Hapari’s Tummy Tuk™ bottoms provide extra coverage and support for waistlines. Their cover-ups, swimskirts, swimshorts, and wraps offer extra coverage and extra sun protection. Women can sport one-of-a-kind swimsuits with mix and match bikini or tankini tops paired with mix and match bottoms. Hapari men's styles include board shorts and compression shorts. With Hapari swimwear no one has to choose between great-looking swimwear or a good fit; they can have both.

BagInspiration sells eco friendly bags (and purses) that are made from recycled materials. Several of the bags are perfect for the beach. The Everything Bag is sturdy and well constructed. It's roomy enough inside for a beach towel, sunscreen, a water bottle, snacks, a good book - you name it! Knowing the Everything Bag is constructed from repurposed materials makes it even cooler to carry. Originally designed to be used as life saving seat belts, the polyester material used for BagInspiration bags is of the highest quality.
