Is it possible to tan through pantyhose?

July 26, 2013 under What to Avoid

pantyhose and shorts on the beachI’ve seen some photos of people tanning through lace fishnet pantyhose in a pattern that looked like someone printed the fabric onto the leg.  Let’s just say, it looked very strange.

But is it possible to tan through pantyhose that is sheer and doesn’t have any holes in it?

I was wearing my pantyhose in Hawaii, but I didn’t manage to tan.  I don’t know if it’s because I barely tan in general or because of the hosiery.  Another reason maybe because I tried to stay out of the sun between 11 a.m. – 4 p.m., as recommended by dermatologists.

But if you’d go and lie on the beach in blazing sun, would you catch a sun tan through pantyhose?

I’d love to hear your opinions if it’s possible to tan through pantyhose!
