Dresses To Wear When Your Tan Lines Are Out Of Control

We’ve all been there: you fall asleep on the beach chair and wake up 3 hours later with those ridiculous halter tan lines. Then you realize you don’t own any halter dresses for the next weekend’s wedding.

Don’t get caught in one more photo with those glaring white lines again – check out our dress guide to match (almost) all suit types.


This Roxy Surfari 70’s Halter Bikini is super cute – but if you forgot sunscreen (shame on you!) you’ll need a great halter dress in your repertoire. This B. Darlin Scroll-Print Halter Dress ($59) is so pretty and perfect for weddings, or any excuse for dressing up.


This ASOS Stripe Twist Padded Bandeau Bikini ($32.13) is bright and fun – but if you get that shelf tan line you’ll need a great strapless dress. We fell for this pretty ASOS Bow Bandeau Zip Back Dress ($27.05, down from $67.64) – the bandeau neckline is almost identical to the bikini top, and we love the color.

Halter Bandeau:

This Warehouse Halter Bandeau Bikini Top ($28.75) is a bold bikini type – but if you can pull it off, it’s eye-catching and fun. If you’re rocking those teeny center tan lines, go for this Ruched-Front Halter Dress ($88). We love the frilly front and beachy style.


If you wisely went for a super flattering SPANX swimsuit like this All The Wave One Shoulder One-Piece Swimsuit ($178) – your body probably looked great – but the one-shoulder tan lines? Not so much. Lucky for you asymmetrical dresses like this Buffalo “Reiss” One-Shoulder Dress ($69) are so hot right now.

Memorial Day is just a few days away… need new swimwear? Check out more of our swimwear posts, as well as our buying guide to SPANX swimwear and cheap swimwear.
