There is nothing like a beautiful day at the beach, the sand, surf and the rays of the sun beating down on your body. Beach visits have been popular with people of all ages, and are as much of a family activity as they are an individual excursion. No beach visit is complete without spending some timer relaxing on the beach with some suntan lotion on and getting that perfect tan. Today, just as important as planning the visit to the beach is the beach supplies you carry with you, from beach towels, to elegant beach chairs and of course swim wear. Irrespective of your age, no visit to the beach can be truly enjoyed without having these basic accessories.
With so many new advances in technology and manufacturing methods swim wear and beach towels are now available in a wide variety of designs and patterns. Depending on your taste and choice, there are a vast variety of beach towels and swim wear available today, and the number of manufacturers that are offering these products are simply mind boggling. Choosing the right beach supplies for yourself can be quite a task if you have no idea where to being. The first thing that you need to get yourself apart from the suntan lotion is a beach towel. Today beach towels are no longer just another accessory to your beach supplies, beach towels are available in a wide variety of designs and also come in a wide variety of finishes. In fact a beach towel has become a way of expressing yourself, and your attitude.
The next time you visit the beach look around and you will see everything from Velour finish beach towels to patriotic beach towels with the American flag imprinted on them. If you are looking to buy a beach towel for regular use, then it is advisable to use a fibre reactive beach towel. Fibre reactive dyes are dyes used on cotton that have much better binding when compared to traditional dyes, so if you are looking to use your beach towel regularly then fibre reactive beach towels are the best option. However if you enjoy the fantastic texture that is offered by velour beach towels then go ahead and indulge yourself, in fact an increasingly large number of velour finish beach towels are now available in fibre reactive dyes too.
The only advice is that no synthetic or artificial material is as durable as cotton, unlike swim wear that is available in a large variety of materials; the best material for beach towels is 100% cotton. So the next time you want to buy a beach towel make sure that the beach towel is 100% cotton or a blend that has a large percentage of cotton. More so if the towel you are using is in velour; as velour usually has a certain amount of synthetic additives, however newer velour beach towels too are as good as 100% cotton, as they are designed to be durable and have a large quantity of cotton used during their manufacture.
Swim Wear Swim wear! The first thing that comes to anyone's mind is a spandex swimsuit bikini; unfortunately this is an image that is far from the truth. Agreed that spandex is probably the most popular swimsuit material, but this in no way means that spandex is the only swim suit material available. Today swimsuits are available in a wide variety of fabrics other than spandex, not just materials there is a wide variety of fashion swim wear available especially for women; from exotic swim suits to the increasingly popular leather swim suits there is a swimsuit made just for you. So the next time you think of a swimsuit think beyond the usual spandex based swimsuit, you will be pleasantly surprised by the variety that is on offer.
