Swimming fashions have seen many styles over the years. From the modest beach outfits in the 1920s some of us may associate with our great grandmothers, to the revolutionary bikini invented in 1946 by French engineer Louis Réard, and the G-string of late, we have seen it all on the beach where less often meant best.

Generally speaking, men are a bit harder to shop for than women, but I say, save the stressful gift buying for birthdays and anniversaries. On this day, that is supposed to be a tribute to love but has instead become an overly-commercialized gold mine for retailers, why not give our significant others an experience that ties back to the reason we’re celebrating in the first place: Because we love them.
Here are a couple of simple ideas that are sure to help you deliver that message and have fun while you do:
HydroChic Does Aqua Fitness in NEW Chlorine Proof Prints!
To inaugurate our new chlorine proof prints coming in spring 2017, (we’re so excited!) we decided to test spin them and collaborated with our friends at Aqua Wellness World, an aqua workout center in Portchester, NY.
