    I only tan in the sun, but I set an alarm to flip every half hour!

    I’m a flipper, don’t want to be tan in the front and pasty white in the back!

    Edit: Oh in a tanning bed no, I never flip.

    I don’t flip because what about my face? I don’t want it ON the tanning bed, and my neck would snap if I tried to hold it up for ten minutes. My back side is darker but not so much darker that anyone would notice.

    I lay on my back the whole time. Occasionally I do a standup booth

    I would always get weird white circles where my cheeks push together (attractive image I know). So I woud flip just for a couple of minutes.

    Lay down beds, I just lay on my back. I prefer stand up though.

    I use those standing tanning beds.. they are the best for getting you all around. In the laying down beds I always got lines on the side of my legs.

    I did a bed twice and stayed in one place on my back and I got a white line down my right leg. I then switched to stand up and never went back. It was much more even and less creepy coffin like!

    I equally divide the time between my back, front, and both sides

    I was always told in “good” beds there is no need to flip.

    I was told by several people that work at tanning salons that it’s a good idea to flip.  Some of the beds have bulbs that are different intensities and flipping helps prevent pressure points (those awkward white circles).  I try to regularly get my sides as well since I tan in a lay down bed or I’ll upgrade once in a while to the stand up bed.

    ETA: some of these people were friends that told me they often mix old bulbs and new bulbs if they go out at different times, so the intensities may be different even if they are supposed to be the same…

    I have never even thought about flipping…the beds I use are high intensity beds w/a max time of maybe 8-10 minutes, with the same bulbs on the bottom that are on the top. It just wouldn’t make sense to flip.

    @WhatMaeBee:  @joymarie83:  I yse high level beds also but there are still under the arms and other areas that don’t get the same amount of rays.  Think about it – if you lay in one position (even if you raise your arms) how are all of the areas getting equal amounts when some are closer and some are far away?
