For example, most nudist resorts with optional clothing require guests to be dressed in restaurants for hygiene reasons. Congratulations, you've finally hit the nail on the head and booked a sexy vacation at a resort with optional or nudist clothing. Even in properties with optional clothing, most people are there naked. If you're like us, you might find yourself looking at an empty suitcase the night before your trip, with no idea what to put in it.
What should you pack when you expect to be naked? Turns out you'll need clothes. For example, most resorts with optional clothing and nudists require guests to be dressed in restaurants for health reasons. There are also areas where clothing is mandatory, and you may not be comfortable walking around naked in the sections where clothing is optional. Here's a quick list of things you'll want to put in your suitcase when you go to a nude resort or with optional clothing.
Clothing may be optional, but these rules to avoid a misstep on a nude beach are not. Many BnB naturist spots have optional clothing. It means you can wear some clothes if you prefer. On the other hand, some may practice the strict rule of only stripping.
In both cases, it is allowed to wear clothes when it's cold or to protect the body. However, lingerie is not considered an appropriate outfit. Before you jump into the sand, make sure you're clear about what parts of the beach allow nudity and respect those limits by staying covered in sections where clothing is required and in common areas, such as parking. Optional clothing options are limited in the United States, but there are some public beaches where nudity is accepted, such as Haulover Beach in Miami, Gunnison Beach in New Jersey, North Baker Beach in San Francisco and Black's Beach, near San Diego.
However, in nudist resorts you may have to bring your own towel to sit on furniture in restaurants and bars or in any other common area, a convention that, by the way, we support unreservedly. Although there is public nudity on a large scale during the day, at night it's a time when people wear their sexiest clothing, such as leather clothing, straps, lycra and PVC. When you go anywhere nudist or with optional clothing, whether it's a beach, a resort, or a private home, there's a common etiquette that you should understand and obey.
