The last few years I've been tanning (indoors and out) all over so that I can wear any style of thong (usually a Dore) without having white areas show. This year I've decided to get the tan lines. I'm wearing a Dore low cut thong when I tan and I love the lines. I'll probably lose them when summer gets in full swing because when I wear the very low cut thong, the white will show.What's your vote? Do you like tan lines or a tan all over?

Every year I intend to have some sort of tan line, but the first chance i get to go naked, I do and ruin it.  I hike in a thong or naked sometimes, so it is really easy to have the lines disappear quickly.

I like a small rio or half back string bikini suit tan line. Somehow it's a way of saying "I thong" that you can't avoid when you get down to the bare essentials. I love wearing a thong with this type of tan, and I love to see women doing the same.

Usually I will start to goto the tanning spa about now early april, and tan nude.  When I got back from Florida last year, I had a cool g string line going since I got much darker in the florida sun than the tanning bed.  Most girls Ive dated were really turned on by it when I got back home.

I go for tan lines. If I didn't have any, how would I know how dark I am? I love my little marks. I get a lot of pride and satisfaction from them.

Generally I wear one style of suit all summer long to the keep lines consistent. Last summer I started out with the Feline by Koala, and I've continued to wear that suit almost exclusively since I've moved to Florida.

I have to agree.  I always tan with the same suit at the beginning of the season and then when I switch to a smaller thong my tan lines from the larger suit are visible.  I often get comments that way, "Wow, what a great tan!"

Hi,

It has to be tan lines. Whilst in England and Europe thongs are arguably more acceptable, there is still a big problem.

When I am changing or showering at my health club swimming pool (thongs not allowed) or at my golf club ,my thong tan lines very clearly show that the wearing of thongs is embraced by a very broad spectrum of people.

It is only if people see that  this style of swimwear is preferred by a lot of other people that thongs will become more acceptable.

Regards to all

Have a good summer

Because I wear basically the same cut of swimwear outside all summer long my tan lines tend to become very defined. Without thinking about it I align what I am wearing exactly over the tan lines. It gives the lines definition and I like that but have thought it over and do not know why. The only time it has been a problem is when I was wearing a yellow rio cut bikini that had a single layer back and discovered you could clearly see my tan lines through the yellow material when wet.

My wife hates skimpy swimwear as thongs and strings. Therefore I try to avoid clear tanlines. By changing regularly my suites, I will have only a vague, white area just above the shaft.
Because I am allowed to visit secluded nude beaches when I am on my own, my explanation is that I am protecting my equipment from the sun with some clothing or a handkerchief or the like.
A small lie but everybody is happy.

I do like some tan lines also to know how dark I'm getting.  Plus I don't get a chance to go nude too often and haven't particularly been interested in going to a tanning bed.  But I really don't like tan lines on my back or even on my breasts. I think that looks a little odd.

I like having tan lines to see how the rest of my tan is progressing. I also like the fact that anyone who sees you nude will still see you wear a thong a lot, and it creates quite a bit of interest, even from nudists.

Most of my tanning thongs are similar, so my lines stay well difined.

Although she does not lay out nude my wifes has almost no tan lines. She keeps moving everything around so she gets almost an all over tan so no matter what she wears tan lines do not become a problem. She also has a couple of tan thru suits that she sometimes wears to soften what tan lines she might have.

Some of those who have posted above me on this thread, have expressed a preference for no tan lines and in most such cases they indicated that they don't care for the look of a tan line or want to wear a different cut suit and not have the tan lines show.

But in other areas of this board, people have expressed preferences for no tan lines in ways that said or suggested that their purpose is an overall tan per se (as opposed to just the avoidance of tan lines upsetting the look.) Often this has happened when discussing no side straps, or see through side straps, or "baggies" suits (for men). In these posts the thonger is attempting to eliminate tan lines though the choice of swinwear.

My question for those who have an overall tan as the main objective is: "Why not just tan at a nude beach or other nude-tolearant location?"

It's not likely I'll ever be seen in public in just a thong because I'm simply not comfortable with being that exposed.  If I were Adonis, that would be an entirely different story. However, I would still like to sport a thong tan line this summer to get a rise out of my wife.  The solution is quite simple.  I'll just slap on a thong under a tan through pair of trunks and she'll never be the wiser...until she catches me in the buff. 

I love tan lines (on women) - anywhere from a full back to a g-string.  There comes a sense of excitement  knowing what a woman has worn out for a day of sunning or that she has dared to venture out in nothing but the minimum allowed.  I think wearing a thong yields sex-appeal and the evidence of wearing a thong - namely a tan line gives the same result.

Lately now that I wear g string like pouchless suits to the nude beach I have a g string tan line on the waist with no front tan lines.  The suits I wear with pouches like the VLC cover only the genitals and no skin otherwise. 

Those new "open" design suits from Dore, especially those that are just a shaft sleeve with an opening at the end would give your shaft a tanline at the glans, that would be about the wildest tanline!

Just a follow up on the tan-thru thinig.  It didn' t work quite as well as I'd hoped.  I did manage a very faint triangle tan line but it was gone in a day.  Guess I'll just have to bite the bullet and sport a thong solo.

Definitely tna lines.  I wear several cuts of thong and G-string underware, but always shoot for the same cut when tanning.  I like the looks at the gym and like so many others have said above, it lets me know just how dark I have become.

Since I can't lay out in the back yard naked or wearing a thong, I have developed tan lines from wearing a bikini.  I used to lay in a tanning bed naked to make the tan lines go away.  I have sinced purchased a Prevail Sport Rio bikini that has minimal coverage (at least to me) in the front with small 1/4" string sides.  Makes a very sexy tan line.  The back of the suit is a little more than a 1/2 coverage which is also great for a sexy tan line.  I have some more thongs & bikinis on the way from Prevail Sport and can't wait until I get them!  Did I get distracted?

YES for tan lines!

I prefer tan lines as for me they are the way to judge how your tan is looking, you've got a sort of before and after skin colour right next to each other and judge how your tan is doing and how progress is going.

I started this season and answered this thread with the idea that I would retain my tan lines. Then I decided that it might be neat to go for a more uniform look. for the past several visits to the beach and at my backyard pool, I've been wearing suits that have clear side straps that allow for tanning. I still have a minor mark on my hips, but overall I find that look pleasing.

No tan lines here. To be honest, I'd be embarassed in the locker room. Dark bronze all over is mysterious, and people must wonder how I achieved it, but no comments so far this year, and this has been my best tanning year in some time. Dore's very low cut sliding g-string in blue mesh print gets the job done, even the equipment. No access to a nude beach, but I enjoy the thrill of being minimal at a regular beach. Were that not an end in itself for me, I'd probably opt to spend all my time in my Solar tan-thru 2" racer -- I love its sexy, athletic cut, and I'm comfortable wearing it anywhere. I'd be glad to show off its tan line, and its tan-thru effect would nicely mute the cotton-tail look. So for me its a choice between a speedo-type tan line or none at all, and I've opted for the thrill of getting the latter.

Definately tanlines!

This is the first year I've worn a thong regulary to the beach and I really enjoy the look of the tanlines. It lets me know how my tanning is progressing and it's a great way of saying "I thong" should someone see me naked. In the winter locker rooms everyone will see and should anyone ask there is no way i can back down from the fact that i like to wear thongs, so why bother trying. I think it boosts confidence to say "yearh I thong, SO WHAT"

Well I think a light tan line is ok. I live in England so obviously tanning outdoors isn't an everyday option. I usually go to the salon and go on the sunbeds. When I do this I go nude because I'm in a room on my own so it would be stupid not to. If I get the chance to tan outside be it in England or abroad I will usually wear a thong. Sometimes I go nude but prefer to be in a thong. So I usually end up with only the slightest hint of a thong tan line.

Tanning weather is on the way back here in Australia, on the east coast of NSW anyway, and I'm going for the full-on tan lines this year!

I swim every day through the spring to autumn, and am in no way scared to show the tan lines in the locker room and showers. No real comments yet, and I have actually seen one other guy changing into a thong after his swim.

I really like the look, and the fact you don't have to wear one to show that you do. In fact, they create a lot of interest when you do go nude!

Even in Southern California, there are times when one uses a tanning salon to maintain their tan.  I always wear a thong (usually the same one) in the tanning bed because I like my very distinct tan line.

Tan lines for me even if they are a skinz y-back med size suit!  I live 20 minutes from Fort DeSoto Beach, I know lucky me and I get very dark and stay dark 9 months of  the year, I love the look of having a small line around by cheeks and a small dart in front.

Definitely tan lines. I always wear a g-string on the beach and the thin white lines on my posterior show up beatifully.  I have to strip naked in the change room and it does not bother me showing them. And last time I went to see my doctor she commented on attractive my tan lines were.

I agree with the Skinz Y-back look. I love the definition it gives... plus as others have said... "look I wear a thong". I have two and alternate between them... Thinking about getting a 3rd. Mostly just backyard tanning though I'd like to get out of town and thong somewhere new. Hoping to get to Vegas soon!

 I have managed one true all-over tan in my life.  I have found that you have to begin at the first of the season by tanning in the nude until you get a bit of a tan.  If you wear something to tan at the first opportunity, you won't be able to even out your tan.  A all-over tan is sexy to behold and a wonderful thing to have.  I'm going to try to do it this year, but finding the time, and the place to tan nude is next to impossible.  I got my all-over tan by tanning at a gay bath house where it was OK to tan nude.  No one bothered me.  However, I felt as though I had to slink to and from my car as I didn't want anyone to see me there.  An all-over tan is worth it to me though.

For me, tan lines are not desired, so I try to wear a variety of swimwear when at most beaches and wear nothing when at home.  Randy decides early in the season what he wants for the season -- tanlines or no tanlines.  He then wears suits that fit the same if thong lines are desired.  When thongs are not appropriate, he wears a variety of bikinis, short-shorts, and other clothing to keep from getting a secondary tan line other than his thong tanline.  He also tries to avoid nude sunning to the hours when tanning rays are lowest -- before 9 AM and after 5 PM.  He has been getting more and more turned on by a thong tan line since the women who do get to see him in the buff like the look more than no tanline.  These women include Nikki and me.

My boyfriend and I met at the beach the other evening.  He wore a thong, me a g-string and I was topfree too.  Way off in the grassy area I saw another man with a deep tan and a white thong laying out on his stomach reading.  (It was too late to be getting much sun on his buns.)  I hoped he would come down to the beach where I could get a better look.  (Let's face it, I like looking at cute men, especially when they are not wearing too much.)  After everyone else left, and the sun was about ready to go down, this other man stood up and came down towards the beach and to take a swim, passing about 20 feet from us as he walked by.  Boy was I surprised when he stood up.  He was totally nude!  His "equipment" just dangled down, as he walked towards us.  There was no way he could have covered up since he had at least 200 feet to walk back to his towel.  As he past us, he said something about being glad to see other thongers on the beach.  When he got out of the water my boyfriend ask him about his nudity, and he said he normally wore thongs (obvious from his tan line) and slipped them off when things quieted down shortly before we arrived.  He said he has even had the patrols drive by, see his thong tan lines, and assume he was legally covered.  His rear tan lines were perfect and so sharp from more than a few feet away, they looked like a white (or skin colored) thong against his darkly tanned skin.  Has anyone else used their thong tan line as a "swimsuit"?

 I like minimal or no tan lines.  I like to sunbathe in a g-string, so I keep moving the strings around to minimize the tan line and the pouch is minimal so when I lay on my back only the essentials are covered.

 For me it's a bit of both since our last beach-holiday at Plage L'espiguette in the south of France.
Since my wife doesn't like thong tanlines I tanned my backside without wearing a thong. So my tanlines are gone there. While tanning the front I wore one of my Muscleskins MP-thongs (narrow front) so I have rather small tan-lines there.
I must say the back without tan-lines doesn't look too bad either. So I'm happy and so is my wife! I think its a good compromise.

 I like tan lines but I also like the feeling of being totally bare, so I compromise with lines that are just a lighter shade of tan.

It was a bit of a rush this summer when I did the thong first and had a massage before starting to fill in the lines.  When the therapist started to work on my glutes she almost shouted, "I gotta get me one of those!"
