What do you do when you're at a public pool?

Do you take your bathing suit off and get into your regular clothes like it's no big deal? Try to cover up with a towel? Sneak into the bathrooms even though there is a sign saying it's not for changing? Go home with clothes over your bathing suit? Something else?

  • i've never understood why people want to change their clothes right after they've gone to a pool. Honestly, if i go swimming it's because i'm too freaking hot and i need to cool down. Changing into dry clothes entirely defeats the purpose.

  • I put clothes on over my suit. Who changes out in the open? Never saw that before.

  • I've only ever been to public pools with changing rooms. At the beach, I shower off, dry with a towel and air dry as much as possible, and put clothes over my suit for the drive home.

  • If anything I wear a cover up.

  • I just hang out out of the water for a little bit when I go swimming then throw some shorts on over the suit and go home.

  • I don't wear bathing suits in public, lol.

    But when I did I would always try to cover up or go into the washrooms. There's no way I would show my body off to anyone.

  • Oh well I don't actually know of any "out in the open" swimming pools besides at apartment complexes. The only public pools here are all indoor.
