Im no expert but I think if you’re just laying around, I’d take the halter strap off and just let it hang down. Possibley start tanning (fake n’ bake) in between your weekends outside that way you can keep the tan lines down to a minimum.

I would just try to find a super supportive strapless top.  There are plenty out there!

Or, you can find a thinner strap halter and then use sunblock like it’s your job.

I’m sucking it up and went to Target and got a cheap strapless suit for my bachelorette weekend at the beach (I’m a DD so strapless really doesn’t support AT ALL but I won’t have tan lines in my strapless wedding dress).  It just for a few days – I think that is really going to be your best option.

Buy some spraytan/ selftanning lotion and put it on a cotton ball and apply it to the “white” spots

I think it depends on how tan you are already. But I would say you should just wear sunblock and try not to get tan at all. It is so difficult to get a controlled tan while doing activities other than specifically sunbathing outside. To avoid any burning or tan lines, I’d continually apply sunblock. You can always do indoor tanning to get a controlled tan if that’s what you want. I’ve been indoor tanning for a month and its been working great.

This is gunna sound weird but you know those boob tube tops…you can get one to put over your bikini top then tuck the bikini straps into it. I am top heavy and that’s the only way I use  not get tan lines

Not sure your exact size, but I LOVE JCrew’s strapless bathing suits. They make some of them in D-Cup, or you can just get a regular Large or XL. I think they are extremely supportive….its the only kind of swimsuit I will buy now!

Also – All of their sale right now is 30% off with promo code EXTRA30. If you decide to order from them, read the order closely before submitting to make sure it isn’t final sale…they do that sometimes on sale items.

If you really, really don’t think strapless will work, I agree with pulling the straps down. Maybe put on a strapless dress over your halter bathing suit, then pull the straps down? This way you have support, and the only area not getting tan will be covered up by your wedding dress. I ALWAYS get some kind of tan line if I have my straps up, even with the highest SPF sunscreen I can buy.

Have fun on all your trips!!

I had some bikini strap lines as well, don’t worry, the week before the wedding I just used St. Tropez Bronzing Mousse and they disappeared!  Best stuff out there.

I have the same issue…D Cup..I just bought 2  bandeau tops from victorias secret..they aren’t the most amazing support, but i only take the strap off when i am laying down and it works for what i need it to do..not give any lines!

Get a bandeau that has an optional halter strap.  That way you can tan with the halter strap off, but when you get up to walk around, put the strap back on for a little added support…
