Calling All Beach Bums: Have a Look at Hapari's Kickstarter ...

At All Women Stalk, it is often our pleasure to introduce readers to new products and brands that will not just meet but exceed their needs. Winter is creeping up on us, so you might think that this is not the time to consider next year's swimwear needs, but that's because you don't know what Hapari is doing.

You know what it's like to hang out at the beach, swimming and splashing, only to end up with sand down your suit. It's not enough that you're showering sand off of yourself for days, the inevitable rash is the real bummer. That stings! It's even worse when you're a surfer, because the sand and water come at you even more intensely, and let's not even talk about sunburn.

That's where Hapari comes in. The swimwear brand, which is internationally known for great fabrics, flattering styles, and vibrant colors, has launched a Kickstarter campaign that you need to know about if you're tired of sand rashes and sunburns. The campaign is funding Hapari's new rash guards, which fit flawlessly over one-piece suits, bikinis, tankinis, monokinis – you name it.

What really caught my eye here isn't just the rash protection, although that's a dream come true. It's not just that the new rash guards will mix and match perfectly with Hapari's 2015 line, although that's super convenient. It's not just the fabric and stitching, which are designed to slim, shape, and flatter. It's the 50+ UPF rating and the promise to block 98 percent of those damaging, potentially dangerous UV rays that really excite me. It's not often that you come across a beautiful but functional swimwear product that can also save your life.

If you'd love an attractive but practical and sun-shielding alternative to the traditional coverup or the bulky, badly fitting rash guards currently on the market, and if you worry about UV rays when you're out on the beach, we urge you to take a look at Hapari's Kickstarter, which has a goal of $25,000 and ends on Monday, October 27. Is this a crowdfund you'd be interested in?
