Harmen, a 27 year old from the Netherlands is the founder of 2Bare2Wear; started his business in April of 2015 with the help of SpreadShirt. SpreadShirt is worldwide and handles the printing, shipping and the aftercare the merchandise. If your shipment was damaged or something goes wrong, Spreadshirt will handle any problems for you.
Harmen started his business because he was looking some shirts to express his love for Naturism and that having a shirt with “Naturist” etc on it could spark a conversation with others to talk about Naturism. However, Harmen could not find anything to suit his interest — so, he set out to design them himself and begin a business by doing just that. At first, his business was completely experimental with one shop. Visitor counts were up, yet sales were not so much. This is when he decided to open up more shops in different currencies and languages. Harmen now has 8 shops in total and says that way, it could keep shopping costs to a minimum.
Harmen says, some people like to think that he is doing it for the money when in fact, he is not. With efforts to keep costs low and with the rising costs from Spreadshirt, he only makes a commission of $1/€0,60. Despite all the money he has invested in his business in advertizing and designs, he does not plan to stop what he loves doing; founded 2Bare2Wear so more people will know the true meaning of Naturism. That is all what matters to him, “Spreading the word”
When asked why he created 2Bare2Wear, he told me that he thought a lot of people in the textile world were getting the wrong idea on Naturism; says the biggest assumption was they found it was related to sexualism. He says he is trying to get that image out of their heads and better educate people on the true nature of the meaning of Naturism.
Harmen loves what he is doing and says he gets very positive reactions from people worldwide. With no intention to stopping what he loves to do, he plans to have new designs for 2016!

Naturists have one of the golden rules when it comes to social nudity; either your at a club, resort, campgrounds or at a gathering with friends is to sit on a towel when you must. It is for sanitary reasons. With all the different types, sizes and choices out there, what one should you bring along with you the next time you are going out to a social gathering?
One towel that catches my interest if you like the larger beach size towels is made by Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park. their towel is a multifunctional towel. The towel can be bought at the Bare Boutique starting at $24.95.
- Folds into a multifunctional beach bag
- Terry Towelling finish
- 213 cm (84″) long – 100% terry towel cotton
- Top pocket slides securely over back of lounge chair
- Three pockets either side
- Separate iPod/MP3 player pocket with loops
- Zippered storage pocket
- Ties to secure to the lounge chair
This kind of towel is perfect for the beach or lounge chair if your going to lay on it and soak in the sun. However, if a big towel is too much for you, their are some other options. I went out and bought a bathroom towel and a matching colour face cloth and had sewed the facecloth in the corner of the towel and added a zipper.(You could also use Velcro instead.)
My final option is more if you know you will not be lounging or sunning. Simply use the same concept with a hand-towel. if you prefer not adding a pocket, that’s your choice to make if you do not plan to carry anything with you. however, if you want to be hands free of things and want a place to put them as you go bouts your day I would suggest a pocket.
The choices are endless. You can also use these Ideas to be creative and come up with your own Idea.. something unique to you! =)
tanthrough.com has a selection of clothing on the market that gives you the ability to be dressed when and where it’s not appropriate for Naturists to bare all in the pubic and not get tan-lines! Yup, you heard right. You can still get your all over tan even when your clothed. They cost from $34 to $72 for women and $32 to $44 for the men. I’ve never tried these yet; wonder how well they really work.
