Week 3- Swimsuit Season
I can't wait to spend my Hawaii vacation on the beach. In order to do that I need a good and cute suit. Between surfing in Hawaii and just regular swim days with the kids, I need something I am not having to adjust as well. Whether I'm paddling for the perfect wave or have kids pulling on me at the pool I don't want to worry about exposing myself.
I knew exactly where I needed to go for a swimsuit, Hapari. Hapari was started by some women who lived in the same neighborhood as my mom. They wanted swimsuits that were, "Both flattering and stylish." They have not only cute, but good quality suits. I knew Hapari would have something I would feel confident wearing, and not unashamed to share pictures of.
I tried on one of their new drawstring tankini's. They are so versatile, it's like 2 suits in one. I really liked them and almost went with a fun black and white one. They said they are selling like crazy, so get them while they still have your size.
I ended up getting this swimsuit. They have all different styles and fabrics, but this one was perfect for what I wanted. I almost thought I was going to have to buy 2 suits, but this is cute and practical all at once. I felt comfortable and confident. Then they have all different mix and match bottoms. I chose the hot shorts just so I didn't have to worry about adjusting.
My sweet friend who has worked there since they opened was there. She, as well as the other staff, were so helpful. She came to my rescue in more ways than one ;) Not only did she help with a fussy baby, but helped getting the right fit and making suggestions for my goals. It was nice to have knowledgeable people help find the right size, and have awesome customer service. An unfortunate rarity today. If you are looking for the right suit for summer, like their Facebook page. They have specials and deals posted on there all the time. Spend the money to get a stylish good quality suit! It is so worth it.
After my shopping experience I went to show my husband at his office. The office assistant loved it so much she had to go check it out herself. She went and got a new suit the same day, she loved them so much! The last time I went surfing was years ago. I am looking forward to breaking in my new swimsuit. I think we are going to try out one of those indoor surfing places. Pictures of my suit and surfing experience soon to come.
