"I can basically sum it up by saying this; I walked in wanting one bikini, and walked out with three full suits.. I just couldn't decide I loved them all!  The new material Manakai Swimwear went with is very sturdy and secure feeling, and hugs ya in all the right ways. Also digging the new colors. When you walk in with one color in mind and walk out with two colors you would have never pictured yourself loving so much.. you know you have a quality product!  On top of the fit, colors, and feel.. owner Kelley is always awesome to chat with, and gives a kind, honest opinion.. you walk out feeling great and re-charged.  Thank you ladies for the hard work in getting us some of the nicest reversible suits around! Buy local, support your community, and take care of our earth with recycled products! Shop Manakai!"  -Kim Spack

"Feminine, versatile, chić ... & most importantly recycled... I asked owner Kelley Chapman for specifically active ocean wear & she delivered. I chose to go with a "pink" top & "green" bottoms in the lotus print to give me more reversible options & I couldn't be more psyched... it's been great in the recent swell at Honolua Bay! Mahalo Manakai for your eco conscious efforts towards our environment & for empowering our female magnificence!"  -Ashley Davis

"I love love love my Manakai one-piece bathing suit! It looks and feels so good--it feels like quality. It is a true reversible swimsuit--like having two suits in one. But most of all what I love about Manakai, even more than their high quality swimwear are the philosophy and ethical practices of this company. They use material made from recycled ocean plastic and they know the manufacturers personally. In this time when environmental regulations are being gutted it is so inspiring and comforting to know that there are companies out there that actually made a positive impact on the environment.  ♡♡♡"  -Gena Sansone

"Every time I put on my Manakai Swimwear I don't just feel like a beautiful fairy goddess because of how perfectly the suit looks and feels, I feel good because I know how much aloha and work is put into these lovely sustainable pieces. Each piece is made out of repurposed plastic.  These girls are aware of our impact on the earth and keeping it beautiful. And when the earth is beautiful the people in it are too! I will support Manakai any day. Love you girls" ♡♡ -Maria Sadusky

"I ordered an eco conscious swimsuit online through the website and experienced an amazing level of customer service and care. The owner called me to inform me that they were out of the particular item I ordered, but she would honor the price for a different style. She was prompt, kind, and went above and beyond to connect with me to ensure I was satisfied with my purchase!  I received my suit in the mail with a hand-written note!  Not to mention the suit fits super well, is beautifully made, the fabric is shiny and the cut is smokin. Can't wait to wear it.  Thank you Manakai - more than glad to support local when local is this stellar :)  Aloha!"  -Nicki Silverman
