Spa Etiquette: What to Wear Under Your Robe

Spa Etiquette: Should You Get Naked Under That Robe?

Spa treatments are designed to make you look and feel better, but it's definitely not relaxing to be left in the changing room with nothing but a robe and a bunch of unanswered questions. So, should you be giving your aesthetician the full monty? To find out how you can tell just how disrobed it's "normal" to get, just keep reading.

In a nutshell, yeah, you should feel free to take it all off. No one is going to think you're weird. If you're getting a Swedish, deep tissue, hot stone, or other "standard" massage, keeping underthings on actually gets in the way of muscle work, and your underthings are likely to get messed up by massage oil; the same goes for body wraps and scrubs.

If you're getting a facial, you can take off as much as you want, although you only really need to lose what you're wearing up top. Some treatments, like acupressure massages, don't require you to be unclothed. But as a basic rule, if someone gives you a robe and time to change, being in your birthday suit is more than OK. And if you're worried about being judged by your therapist, don't. A former masseuse friend once told us that therapists are looking at your muscles and alignment, not thinking about your dress size.

I tend to keep on undies and socks unless I'm getting a bikini wax. Although, I do keep socks on for that. My feet get cold!

Call me weird but I like to remained as fully clothed as possible. I feel vulnerable when I am nude in public. My hangups obviously.
