Tan Lines and Wedding Dresses


Thursday, May 2, 2013

When I went wedding dress shopping, I never thought about how the style I wanted would affect my "tanning" sessions at the beach this year.  I am very good about wearing sunscreen, but sometimes I get a little too much sun while walking Walter, gardening or even sitting outside for lunch.

I chose a strapless dress which means I need to be very careful about tan lines this summer.  I want some color as I don't want to be a pasty bride, but it comes at a cost.  I have a few bandeau bikinis and triangle tops.  The bandeau bikinis are good for the chest area, but with the wide strap in the back, will it show the tan lines on the back?  It is a better option to wear the triangle tops and untie them to avoid the lines?  Should I not worry as much and use self tanner a week before?

So many options.  I read that self tanner can rub off on a dress and that seems to be a no-go for me.  Unless someone, anyone has suggestions on products that won't rub off through sweat and normal wear and tear.

I have been coveting two bikinis from Victoria Secret.  Both of them are the new sort of bandeau types that have the under wire in them.  I really want these two bikinis.





I am in love with both bikinis, but the pink one is so pretty.  I love the beading and think it will be the perfect amount of sexy on our honeymoon.  But I haven't pulled the trigger in buying it.

What swimwear will you be wearing this summer to help with the tan lines and prepping for your wedding.

    1. Your dogs name is Walter too?! Such a cute name. Sunscreen is key and a hat. I can't recommend both more.
