Hi, I've a wedding on saturday, and I bought a dress only yesterday. It's nice, a really pale grey, and hides my growing belly (baby, not chocs) but it's short, ie just above the knee, with a halter neck. My shoulders and arms are nice and brown thanks to this weeks lovely weather, but my legs are ultra neon white. It's looks BEYOND stupid. So - for a wedding in Spain, would you A. Try tan creams for the first time, or B. Buy tights. I'll be wearing high open toed sandels. (Which I also havent bought yet..)
Argh, I just dont know how to apply tan cream, is it worth it, and will my legs go orange??? Or will brown tanned tights just look muppetty?

I would stay away from American Tan tights grin

And bare legs are much sexier anyway. I use St Tropez everyday, and also the mouse, and these give great results. You will have to apply for 3 consequitive nights to achieve the perfect tan, bear this in mind.

If you have a look at the this morning website they have a feature on fake tan, and give advice about applying/best options. It might be worth a look.
