That is the question. I booked a fake bake for a wedding but then Bought this dress which possibly will look ok with my paleness. Also dh thinks it is a bit common but am prepared to dismiss his opinion

I wouldn't bother personally I think most people look best their natural colour! The dress is gorgeous btw.

As a serial fake baker grin I wouldn't bother, it's looks like that dress would suit a natural skin tone. Or perhaps just a holiday skin lotion type glow

Beautiful dress. Doesn't need a tan for but then most clothes don't. Fake tans look awful but the users never realise it. Just my opinion. Just get a little sun each day instead. You only need 10 mins (not in the middle of the day) and you will build up a little colour and get your vit d top ups and all the health benefits that go with a little sun.

I'll vouch for that - DH and I hardly tan at all. DH just gets very freckly!

Don't bother with the fake tan. If it's not something you've done before, it might not even suit you, for all you know.

What you cant tan? I tend to get a little brown because I get my 20mins a day of sunshine for the health benefits. Don't do sunbathing holidays though.

my top half tans but my legs stay blue white, so to even things out a bit I use that gradual tanner/moisturizer on my legs (Jergens or Nivea are good)

It just takes a couple of days and I look a lot better, without that orangeness

Anyway your dress is gorgeous, really lovely. I think it would suit a pale skin better.

I am extremely pale. I can change colour but only at the expense of burning and damaging my skin and then I peel and back to square one

Cereal0ffender Wed 25-Jun-14 20:07:20

I am so pleased with the dress! Glad you all like it

Yay. So stay the colour you are.
