I don't like tan lines but I would still buy a bathing suit even if it would result in lines. But then, I don't actively try to get tanned since it's bad for your skin.

If they're not "regular" tan lines, I probably wouldn't like it too much.

I don't tan and like it's been mentioned I also have better things to do than worry about or point out other people's tan lines. I like retro looking suits which aren't exactly ideal tanning friendly suits, which is why they're perfect for me.

my god! my mom has a friend that is completely obsessed with tan lines. every 5 minutes she asks us to fix her bikini and she only uses the same swimsuit because of different tan lines caused by other bikinis. that's REALLY annoying. I mean, certainly you don't want weird lines through all your body, but some different ones don't hurt. and I don't like to be burned by the sun, I like to get a healthy tan, so tan lines are not exactly a problem for me!

356UIK I agree, I never understood it either. I remember I was once invited under very short notice to a party when I was younger, and I just pulled on my favorite dress. Well one of my friends was observant enough to point out my tan lines. The whole thing I just thought was ridiculous, I don't see what the problem is. It would only really bother me if the lines were weird. Also I don't deliberately tan but you can still get sunburned no matter how much SPF.

I try not to get any kind of tan line. As I've gotten older I've decided being tan for a couple of months per year is not worth the damage it does. I am still a lake rat, but I don't purposefully lay out anymore.

i do worry about funky tan lines, but i wear such a high SPF that i think it's probably moot.

I don't tan. So I only need swimsuits for swimming, and if a suit is comfortable to swim in, then I'm getting it, no matter the funkiness.

NOPE. I could give a shit and never understood the fascination with this fixation on not getting tan lines. Are we seriously judging people based on tan lines? Who cares. I'm also with risque, I wear SPF.

I hate, HATE tan lines. I won't lay out on the beach for exactly that reason. I do like to get darker though. I use dove moisturizers with the subtle self tanners (which is amazing). I also sometimes go to the tanning salon but not excessively.

I don't tan & hopefully I put on enough sunscreen during the day that I don't get any "burn lines"--those are not sexy at all.
