I should have mentioned that there are 2 kinds of wetlook fans.....wetlook practitioners and wetlook voyeurs. I am of the latter and not the former, so I see the differently to a practitioner because I just see things from a "look" point of view and not from a "feel" point of view. So the wetlook practitioners probably see things differently because for them, it is all about the experience.

also we all may like swimming in non-swimwear better, to me it is a mistake not to talk positiv about such sunprotectionswimwear.
You ask why? Well it's simple if you think in a more longtime strategic way. When people get used to this protectionswimwear they will get used to people wearing different suit than swimsuit or bikini.So there will come a day, when noone is looking strangly a you, when go swimming with jeans and t-shirt. And there will be people, who forgot they protective swinwear und will go swimming with just the Clothes they came with.
So thinking (and talking) positive about protective swimwear might lead to more chances of "real" wetlook. And at least the change of color is something that can also happen :)

The entire appeal of wetlook to me is when the clothing used in wetlook situation is NOT intended to get wet...i.e. the sense of naughtiness in doing something you are not supposed to do. Clothing that is designed for the purpose of getting wet has no appeal for me...i.e. swim tights, swim vests, burka style swim wear etc. For me that is unappealing as wearing a raincoat when it rains.
The main problem I have with purposely designed swim clothes is that the fabrics they use are purposely designed to be impervious to the effects of water ......i.e. the 3 most enjoyable wetlook fabric attributes for me are 1) when a fabric changes shape or clings, 2) when a fabric changes color to show the difference between wet and dry, and 3) when a fabric goes see thru.....and none of these things happen with swim clothes....only with street clothes.
Swim leggings for me are not much different to wearing a scuba wet suit.......but that's just the opinion of an old fuddy duddy.
