Spray tans and at home self tanner have come a long way. They rarely leave people orange these days. I use Banana Boat in Deep Dark.

Try a professional air brush tan.  I do them all the time and have never been orange.

St Moriz foam tanner (comparable to St Tropez) never leaves me orange.  I have olive undertones.

I get it done a lot in the summer to avoid bathing suit tan lines.

A spray tan will probably still leave tan lines….even airbrush by a pro.


Have you considered a strapless bathingsuit? That’s what I am doing until my wedding.

@thenuggetbride:  agreed on the strapless, and also

Apply more/higher SPF suncreen to your décolletage every time you’re in the sun in that strapless bikini or top to encourage things to even out.

Décolletage skin is thinner and more sensitive; plus you have more melanin-producing cells there if you tan there habitually in the past:  so you’re likely to tan MORE in than area than the rest of your chest & shoulders.

i use either st. moriz or st. tropez & find them both good – i wouldn’t put on loads though, just enough to give a bit of a colour, so it doesn’t come out orange.

otherwise, i think your best bet would be to keep that part of your body out of the sun altogether, as otherwise the part which usually tans will get darker, while the paler part will still look paler. maybe wear a t-shirt instead of a tank top or SPF50 (reapplied regularly) if wearing anything with less coverage.
