Molded seats and loungers have a lot of dazzle and eye appeal. They look so comfortable! Be careful about buying a highly stylized spa with armrests, bucket seats, or other form-fitting shapes. Why? Bodies! We're tall, we're short, we're big, we're little. If a bucket seat fits one person, it's much too small or large for someone else. Beautifully molded loungers look as if they're really going to support your back and be extra comfortable. Remember, water supports you! Maybe the spa is so shallow you need to lie down to be covered in water. Your body weighs only four to five pounds in the water. It takes just a pound or two of jet pressure or bubbles to lift you out and float you away. Some manufacturers try to eliminate float-away problems by making stirrups or recesses for your feet and arms. You wedge your heels in, and you wedge your arms in, and there you are, all wedged in, ready for ...comfort? Loungers also take up so much space that they limit the number of people who can use the spa at one time.
