As the weather gets warmer and you start to get pool-ready, you may wonder what the difference is between swimsuit vs swimwear. Well, our experts at HAPARI have you covered. In this blog, we explain the difference between swimsuit vs swimwear so you can best decide what you need to have fun in the sun.

 

Swimsuit Definition

A swimsuit is a tight-fitting piece of clothing designed to be worn in water. Swimsuits are usually made from specialty fabrics like polyester and nylon, and offer a body hugging fit. To fit with your personal style, swimsuits are available in a variety of colors, tropical prints, and variations. For example, you can have a one-piece swimsuit that looks like a single piece of fabric. Or, you can have a two-piece swimsuit with a separate bikini top and bikini bottom, offering you an exposed midriff and back.

 

Swimwear Definition

Swimwear is a category of clothing that can be used in water. Swimwear can include several types of garments, including swimsuits, swim trunks, rash guards, and more. For example, a two-piece swimsuit is considered swimwear, and a rash guard is also considered swimwear.

At HAPARI, we offer quality swimwear to suit any water activity and style. Our one-piece swimsuits are available in solid colors or tropical prints – perfect for water sports or laying by the pool. You can also mix and match to create your own unique swimwear style. Our bikini tops are available in a variety of necklines, from the classic triangle bikini silhouette to a sporty tank midkini top that’s perfect for riding some waves. Pair your favorite top with a pair of our bikini bottoms; take your pick from cheeky shorts, bikini bottoms, tummy tucking shorts, skirts, and more.

Now that you know the difference between swimsuit vs swimwear, it’s time to stay ready for wherever the day takes you! We also offer a selection of chic cover-ups or rash guards. You may be asking, what is a rash guard swimsuit? A rash guard is a type of shirt that is typically worn for surfing or other water sports. Rash guards look like a short-sleeved shirt, and they help protect the swimmer from sunburn, chafing, and other scrapes. Rash guards are often worn over two-piece bikinis to cover the bikini top.

Whatever your style or choice of water activity, HAPARI has something that’s perfect for you!
