Hapari Swimwear Review and #Giveaway

Hapari International
        Alright since I was little I've always had a thing for water.  From the second our pool was open in the spring to the minute it closed for the season, I loved to swim.  I was even on a recreational swim team in the winter month's to keep up with it.  They says it's one of the best forms of exercise you can get which is why I was always such a buff athletic girl.  At one point and time I could even bench press my own weight which I was quite proud of (lol).


        I have the hardest time finding bathing suits for myself OR bras.  When I was younger and only a "DD"  cup I could only find suits when we would vacation in Florida at the beach shops.  But now that I am 32 and after two kids I am a "G/H" it  is nearly impossible to find something appropriate in my size.  I can't run around in a skimpy little bathing suit because I would just plain embarrass myself and of course my kids.  When it comes to swimsuits and bras it seems like companies give up on you after you pass the "D" size.  Like you are required to wear granny bras, mom one pieces, and forget about lingerie.

        Even though I don't swim anywhere near as much as I used to, I always find myself going back to it.  We spend a lot of our time in the summer here outside by the pool aka "office" and I even though I am in constant struggle with my weight, I still try to keep up with the latest bathing suit styles.  One of the companies I have been dying to try for the longest time, has been Hapari.

        Thankfully I recently came in contact with a part of the Hapari team and they allowed me to pick out a swimsuit for review this Summer season.  It truly gave me a chance to see all the amazing styles they have for every shape person.  I was even surprised to see they carried suits for men and boys as well!  Their swimsuits are super cute AND appropriate for the curvier girls like myself.  You would have thought I was picking out a car, it took me forever to choose between all the styles.

        I ended up picking out two awesome sports tankini's (mix and match set) with a swim skirt coverup which I actually feel comfortable wearing out of the safety of my bedroom!  I immediately tried on the top of the bathing suits to find (YES!) they actually fit.  My tatas were appropriately supported, not hanging out or drooping down to my belly button.  I didn't have a uniboob or four because of extra cleavage...needless to say I was thrilled.

        Not only do these fit great and hold me in, they are extremely comfortable and fit true to their size.  One of the styles is a little more flashy for those times I am feeling a bit more confident and the other looks sexy but appropriate for my age and size.  I can still sit on the side and catch a tan in it without feeling self conscious or like I am in a "mom" swim suit.

        "Distinctive and beautiful, Hapari swimwear is designed to enhance a woman's natural beauty — no matter her shape.  At Hapari, we believe that every woman deserves a fit that will flatter her figure because you should look and feel great while having fun in the sun. And that is why our swimwear is created from the finest fabrics and with body-shaping features to help you feel comfortable and confident!"

Cost/Available to purchase:  $Prices Vary depending on style and sales 
Recommendation:  I think their prices are definitely reasonable especially with the amazing variety they provide.  I recommend checking these guys out if you've got a pool for sure, are planning a vacation or just because.  Beyond even all these great qualities, their models look like like real women which makes anyone feel confident in their purchase!
