Will a spray tan come off in the pool?

I am having my first spray tan tomorrow, not for any event, just because I fancied it.

I swim twice a week, and it's just occured to me, is it worth it, or will it come off the first time I swim?

How long does a spray tan usually last anyway?

it'll last 3-4 days or up to a week if you're lucky, swimming will be fine.....Get the tan done the day before your event...and swim afterwards when it doesn't matter...

I got a spray before I went on holiday and it looked great but then I went in the pool. Over the next few days it became streaky and faded. I came back paler than I went. Should have listened to the tanner who said chlorine can strip the tan off. Might have been this particular brand only though but not sure.

In my experience swimming will completely strip your tan.
