida, avoiding the Beach, Sand or Sun is like telling a fish to stop swimming- or a bird to stop flying. Not happening.
Thankfully, there's Cover.
Lisa Moore made her mark in the swimwear industry when she founded cover in 2007. She was the first to recognize the need for stylish sun protective clothing for women of all ages. 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 was launched, Lisa’s 23-year-old sister was diagnosed with melanoma. Thankfully the tiny black dot was caught and removed early. Since that time, the cover mission has shifted from being focused purely on fashion and beauty to include promoting health. The cover collection includes chic, innovative pieces that provide physical sun protection in the most flattering silhouettes.
Cover is committed to supporting fashion manufacturing in the United States. Lisa’s design studio and corporate offices are located in Dallas, Texas. The cover garments are cut and sewn in Los Angeles, California.
