Cara Buono Nude Swimwear Line
In a recent issue of GQ, Cara Butler discussed her relationship with the Cara Buono nude swimwear line. Butler, who is an accomplished swimmer and yoga instructor, described her fascination with this line as “fascination with the bizarre.” The nude swimwear line by Cara Buono is certainly strange in that it offers clothing designed especially for the nude enthusiast. A typical piece from this line includes a hooded tankini, a matching bra, a pair of shorts, a matching skirt, and a bra with a low-cut neckline. Each of these items is designed to be worn in the nude.
Nudity is not always seen as a good thing by society. In fact, nudity has been the bane of many cultures throughout history because of people’s fear of being exposed to the naked eye, especially in public. Many cultures have made laws and rules discouraging nudity in public areas, especially in public beaches and parks.
The Cara Buono line is trying to counteract some of these negative reactions to nudity by appealing to the norm. In a way, this is a positive response to the culture surrounding nudity in society. If the clothing designers of this line are successful in making their products acceptable to many people, then maybe society will be more open to more naked people and the nudity itself will be accepted as a natural part of life. It could be a turning point toward a more accepting society.
For most people, nudity is a personal matter. However, if nudity is not seen as an appropriate part of everyday life then it can create an impression on those who are the target audience. Butler describes the line as “nudity in a fun, non-judgmental way.” It does not offend those people who see it. Instead, it appeals to them. In Butler’s words, “it makes you feel good.”
It also doesn’t hurt that the clothing line makes women feel good while they are wearing it. Many women do not like feeling uncomfortable while in a bathing suit. When you feel good while wearing something, it helps you focus on the task at hand. That task is to enjoy yourself! In other words, the clothing helps you feel good about yourself. This helps you to relax and not let any negative feelings creep in.
I have no doubt that more women will be buying the clothing line from Cara Butler. As more people are convinced by its appeal to nudity, more negative reactions to nudity will fade into the background.
