    Ok.. going to mexico getting married in a strapless dress.. spend a week being stressed over not getting tanlines prior to the WD 6 days into the vacation...

    ok.. I can deal with that... but my stress is the next 8 days of my vacation... STILL worrying about tanlines because of me AHR...

    1. will a tanning bed even it out (ie strap lines from bikini) if not too bad..

    2. anyone recommend a good self tanner for evening it out??

    I'm not tiny but small enough (size to wear a biniki but need to hold these C cup girls up.. I need straps...

    Other than being aware of the straplines and undoing the straps when possible to even out the tan.. is there any suggestions

      Tan lines will show up in your pics. Tanning beds might help somewhat, but I'd try alternative options.
      I've used Dove Energy Glow self-tanner with success. You will start to see pretty good results after the 3rd day. This should give you enough time before your wedding to see if it will work for you.
      Another option is to find a make-up artist that uses airbrushing techniques. This works really well!

      Good Luck!

        I actually just bought a really good strapless (bandeau top) bikini. I am definitely not tiny in that area but found a really good one that holds me in really well. I love it and now I won't have to worry about tan lines at all!

          We did the bad thing and went tanning at the salon for about a month before we left for Maui. I didn't want to worry about the tan lines thing at all.

            Both tanning beds and spray tan will even out your tan lines. Your best option to even out tan lines though is air brush tanning.

            I suggest using a lot of sun screen and wearing a string bikini top to minimize tan lines.

            The best self tanner I have used is Lancome. It goes on evenly and the color is natural. Oh, it doesn't smell bad either which is a huge issue with a lot of the other brands on the market!

              I have used Estee Lauder Go Tan Sunless Tan Towelettes to cover up tan lines and they work amazing!

                  What brand was the swim suit? I need to start looking for a strapless top. Otherwise, I am staying out of the sun 3 three days before the wedding. I was also looking at going to the tanning beds because last year's tan lines never went away!!!

                    I was also worried about this, but I tanned in the beds before and got a nice even tan then used SPF 50 the whole time I was there. No tan lines on my wedding day!
