Probably an unpopular opinion, but I made a pre-emptive strike against tan lines this year by going to the tanning salon and tanning topless. When I’m out and about in the sun, I wear SPF 50 sunscreen on my arms and chest. I don’t mind the smell, and since I use the spray variety, the smell isn’t that bad, anyway. Nothing a little body mist can’t fix.

vip0802:  my wedding was the 2nd week of September and I wore strapless dresses all summer long. Except when I went to work, i wore my normal work clothes, but when I was out at the beach or just walking around, I made sure to wear a strapless dress

My wedding was last summer. I only wore strapless bathing suits, and was dilligent with the SPF. I am always really good about hats, too, which I’m sure helped.

My wedding is in July. I have told my friends I refuse to go to the beach until after the wedding. This sucks bc I love the beach but I do not want tan lines. I have started going tanning 1x per week since I have olive skin and I hold a tan pretty well and I just want a base. My Fiance is white as a ghost. we are having a Destination Wedding in Jamaica and we are both forbidden from laying on the beach until after the wedding which is about 2 days after we get there lol. I’m more afraid he will get a horrible burn and all the money we paid for the photographer will be wasted bc I do not want to be taking photos with a lobster! Lol

vip0802:  Strapless dresses, some places still sell tube tops as well. I plan on starting tanning because I have psoriasis so the UV is suppose to help it out on top of the meds I am taking. Ihave avoided going out in the sun and when I have, I have used sun screen. Its gonna be a LONG summer since the wedding is in September haha.

I was going to attempt this with sunblock, but the new medication they have me on makes me a burn magnet. I’m darker than sin already go endurance athletics!

Lots and lots of sunblock and shade!!! Wide brimmed hat and sleeves sounds like a good plan.
