NTA. Still, you should invite him over, apologize for not wearing the dress, and say you want to go out for a night on the town. And to show how much you love your gift, give him this to wear himself:

Yeah, The one time I had a bf buy me clothing, it was super comfy leggings and shirts that were my style and he asked his friend of a similar height who had similar tastes to go with him to test sizes. I can honestly say tha it was the absolute best birthday gift I ever got from a boy. It showed how much he knw about my style and comfort level.

u/Solfire · 6 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

I think you are confused, /u/Antranik doesn't wear shirts. That's his hairy chest.

EDIT: My apologies for not answering your full question. There is an assortment of "bottom wear" he purchases available on Amazon, here.

You can typically get his kind of aviators at Urban Outfitters.

u/CalleTacna · 6 pointsr/surfing

I started wearing them last year - aside from the long term protection against surfers ear, I find I feel warmer with them in. I'll even wear them in warm water no to prevent water in my ear, which is annoying.

There are a lot of expensive ones out there but the JBL ones on amazon (or some surf shops) work great and are like 1/4 the cost

u/tossme68 · 5 pointsr/chicago

I usually just leave my tshirt and shorts on the beach with a towel. If I'm feeling paranoid I ball everything up and leave it next to the guard stand. I also have one of these so I have a place to put my keys and anything of value - it's also a good thing to have for many safety reasons.

u/spiteful_trees · 4 pointsr/Swimming

One thing that helped me was purchasing a bungee and swimming for 20-30 mins non stop or work on intervals.

It’s a bit tough but doable!


u/aralias · 4 pointsr/Swimming

Do you have chronic issues with sinus blockage or allergies? It's not as uncommon as you might think to have difficulties breathing through your nose.

I'd recommend the following: Give it a few more tries as-is, and if you can't get it right/continue to have difficulties, just buy a nose clip. Plenty of swimmers use them, and they are legal on the competitive scene. Below are links to a couple different varieties, but your best bet is probably to just swing by a sporting goods store and see which ones fit best for you.

Speedo Competition Nose Clip

TYR Latex Nose Clip

u/myekename · 4 pointsr/triathlon

Googles are something you will definitely want. Even if you swim with your head above water, everyone else will be splashing.
This is a link to mirrored Speedo Vanquishers, which will be nice if it's sunny out....they work fine if it's not as well.. You can find them in any swim shop, and possibly in a sporting goods store (they're pretty popular).

I've seen people do the swim in swim shorts. Make sure they don't fall off as you swim. Otherwise, investing in a jammer may be a great idea. It will weigh less, cause less drag and be easy to throw shorts over for the bike and run. Also not too pricey. If you shop online, just get fitted at any sporting goods store or swim store.

u/[deleted] · 3 pointsr/bjj

You have to keep pressure on it after you drain it, the best ssolution I have found is using a swimmers nose clip like this one

u/Ironma17 · 3 pointsr/triathlon

That's sounds like a great idea. I would suggest getting a bungee like this one to help even out the resistance:
Swim Bungee Training Belt

u/stevogiant · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I've always used the Swedish swimming goggles and have never had problems with them.

Original Swedish Goggles Monterbara (Clear) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001QY3YXE/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_.faaBbSH6BRZ0

u/Fudwick · 3 pointsr/sarasota

Just get this instead an you're all set! Much cheaper. https://www.amazon.com/ZWZCYZ-Floaties-Inflatable-Floatation-Swimming/dp/B00LPAR6GU/ref=sr_1_12?ie=UTF8&qid=1517524638&sr=8-12&keywords=floaties

Seriously though its your call based on where you live... the area has flooded in the past but it depends on your location. This past year i've known folks whose entire apartment flooded out while our place was bone dry and would be that way unless most of Florida drowned.

u/lockjaw293 · 2 pointsr/Favors

I love swimming, but water always gets in my nose and i get MASSIVE headaches. I'd really like this

u/frcn · 2 pointsr/Coffee

Maybe THESE?

u/tipsycup · 2 pointsr/xxketo4u2

Honestly, I am pretty damn picky when it comes to tubing. There are a lot of ways for it to go south and be less than enjoyable and I am not about that life. What I would do if I were you (and when I am me on a new-to-me river) is find a livery that does tube rentals and do that for your first time out. What that does is usually puts you on a generally slow and shallow stretch of river that has been cleared of tube popping debris, lets you see if you like it, and, if it is just you and your kids, has the bonus of picking you up and taking you back to where you put in. Then you know for the next time and you buy this or this. We have both in our small flotilla and have used them dozens of times. Some extra pro tips: clip a life jacket to at least one of them so in case you do pop a tube you still have a way to float and pick up a cheap $1 plastic paddle from Goodwill if you ever see them, they are great for pushing off of potential obstacles.

edit- OR drive 2-ish hours to u/tipsycup’s kayak and tube livery and I will handle it all for you! F-r-e-e, plus keto boat snacks!

u/brentsopel5 · 2 pointsr/missoula

Not a problem!

Welcome to Missoula! (or whenever you get here)

Be sure to grab an Intex and join all of us on the river this summer :)

u/ltethe · 2 pointsr/surfing

I do. Years of El Porto have gradually made my ears sensitive. I would get slammed by a wall, and nearly every time I went under, it would hurt.

I use these

They stick in the ear pretty well, they stay in in just about everything except the gnarliest sets, and they equalize appropriately if you get pushed to the bottom.

Recently I surfed in Bali without these, and was pleasantly surprised that the pain I was experiencing has gone away after a few seasons of wearing these.

"1 inch"? what is this nonsense??

u/thejournalizer · 1 pointr/triathlon

I've had the displeasure of using about 10 different kind of nose plugs.

For the past few months I've been using these, but I tend to break them once a month. Comfortable and get the job done.

I just started using this kind the past few days. I figure since there is no plastic it won't be as likely to snap. I feel like this one does a better job, too.

u/Beej67 · 1 pointr/liberalgunowners

So can a Beeman air rifle, at approximately the same effectiveness, with muuuch cheaper ammunition. If your goal is to have something to hunt rabbits, consider this:


A .177 pellet at 1200 fps will take out most small game. Might not do a possum.

I bought one because I'm not allowed to discharge a firearm within 100 ft of a right of way in my municipality, and I needed to keep rabbits out of my garden. Legal definition of "firearm" doesn't include air rifles - chemically propelled projectiles only.

On the flipside, if you're talking about survival-math, calculate how many pounds of rice you can buy for the cost of your 10/22 and ammo.

One great positive of the 10/22, though, is you can take it to Appleseed. One of the best rifle training programs in the country IMO. You can meet lots of politically diverse folks there too.

u/CamgCor · 1 pointr/airguns

I've owned a Beeman similar to this for years. Being able to switch between .177 Cal and .22 Cal pellets was always tons of fun for me. It can even be used to take small game. What is the price range you're looking at?

u/DreadGrrl · 1 pointr/Swimming

I use a metal Speedo competition nose clip which stays on really well. As a bonus, I’m able to position it around my nostril piercings.


Otherwise, maybe a snorkel mask would help you?

u/Nitsua87 · 1 pointr/triathlon

I can't recommend one of these enough. I've been using mine for two weeks now, and it's very reassuring to know that you've got something to rest on when cramping or winded. Money well spent.

u/ScubaSteve_ · 1 pointr/Swimming

i was thinking of maybe getting some of these http://www.amazon.com/FINIS-2-35-003-Zoomers-Gold-Yellow-Zoomers/dp/B004O6G9W4 and a kickboard. feel like that could work for a good while no?

u/mdm17 · 1 pointr/Swimming

I've had a similar new swimmer experience as you trying to swim free style for distance.

Pull buoy was great, but I used it too much.

So I graduated to fins (http://www.amazon.com/FINIS-2-35-003-Zoomers-Gold-Yellow-Zoomers/dp/B004O6G9W4), but tried to consciously not get hooked on using them more than whole stroke swimming based on my aforementioned pull buoy addiction. Fins are still lots of fun, but I use them sparingly.

From there, I went to using kick board in between sets and a LOT at the end of workouts. My basic goal being to get the muscle memory in place (my kick, like yours, was only good for short distances) so that I can kick without thinking about it. As has been stated above, it's really all about body position (mostly head and hips for me). This last piece worked wonders for me.

Good luck!

u/Frubens · 1 pointr/Fishing

I'd recommend this rod, doesn't get much more inexpensive than $15.

I purchased it a few months back and then my roommate couldn't resist and got one as well. Just bought another for my girlfriend.

It's the perfect thing for hiking or just keeping in your trunk as you mentioned.

u/5uper5kunk · 1 pointr/Fishing

I agree that telescoping is more convenient then a multipart, but every cheap telescoping rod I have laid hands on has been real shitty feeling. I fished with a Eagle Claw Telescoping rod as my hiking rod for my first 2-3 years fishing and while I caught a bunch of fish on it, it's really only suitable for treble hook lures, it's very very challenging to get a hookset with a single hook once you get above panfish size. It's not the worst way to spend $16, but it's not a great rod for much.

This Kastking rod has floating guides, which is good, but their marketing leaves a bad taste in my mouth. They do sales all the time so it might be worth poking around.

I have this Okuma Travel Rod and I like it a lot, but I swear it was like $50-60 when I bought it a few years ago. I got it off of ebay, so I might have just gotten lucky.

If you are just going to use it for a single hike then it doesn't make sense to spend much, but a cheap one that breaks just become dead weight you have to lug around. You could just bring a hundred feet of mono, some bobbers, some hooks, and some split shots and just use it as a hand line or cut a cane pole.

u/peteandrepete · 1 pointr/sex
u/bigshotgunal · 1 pointr/Swimming

I use this pair of aqua sphere's.


Quiet cheap basic design and look, keeps out of the way and doesn't let water in. They are crystal clear so not great for out door swimming. Okay clarity out of water great under.

I swim about a 1 mile a day and they have lasted me without issue for nearly a year. No leaks, no fog, no flipping or falling off.

Your goggles may be too tight really with well fitted goggles the seal should be maintained without strapping them to your face that hard. YMMV if you dive however! Also the design is fairly imposing and looks like it'll press all over your face.

Another important cause of headache in swimmers is a sinus issues due to chlorinated water getting up in there (incorrect breathing techniques and increased time underwater when you push your self too hard). Just bear this in mind if you have on going issues with headache particularly around the eyes even if you switch goggles or stop using them.

u/az4z3l · 1 pointr/Fitness

I swam throughout high school and I still swim a lot in college. I have to use contacts as I am more or less blind without them. I usually wear these but lately I have been using these.

Both work well. Basically any pair of goggles that are made for competition/performance will work fine with contacts.

u/DannyDougherty · 1 pointr/Swimming

They're pretty cheap, I'd recommend picking them up to see if they work for you (some people love them, some people hate them).

If you like them, pick up a bungee cord. They'll last a long time and when they do wear, you can just replace the cord.

I usually keep 2 normal pairs and a mirrored in my bag, plus an assortment of extra lenses that I just need to reassemble.

u/RossLH · 1 pointr/fffffffuuuuuuuuuuuu

Somebody else linked tothese earlier. They're the best you can get. Custom fit, cheap as hell, if they leak it's because you didn't build them to fit your head quite right.
