fDYou have booked your organic spray tan with viva la bronze in Naples, Marco Island, Bonita Springs or Estero and you’re so excited about your glow-up! You have read all of the amazing reviews and seen tons of our client’s beautiful photos in their tans. 

But now you are now wondering… what do I wear during the spray tan?!

Rest assured! Viva La Bronze is here for you and we will break down everything you need to know and your options for what to wear during and after your spray tan!

First things first. We have to talk about tan lines. The beauty of a spray tan is that tan lines are totally optional. Choosing to wear a swimsuit, underwear, bra, or really anything, will result in having prominent tan lines from your spray tan.

If you are tanning for a special event or occasion you’ll want to consider the outfits you’re planning to wear and what tan lines will work for those outfits.

What if you don’t want tan lines but you’re not comfortable being totally nude? Well, we have a few workarounds for that!

You can wear pasties, wear a small thong for tanning in and we can simply move the strap and blend the tan to help minimize any tan line from the strap of the underwear. We also offer a hair net to keep your hair clean from overspray.

You could also wear:

  • Underwear and bra
  • Underwear without bra
  • A swimsuit

You could tuck your suit/bra straps in to help minimize the tan lines.

Please note, that if you spray tan without a bra you will not want to put the bra back on until your first rinse is done! This is critical to avoid smudging the tan, creating unwanted tan lines, and making sure your spray tan develops flawlessly as it was applied.

You will also want to make sure you take all your jewelry off for the spray tan as well. If you have permanent jewelry we can move the jewelry around to make sure there isn’t a significant tan line from the jewelry.

What can I wear after my spray tan?

Let’s keep it loose:

What not to wear:

  • Any tight fitting clothing
  • Leggings
  • Jewelry 
  • Sock & sneakers
  • A bra if you tanned braless
  • Your watch
  • Strappy shoes

Let’s keep in mind your spray tan is sitting on top of your skin, so we want to avoid as much friction as possible!

Now that you know what to wear during and after your spray tan, remember that you also want to avoid any activities that will make you sweat or get wet.

That means no washing dishes, being super careful when drinking anything, and not going outside if it’s raining or really hot. This is the perfect excuse to get some rest, relax, watch your favorite show, read a book, or listen to a podcast. Following this will ensure your tan is perfect!
