Saw this video this morning. Too funny and so true!
This approach is fairly typical of US beaches. That and the contortion women go through to untie their bikini tops so they can avoid tan lines on their backs when they tan lying face down. To each her own but it’s always struck me as a bit silly.
I once saw a woman on a Spanish beach do the exact opposite — change out if her wet suit into a dry one on a non-nude beach. No hiding, no fear. She just carried on with her conversation and casually changed. I’m sure people noticed but no one appeared to object or make any kind of fuss. Different cultural approach to nudity.
