Tan Through, Not See Through...

Posted by Marsha on

Ever wonder how a swimsuit can be tan through and not see through?  There has to be holes in the fabric to allow the sunlight to pass through it.  And, if the fabric has lots of tiny holes all in it, how can you not see through it?  Well, the answer is...you can, unless it is lying against your skin.  

Sun through tan through fabricThe micromesh that is used to construct Lifestyles Direct Tan Through Swimwear has lots of tiny holes in it that allow the sunlight to pass through to your skin, making it possible to tan through it.  One of the criteria that makes this possible without rendering the tan through swimsuit opaque is the snugness of the swimwear.  A proper fit is very desirable as a swimsuit that is too loose or too tight may render the fabric see through. So, ladies, don't try to cram your size 14 behind into a size 8 bikini!  Just because you're still skinny on your driver's license doesn't mean it's actually true...

Another important feature in creating tan through bathing suits that aren't see through is the print.  Bright, contrasting prints trick the eyes into looking at the swimsuit and not what's underneath.  If this thought makes you nervous, don't be.  The testing process for prints is quite extensive to insure the modesty of our swimwear, so much so that we guarantee our swimsuits to not be see through when worn, even when wet!
