    WELL, I found this and some of them are not the most stylish, but some I like and I am super excited:

    Solar Tan Thru Swimsuits All-over Tan Thru Swimwear for Women and Men

    Anyone ever wore one?
    why not just hit the tanning salon for a few weeks before you go? that's what I'm currently doing

      Melissa you are so funny . . . those mankini's are scary LOL

      And NABUMBAH, it's the tan lines I'll get in Mexico the week before the wedding that I was referring to. Yes, I may tan before I get there but I'll be in the sun when I get there too.

      Guess I'll be the guinea pig, I'll let you ladies know how that goes. . .

          That's what I call them because they crack me up but I'm sure there's a proper term . . . anyone?

            This is what the website calls them: "Mardi Gras Men's Solar Tan Thru Swimsuit" ... and the description... "Solar tan thru men's swimsuits are constructed with breathable material that won't confine you. " lol
            "This Solar tan thru men's bathing suit is a 1" side racer with built in front contour panel and a Brazil cut back. With a men's tan thru bathing suit, you'll look great and you can forget about tan lines!"

            Is it sad that I laugh my @ss off when I read that and look at the picture??!! Maybe it's just late....

            lol

            I think if I switch up some swim suits I should be able to avoid major tan lines. i just care about tan lines in my wedding dress.

              Ya, there's nothing like looking at a picture of a bride and noticing her tan lines w/her strapless dress right away! Yikes! I feel slightly the same about a BM with tan lines - is it fair to ask her to tan ahead of time so this doesn't happen, or is that too bridezilla-ish?

                Yeah that description and pic is hilarious!! My FI could care less if his package matches his legs LMAO!!

                And hell no it's not too bridezilla-ish to ask your bm's to try and avoid those tanlines . . . mine know what time it is on that one!! We have the right to make sure everything matches but all we can really do is suggest it and hope they follow through. I think anything more than that may be getting into bridezilla territory

                  It might be one step over the line

                  hee hee hee.. what about just telling her about your efforts to avoid tan lines since you're wearing a strapless... maybe she'll make the connection.

                  What about a self-tanner you can apply the night before wedding to untanned spots?

                  ooh, good point, I never thought about the tan lines issue - I will have to consider this for when I'm packing
