Have you ever had a spray tan?

I'm going tomorrow to get a spray tan for the first time. I have no clue what to expect or even what I'm suppose to wear.

Just wondering if anybody had any advice so I might know what to expect.

  • My friend and I are going this week. I don't want to go nake cause, well, I've nurtured two kids and things don't perk where they used to, ya know??? :P So I think I'll wear an old bra that I don't care to get sprayed. Think that's ok?? She's done it many times and looks really nice. I work i n a cancer center...trust me, it's WAAAAAyy better than the sun or the cancer beds (aka tanning beds)

  • I don't know if God intended me to be white or not but I've done it many times. You're going to strip down to whatever you want, most people go naked. Someone sprays a moist layer of tan on you, you stand there alone in a room with fans until you're dry and you get dressed and go home. It does smell a little strange and you can't shower for 24 hours but you'll look like you've spent a week on the beach. I actually looked really good for a couple weeks but then it started to wear off unevenly and can be unsightly for a couple days. Good Luck.

  • I have not...
    but, I don't think it's anything weird. you just can't shower for like 24hrs or something like that...and in that 24hrs I think they smell funny...(I had a friend in HS who got one once..lol)

  • Yes, just remember to take a shower, shave & exfoliate before you spray tan. Also do not spray tan on a day when you will be outside/sweating. Good luck!

  • you have to shower, exfoliate, and shave if you havnt. then you have to take something to put on after the spray tan like silk material not cotton because you dont want it to come offand loose fitting.

  • They've come a long way. Just choose something like dark loose shorts and a tank or something then you can have your bathing suit underneath if you want.
