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.I’m not one of those nudies that feels compelled to be naked 24 / 7, and I would say that many nudists can’t be and don’t care to be naked everywhere, all the time.(I’ve mentioned this before in the common myths about nudism.) I’m quite comfortable wearing clothes in the winter.
Here’s why I think we’d all be better off without bathing suits: 1.When kids were required to swim naked at the Y, hygiene was the primary reason given, and it’s still a good reason.Though we now have better chemical technology, chlorine is not some miracle pool cleaner.I get cold very easily and am grateful for the sweaters I have to keep me warm.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.For “plus-size” women and women with large breasts, it’s like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
