Our Recommendations on What to Wear to a Spa
The spa is the ideal setting if you need a day of rest and relaxation. But occasionally you find yourself wondering, “What is the best outfit to wear to the spa?” While you’ll probably spend most of your time in a robe once you’re at your chosen spa, we understand that choosing clothing to arrive in can be challenging. This is why we are here to guide you!
Depending on which spa services you use that day, you should choose what to dress and bring with you to the spa. However, when choosing your attire, comfort and practicality should be your top priorities as you prepare to visit a spa. The primary objective of a spa is to make its visitors feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible. With that being said, here are 5 of the best outfits to wear when visiting our spa:
#1) Non-restrictive garments
Non-restrictive garments such as yoga pants, t-shirts, sweat pants, hoodies, lounge pants, and so on are very encouraged as they allow easy body movement and comfort. When going to a spa, you need to sit and move comfortably and easily, this is why we highly suggest non-restrictive clothing like those mentioned previously. Always remember, if you can move freely, it’s a winner!
#2) Slippers or Sandals
For shoes, open-toed sandals or slippers work very well at helping you receive the maximum level of relaxation. This allows you easy access to take your shoes off if the specific treatment you are receiving requires you to do so. It also allows your feet to breathe and not feel compressed, as they would if you were wearing closed shoes.
Most spas will provide you with a robe to wear while spending your day relaxing at the spa. Robes are great because they allow you to feel warm and comfortable at the same time! In addition, some treatments, such as hot soaks, sauna rooms, and so on, may require you to wear a bathing suit. The robe will then act as a relaxing cover that facilitates your movement around the spa while remaining calm, comfortable, and confident.
#4) No Jewelry
When arranging a spa day, it is best to leave jewelry at home or avoid wearing it altogether. Rings and necklaces may feel heavy while taking a bath or a soak, and they can get in the way when receiving a massage or facial. Additionally, you will be required to take off any jewelry you do wear, which may increase the risk of losing it.
#5) A Smile 🙂
Remember, a spa day is a day for you to enjoy yourself and lift some weight off your shoulders. We are here to help provide you with a relaxing and unique experience that transports you to a world of peaceful bliss. However, whether you do or don’t come in with a smile, we can guarantee that you will be leaving the spa with one.
What Treatment You're Getting Can Determine Your Spa Day Outfit
When deciding what your spa day outfit should be, consider the type of treatment you are planning to get. The type of treatment you plan on getting is main determinant of what you should wear. For example, if you are planning on getting a neck and shoulder massage, the type of shoes or pants you wear wont be as important as the type of shirt you wear. For a neck and shoulder massage we recommend wearing a shirt that can be easily removed and avoid wearing any necklaces.
Another example can be if you are planning on getting your legs waxed. The type of shirt you wear or whether or not you wear any jewelry shouldn’t matter. The most important parts of your outfit you should consider are your shoes and pants. Since you are required to remove your shoes and pants during a full leg wax; leggings would be a great option since they are easy to remove.
What to Wear to a Massage Appointment
A massage is a great way to relax and unwind after a long day, but what you wear can make all the difference in how comfortable you feel during your session.
Generally, it is recommended to wear something lightweight and breathable that will allow the therapist to easily move their hands around your body without needing to readjust your clothing. It’s usually best to avoid jeans or anything too tight or restrictive. You can opt for comfortable yoga pants and a loose-fitting shirt or tank top, so that you can still feel relaxed while lying on the massage table.
Additionally, some people may wish to undress completely for the massage, while others prefer to remain clothed – it is up to your individual discretion and comfort level which option you choose. Ultimately, what you wear will depend on what makes you the most relaxed and what type of massage you’re requesting, so make sure you plan ahead for what would work best for you! Regardless of what outfit you choose though, always remember that feeling comfortable ensures that your massage experience will be as enjoyable as possible!
What to Wear to a Facial Appointment
When deciding what to wear to a facial appointment, you want something that is comfortable and easy to remove. Of course, what you wear depends heavily on what type of facial treatment you will be receiving.
For instance, if your facial includes extractions, you may want to opt for something with buttons or a zipper that can easily slip off from the shoulders. If your facial includes masks or waxing, loose clothing is best because it won’t restrict your movements should the technician need access to any particular area of your face.
Ultimately, arriving at the salon in light clothing that is comfortable and doesn’t limit movements is usually your best bet when searching for what to wear to a facial appointment.
Final tips: avoid wearing any type of jewelry (especially necklaces) and refrain from using any products with SPF prior to arriving for facial – these two items can interfere with some spa treatments.
What to Wear to a Waxing Appointment
Choosing what to wear for a waxing appointment can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be! The key is to find something that is comfortable and allow you easy access to the area being waxed. Loose fitting clothes like yoga pants or shorts are great as they won’t be restrictive and can quickly be moved around.
Remember that the more exposed skin there is, the easier it will be for the technician to do their job. As an added touch, wearing loose clothing post-waxing allows your skin to relax and aid in fast-tracking any potential redness or irritation.
Taking the time to consider what you’ll wear when going into a waxing appointment may not seem like a huge deal, but it will help ensure that not only will you have an enjoyable experience but also be comfortable while doing so!
