Do you think chubby women look better if their tanned?

I know this sounds silly but I am a bigger girl and very light skinned. I have been thinking about going tanning even though I haven't been in over 10 years. I have been trying to lose weight and have lost alot but still have alot to go. Also does tanning make strech marks look worse, better, or about the same?

  • I prefer a little bit of color, but I use the mystic tan. Tanning makes your skin lose it's elasticitly, so when you do lose weight you look like and old leather purse...

  • This again?
    no. Stretch marks do not tan so they'd stand out more against brown skin

  • Me personally I like lighter skin. I hate what I look like with a tan. LOL but when I get tan (Im a swimmer so in the summer I get super dark) my strech marks looks the same. :( BBOOO I wish they would just go away all together. :)

  • i am not sure about the whole stretch marks thing but I think it helps to be a little tanned. when I get tanned in the summer I notice my face looks thinner.

  • ....better if they're tanned? (Not their)
    Tanning booths cause skin cancer. I know...I love them too but I would try a self-tanning lotion.
