Yes, it is completely normal to have doubts about what to wear during a spa treatment, especially if it’s your first time. Wearing undergarments or not during a spa session comes down to personal preference. Some people feel more comfortable keeping their underwear on, while others prefer to take them off for a complete feeling of freedom from any clothing impeding their relaxation. It’s good to know that professionals in the spa industry see every body shape, size, and age, so there’s no need to feel embarrassed or uncomfortable about getting undressed in front of them. Here are some essential tips about what to wear for various spa treatments:
For massage treatments, most spas provide disposable paper panties to wear for modesty and hygiene.
For full-body treatments like body wraps or scrubs, you can wear a swimsuit or underwear if you prefer.
If you’re having a facial treatment, you don’t need to remove your clothes, but it is helpful to wear a top that you can unbutton to expose your neck and décolleté.
If it’s a self-tanning session, you will need to wear loose, dark clothing (preferably without underwear) to avoid staining.
In any case, remember that the primary goal of a spa treatment is to relax and distress. Therefore, opt for comfortable clothing that does not restrict your movements, and most importantly, whatever makes you feel relaxed and confident.
