  • Or you could pay $20 for a spray tan that will last a few weeks. You can leave your breasts covered with a strapless bathing suit top or something so it doesn't get on your breasts but it gets every where else.

  • Is this sunlight tanning or tanning beds?

    If its out in the sun - go for it...sunlight is important for your health.
