Thanks for the great posts everyone. Glad I'm not alone in the glowing white legs . Guess it's a common problem amongst us barn gals, huh? I better stay away from the spray on tanners, as I will be going in the water.
Now I'm off to check out the suits you all suggested.

Erin_and_jasper, thanks for the links. I really want to stay away from load prints though. I want to look as good as I can, but not stand out...know what I mean?
Oh so far I have seen several I like at Lands End and Lane Bryant sites. I'm going to make every effort to narrow the ones I like to just a few...If you guys can, come back in a couple of days and help me decide on one...please I will try and get a pic of me to help...but that all depends if I can get the nerve up

Very nice suggestions...thank you. I really like the Miraclesuit solid escape. I like how it draws the eye towards the bust and of course black is slimming. If I do go with that one, I will need to buy the boy shorts or skirt though...upper thigh problem. I have looked at it several times now and like how my eyes are automatically drawn up towards the boobs and face...ya just sort of forget about the rest...exactly what my figure needs

Probably not what you are looking for but um...ever since I gained a few pounds I've sort of worn...maternity bathing suits. I just think they are cuter than the "chubby ladies" ones and have a lot more chest support/coverage (I'm modest). The one I have now actually looks like a very loose tank top and the bottoms come up so I am pretty well covered and still looks good even though I'm loosing weight. I also wear the top with jeans when bathing the horse :)

Sunless tanners are GREAT but watch any products that promote tanning so you don't burn yourself right off. I am very sun sensitive so I actually have a UV monitor...they are really cheap!! Mine was 20 dollars and allows you to input skin type, what SPF you used and then counts down time to burn. It checks the uv every 10 min and re-adjusts the timer if necessary.

I have also seen some generic UV bracelets that turn a color when you are out too long but are only good with certain SPF's and don't put skin type into play. Either way, I really recommend them....I just looked up UV Monitor on Amazon and found TON of different types.
