Well Suited


Some things you’d never ask for a supermodel’s advice on…

Finding a date.
Fitting into your skinny jeans.
Quantum physics.

And some things you would.
Like buying a bikini.

Especially when the model is Hawai‘i-born, three-time Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition veteran Tori Praver, who grew up on the beaches of Maui and has spent more of her life in bikinis than in regular clothes.

All those hours logged at photo shoots means Praver knows a thing or two about suits that stay put when you run, jump, or strike a pose, as well as which cuts and designs offer the most comfort and support, and which bikinis really play up your assets.

She combined all the best elements into her own super chic bikini line, Tori Praver Swimwear. The seven styles range from twist-front tanks and pleated triangle tops to ruched halters and gold-hardware-adorned bandeaus. All of them are mix-and-matchable with a variety of sexy, shirred-style bottoms for the perfect fit.

Launched earlier this year, Praver’s suits were stocked only in a handful mainland boutiques – but now, they’ve landed on Hawai‘i’s shores at Maggie Coulombe in Lahaina.

Our expert advice: you’ll want to snag one before they’re gone.

Tori Praver Swimwear is available at Maggie Coulombe, 505 Front Street, Lahaina, 808.662.0696. To see the whole collection, visit  www.toripraverswimwear.com.
