Swimsuits and surf pants are a common sight on beaches around the world. But do you know how these two got to be? Why would people wear something that isn’t very covering up at all, plus uncomfortable in some cases? Here are the benefits.
1. Super Cooling Effect
When wearing a wetsuit in cold waters, do you feel cool at first but then hot as your body temperature rises? The same thing happens during work or play because you sweat more than normal due to increased insulation from water and air around your skin. This usually leads to overheating and discomfort, which disappears as soon as you jump into an ice bath after leaving the water. Swimsuits and surf pants greatly reduce this effect by keeping your skin directly exposed to the cooling breeze of summertime, making them a lot more comfortable for any activity usually done in shorts or other traditional clothing.
2. Even More Comfortable Than Shorts
Swimsuit and surf pants are thinner and lighter than usual shorts, which is very important for outdoor summer activities. They don’t weigh you down as much as regular clothes in the water, allowing you to move around easily without being restricted by an extra layer of fabric. On land, they provide just enough insulation against the wind chill so you can stay outdoors longer before you start shivering from cold.
3. Ladies Only: No Panty Line
For women, wearing underwear with swimsuit or surf pants is unnecessary. This has several benefits. Elimination of visible panty lines under skirts and dresses, less chafing during sports due to no friction between skin and elastic band, and greater comfort because you can choose whatever type and size you prefer without affecting how your clothing fits over them.
4. Easier Care Than Regular Clothes
You don’t have to pack swimsuit or surf pants separately from your clothes when traveling as you do with a wetsuit (which usually takes up as much space as two large duffel bags if trying to stuff it into an airplane carry-on). You can wash them in the bathroom sink with regular clothing, drip them dry overnight, and iron them the next day if you have a proper flatiron.
In conclusion, swimsuits and surf pants are a great way to keep cool during outdoor activities on hot summer days.
