Talk to me about tan lines....??

I'm starting to be optimistic and think about some sun.

I'm not a sunbather at all, can think of nothing I want to do less than spend a day roasting myself, but I do love being outdoors and provided I take care not to burn to begin with, I can go a nice golden colour.

I never set out with this aim, but it's quite nice when it happens (I know, I should avoid it all together, but the fact is I won't)

However, if I get a bit of a tan, walking, gardening, playing cricket on the beach etc, I will inevitably end up with strap marks or sleeve marks. Others with much deeper tans seem to avoid it. How?

They fake it! Spray tan, or out of a bottle.
When I'm gardening I wear a strapless top if I can (and apply sunscreen) to avoid strap marks.
