Hapari Swimsuit Give-Away!


It's finally here--the day you've all been waiting for--the Hapari swimsuit give-away!

About a month ago, I was lamenting to Ashley that a great swimsuit is so hard to find. I have high standards for swimsuits. After gestating and nursing four babies, the most important thing to me is support for the "girls." Under wire in a swimsuit is the gold standard. But until now, it was extremely hard to find. Ashley introduced me to an online swimsuit retailer called Hapari. They have an entire line of tankinis with under wire (their S.O.S. line.) Look how cute these are:



They also have a retail location in American Fork, Utah. I called my mom a couple weeks ago and she and I ran down there one day. She was just going with me for moral support and to be my Stacy London (to tell me the cold hard truth about whether or not the swimsuits looked good.)

The store is absolutely adorable (the dressing rooms look like cabanas) and my mom ended up buying a swimsuit as well. She got this darling zebra print one:



Yeah--she is almost 60 and she rocks that suit. (She doesn't need under wire!)

I bought this one with the tummy tuck bottoms (I have no shame in admitting that!):



The best part is, they have these darling skirts to wear over the swimsuits as well and everything is mix and match with the tops and the bottoms.





If you are not well-endowed, they have other cute choices. I would have bought this one if I didn't need under wire:



And guess what else? Their suits actually have pockets to slide in silicone inserts (that they sell) if you want to enhance what you already have (this concept is completely foreign to me but it may interest some of you.)



So let's get down to business...The give-away is for a $96.00 gift card to their site.

To enter, just share one of the links below. You can post it on your Facebook wall, tweet it, or blog it. Then come back here and comment on this post with the URL where the link to Hapari can be found. Once this is done, you have entered the give-away!

http://www.hapari.com/
http://www.hapari.com/plus-size-swimwear/
http://www.hapari.com/modest-tankinis/

You can leave an additional comment if you "like" Hapari on Facebook. The contest will end on March 29th. I will pick a winner using random.org. Please leave your email address with your comment so I can contact you if you win. Good luck!

Yes! This seems to be just what I've been looking for! It's posted on my blog. It's private so if I need to "invite" someone else besides you to view it, let me know.

Can't wait to get a bathing suit that doesn't squish out my belly fat!

WHITE said...

I love these suits, I have been preparing Jimmy for a couple of weeks now that I was planning a trip to American Fork to do some serious damage to "his" pocketbook :)

I Blogged,
added a link to Facebook,
and I liked it on FB...

I am not cool enough to tweet or twit about it!

Thanks for setting this up!

Kendra said...

Wow! This is a great giveaway. Now I have to come out of lurkdom, though! I love reading your blog. You always make my day. Thank you!

I added a link on facebook for hapari. Once I figure out how to like them on facebook, I'll do that too. (It just keeps taking me to their homepage when I click on if for some weird reason.)

Thanks for doing this!

Alyse Burt said...

Just bought two suits last month, love them! The tops are long enough and the tummy tuck bottoms are high enough! I added a link on facebook. Thanks Brooke!

Laura B. said...

I have loved Hapari for years. In fact, I have the same zebra suit that Linda bought (great minds think alike!) except i had to get the chicken cutlets to go in it.
Sad...but true!
I also swear by the tummy tuck bottoms. They are magic and no one knows!!!
So, I liked on FB.

Laura B. said...

And I added a link on FB

The Mostess said...

Did a link on FB, and sent a Tweet. I need that suit for Hawaii!! :0

Lesa Ward said...

Just happened on your blog today and found this fun giveaway! YEAH! And I have heard and found over the last bit that we have a lot of mutual friends! Anyway - I put the link on my facebook page!
https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=570939476
Keeping my fingers crossed - would love a new suit! (Might have to run down an get a few anyway!! Thanks!

Jenn J. said...

When I read your blog yesterday and you said you were going to post about the worlds BEST swimming suit, I thought to myself, "She's either talking about Hapari, or she hasn't tried Hapari yet." That's how much I love their suits.

Have you tried their swimming shorts? They aren't frumpy or baggy but still provide coverage and are totally flattering. I can wear my shorts in the pool and not feel like I'm in a frumpy mom suit.

I really hope I win. Like, really really.

Linda said...

Thanks for the props, Brooke - but I'm afraid that I don't look like the model or Laura B in my swimsuit - but it is much better than my other ones! I have the tummy tuck bottoms as well, and I love them!
BTW - thanks for pointing out that I am "almost 60!" I have TWO more years before I hit that landmark, thank you very much!

Jenn J. said...

Funny enough, my friend was asking about suits on facebook and I linked her up to hapari's website, so this worked out perfectly. Another girl totally validated me and agreed with my suggestion. :)

I 'liked' them too. Pick me. :)

Natalie said...

For the LOVE! don't use random.org- just pick me!! You know how I need the girls contained & lifted....not to mention the tummy tuck bottoms!

anyway, I posted the link on my facebook wall.

Natalie said...

p.s. I like Hapari on FB

Terri said...

I have been reading your "blog" for over a year, and absolutely love it - you always make me laugh while reading it.
So where did you and Ashley get the adorable handbags from?
As far as Linda goes, yes she still has a rockin bod which I have always envied even back in the Jazzercise days when she "whipped" my butt into shape. I may actually try the Zebra suit and definitely the tummy tuck bottoms. Maybe then I will have a rockin Linda Bod.

melissa walker said...

I posted on my FB. I really need a cute suit to keep me motivated and also to hide some of my mommy tummy for when I am not so motivated.

I think there would be more interest in the give-away if the silicone inserts were part of the prize...at least that's what I've heard.
