My 100th Post- Spa Etiquette-the Fanciest Friday yet!


Going to the spa can be a luxurious and wonderful experience, but it can also be a little scary and intimidating if you don't know what to expect or if you are surprised by something you don't expect to see.

I found a lot of good advice on Spavelous.com and although it's still a little shock for me to walk into the women's spa area and find a woman completely naked in the hot tub, apparently, it's up to the spa's individual etiquette and rules and your comfort level, but ladies...if we can wear a suit in the tub, please do. When in the sauna, it's understandable that you would only want a clean towel on, and in other areas, please use the robes and slippers provided. You'd be surprised what can be passed along (disease wise) when you don't wear the proper foot wear so make sure you're going to a reputable place that cleans its equipment properly, it's okay to ask. Never shower without footwear, that's not okay. If there are only locker rooms and no private dressing rooms, you may either choose to dress under your robe, dis-robe and dress right there, or pick a bathroom stall and take your clothing along. Check out that link above for a complete list of things to remember and think about...and remember, it's not selfish to take care of yourself. We made it to 100 posts together!
