For many people who don’t spend a lot of time in the water, finding the right thing to wear in it can be tough.
Luckily, we’re here to help.
Whether you’re going in the spa alone or with friends, read below to find out the main things you should consider when picking out what to wear.
Considerations For Hot Tub Dress
Use “Hot Tub” Swimwear
If you’re someone who spends a lot of time swimming around in the lakes or oceans with your bathing suit, we highly recommend getting a swimsuit that is solely for hot tub use. This is because natural bodies of water carry biological agents and minerals that can be bad when mixed in with the water inside your hot tub.
Swimsuits that are used on the beach have been known to accumulate sunscreen and lotion. The last thing you want to do is compromise the water that is in your hot tub with sunscreen.
Chemicals that are found in hot tubs, such as chlorine, can damage swimsuits over time. If you are someone that likes to buy expensive swimsuits, we recommend leaving those for other uses. Instead, go for a cheaper, heavy-duty suit that is made out of a tough material such as nylon.
Rinse Your Bathing Suits
Make sure that whatever suit you are wearing in your hot tub is going in clean. If you truly care about your spa, we recommend asking family, friends, and other guests to rinse off before they hop in your spa.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can You Wear Shorts In A Spa?
Most guys like to wear a simple pair of swim trunks in a spa, which is completely fine. As for everyday shorts, such as jean shorts, cargo shorts, etc., we don’t recommend doing so. The chlorine can damage the fibers in regular clothing. If you do go with a pair of heavy-duty swim trunks, make sure that they are made out of durable material as we mentioned before.
What Do I Wear In The spa During Winter?
If you live in a colder region, wearing the proper cold winter gear in a spa is absolutely necessary for a good time. Here are a few things that we highly recommend making sure you have on you when getting in the spa during the cold season:
Beanie: a beanie is a wonderful piece of clothing that can help keep your hair up and dry, as well as keep your ears nice and warm. Plus, you can stay warm while enjoying all of the normal benefits of your spa, as a beanie won’t get in the way.
Waterproof Sandals or Shoes: Having some sandals or shoes will help to keep your feet warm before you enter and after you exit your spa. Don’t risk stepping in cold snow or debris in bear wet feet. Ouch!
Facial Moisturizer: if there are cold winds about, you might want to consider wearing some sort of facial moisturizer. This can help to keep your skin from drying out due to the cold by locking in the right amount of moisture. A good moisturizer will also help to create a barrier between the spa water and your pores so that you don’t absorb any harmful chemicals.
Can I Be Nude In My Spa?
Absolutely! A spa is a bit like a bath. The only reasons you might not want to go nude in a spa are:
- You are afraid of being seen
- The spa does not belong to you
Otherwise, it is free reign! You’ll be able to sink deeper into relaxation without feeling restricted by a bathing suit.
Getting The Right Swimsuit Attire For The Hot Tub
The answer to the question of what you should wear in hot tubs comes down to what makes you the most comfortable. After all, being in a hot tub is all about finding peace so that you can melt away the stress of the day and feel good. From swimming trunks to a one piece bathing suit to a bikini and beyond, the choice is yours.
If you’re wearing something that makes you uncomfortable, whether it is because you don’t have the proper attire or because you are wearing something to impress others at a hot tub party, you’ll never be able to take in all of the benefits that the hot tub has to offer.
