What To Wear to a Spray Tan

What To Wear to a Spray Tan | What I’m Wearing

What To Wear to a Spray Tan | What I’m Wearing

I used to be a weekly spray tanner. I even dubbed Thursdays ‘Tan and Thai Thursday’ as my weekly ritual would be to get a spray tan after work and then order Thai takeaway for dinner! A fun little ritual, pre-children. Then, when I was pregnant with Hannah I stopped spray tanning, and I’ve only had a a few since then (not while pregnant though!).  Although I’ve learned to embrace a far less bronzed look, when the lovely Brooke from Little Tanning Dress approached me to try out one of her  Little Tanning Dresses, I jumped at the chance to try the dress (and to get a spray tan!). I don’t have any events on this weekend however seeing it’s the last weekend of summer I thought why not? I always get my spray tans done at Lush at New Farm, Brisbane and in my opinion they’re the best around. Dedicated tan rooms and all you could need for a great spray tan. So this morning I enjoyed a child-free 45 minutes while I got a spray tan and I wore this perfect dress by Little Tanning Dress. 
When I used to tan weekly, I didn’t have anything nearly as nice to tan in, but I always wore black. This fabric, however, does not cling at all and is very slinky and comfortable. It also doesn’t crease and does not blot or absorb the tan like other fabrics can. It’s also very versatile. You could easily wear this dress out for dinner with heels, or pair it with some sandals and sunnies like I have and wear out for coffee or shopping. And this style is also breastfeeding friendly and you can wear a real bra with it too. Did I tell you the best news? It’s under $50! 
Little Tanning Dress has also very generously offered a discount code for Pretty Chuffed followers – use ‘CHUFFED20’ for 20% off at the checkout! 
If you’ve never had a spray tan before, or have had mixed results in the past, here’s my six top tips to getting a great spray tan: 
1. Think ahead. If you have an event Saturday evening, it’s best to book in for the Thursday or Friday night. That way the tan will look more natural and would have fully developed by the event. There is also overnight or rapid tans available now, which means (if getting a rapid tan) you can wash off before bed and no more brown sheets!
2. Go to a reputable salon. It’s important to get spray tanned by someone who knows what they are doing. You do not want a patchy tan as it can be difficult to remove. Ask around, and book in somewhere that specialises in tans. 
3 Exfoliate. The night or day before your tan, exfoliate your skin using a body wash and an exfoliating glove. Moisturise the day before, but not just before your tan. And, if you wash your hair just before your tan, you must again exfoliate to ensure any soap or shampoo has been removed from your skin. 
4. Remove hair the day before. This is to make sure your skin has settled after the removal and the tan will be more even. And hair removal after the tan may remove your tan, too!
5. Wear black or dark colours/prints. I always wore a loose black dress to my tan, however the range from Little Tanning Dress is perfect! 
6. Moisturise! It’s important to keep moisture to your skin to ensure the tan stays nice and even. Moisturising will also make the tan last longer. 
Also: if you are breastfeeding, ensure you wear a proper bra or bikini top while getting tanned as you do not want your little one getting tan on them while feeding! I wear a normal black bra which I tuck to be ‘strapless’ while getting the tan. 
So, here’s how I wore the Little Tanning Dress Emmy short dress for my tanning appointment this morning (note: I wore Havaianas to the appointment however once I showered afterwards I changed shoes).

LITTLE TANNING DRESS – A REVIEW (+ DISCOUNT FOR READERS)

Like so many great ideas, Little Tanning Dress started out of necessity. Busy boutique owner, Brooke Jones, needed to have something fashionable she could wear to her tanning appointments and in her store. But there was nothing on the market that would preserve her tan and her style. So she created the Little Tanning Dress. A stylish black dress made from a polyester/spandex blend that doesn’t blot or absorb tanning products. As an added bonus it doesn’t crease either

Since then the little tanning dress has expanded into a range of styles, including the Jessie jumpsuit (gifted) I am wearing here. There are also some very cute tank tops for the tan-aholics out there.

I absolutely love this jumpsuit. And I will definitely be wearing it outside of tanning and spa appointments. It’s quite cool to wear and the perfect blank canvas for plenty of styling play.

I chatted to Brooke about Little Tanning Dress as I love a successful business woman story. Brooke’s background in fashion buying was invaluable as her company started to grow and one design evolved into a range. While all garments are free sized, Brooke felt it was important that the lengths vary to accommodate different heights. As a boutique owner she knows the frustrations of shorter girls buying maxi dresses. As a tall woman herself, she knows the importance of that extra inch. I am 178cm tall and a size 10/12 and the jumpsuit fits perfectly but I would go with a tall maxi.

The thing that struck me about the Little Tanning Dress range was the price. Each dress is $49.95, which I think is amazing for the quality (and I am one of those never-pay-retail sorts). While the little tanning dress started life solving style and tanning problems, it’s gone on to become an essential piece in travel and maternity wardrobes. The dresses are crease-free with plenty of room for a growing belly. Because they are made out of a fabric similar to swim wear (but much lighter weight) they also wash and dry easily.

If you are in the market for a Little Tanning Dress, head over to theonline store and have a look.

Fake Tan Tips from Styling You

Little Tanning Dress recently received the 'Tick of Approval' from Styling you blogger Nikki Parkinson. She wrote about the 15 Best Fake Tan Tips for 2016 to ensure you get the best fake tan possible. Little Tanning Dress was certainly the most popular solution to ensure you don't rub or smudged your tan. Please read below about how 'Little Tanning Dress' can help you and your tan! 
 - Take dark, loose clothing to change into after your tan. Oh and leave the bra and undies off. They will just rub off what’s been sprayed on. A longKaf.Tanned kaftan has been my saviour in this department. I simply slip this on, head straight home and wait out the two hours until I can shower and dress normally. I’ve now started usingthis dress from Little Tanning Dress.
