This multi-tasking towel doubles as a cover-up.

Simple Sarongs Review

Price and Where to Buy Simple Sarongs: Available on Amazon and


  • Truly one-size-fits-all, with multiple buttonholes sarong for different sizes
  • Comes in fun prints
  • Thinner than normal beach towels, so that they dry quickly and are lightweight
  • Can be worn around the hips, waist, or chest
  • Easy to use
  • 100 percent cotton


When worn around the waist, the sarong may hang too low for shorter people

How Simple Sarongs Rates:

  • Usefulness: 10/10. It’s like wrapping a towel around yourself, but will actually look good and stay in place
  • Value: 8/10. It’s not a bad deal, since you’re getting a towel and a cover-up for the same price
  • Portability: 10/10. You’ll lighten your load by only carrying one product instead of a separate towel and cover-up
  • Cool Factor: 9/10. The prints and bright colors in the Simple Sarong collection are pretty cool

Final Verdict: If you hate carrying a bunch of stuff to the beach or pool, invest in a Simple Sarong to downsize (and still look good).
