Need a quick answer! Tanning (salon)

I'm going for the first time, and this sound like a stupid question I supposed to bring a bathing suit or wear one under my clothes or something?

I leave my underpants on and encase my breasts in a handtowel - there are some places I just don't want to risk burning!!

YES. They should advise you, depend on the power of the tanners, how long you should be in there. you can tan from 4 minutes to 12 minutes, I don't know, maybe more. Be careful!

But a professional place should advise you on this.

Yes. A properly trained staff at the tanning salon will tell you an appropriate schedule of tanning for your skin tone & current tan status. You will start out low and build up time as your body colours.

As for clothing, I tanned naked, but discovered that I burned my boobies to a crisp doing that. :-( (they hadn't been exposed to sunlight before) So, I put a small towel across them for part of the time, and without for the rest.

My daughter chose to tan with panties on - she just wasn't comfortable with the idea of being naked.

Hey guys - I'm back from tanning, thanks for the help!

I left my panties on and left this bathing suit top I have just over my breasts and I only stayed in for 12 min in a regular bed (I only wanted to get rid of some sunburn peel lines lmao)

I felt like a dying cupcake !! But, other than that, it was interesting.

Thanks for the replies!
