- Men’s Tan thru Polo style shirts can be worn as more fashionable choices in many different situations. These comfortable shorts do tan thru well, but not as well as tan through clothing that hugs the body such as certain work out shits for example. Then again, a whole day playing golf wearing one of these polos will certainly lead to some color!
- Tan thru henley shirts for men offer a stylish choice that looks great in more casual circumstances. These entries into the tan through clothing lineup can be worn a little tighter and therefore can lead to significant tanning. They are also certainly in fashion – and seem to have been for a long time – so they are a great choice.
- Of course T shirts are a popular form of tan through clothing, whether traditional of v-neck. The flexibility as far as when you can wear a t-shirt and how well they fit with so many outdoor activities are a reason why we see t shorts that allow you to tan thru growing in popularity. They are even great for that day at the beach where the weather is a little cooler.
- Tank tops are also quite popular as far as their ability to tan thru and prevent or at least minimize those unsightly tank top tan lines that you might otherwise get. And these types of shirt can be worn a little tighter as well, allowing the fabric to do its thing!
- For women you might find tan through clothing that is fashionable such as scoop neck shirts and even perhaps some types of blouse. You might also find all of the above in women’s fashions.

Do not overpay for your tan through clothing product – as exciting as they are they should not be that expensive.

Does Tan Through Clothing Work?
Tan through clothing has the obvious advantage over traditional clothing of allowing you to be tanning even when you are fully covered up. And unlike swimwear, this clothing allows this new way of tanning to stretch into other times when you are not near the beach or pool. But tan through clothing has other advantages as well, such as being made of a fabric that is lightweight and comfortable, perfect for sports and other activity. Interestingly, one benefit of tan through clothing for some is that it actually provides some degree of sunscreen protection as opposed to going shirtless. Or if you want to avoid having to put on lotion you might be able to put on that shirt or t shirt instead. Finally, these products may help manage moisture well if you are sweating or otherwise likely to get wet. And you do not have to sacrifice comfort or fashion through this choice, since those are advantages too!
Future Tan Through Clothes
There is a lot of room for tan through clothing in the market, and improvements in the technology may pave the way for a larger market share. For example, tan through clothing that is snug to the skin is the most effective type right now, but that limits the most impressive results to clothing that is more suited to sports and working out, and generally more popular with women than others. Once the technology behind ten through clothing allows clothes that are looser fitting to be effective in allowing the wearer to tan thru, we may see this material used for shirts and shorts that have a more relaxed and looser fit and are therefore suitable for a wider range of activity and situation.
Tan through bathing suits and clothing technology is growing fast – and its not beachwear that have tan through materials. Here are just some examples of other tan through products that could allow you to get a dark and even tan with no lines:
Tan through Glasses
There are now both prescription and non-prescription glasses that are made to tan through. Wear your sunglasses while working outside while not worrying about developing white circles around your eyes.
Tan through Cover ups
Sometimes you are near the beach or pool, but want to wear more than your bathing suit. Tan through cover ups allow you to be more covered up while still tanning through on a cooler day or when you want to dry off a bit.
Tan through Watch bands
How often have you seen people with tan lines where their watches were worn? Now you can wear your watch and still avoid these tan lines through the use of tan through bands.
Tan through Hats
Shaved heads on men are fashionable and look great on some. But they look funny if the face is tan and the head is white. Tan through hats prevent this kind of look.
The other improvements we may see to tan through clothing in the future include new types of clothes that can be worn off-season, such as winter sports wear, clothing that is more commonly work during cool months, etc. These improvements will allow people the opportunity to begin working on their tan earlier, or keep their tan longer after the summer. The key to these improvements will be to find material that is both warm and thin enough to tan thru. With the more general advent of thinner clothing for winter, tan thru material cannot be too far behind!
