Does tan through swimwear work?

Yes! Our tan through swimwear is made from a revolutionary, patented fabric that is safe to wear in the sun and is tan through. The fabric has been scientifically developed and created to selectively filter ultra violet light for safer human sun tanning with no chemical additives. The most innovative swimwear collection available!

Is there a fabric you can tan through?

Yes! Our fabric is knitted with a controlled size and amount of minute holes in the fabric. These micro holes allow a prejudged amount of the required UV-A rays through to the surface of the skin. A pre-selected amount of ultraviolet wavelengths penetrate through, enough to let your skin tan.

Built into the fabric is the same transmitting filtering effect as a responsible protection factor. This only allows a small percentage of the rays of UV-B through. However unlike creams, oils, and lotions which rub or wash off, the fabric's protection is absolute and constant, so there is no need to wear sun cream under the fabric.

What tanning results can I expect?

Of course all skin types are different and will tan differently, however;

1.  You must not experience any discomfort through skin burning when used correctly

2.  You must wear the swimwear for a sensible period of time to see a darkening of the skin’s colour. You must spend at least a reasonable number of hours in one day exposed to bright sunlight early in your holiday period. 

Each day after, providing the exposure time is given, the skin will darken into brown golden suntan.  

We, however, recommend not to expose yourselves to the sun between 11.00 a.m. and 13.00 p.m. During that time over 50% daily UV sunrays are emitted.

As the fabric acts like a UV barrier there is no need to wear sun cream or lotion under the fabric as this will hinder the product from working.

PLEASE NOTE: Some of the hems and seams are doubled over such as the crotch and panelling, therefore the suns rays cannot penetrate through these areas. The fabric needs to be flush against the skin for best results.

Tan thru fabric


The fabric uses a special polyester/polyamide yarn to specifically control UV wavelengths. The Ultra Violet-B (UV-B = dangerous burning rays) rays are almost totally absorbed by the special polyester/polyamide yarn used. The Ultra Violet-A (UV-A = the less harmful tanning rays) rays are selectively transmitted through the yarn to the skin, resulting in a safer sun tan.
