Ashley Sky & Catey Ball to model for Hapari's swimwear
Oct '11
After three months, 135 entries, and thousands of “Likes,” Hapari Swimwear announced over the weekend that Ashley Sky and Catey Ball have been chosen as winners in the company's model search contest. The selection comes after the swimwear company gave its fans on Facebook a chance to choose which finalist they preferred.

Beginning on July 27, 2011, round one of the contest asked contestants to send in their best swimsuit photos, which were then placed on Hapari's Facebook page. Each contestant in this round was responsible for promoting her own photo in an effort to garner “Likes” and comments. After two months, three finalists were selected—the winners plus Julianna Burrows—and fans were once again asked to choose which woman they thought should be the new model for the swimwear company.

Each finalist received a significant amount of fan support, with Ball and Sky receiving more than 1000 “Likes” apiece. In the end the contest was so close between the two winners that Hapari decided to select both women as models. Each winner will receive a trip to the Florida Keys to take part in the company's 2012 photo shoot as well as a payment of $2500.

Hapari specializes in creating colorful tankinis, bikinis and plus size swimwear for real women, and the company used the model search contest in an effort to reach out to new fans and bring attention to its shape-saving swimwear.

“We couldn't have been happier with the participation of our customers and fans and the outcome of the competition,” said John Curry, co-owner of Hapari. “We hope everyone is as excited as we are to see Catey and Ashley on our website styling our 2012 swimwear line.”

Hapari International, LLC makes swimsuits, bikinis and long tankinis that are stylish and comfortable for all body types, enhancing the curves women want while hiding those they don't. The versatile swimwear can be mixed and matched with any top and bottom so that women get the perfect fit.

The company began when two designer mothers took their dissatisfaction with women's swimwear and turned it into a passion. Hapari's swimwear has body-shaping secrets that enhance the female figure and allow every woman to feel confident and beautiful in her swimsuit.
