While summer may feel months away, especially if you’re not going to Europe chasing the sun, it won’t be long before the warm weather is upon us. And, when the temperature skyrockets, one of the best ways to cool off is to lounge around in the nearest body of water you can find.
The downside to cooling off with a dip, is the energy it requires to tread water and stay afloat. While inflatables are all the latest rage when it comes to pool or sea sessions – don’t be fooled into thinking they solve the problem. Anyone who’s ever tried to get on a blow up lilo or swan will tell you it’s much harder than it looks and requires a considerable amount of co-ordination.
Thankfully, there is a new solution to your swimming woes. Similar to floatation belts designed to help children bob about safely in the water, Floaty pants are here to help you keep your head above water and your hair dry!
A waterproof nappy of sorts, Floaty pants are made of nylon and stuffed with moisture resistant EPE foam to ensure you stay as high and dry as possible. The crotch is made of neoprene and they’re designed to be comfortable on your sensitive areas and ensure you don’t end up with a wedgie.
Simply step into the pants, buckle up to make sure you don’t come loose from your throne and jump on in (or maybe carefully lower yourself in to avoid an initial sinking situation). The nylon naturally resists water too, so your Floaty pants won’t leak everywhere when you get out.
With rave reviews, my favourite was initially designed with the intention of allowing wearers to enjoy a drink in the water without having to tread water or, worse, sink. That said, they can be used for a range of purposes, such as playing games, reading, eating or any other hands-on water activities.
With seven designs to choose from, the real question is will you be rocking the ab man or a polka dot bikini this summer?
