Summer time means tropical holidays, swimsuits and fun and in the sun! But spending all day in your swimming trunks, even while wearing SPF, can result in unsightly tanlines.

And let’s be honest, fake tans aren’t always the best.

If tanning is your goal this summer, it’s actually a lot harder than you think to do it naturally and evenly. Between sticky and streaky lotions, expensive sprays, and unavoidable tanlines, it can seem nearly impossible to achieve an all-over, natural tan.

And not a lot of countries allow you to go nude at the beach!

If you’re after a natural tan without the fake products, and without having to completely strip, we’ve discovered a fabulous travel hack: CoolTanⓇ.

Their amazing line of shirts and swimwear make it easier than ever before to get an amazing tan, through your swimsuit, meaning you can say goodbye to tan lines and enjoy that tropical beach time!

Summer Style Hack: Lose Your Tanlines Without Losing Your Swimsuit!

Tan THROUGH Your Swimsuit

Many of the things we take for granted in life today were once thought to be totally impossible; human flight, electricity, a reality TV star as President.

Among the previously thought impossible: the ability to tan right through your swimsuit!

The secret to what makes CoolTan so amazing is their specially formulated Microsol V fabric which is knitted to create millions of tiny pores which allow the sun to come through and for you to get a tan!

This means you’ll tan in about the same time as you would with a medium-level SPF sunscreen, but without even having to think about it. This fabric is lightweight, high-quality, and fully machine-washable!

The Magic Fabric


CoolTan’s porous fabric is revolutionary when it comes to a natural, even tan, though it’s equally amazing for letting air and water pass freely through the suit to keep you cool and comfortable, even on the hottest of days.

The fabric wicks moisture from the body three times faster than other fabrics, meaning you stay dry and cool regardless of the temperature; a total game changer because it means you won’t have to wait hours and hours for your swimsuit to dry before packing it into your suitcase.

Late checkout? You can get in that last minute run to the beach, or use the hotel pool without having to worry about traveling with wet gear. Because nothing smells worse than wet swimwear that’s been zipped up in a confined bag for a 20 hour flight!

Cooltan’s suits are also so thin that they barely take up any room in your luggage, and the fabric is wrinkle-resistant, making them the perfect swimwear for travel!

Cooltan Styles

Cooltan offers both men’s and women’s swim styles. For men there are racers, hipsters, jammers, mid-thigh swim Trunks, and Board Shorts in sizes S-XXL.

For women, there are string bikinis, halter bikinis, one-piece tanks, and monokinis in sizes 5/6 – 13/14. All men’s and women’s styles are offered in a variety of patterns, so there’s something for everyone.

In addition to swimwear, CoolTan also has a line of Men’s tan through shirts that makes it even easier to get an amazing tan while golfing, playing tennis, or spending time in the wilds hiking.

These tan through shirts are made from the same Microsol fabric technology as Cooltan swimwear, so you can get an effortless tan right through the fabric, without having to worry about getting a farmer’s tan!

The shirts work at about the equivalent of an SPF 6-10 so you can have a base layer of sun protection without even having to think about it. To get the most even results, Cooltan suggests wearing a higher SPF on the parts of your skin that are not covered by the shirt.

These shirts are amazingly comfortable and lightweight, and it’s easy to love how many styles and colors they have. Shirt styles include Polos, Henleys, T-Shirts, V-Necks, and Tank Tops, and are offered in a variety of colors and sizes S-XXL.

Something for Everyone
