    I actually use the VS bronzing lotion, it's called Beyond Bronze- Radiant Bronze Body Lotion. I absolutely love it but I think they got rid of it so that doesn't help. Matter of fact I'm almost out of it I'm going to see if I can find some on ebay.

      I would use a bronzer not a tanning cream. That way you have more control with it. If you do want a tanning cream the best I've ever used was by estee lauder. But, even a great tanning cream can look bad in the bright sun.

      I have strappy suits & I just alternate them and move the straps around. I usually don't get a tan line around my neck.

      I'm packing tops with thin straps too.

      If you can't avoid them, tan lines can always be photoshopped out.

        Bandeau Top bikini swimsuit designer swimwear bathing suits
        Kinda hard to tell what the ladies will look like in them but might give you an idea of what to look for.

            If you can find a bandeau with an underwire, the girls will look a TON better. They aren't easy to find, and they aren't cheap, but try figleaves.com - Lingerie, Bras, Briefs, Underwear, Swimwear, Hosiery and More.

              Thios are some great suggestions Kat!!! Bandeau is the way to go ladies- have given up on bathing suits with straps unless I am doing a lot of moving around. AN I have not had a tan line in years. I hate them :P I know they can be photoshopped out, but IMHO they look tacky. I am strictly enforcing no tan lines for the BM's...I see so many pics of bridesmaids who laid out in the sun and it just looks awful

                I just bought two at Target that are adorable. I'm going with all strapless suits too. That's the only detail FI knows about the dress since I was fretting about the style of bathing suits.....I bought this one:
                Xhilaration® Heart Bandeau - Ebony : Target
                but taking the middle strap off obviously.
                Xhilaration® Stripe Bandeau Swim Top - Grape/ White : Target

                I also got this style from VS in white and bright yellow:

                Victoria's Secret - Adjustable triangle top

                  I also ordered these Juicy knockoff terry dresses from VS for me and my BMs:

                  You can always put on of those on top of a regular swimsuit and undo the straps and then can tan without showing your girls off.
