Needless to say, the preemptive shower is much easier and more effective when done naked.And any bacteria, fecal matter, sweat, germs, etc., that get trapped in suits could be avoided altogether if everyone swam nude.
Though I’m not much into fashion or clothes shopping, I do like dressing up sometimes and expressing myself with certain colors, fabrics and styles.Though the bathing suit has gradually shrunk down from full-length costumes to today’s teeny bikini, the practices of skinny-dipping and nude sunbathing have never disappeared.The liberating feeling of swimming without a suit is a common reason people get into nudism.Here’s a tweet that sort of sums my feelings: “It’s pretty annoying that I have to pay like 0 for a swimsuit, like you literally are a piece of cloth that covers my nipples.” This isn’t to say that men are exempt from any pressure to look slim and muscular in their swim attire because they definitely aren’t.Many guys certainly do experience body image issues come beach season and in general.And due to America’s weird hang-ups about nudity, how many of that 32% are showering and still entering the pool with germs attached? In fact it’s a result of impurities from people’s bodies mixing with chlorine in the water.We probably have the dirtiest public pools of any developed country. This creates chloramines, which give off that irritating odor.For “plus-size” women and women with large breasts, it’s like trying to find a needle in a haystack.When you do find your holy grail of a suit, you’re lucky if it doesn’t come with a hefty price tag.They’re uncomfortable, tight and restricting before you even go in the water. now you have cold, sopping wet fabric clinging to your skin.If you were swimming in the ocean or at a sandy beach, you’ve probably got some sand in your crotch, too.
