Swimsuit Help

Hannah Hart Beat

Help me, Hart Beat! In a little less than a month, my mom and I are going on our annual trip to the sun. The tradition started my first winter in New York when I was having a hard time in the dark city. My doctor recommended some vitamin D so my mom and I hopped on a plane to the Carribean. Four years later we’re continuing the tradition.

Like last year, we’re going down to the Pacific coast of Costa Rica where I can get my surf on and my mom can get her reading on. Last year I invested in a great bathing suit from Hackwith Design House. I love it so much but this year I need something a little more secure in the chest area for my surfing days.

I’ve tried so many suits over the years and as someone with a large chest, there are two things that make or break a bathing suit. One, it has to have an underwire. And two, it’s best if there’s some kind of tie aspect. That way you can make it as tight as you want on the shoulders or on the back. For years I wore a few from Victoria’s Secret that I loved but I’ve noticed in the last few seasons haven’t been as well made.

So I need your help, Hart Beat! Do you busty (or non-busty) ladies out there have any brand recommendations to pass along?

Costa Rica Planning: Part I

La la la Hart Beat. This month my mom and I are taking a break from chilly New England and New York City and heading south for a week. Instead of heading to the Caribbean where we have gone the past few years, we’re heading even further south and going to Costa Rica. I went to the country for about a month in high school but since I was there for school, I spent the entire time in San Juan and never actually made it to the beach. When my mom asked if I wanted to go now and see the ocean my response was immediately YES YES YES.

In preparation I have a couple of posts for ya but this first one is about a new bathing suit line that I ordered for the trip. Are you familiar with Hackwith Design House?

I can’t remember when Hackwith Design House first got on my radar but when last year they announced the debut of their Swim I was up in arms happy. This winter I decided that my five year old Victoria’s Secret bathing suit was finally ready to be retired and in it’s place I decided to splurge and order the knot top and the high waisted black and white panel bottoms.

I love them so much, Hart Beat. They fit exactly to size and are so flattering. I remember seeing a few people over the summer on the Cape with high waisted bathing suit bottoms and let me tell you, they are in real life amazing too! I’m not ready to start posting bathing suit photos of me here on ye old blog so I’ll have to let some of the models from Hackwith do the talking for me. I’m so smitten in fact that I think I might order another top like this crazy cool front and back two-in-one top that is new for this winter season.
