  • Not really a crazy "tan" but I got burnt really really bad.. we went to Adventure Landing to the splash area.. We stayed for like 3-4 hours.. I put sunblock on my girls.. didn't want them to get burnt. But not me!! I had a horrible sun burn and it got worse and worse.. it was so raw I had to wear tank tops for about 2 weeks!! OUCH!!

  • tan lines are sexy in the right places... the key is to make sure you don't have them around the neck area, so wear a strapless bathing suit

  • FlipFlop tan lines on the top of my feet. I just let it fade by wearing sneakers.

  • I usually just burn and hardly ever tan. The craziest I had was from my sandals.

  • When I was in boot camp, I only had them on the backs of my hand. Nowadays, any tan line is a crazy tan line because I avoid the sun like a vampire would.

  • I tan like crazy. I don't really burn unless I have been outside for more than 8 hours. I usually wear a strapless top when I go out, so no tan lines up top, and I don't wear short shorts (blech) or capris, so I don't worry too much about people looking at my ass when I'm out and about. Usually people just ask me how I get so tan, and have to explain that I am allergic to sun screen, and am naturally olive skinned, so I just tan. Even at my whitest in the winter, I am still more tan than my husband :D Hahahaha.
