Understanding Tan Thru Suits

It is that time of year when the swimsuits come out and the sweatshirts get tucked away. Once you begin shredding the layers of clothes, one of two things may cross your mind. First, you think that you need to submerge yourself in sunscreen. Second, you need to work on your tan. Most sunbathers are unhappy with the taunting tan-lines produced after a day under the sun. Today, we are given the option to choose a swimsuit that offers a flattering fit without having to worry about those lingering lines. The revolutionary "tan thru" swimsuits allow women to feel comfortable soaking up the sun, all while achieving that summertime glow. Here's how:

Tan thru swimwear is a new and innovative addition to the bathing suit family. The concept of the swim suit lies solely in a fabric that has been patented worldwide, which contains microscopic pores allowing the sun rays to shimmy in. This magic fabric allows up to 80% of the sun's rays to penetrate through, designed to help you achieve your golden brown tan. This fabric can be found in an array of one-pieces and bikinis to help maximize on the sunshine and minimize your tan-lines. These beach bum benefits allow women to maintain an even tan and perfect pigmentation without baring all throughout the sunny seasons.

To allow the science of the sun exposure, many, many microscopic pores are vital. These holes in the fabric cause a sense of transparency when the swimsuit is held up to the light. In order to preserve your dignity and maintain modesty, many tan thru suits are designed in vibrant prints and bold colors. These are used to distract the eye and contradict the otherwise transparent material. When the special prints are worn against the skin, they work in alliance to create coverage and concede the sun rays.

However, with the thrill of the revolutionary tan comes a precaution. Due to these sun absorbent features, additional sun protection is highly recommended. Since every part of your body is essentially being exposed to the sun, it is important to take that in to consideration when applying sun screen. Tan through swimwear provides little sun protection equivalent to minimal levels of sunscreen, depending on how much the fabric is stretched. Mix your favorite tan thru swim suit with an appropriate level of SPF and you'll be on your way to a beautiful bronze.

This revolution in swimwear is changing how suntan enthusiasts prepare for a day in the sun. Women are now able to feel comfortable, confident, and covered while enriching an even golden tan. When you are headed out for a day of soaking up the sun, lather up in sunscreen, reapply as needed, and let the swimsuit and sunshine work their magic!

My husband and I like the idea of tan through swimwear, He usually wears a hipster type. Are these likely to be more revealing than normal? He’s pretty small and is concerned that they’ll be very revealing. His usual ones are lined, which help hide his shortcomings.

Hi Julie!

Nowadays, hipster type suits are kind of revealing but mostly are lined.
