How Do I Tan Thru My Swimsuit?

So, you can tan thru your swimsuit here at Lifestyles Direct.  Does that seem odd to you?  Ever wonder how that's possible?  Today the secret is revealed!

Sun throughThe unique fabric used to make tan through swimwear is a simple, yet ingenious, concept.  The fabric allows more than the usual amount of sunlight through the swimsuit to reach your skin underneath it.  The fabric used to make Lifestyles Direct Tan Through Swimwear is a micro-mesh that has tiny pores that allow the sun's rays to pass through so you can sun tan right through your bikini.  When the fabric is stretched, the pores are opened, allowing more sunlight to pass through.  For this reason, tan through bathing suits should fit snugly for optimum tanning.

The above process is a passive one and is accomplished just by wearing the tan through swimsuit in the sun.  For many wearers, this is enough for them.  Many are seeking the benefits of the sun's rays underneath their clothing.  Psoriasis sufferers make up one group that simply want more sun on their skin for the photo-therapeutic effects on their psoriatic plaques.  However, to achieve an all-over, seamless tan, you need to be a little more aggressive and conscientious.  Naturally, the thicker areas of the swimsuit, like the seams and straps, will provide a higher SPF than the areas of the swimsuit that is comprised of only a single layer of fabric.  For this reason, the straps and seams need to be moved periodically to allow the sunlight to pass over all areas of your skin underneath your tan through swimwear.  This allows the tanning process to be more even, resulting in a better tan overall.

The angle and strength of the sun is a major factor in the speed at which your skin tans underneath your swimwear.  For example, if you lie in the sun at noon in July, you will get a faster and more intense tanning experience than if you are in the sun in January at 4 pm.  You will need to keep this in mind when choosing your tanning area.  Turn your chair or blanket accordingly to get the most direct sunlight if you want your tanning process to be quicker.  If a more gradual process is desired, adjust accordingly.

Occasionally, we have customers whose expectations are unrealistic.  Our swimwear will not provide a perfect tan the first time it is worn.  The process takes time and a little effort.  It is not a magical process.  Lifestyles Direct provides swimwear that works, but not in an unrealistic way.  To match the SPF of the swimsuit itself, you will need to use a sunscreen.  The swimwear provides anywhere from 5 to 10 SPF, so all uncovered skin will need a lotion to match.  This may need adjustment based on the intensity of the sun and/or your skin's ability to tan.

We are always happy to help our customers with any questions or concerns about our swimwear.  We can help you with any problems you may be having with your tanning process.  Give us a call 417-293-5081 or write us a note and we will do our best to help.


Let's Be Thankful!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of our customers from all of us here at Lifestyles Direct Tan Through Swimwear!  We know that all of us have lots of things for which to be thankful and this is the time that we have set aside to think about them.  

One of the things that I am thankful for is my job here.  I like to see people made happy by their purchases from this company.  I love to see our customers enjoy themselves as a result of our tan through swimsuits.  If you buy a tan through bikini from us and you are happy as a result, I love it!

I am also thankful for my family.  They support me and love me.  Who could ask for anything more?  

Look at what you have today and be thankful!  It always makes me feel better when I stop complaining about insignificant things and look at what I've been given.  The bad always falls away, at least for a while when I look at all the good.

What are you thankful for?

Don't Forget Your Coverup!

Many sun-seekers are preparing for their yearly holiday migration to warmer climes.  The swimwear is bought (hopefully tan through), the tickets are purchased, the itinerary is set, but have you chosen your swimsuit coverup?  We recommend a tan through sarong or pareo to compliment your favorite swimsuit.

Tan through sarong in green Heat print -- EW0448A swimwear cover-up gives you a little more coverage for changes in situations.  For instance, if you need to run back to your room or condo for something, you won't feel quite so unclothed if you have a nice pareo for the occasion.  I have been in situations like this and felt a little out of place standing around in my bathing suit while everyone else was fully clothed.

Large cover ups like our tan through pareos give you the option of using it as a sun screen when you've had just a bit too much sun.  Furthermore, you can place it over your face while tanning and still be able to see through it.  It just provides a little more freedom to cover your face in a public place without fear of someone snatching some of your stuff.

Lastly, Lifestyles Direct tan through beachwear is just beautiful!  It will compliment any swimsuit or bikini.  The fabric is not thick and hot so you can wear it in sun without roasting.  It can be worn in the water as well and come out just as beautiful as when it was dry.  The pores help it to dry very quickly so there is no worry!

Choose a fabulous tan through swimsuit coverup today to add to your beachwear collection!  You will not regret it!

Storing Your Tan Through Swimwear For Winter...

Unfortunately, it's the time of year to think about storing our summer clothing.  It makes me sad, too, but it has to be done!  Today, let's talk about storing your tan through swimwear properly so they will be beautiful next spring when sun tanning is possible again.

The first step to properly storing your one-piece swimsuit or tan through bikini is to thoroughly clean it.  As much chlorine, oils, and salt need to be removed before storing your swimwear.  These chemicals and compounds can damage the fabric and elastic if allowed to remain on the swimsuit for long periods of time.  To thoroughly clean your Lifestyles Direct Tan Through swimsuit, you need to hand rinse it well in cool, clean water.  If there is a lot of oil, lotion, or chlorine present on your swimming suit, you may need to use a very mild detergent, like Woolite.  

The next step is to let your tan thru swimwear dry thoroughly.  We recommend that you hang them to dry indoors or in the shade, just so it is a ventilated area.  Do not hang them in the sun.  It is important that your swimwear is thoroughly dried before storage to prevent mildew damage.

Next, place them in a drawer or plastic container for storage, being careful not pack them too tightly.

Now, here comes the hardest step of all.  Wait for spring to arrive again...

Tan Through Tankini Bikini Tops...

Sadly, the swim season is almost over.  However, the end of summer brings with it new information for us here at Lifestyles Direct Tan Through Swimwear.  We can see what styles and/or prints that our customers have enjoyed the most this year.  Our separates pages seem to generate a lot of interest and one style sells the best out of that lot -- the tankini.

Multicolor Safari print on tan through tankini top from Lifestyles Direct.The tankini bikini top is very flattering.  If you have a fuller bust, it accentuates your curves very well.  The adjustable straps make it easy to fit short or long torsos.  The halter style straps make the shoulders look wide and beautiful, which in turn makes the waist look narrower.

This popular tan through bikini top is also very comfortable.  Unlike a one-piece swimsuit, you do not experience the tight fit in the torso since the top has no crotch to limit the length of the swimsuit piece.  It definitely makes bathroom breaks easier and more convenient.  No more stripping in the restroom or in the bushes and fearing being seen nude by some passerby.

The cups of the tankini bikini top from Lifestyles Direct are large.  The are without an underwire, which makes it fit to your body better instead of your body being forced into the shape of an underwire.  The stretchy cups hug your bust so you have the comfort and room that you need.

Do you have input on this great style in our tan through swimsuit line?  Please let us know what you think.  We always encourage and welcome messages from our customers and anyone who is interested in our swimwear.  You can also call our customer service line at 417-293-5081 and one of our representatives will be happy to answer all your questions.

Movie Review...

Bikinis, one piece swimwear, and men's racers are frequent topics of discussion here.  Today, however, I want to write about something else.  I saw an amazing movie yesterday and want to write about that instead of swimsuits.

Yesterday, my husband and I watched a Russian film called "I Am Dragon."  It was a beautifully made fairy tale movie about a duchess that gets swept away by a dragon and imprisoned in the dragon's lair.  

The story has emotional twists and turns and incredible dialogue.  We both thought we knew how the movie would end, but we were both wrong, at least in part.

The movie was very well made and had beautiful scenery, being filmed in Russia and Bulgaria.  The cinematography was very good as well.  It made me want to live there on that incredible island!

I hope that you will seek to watch this incredible film.  It is definitely worth the effort!

Holiday Trips and Tan Through Swimwear...

It's never too early to prepare for your holiday season getaway! You may be looking to head to the tropics during the Christmas season.  Wouldn't you want to have new swimsuits to wear on your excursions?  We can help you with excellent tan through swimwear choices!

Tan through crisscross structured cup tank swimsuit from Lifestyles Direct.If you like a modest one piece swimsuit that covers what you want covered and gives you the look and feel that you like, we have several body styles from which to choose.  If you like simple at its finest, you may go for a traditional tank.  No muss, no fuss, right?  If you like simple, but need a little support, you may choose a structured top tank with lots of bust room and loads of comfort.  Active swimmer?  We have you covered there as well with a couple choices:  an unstructured crisscross strap tank and a structured cup crisscross strap tank swimsuit.  Each gives you straps that stay put with adjustment to get that snug, body glove fit that swimmers desire and need.  If you like a full support cup, we offer two styles with underwire support cups, one with C-D size cups and one with A-C size underwire cups with adjustable straps.

Do you look for more freedom in your swimwear?  Go with a tan through bikini.  We boast several styles ranging from the ever-popular string bikini to a full structure underwire top and full coverage bottom.  If you need to buy your bikini with a little flexibility in sizing and/or style, go the separates route.  We have four bikini top styles and four bikini bottom styles.  Mix and match the styles and sizes, whatever you need!

Men, I haven't forgotten about you!  We have three men's swimwear styles:  a nine inch bike short, a 3" racer, and a 1-inch racer.  All are popular with swimmers, divers, and relaxers.  The quick-drying fabric makes them a plus for divers since they are used to being in and out of the water all day and hate a perpetually wet swimsuit.  Our swimwear is only wet when you want it to be!

If you have questions concerning your new tan through swimwear for your holiday getaway, just let us know and our customer service folks will be happy to help in any way possible.  We always love to hear comments and suggestions about new swimwear styles and possible improvements on our existing styles.  You can contact us via our website or via telephone at 417-293-5081.
