pualani 2008 collection

key lime

in only a few short years, the fit of pualani hawaii bikinis has become legendary among waterwomen (and movie stars) who prefer to focus on the waves and not readjusting their swimsuit every few minutes. the secret is a four-way stretch fabric imported from europe that allows pualani swimwear to move with you yet still retain its shape.

the 08 collection is now out in a tempting mix of solids and patterns as well as the introduction of a chic reversible design that is sure to win new fans for its appealing versatility.  

reversible black & creme * convertible top * tattoo

safari cat

the mix and match pieces are available in a variety of cuts allowing you to minimize or maximize coverage as you please. since pualani was last featured, a keiki collection has been added and last year designer iwalani isbell opened the doors to pualani's flagship boutique on the gold coast of waikiki.

shop online, click over to the stockist list, or stop by pualani's waikiki outpost:

  • where: 2863 kalakaua avenue, suite 2 (at the new otani kaimana beach hotel)
  • shop hours: mon to sun, 10a to 7p

pualani hawaii


since summer solstice is only a few days away we're hitting the beach this week! well, in a virtual way at least.

if you're like most every other person on earth, you know that shopping for a new swimsuit can be an unpleasant experience. a few years ago, my wonderful wedding photographers (and wave warriors) gave me a tip about pualani hawaii. (okay, they also shot the catalog. did i mention how talented they are?)

big island native iwalani isbell's homegrown swimwear line has been getting a lot of buzz since cameron diaz was snapped sporting a pualani bikini a few years back. the pualani line has been designed to work in the water so definitely take a peek if you have been searching for a cute, super comfy and functional swimsuit.
