    I have terrible terrible tan lines from my bikini (top and bottoms), my bf comes home soon and I want to be golden brown all over for him. I am considering using a sunbed naked, so I am brown all over.

    question is will my tan lines still show, I.e the areas tanned will get darker and the tan lines will start to get darker.

    How many sunbed sessions will it take to get that all over bronzed look without tan lines? I want the perfect broze look as the tan lines will put him off.

    It's highly likely that the tan lines will still show. It's also not an area that I would skin damage (what tanning is...)

    Any partner that complains about tan lines is someone you really don't want to be naked with. He's going to be far more interested in having you topless / naked to complain.

    Haha, the dreaded white bum triangle and headlights! *😂

    I can't see why it wouldn't show. I should think the sunbed would just cause you to tan evenly, if not make the brown bits already browner as they've already caught the sun and are acclimatised to it, especially if your white bits don't normally see any sun.

    Personally, I can stand the triangle or headlights so tend to favour very skimpy bikini bottoms and forego the top where I can or just even lose the whole suit on the right beach.

    If the tan lines put him off then that is sad. There may be some sunshine for you to sunbathe this week depending on where you live, so if you can find a beach or secluded spot, then sunbathe topless somewhere.

    Here is the Barnet weather forecast for this week!

    For you or the OP or any other woman who wishes to avoid 'headlights' there is the sunbathing area by the women's bathing pond in Hampstead, where a couple of young women I know have gone so they can avoid 'headlights' and male attention whilst in the sun.

    I've heard of these ponds but never been (to far away). Didn't realise they allowed all over tans to be gathered there.

    Yes but not a daytime one, an evening swim and sauna.

    No as the event I was at although filmed was mot shown in the end. I met Andrew Welch though and with some other people we had a chat about why so few British people swim or sunbathe without clothes.
