Now that nicer weather is on its way (I hope) one of the things I am really looking forward to is getting out with the kids and going to our awesome outdoor water park. It has a couple of great swimming pools, a lazy river, and even some massive water slides. Of course for Sophie and Xander, there are some really fun toddler areas, too!
Of course going to the water park also means squeezing myself into a swim suit. Yuck. I have some pretty major body image issues, especially since having kids, and I dread bathing suit season. It seems that most bathing suits are either way too revealing for a woman in her 30's, or they just don't flatter anyone except for those "stick insect women" that grace the covers of magazines. Sigh... So while I am excited and looking forward to doing all the things that summer in NE Ohio has to offer, I am certainly not thrilled about wearing a swimsuit.
So when I got the opportunity to review the modest swimwear from Hapari, I breathed a sigh of relief. I am already familiar with these super high-quality suits, and I love the fact that they're made for real women who may not have supermodel physiques. (Yes, even those of us with belly pooches and stretch marks!) The folks at Hapari offer trendy swimwear that is cute but also doesn't let everything hang out, if you catch my drift. I feel good wearing Hapari swimwear because I can feel confident and classy without feeling over-exposed.
Hapari offers many different styles of women's swimwear from fun tankinis, cute bikinis and even flattering one pieces. They even have a special lines of Junior's swimwear, as well as great options for men and boys! But that's not all! Hapari even has Plus Sized swimwear and special mastectomy swimwear for those breast cancer survivors out there. So I think it's safe to say, Hapari has something for everyone.
Here are a few of my personal favorites from the Hapari 2014 collection:
My Thoughts :
I received this adorable Red Diamond Dot V-Neck Tankini top and the Dream Blue Drawstring Swim Skirt with Bottom to check out for myself. No, I am not going to blind you by posting photos of me actually in the suit. Not yet, at least. It's still early in the season, and I need a couple of months to hit the treadmill hard before I post anything showing that much skin.
I absolutely love the patriotic color combo in my suit, and the playful diamond dot design is very flattering. The V-Neck is sexy but doesn't over-expose, if you know what I mean. Same thing goes for the drawstring skirt with bottoms. This completely covers the bum, but is short enough to be quite flirty. My husband absolutely loves them!
And of course, the quality of the materials used is amazing. This is not a thin, flimsy suit like the ones you'd expect to find at huge big-box retailers. (Think Walmart.) Hapari offers suits that will last several years if properly cared for.
Overall, I think Hapari is just amazing. Their suits are very well made, and they're vibrant, fresh, and very comfortable. I am a big fan of tankinis. With Hapari, you can mix and match tops and bottoms, which is also a huge plus for me. I don't like brief style bottoms because I don't want my behind showing, so I love their skirted and sarong options. They're very flattering and not "old lady-ish" in the slightest. That's right...These swimsuits don't look like the dreaded "Mom Suits".
So if you're like me and the idea of wearing a swimsuit doesn't exactly make you jump for joy, be sure to check out the modest swimwear at Hapari. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised!
