LETS DIVE INTO THE TWO PIECE SWIMSUITS!
Hookipa Top and Pipeline Bottoms
First off, we have the Hookpia Top and Pipeline Bottoms, both in a size small. This pattern is called Whipsy Palms! It is a beautiful green palm leaf pattern and I am a SUCKERRR for palm leaves! The size small for both of these fits me perfect! My sizes are listed below for you for referrence. The Hookipa top is a simple triangle top with a tie in the back and around the neck. The best part about this top is that it is styled so that you can wear it 6 different ways! YESSS 6 DIFFERENT WAYS!!!! How can you pass up a bikini thats basically a 6 in 1, you are totally getting WAY MORE for your money! The Pipleline bottoms have the cutest woven detailing on the hips adding a extra flair to the bikini! They hug your hips perfect so you dont have to worry about them sliding down or even worse coming off in the ocean after waves crash into you!
Kaanapali Top aand Paia Bottom
Next Up, we have the Kaanapali Top in a medium and the Paia Bottoms in a size small and in the pattern White Hibiscus! This two piece swimsuit is perfect for laying out in the sun on the beach and getting a nice tan! The Kaanapali Top naturally runs small which is why I bought it in a medium, for more coverage on the girls, while still being small enough for minimal tan lines! The Kaanapali top has a fixed back with a simple clasp and adjustable straps providing as little or extra support as you need! Moving to the bottoms the Paia bottoms are super minimal and sit up high waist which you know I LOVE!! These bottoms scrunch so you can make them small for less coverage or bigger for more coverage and that goes for the front and the back. The sides are self tying so you can adjust and determine where you want them to sit and how tight you want it to be! This one I definitely dont recommend going swimming in since it is very minimal coverage, definitely more for laying on the beach to get a tan!
Paia Top and Ehukai Tie Bottoms
As seen in my instagram Bikini photos, we have the Paia Top in a medium in the color creamsicle and the Ehukai Tie Bottoms in a size small in the pattern Birds of Paradise! I love the mix and match of this color and pattern pair together, they compliment eachother so well! The Paia top is definitely more of a sporty style top! This one has fuller coverage in the front, hence why I sized to a medium, I wanted this one to be more of an active sporty top that I could wear swimming or laying on the beach! The cross tie in the back is the cutest little flair to a simple top! The Ehukai Tie Bottoms are also a perfect sporty option to have, you don’t have to worry about these bottoms going anywhere! They sit nice and snug on your hips and have the ties on the side to give you more or less support if needed! The Birds of paradise pattern is to DIE FOR! The intricacy in detail and colors in this pattern are insane!! I have never seen a company put so much thought into the detailing of a pattern! I love the color contrasts of the oranges and blues, it’s definitely my new favorite color combo and forsure one of my new favorite two piece swimsuits.
Hookipa Top and Koki Bottoms
Lastly, we have the Hookipa Top in a size small and in the pattern Turqouise Hibiscus paired with the Koki bottoms in a size small and in the color Turqoiuse. I love this combination of pattern and color. I use to be strictly a match swim suit girly but that has CHANGEDDD after being introduced to Pakaloha! The Hookipa top is the same one as we talked about before with the potential to wear 6 different ways. I mean COMMMMMON what more could you ask for?! It provides great support and im just really here for it!! The Koki bottoms I got in a size small and they hug my hips perfectly!! They’re a minimal coverage bottom but sit perfectly high waist which you know I LOVEEEE!
