Ahhh, swimsuit season. The phrase that can strike fear into exhausted mothers everywhere (especially me) who wish they hit the gym a few more times than they actually did. But don’t get me wrong, we’re going to hit up the beach nearly every day this summer if I can help it, so I plan on feeling completely comfortable in what I’m wearing, lest I spend the summer in something too small/revealing/uncomfortable. Ladies, I have found a dream suit, and I have Hapari to thank.
First, however, have you seen their line up this season?? CUTE, CUTE, CUTE!!
These are modest, attractive, stylish, colorful, and affordable. Can’t you see yourself in one of these? This Palm Desert collection is full of such fun colors and prints!
Now being a big-chested girl with a lot of post-baby tummy fluff to keep under control, I was really intrigued by these swim dresses. I figured the long length would keep the fabric from creeping up my waist like tankinis do, and the side ruching would be extremely forgiving. True on both accounts. This is a VERY friendly and flattering cut, in my opinion, especially for curvy women.
I ordered the Black Seaside Tankini and Swimdress ($59) and the Red Tummy Tuk Swim Shorts ($35), again, opting for comfort and containment 🙂
Now pardon my camera phone pictures. I wasn’t about to take the DSLR to the public pool. Would you? My opinion of both these pieces is only complimentary. The 80% nylon/20% spandex blend is both comfortable and thick enough to feel substantial. You can even machine wash this if you wanted. Btw, this top is also available in Plus Size. The shorts are fantastic. They are exactly what I was hoping for in terms of something high-waisted that would hold in my guts. Perhaps an inch shorter on the inseam would make them a little less “motherly” and more trendy, but I couldn’y care less. They are comfortable, supportive, and bright with an excellent fit.
Notice that I wore an extra black bikini top underneath my suit for a little added support, so the straps look much thicker than what is actually attached to the suit. By the way, these straps are removable and interchangeable so that you can wear this as a halter, criss-cross or tank. You could also let out the drawstring and wear this as a longer bandeau dress for, you know, when you get back on your cruise boat and want to hit up the buffet after your swim on the beach. And now…
