Everyone has a 6-pack, and it’s up to your diet to show them. The shape of your abs will be dependent on your genetics and shape of your torso. Some women have more obliques, and others have a more prominent midsection with defined blocks. To lose weight, you need to be in a calorie deficit. Calories in versus calories out. You can create this through tracking macros or through a meal plan.

Running is great, but your primary goal should be lifting, especially compound lifting. Make lifting your main focus with cardio as an additional way to burn excess fat. You should not be living on a treadmill though to reach your goals.

Off Shoulder Trend

Shade Off Shoulder Trend

The off-shoulder (also known as cold-shoulder) trend has been making waves for a couple of seasons now and – much to our delight – it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. One of the main reasons for this stickiness, which such few trends can achieve, is the fact that this silhouette is universal; it looks absolutely amazing on every woman, regardless of her body shape and size.

Shade Off Shoulder Trend

And like most popular fashion trends, the off-shoulder style has made its way into the world of swimwear as well. You can find it on everything from bikinis to kaftans,dresses and rompers and in every style you can imagine, from sexy to sophisticated and everything in between – the possibilities are endless! read more

Pakaloha Bikinis-Good for the Ocean and For You

Screen Shot 2018 09 11 at 10 25 53 AM Pakaloha Bikinis Good for the Ocean and For You

Here at Pakaloha Bikinis, we believe in doing the best we can for ourselves and our mother ocean.  We make every single one of our choices intentionally to make sure that our products are good for everyone!  That’s why we stay away from microfibers in our clothes.

  • As you know, the ocean is full of plastic, and every day that problem seems to be getting worse.  The American Government has already banned microbeads, but an even larger part of the problem is microfibers.
  • In a recent study at Carleton University, it was revealed that in microplastics recovered from the Ottowa River, only 5% were microbeads, while the other 95% were microfibers.  Microfibers are found in anything from yoga pants, to jackets, to yes, even bikinis.
  • Microfibers in the ocean get into everything: our water, our seafood, and travel up the food chain into whales and dolphins.  Microfibers, while small, can actually cause fish to starve to death.  While small, they can create a feeling of fullness in fish, meaning they don’t eat, which eventually leads to starvation.
  • Many companies feel that by recycling plastic bottles into clothing, they are helping prevent plastic from ending up in the ocean.  While these intentions are noble, they might be unintentionally making things worse.  This plastic ends up in the ocean in smaller sizes, making it more dangerous and harder to isolate in cleanup efforts.

That’s why, here at Pakaloha, we only use lycra and cotton, meant to last for a long time with minimal effects on the environment.  We all want to do what’s best for the planet and ourselves.  That’s why, this surf season, you can grab a new bikini from us guilt-free and hit the waves! read more
