    Good ideas girls. Yeah, laying out with the suit tucked in should work, but not so much for walking around....wardrobe malfunction!? Also, I plan to wear lots of sunscreen (always do with this Colorado Sun!) so good call. Yep! One month to go, so I just started tanning like 2-3 times week...hopefully i can build up a good base.

    I should probably look for a strapless suit, but I don't know if it will be enough support...I am top heavy. I have been reading on here to see what kind of suits might work. I wll have to look into that Bandaeux!? I saw that on another thread.

    So thanks for all the suggestions....you girls are so helpful! Love this site!

    Does the make up thing work? Maybe a bronzer? Although, FI is wearing a near white suit...so I am thinking that could be a bad combo, don't want to get any on him.

    I agree...about the spray on tans...I am so scared of those...did you see that one Friends when Ross got his? "I'm an Eight!!!"

        bandeau is really hard w/ DD! Look on this thread. there are a lot of us girls w/ DD. If you want a bandeau for larger mamas go w/ a one piece bandeau!

          Thanks Jac! I didn't want to have to get another new suit...but I think that might be my best option to avoid those ugly tan lines. That link you posted is a great thread!

            I wore halters the days leading up to our wedding. I had tan lines in my strapless dress. Who cares. You're on vacation. There's worse things that could happen, right?

              It drives me crazy when I have tan lines so I got a bandeau top so I wouldn't have tan lines for the wedding but I think if you have tan lines a bronzer or self tanner would take care of the lines.

                My girls are bigger the 'DD' so I am pretty sure strapless is out for me! Letting the girls loose like that could end up with someone hurt!!!!

                If anyone knows of a place that has strapless in larger bra sizes please post.

                  I feel the same way. I have never worn a strapless suit in my life...not even when the girls were smaller. I am afraid that I wont have the support I need so my girls are looking good... and not to mention no peep shows. :)

                    *BUMP*
                    I am SO nervous about tan lines!! I am totally getting a base tan before, but my skin has the ability to get SO dark, I have a feeling they're inevitable. I am busty too, but I was lucky enough to find a corset like top (strapless- Betsy Johnson) but it cuts straight accross the my front and back, and my dress is a sweetheart neck with a bit of a lower back.

                    I'm stressin about this!!!!!

                      OK so maybe I am not the expert on tans or tanning (check out my profile pic LOL) but I think the tucking of the suit straps would be ok. I tan VERY quickly when I get in the sun and lines are a problem for people of color as well. I have a string bikini I will be wearing at the beach and I also need support for the "girls" so I just plan to either tuck it around or use a t shirt/towel to avoid exposing myself when I am laying on my back in the sun. Make sense?
