What good are they? what do they protect you from? Nothing! I won’t go swimming if a swimsuit is required. they are so uncomfortable.. There is a quote by D.R. Benson that I like,
“I simply can’t understand why swimsuits are in such demand. They’re soggy and damp, Bind like a clamp and hold about three pounds of sand!”
It’s a lot more free and liberating to swim without the dental floss clamped to your body. Your skin is a natural swimsuit, water repellent, fast dry, and you never have to worry spending hundreds of dollars on swimsuits.
