I'm going to a spray tanning party at my neighbour's house next weekend. I've got the invite card with the practical stuff on (dark clothes, flip flops etc) but wondered if anyone else could share their experience? Do I have to get totally naked? Do you get a choice of shades? Anything else I ought to know? I've never had one before but it's all part of my mission to become just a little more high maintenance!

Ooooh how fun a spray tan party!
It's up to you if you go naked, I never have, I wear the paper knickers / thong they give you. I like to see a difference in skin colour but I always go topless.
Shave, exfoliate & moisturise in the run up to the day of the tan. On day of tan top up shaving if you need to but no deodrants or creams on your skin.
Make sure if you have big boobs to lift them up so you don't get white patches underneath. Likewise remember to bend over when they do your bum so you don't have a white line under your bum cheeks.
They should use a barrier cream on your hands, knees, ankles, and hairline.
I tend to wear a strapless beach dress afterwards so less rubbing and I have been known to justuse the feet patches they give you home but flip flops are a good idea.

Thanks Kat - definitely won't be needing to lift the boobs here unfortunately! Just need to make sure I don't end up quite as tanned as my lovely neighbour, H would spend the whole weekend laughing at me
To be fair, I think it's just another excuse for a girly night drinking wine!

Sounds like good advice from Kat! enjoy your night!

In that case make sure you are one of the first ones in, you don't want to be tipsy when you need to pose like Superman

Will do Kat, the chances of me being tipsy are fairly high if previous parties in our road are anything to go by!

Ahhh, the Superman pose! Lol! Once you have a spray tan you will always want one!
