Even though the weather is starting to get blessedly cooler and summer is saying goodbye for the year, it's never a bad time to invest in a great new swimsuit. After all, many of us are members of organizations like the YMCA, (or comparable places) and these great family institutions often offer year round swimming in their indoor, olympic sized pools! I remember being a kid in chilly North-Eastern Ohio and going swimming at "The Y" and the Natatorium in the dead of winter. It was definitely a lot of fun and even made me forget about the feet of snow and icy winds that awaited us once we left the warm, heated water.
And for many lucky families, winter time means vacations to somewhere warm and exotic. Perhaps Florida or the Caribbean, or perhaps even Hawaii! I personally have never been to any of these reportedly fabulous locations, and my family certainly can't afford to visit them any time soon, but I know there are a lot of lucky families that do get to enjoy these vacays during the cooler months. Yep, I'm just a wee bit jealous, haha.
So just because summer may be coming to a close, great swimsuits are still a must have. That's why I was so excited to get the opportunity to review the cute, modest swimwear from Hapari. Hapari offers a ton of fabulous, fashion forward swimwear that is cute enough to get you noticed but modest enough to keep you off of tabloid covers. Their swimwear is perfect for me as a mom because I don't really like letting it all hang out when enjoying the pool with my family. Hapari swimwear is designed to hold everything in the swimsuit where it belongs, while still looking young and fresh.
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 collection:
I'm not a model, so be nice! :)
I was lucky enough to receive the Black Twist Tankini Top and the Black Ruffle Swim Skirt for my review. I realize I don't look at all like the gorgeous models that Hapari employs, so please be kind, haha. I am a REAL woman, at 5'4" and 130lbs. But that's part of what I love about Hapari. While they have stunning, thin models showcasing their swimwear, these items CAN be worn by real, normal sized women. I absolutely love the fact that tops and bottoms are sold separately and can be mixed and matched to find the perfect suit for each individual's needs.
Personally, I am quite busty, and I found that the Black Twist Tankini Top provided a ton of support and just the right amount of coverage. It was still sexy, as the bust is emphasized by the elegant twist design, but it didn't over-expose my "girls". This is a huge plus, since I don't always like my goods being on display, especially when I am around family. This top is also extremely well constructed, features lined cups, and is comfortable to wear. It stays in place perfectly, even when wet, and will never go out of style. Just think of it as a go-to LBD (little black dress) of your swimwear wardrobe: Always sassy, always classy, and absolutely timeless.
I also loved the Black Ruffle Swim Skirt from Hapari. This is a short, flirty mini with built in bottoms. This is NOT your Grandma's swim skirt, ladies! I love it because one of my problem areas is my backside. What's the problem, you might ask? Well, to put it bluntly, I don't have a butt. Not much of one, at least. Sadly, I am not nearly as blessed in the derriere department as Kim Kardashian, and I don't like my behind to be visible. This adorable little swim skirt is the perfect solution! It is short enough to be fun and young looking, and still keeps my "no-butt" comfortably concealed. Again, the quality was unsurpassed. These bottoms are comfortable, well made, and definitely are a must have in my humble opinion.
I love that Hapari swimsuits are made with REAL women in mind. A couple years ago, I would have never dreamed of even putting on a bathing suit. I do not have a very positive body image. After having 3 kids, all by cesarean, I am more than a little bit uncomfortable with my body. To put it bluntly, I am extremely critical of myself, and my husband tells me all the time that "my eyeballs are broken." But in my Hapari swimsuit, I have some added confidence, since this swimsuit feels like it was literally made for MY body, imperfections and all. It offers fantastic coverage, great support, all while leaving something to the imagination. I personally could not be happier with this product, and it gets a definite A+++ from me!
I would definitely recommend Hapari swimwear to everyone. These suits are great for women of all ages, shapes and sizes, and even for teens! I know when my daughter is a teen, I am not going to be allowing her to run around in a sexy, body baring swimsuit. Hapari is great for moms who want to give their daughters a fun, trendy swimsuit without putting their bodies on display for the entire world to see. A little modesty goes a long way, in my opinion!
So if you haven't tried a Hapari swimsuit for yourself, what are you waiting for? Head on over and check out their gorgeous swimsuits. I know you'll love them as much as I do!
