Do you think having a tan makes you/anyone look smaller? do you feel that tan people can get away with wearing smaller clothing (short shorts) even if they are over-weight?

  • Nope. To me, tanning only makes a person look more fake, not more skinny. I don't want to see fake tan fat bulging from short shorts either.... no sausages slipping their casing please.

  • I'm not sure, but when I'm tan (I go from being white as snow to Jersey Shore tan without the orange really easily) I often get asked, "Have you lost weight?"

    Not sure I really notice, but I guess other people do!

  • What? No. Overweight people that are tan just look like overweight tan people and thin people that are tan just look like thin tan people.

  • I think those same fat tan people probably use the same logic for long hair.

  • I think people look better tan, but don necessarily smaller. Natural tan not tanning bed tan though.

  • No but I do think it helps fat people with stretch marks look better. It evens out the skin tone.

  • I'm not fat but I feel that I look better with a tan. But I use "fake tan foam", not a tanning bed.
