There seems to be no avoiding a new fad – the bubble wrap body suit. Men and women alike are sporting one. And not just for Halloween either, although it does keep you nice and warm while you’re tricking and treating. But it’s not just for use in the cold. You can jump into the pool in the summer with your suit on, and you become an automatic flotation device!
I mean, what other way is there to celebrate Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day which falls every year on the last Monday in January?! Not only is bubble wrap a tried and true form of therapy, but it’s also a lifesaver when it comes to packaging and protecting your valuables. And now you can package and protect yourself and be fashionable too!
You can either fashion your own bubble wrap body suit following a simple sewing pattern, or even order a full suit online! You can have hours of popping fun with it, running around the streets and hugging strangers. Or go ahead and roll down a hill and see how many bubbles you can pop. If you’ve got a higher pain threshold then you can even go a round of paintballing with your friends and really let those bubbles pop! Maybe you’re an avid festival-goer and you want to keep your clothes clean and dry into the wee hours of the night. Well then, this suit is perfect for you!
It’s not all just for fun and games though. Maybe there is a contact sport you want to try out but some extra cushion will help? You can even wear the suit at the spa before you head in for a massage. The bubble wrap body suit can be like therapeutic hosiery for your body! Just make sure to stay hydrated while wearing it. Your pores will thank you!
Some have even used the suit to make a statement about pedestrian safety on the streets of Philadelphia. Bubble wrap truly deserves all the use and appreciation it gets. Because at the end of a rainy day, maybe it’s the best investment you’ll have ever made.
