Off-Season Swimsuit Shopping

September 30, 2013

hapari-swim3I have mentioned Hapari swimsuits several times before. They are a great option for taller women who like to keep the belly covered. I have a couple of their suits.

I love finding clothes that actually fit my lanky body, but my second favorite shopping thrill is scoring great deals on off-season sales. Right now at Hapari, you can save 60% by using discount code FALL60.

Buy Online: Hapari
Price: Varies, 60% off with code.


40% off Tankinis!

July 22, 2013

hapari-redWe featured Hapari suits a while ago during our swimsuit week. Well, Hapari has a 40% off discount code right now that can be used on regular or sale items!

I just scored this tankini top for $9 smackeroos. You can’t beat that!

Another Tall Tankini

June 25, 2013

hapari-swim2I’m back from slacker-ville! I hope you’re not sick of swimsuit posts yet, because guess what? I took the week off for a family reunion, and three, yes THREE of my tall relatives were wearing swimsuits from Hapari.

One sister-in-law was wearing this one, and it was even cuter in real life than it is in this picture.

Hapari seriously needs to be paying me for how many people I’ve told about them. Or at least send me a couple swimsuits, come on people!

Buy Online: Hapari
Price: $49.00


Albion Swimsuits

June 5, 2013

bigpolka_frontOk, I know swimsuit week is over but I’m going to cheat and add another. I just came across another online shop that has some cute suits with longer looking torsos. It is called Albion.

For some reason I LOVE polka dots right now. From the first picture I wasn’t sure if this is a tankini or one piece. So I looked at the alternate views and zoomed in, and it is two pieces. YAY! It looks like it might be long enough in the torso for us tall ladies. I might need to get me a polka dot suit this summer. They had another cute one with a blousy top too.

Places to Find Tall Swimsuits

June 2, 2013

lime-rickiThe search for tall and long-torso swimsuits has been fun this past week! I have found and heard of several shops that I was unfamiliar with. Some are called “tall” swimsuits, and some are geared toward “modesty”, but give tall women that extra length we’re looking for.

Here are some of the sites that may have possibilities for tall swimwear:

Divinita Sole (Lots of great options for tall ladies. I bought one last year, and it was plenty long for my 6’1″ frame. The site is a bit weird, the suits are not cheap, and shipping is double what it should be. But if you can live with those drawbacks, the suits are great. The fit and quality- at least on the suit I bought, were great.)

Hapari (Has lots of cute tankinis, some look long and some have rouched sides that are adjustable.)

Lime Ricki (My niece bought a suit there last summer, and it was super cute. The pictures on their site threw me off, because the model looks about 14. I had to double check sizing to make sure they were women’s sizes, but they are.) The suit pictured above is from Lime Ricki.

rey-swimwear-hollyRey Swimwear also has some retro looking suits that look like they run long. I thought this black tankini top (to the left) was unique and cute.

Long Tall Sally has a few suits, and tall is their specialty. But some of the tankinis look awfully short on the models, don’t you think? So maybe the bust placement will be good, but not sure about torso length.

Downeast Basics (They have only a couple tankinis that look long enough. Most look barely long enough for the models, so I’m sure they wouldn’t cover me.)

Shade used to have a decent selection of long suits, but when I searched swim on their site it looks like the little bit of swimwear they have left is on clearance. Maybe they are discontinuing swimwear? 🙁 Bummed.

Popina is a site I came across with retro suits, but I don’t know much about them.

Old Navy does have a couple “tall suits” but they don’t look very promising (at least if you care about torso length, I can’t speak for the bust placement). I haven’t had much luck with Old Navy or Gap when it comes to tall swimsuits.

Where have you found luck with tall swimsuits? If you find a great swimsuit for tall women, please let us know in the comments. For the rest of you, good luck in your search!


Adjustable Swimsuit for Tall Women

June 1, 2013

hapari-swimHapari is another company that has “modest” swimsuits that are a great option for tall women, or those who have a long torso. My almost 6’0″ tall sister-in-law bought this one, and loves it!

The sides are rouched, which gives you room to adjust the length. I love this feature, because you get to control the amount of coverage and it’s slimming too. The reviews are good on this one too. The smaller chested women (hello friends!) all raved about the ruffles, because they accentuate the chest and make it look a bit bigger. And who doesn’t love that? Don’t answer that. It also says there are four ways to tie the top.

Buy Online: Hapari
Price: $49.00 for the top (different options for bottoms)


Tall Racer Back Swimsuit

May 30, 2013

sally-racer-swinsuitFortunately, it is getting a bit easier to find tall options for swimsuits. But I haven’t seen many sporty racer-back suits in tall sizes.

If you’re looking for a tall sporty swimsuit, it is your lucky day! Long Tall Sally just got a new one.

Buy Online: Long Tall Sally
Price: $65.00


Tall Maternity Swimwear

May 29, 2013

Looking for tall maternity swimsuits is like trying to find a needle in a haystack! So instead of searching for tall maternity swimsuits, I started searching for maternity tankinis with two criteria.

1. They have to look pretty long on the model, meaning they might just be barely long enough on us tall chicks.

2. The shoulder straps have to either be adjustable, OR be halter style and tie behind the neck. That gives us a bit of control if we need to lengthen the straps and lower the bustline a bit.

Have you had any luck finding tall maternity swimsuits?  Check out this one from A Pea in the Pod. Cute huh?

Lands End Swimwear Sale!

May 27, 2013

lands-end-swimI mentioned a long time ago that I was impressed with Land’s End and their quality of swimwear. They are great about standing behind their products. The bad news was, their style was not quite up to par.

Fortunately, they have improved in that area. A lot of their suits are still very basic, but they do have some cute suits this year! They are 40% off through May 28, and shipping is free on orders over $50. See details here.

This particular suit comes in four colors, and doesn’t come in tall sizes. But the top looks longer than average so it may work anyway. Land’s End does have a whole page of tall (they call them “long”) suits here.

Buy Online: Land’s End
Price: $35.40 (through Tuesday, using promo code “REMEMBER”)


Modbe Swimwear for Tall Women

May 26, 2013

modbe-swimI’m on the hunt for tall swimwear this week! Modbe is another company that targets women searching for “modest” swimsuits. Bonus for us tall girls, that usually means more length in the tankini tops.

Modbe has paired with Downeast Basics, and sells a handful of cute suits on their site.

Buy Online: DownEast Basics (Modbe)
Price: $39.99 (bottoms sold separately)
