The answer is yes, if you want lighter legs and a seam line on your inner thigh and ankle! Leggings, jeans and any tight fitting clothes after a spray tan is completely taboo! This is because tight clothes are hard to get on which results in your tan getting rubbed of before you even get them off!
Once you finally get your legs into them, you’ll be wearing them either all day or till you get home which means that every moment you move the tan is slowly rubbing off while making your legs lighter than the rest of your body the next day. The seam line going up the inner thigh on leggings and jeans will be rubbing against your spray tan and will cause a darker line there.
So how did I prove this theory?
It’s common knowledge that tight clothing shouldn’t be worn after tanning, but I wanted to find out for myself. I put on a dark spray tan and after application I put on a pair of slightly lose cut off jeans. After the 9 hour development time I washed off the colour guide and saw that half my leg was tanned and the other half was lighter where the jeans had been off. See for yourself in the picture below!
So what do I wear after a spray tanning session?
On the bottom:
Loose joggy bottoms, harrem pants, slouch pants, loose shorts or maxi skirts.
On the top:
no strappy tank tops! Where a loose fitting t-shirt that’s easy to get into after your spray tanning session. If in doubt, try it on before you arrive to see how easy it is.
