What Should I Wear to a Spa?

June 13, 2022

What to Wear to a Day Spa

When you go to a spa, you don’t need to dress up in a fancy outfit. Comfortable clothing and slip-on shoes are all you need. You can also opt for matching sets if you want to look even more stylish. You can even wear a colourful jumpsuit to look more professional. A colourful jumpsuit can have large flower prints on it and is generously fitted. No zippers or buttons are necessary. Hence, this outfit is perfect for spa attire.

Comfortable clothing

When choosing comfortable clothing for a day at the spa, look for something easy to move in, but not restrictive. While you can wear a bodysuit or swimsuit, you don’t want to wear a dress, skirt, or blouse if you don’t want to be restricted during the treatment. Choose a cotton tracksuit or a sweatshirt and shorts set, as delicate clothing may get damaged by the massage oil.

Slip-on shoes

When visiting a day spa, slip-on shoes are a must. They are convenient, comfortable, and quick to put on. Unlike conventional shoes, you don’t have to worry about washing your feet after they get dirty, or leaning over to put them on. Additionally, slippers come in a variety of colours, making them a versatile option for any spa visit.


Most spas will provide plastic flip-flops and slippers for you to wear during your visit. But if you prefer to bring your shoes, make sure they fit properly and will not cause any discomfort. You should also bring your swimsuit since the spas are often quite hot and it can be difficult to wear your regular shoes in the sauna and thermal bath. You must ask for guidance when you book an appointment on what you can wear your pair.

Avoiding jewellery

One of the top things you can do to get the best day spa experience is to avoid wearing jewellery. Not only will it get in the way of professional services, but it can also get lost or misplaced. You may also get your jewellery wet, and you never know when you’ll need to take it off again. You also don’t want to feel embarrassed about losing your jewellery – or worse, having to pay for its replacement!
