After living, working & sailing in the Caribbean heat for 10 years, I understand what it's like to struggle in the heat and humidity.
You haven't been on vacation for such a long time... but this winter might be your first chance! You deserve to look and feel good on your vacation.
You shouldn't have to worry about feeling uncomfortable in the heat because your cover-ups are synthetic, or be too embarrassed to go for a swim because you don't have the right cover-ups.
After all those years in the Caribbean and most of it on a boat with no air conditioning. I know what it’s like to need clothes that are made specifically for hot, humid days.
I’ve made the mistake of wearing polyester in the tropics and I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. It’s why I started West Indies Wear, to help women just like me not make the mistakes I made.
There’s nothing like wearing the right clothes for the right climate.
"I love my Starfish beach tunic! Roomy, keeps me cool on warm days and even doubles as a great top that I wear out to dinner with a white skirt, shorts or crop pants. I’ve gotten lots of compliments on it and of course I selected it because our Catalina 350 is named ‘Starfish’ and it’s colors are navy and white!"

"My coral colour starfish tunic enjoying the sunshine on beautiful Cable Beach, Australia. Lovely pure cotton beach and resort wear like this is hard to find!"

"Love, love, love, my West Indies Wear! I have been wearing WIW for about 3 or 4 years now, and I just can't get enough of them. I wear them as a cover-up, a top, pants, and sarongs. They are so comfortable, cool, and breezy. I have turned my friends and family on to them, and they are now wearing them too."

This pandemic has had this heavy feeling hanging over you, but now the season feels like its changing and people are starting to travel and even CRUISE again! Maybe its time to plan your Winter vacation!
You deserve to brighten up your life and choose vacation clothings that will make you feel fresh, light and FREE again.
Make the right choice and buy quality cotton cover-ups, that will keep you cool even in the summer heat. You will feel good knowing you made the right choice.
There is nothing good that can come from wearing cheap synthetic clothes that do not breathe. The sweat will stay on your skin, even causing you heat rashes (they're like wearing a plastic bag)
The single most important thing to wear on a tropical vacation is lightweight pure cottons.
You could even go a size bigger than normal, or go with brands that are cut with a more generous fit like ours. Looser clothes are definitely cooler.
There is nothing worse than wearing tight fitting clothing that is made out of synthetic fabrics when it is SUPER HOT.... this will cause you to feel so much hotter, which in turn can cause skin irritations and rashes.
