Remember those summer days from your childhood when you put on a swimsuit at 9am and were still wearing it at 9pm? You rode bikes to the neighborhood pool, went to a friends house, had lunch at the snack shack, accidentally (on purpose) ran into your crush at the park, swam some more and found enough change for a snow cone, all before your mom called you home for dinner. At age 12, that swimsuit was the most functional item in your summer wardrobe.
We may not be 12 anymore, but the fun and functionality of those summer swimsuit days still feels right. So we took some of our favorite swim pieces and reimagined them in our favorite dry land fabrics so we can still get that fun and functional feel without wearing a damp swimsuit all day (and without listening for mom to call us home for dinner).
We’ve been touting the high impact support and no-dig comfort of the Hana swim top forever, so after years of letting it stand in as a sports bra, we made it official. The brand new Hana Talora top features the same flattering silhouette and strong support of it’s beachy predecessor, crafted in buttery soft Talora fabric for all-day comfort no matter what dry land activities you’re tackling.
We knew we were onto something with the Hana Talora, and we just couldn’t resist bringing the Cruz Rashguard along for the ride too. The new Talora Cruz Top gives you the same adjustable rouching option with side seam drawstrings and the classic mock-neck half zip that have made the rashguard a perennial best seller. The polyester and spandex blend of our signature Talora fabric make it the perfect layering piece as summer inevitably gives way to fall.
Not sure what to pair your Hana Talora and Talora Cruz Top with? We’re obsessed with the new Canyon Leggings in a Talora and Amora blend for a fit that’s snug and flattering while keeping your backside fully and comfortably covered no matter how many down dogs (or washes) you subject them to. A zippered back pocket keeps your stuff safe, too.
Adolescence and summer may be fleeting, but we’re not letting either one slip away without a fight. We’ll just swap out our favorite beach pieces with their athlesiure-minded Talora twins, and treat ourselves to a snow cone before we make our own dinner and call our loved ones home to share it with us.
