If you are true naturists, you will have no need of any textiles. Should you feel inclined to wear anything, the tone is not lowered if it is a true cover up. Once the slinky, tease, skanky duds are in evidence, the bar gets somewhat lowered rather than raised.




Hmm..I find the naturist rule book perplexing. Most on this site emphatically state that they don't care if the people around them on a beach or other area are clothed, and take others to task that prefer areas where nudity is enforced, but now have rules or opinions on provacative clothing?

This is why I don't consider myself a naturist, but just a naked person.

It depends on the level of 'skankiness', whether other people's dress offends me--or I even notice. But I would say that the perception among many naturists is that the skanky clothing is just an excuse for an exhibitionist to wear lingerie in public. Naturism really has nothing to do with sex, per se, despite what many people on the outside think and the wearing of skanky clothing at naturist venues just serves to perpetuate the myth that sex and naturism are linked.

Yes, and you will never change that perception no matter how hard you try. We that prefer to be nude, know that the outside world is the outside world..So, why feed into it with your own stereotype of someone wearing sexy clothing? I'm sure most that wear this attire are simply just trying to have fun...I find it amusing that someone that is naked would find someone with a sexy cover up provactive.

You're speaking for a group? Which one?

Assuming you mean provocative...
sexy adj. = Arousing or tending to arouse sexual desire or interest.

Wow, some of you make this really complicated. This is pretty much a three step process for me.

1) Go to beach
B. Take off clothes
iii - Enjoy

Notice how give a ___ what other people are or are not wearing is not on the list. Nor is care what other people think about what I am doing.

I'm the OP, and I've purposely stayed out of this thread since it seemed to turn from my original question and plea for some help into an indictment that anybody that puts on a thread of clothes at a nudist resort is some sort of trojan horse poser. Thank you to those that included links to places to shop for what we're looking for.

I'm not looking to buy "skanky" things for my wife to wear while dining at N, I thought I made that clear in the original post. I'm looking for something fun for her to wear to dinner, something that she isn't able wear (by itself) anywhere else and something that makes her feel good, something that she knows I spent time shopping for her to wear, something that I thought we would both enjoy.

I'm not trying to "skank" up my wife at a nudist resort. If that were the case, we wouldn't be going to N, we'd book at Hedo or many of the other places that cater to that clientele. My wife is more comfortable sitting at a restaurant with something on, even if that something is a sheer pareo, and I share that feeling with her. I merely wanted to know where I could find a selection of items actually styled with some structure, rather than just wrapping herself in a sheer rectangle every evening.

If an interest in wearing something fun and fashionable to a dinner meal at a nudist resort makes us not "true naturists", then so be it. I couldn't care less.

Interesting post today on the Terra Cotta Inn blog by Tom Mulhall:

"As nudists all know, Terra Cotta inn is the best, most fun nude sunbathing resort in Southern California. And this coming weekend November 9th to 12th we're having a women's nudist fashion show.

I know, you're thinking, "Nudists wear clothes?" It's true. Many women enjoy wearing beach wraps and pareos when they walk around nudist resorts and nude beaches. Also many women don't want to eat naked. They want to wear something light and breezy and see through when dining or when the sun goes down.

Also a lot of nudist wear is easily wearable as sexy clothing to go out on the town when you go clubbing. You just put on a camisole or fancy bra underneath the nudist clothes.

Ann Nix is the clothing designer. Many of the nudist clothes she has designed and sewn are one of a kind. She has had shows at Glen Eden, Laguana del Sol, and DeAnza nudist parks. All Veteran's get 10% off her clothes that weekend."

I guess it's not just me and my wife....

We first came SXM in 1997 and visited CO in 1998. Met the nicest people on the Tiko Tiko. They were kind enough to invite us to the Wine and Cheese Party and another couple invited us to dinner there. If I could remember correctly most women wore a pareo and most men were nude (with towel to sit on). No one cared what you wore. This past May we stayed there (CO) for the 1st time (4 days)and a week at the time share. Used Jim Ruos. (Both He and his wife are very nice people). Had dinner there a couple times. One evening I walked in nude. The wife a pareo. I felt out of place as most people were clothed or had some sort of undergarment on. People there made me feel uneasy. I thought that protocol had changed regarding textiles. Needless to say we did not change our attire and had a good time. We will be returning this Spring/Summer and I hope there is a different group of people at The Papagayo or we will be eating elsewhere. If I am going to put on clothes I may as well be eating in Grand Case.

According to the mission statement from the AANR:

"We reject categorically any attempt to associate the good name and reputation of family social nudism, of any AANR-chartered club, or of the American Association for Nude Recreation, with the sexual exploitation of the human body. We further reject any use of the terms nudist, nudism, family social nudism, or American Association for Nude Recreation, as a cover for sexually-exploitive purposes, commercial or otherwise."


Nudist clothes! What's that about? Tom may have invented a new oxymoron!
There is a definite difference between nudism and exhibitionism. I am not saying one is superior or better than the other just that there is a difference. Wearing sexy clothing does not fit the definition of nudism.
