Well, of course, in “Live Free or Die” New Hampshire, the top part is completely and totally optional. Despite all the clamour that would indicate otherwise New Hampshire, as a State (like so many other States), freely PERMITS female toplessness — without caveats.
But there are indeed strict laws about keeping all parts below the waistline covered to an extent — for both genders.
All that said bikinis are not that prevalent in New Hampshire — and in my experience they have never been in the 30 years I have lived here (15 of that waterfront). And you can’t blame it on the cold. It is in the 90°F (32°C) today. IF I go to any of the Lake Winnipesaukee beaches I am sure the bikini quotient will be under 50% — possibly way under.
Given that the the subtitle of this blog does say “A life of granite in NH” I feel that it is my duty to share such insights with YOU.
