I have some tan lines on my chest and back and my wedding dress is strapless. Obviously I don’t want my tan linea to Show. I thought about doing a spray tan but I’m afraid I’ll turn out orange. I don’t want to be a darker shade, I just want my tan lines to go away. I also thought about buying that bronzing lotion? What are you all doing to cover your tan lines?

you can try spray tan, i would go to a proffesional not a booth. They usually do a good job and dont turn out orange, I wouldnt recommend trying to blend it yourself bc that part may be orange. Another thing is you can try to cover it up with make up on your wedding day.

You can try exfoliating the tan lines. Shedding those cells faster will make them fade. There is always makeup.

a professional spray will get rid of them and color match you.
bronzing lotion runs the risk of getting EVERYWHERE. and booths are the ones that ususally turn orange.
i would spray a month before and see if you like it, then maybe 2-3 days before.

I used Jergen’s Natural Glow Daily Firming Moisturizer in the darkest shade. It blends really naturally since it’s lotion, and you can build it up gradually. It’s pretty inexpensive if you want to try it out!

How far away is your wedding and how bad are the tan lines? (you didn’t post a pic) How old are they?
Tomato juice fades tan lines, soak some washcloths in tomato juice and soak.
Exfoliation will also help- you can use any body scrub, or mix lemon juice with epsom salt- rub in circular motions with your hands or use with a sponge

pinkrose23 To be honest you should have thought of that this summer and worn SPF and strapless. It will show in your dress- a spray tan won’t be able to cover it up, just make you (and your tan lines) darker. I was so stressed out about this before my September wedding that I wore unflattering bandeau tops all year and made sure to reapply sunblock. The girl who did my tan was complaining about girls who come in wanting everything covered and how it’s just not possible. I guess this is more for those commenting to follow as I don’t think you can do much.

Hello! My wedding just passed almost two weeks ago and I got a spray tan. I didn’t have visible tan lines because I was very careful this summer about tanning in strapless and making sure I had sunblock when I was wearing straps.
I did, however, go to get a spray tan because I wanted to make my butt and boobs the same color as my legs, chest and arms lol just for honeymoon purposes 🙂 Sad to tell you, it did not even out my tan. It just made each part a shade darker, which did make them not look as bad as the brown and extremely pale contrast, but for your situation, your tan lines will still be visible.
about the tanning lotions, I wouldn’t do it. There are some that are good, but they are tricky to apply and can go horribly wrong. I have had it happen to me before.
oh and I went with a person to spray tan me, not in a booth. I did not look orange at all. I had many people compliment me on my bronze. Good luck!
