Tan Lines don't go with the dress! Eek, gasp!

Recommended Posts

It just occurred to me. I got two really cute swim suits and they are Halter top styles. Those are typically the only kind I wear to support "the girls".

 

I was reading another post about wearing a strapless suit, but I already spent some bucks on the ones I have without thinking about the consequences. OMG! Tan lines! This for some reason did not occur to me! Helllooo!!! Strapless wedding gown and the beach/pool on the days before, hmm those don't mix too well, huh?

 

Any ideas on what to do if I get some tan lines? Any products or tricks you all can share?

 

I am currently tanning to get some color...no suit of course...ha! But any thoughts on how to cover those suckers up just in case?

 

Thanks! smile03.gif

if its a halter why not just tuck the straps into the chest area for the days before the wedding? i know what you mean, it might not look as fab as you want but at least your wedding pics will be awesome! that is what i am doing

i thought about this too and decided i need to buy a bandeau (sp?) to rid of any possible tan lines. but in the past what i used to do was buy the self tanning lotions and apply that to the areas that didn't tan... it's worked but it's also not perfect.

I totally feel your pain!!!! All my bathing suits are halter (hence its the most common) and my dress is strapless and my BM dresses have spaghetti straps!! I think we'll all have crazy tan lines unless the girls on BDW can give us a great solution. Thanks for posting this!

you can't do this sitting or standing up!

I personally go to the tanning bed to start off my summer cause I don't like tan lines period and I wear different types of shirts. And especially cause I have a strapless wedding dress!

Just don't do the instant tan. I had a client last year who did this tan-in-a-bottle tan and it all started to run at noon,when we were taking pictures under the sun. Your wedding is in a month. 5-6 tanning sessions and it should be enough to hide the lines.

Even if you have a base tan - you will still have lines. And it isn't really an easy fix in photoshop either. I would suggest getting a suit that lets you slip the straps off while laying - and then cover up when you are up. I know that stinks - sad.gif

I decided to buy a strapless bathing suit because I heard that the tan lines would show in our pictures. If you decide to wear the halter I would apply a lot of sunscreen to not get a tan prior to the wedding.

You can still get a tan w/ sunscreen. You should wear sunscreen period, even on a daily basis its good for you!! If you have a good base tan before spending alot of time in the sun you won't get noticeable lines, if any. thats why i use a tanning bed, like in my previous post cause I wear all kinds of strappy shirts during the summer once I get a base tan I have no problems w/ lines and I live in MT the only thing to do is be outside! Hiking, floating the river, at our lakehouse, etc!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
