    OKAY, SILLY QUESTION:
    DO YALL HAVE THE "TENNIS TAN" TOO? YOU KNOW, WHITE FEET, SLEEVE LINES, SHORTS LINES, AND MAYBE THE EVER-SO-FLATTERING VISOR LINE ACROSS THE FOREHEAD?

    I have the short lines. I live by the beach in Southern California. I often wear tank tops or no shirt at all playing tennis during the day, so no sleeve lines at all. I wear flip flops so no white feet.

    Hahhaha I don't play in flip flops. I wear flip flops when I'm not playing tennis or doing any sports. I wear it when I'm just kicking it around the beach.

    Haha.. okay..duh!
    I wish I could "kick it by the beach." I'm here in south Georgia, and I only get to the beach a few times a year. Laying out by my pool is just not the same. And man its been raining over here too and I can't play tennis.

    Man, I have a tennis gear imprinted on my body. Two stripes of white on my wrists, two on my ankles and tan around my shirt. I look ridiculous, but it is summer and I am from Miami - can't really complain.

    I live by the beach so no tennis tan just a pretty good tan everywhere. But I have seen a bunch of people with tennis tan.

    I have it bad lol. Not so much the hat tan (yet) but everything else. My feet will kill a man with whiteness. I simply always wear my Classics. I play like 20+ hours a week outdoors, no humidity, very little cover overhead. Terrible stuff. I've never really been concerned with it. All I do is play tennis now so, no worries.

    That is, until I start working Chip'n'dales. :lol:

    Well, I got the white feet. Really white feet. I wear low-cut socks so it's only my feet. The Sleeve/Shorts lines arn't really bad at all for some reason. I don't wear a hat, so no hat tan line either.

    Just go to a tanning salon if you want to get rid of your tennis tan.

    could you put some of that tanning lotion on your feet if you got light colored feet?

  14. I get the hat tan sometimes, but I even out everything but my short tan by playing shirtless every now and then. (Baseline Basher is male.)

    The only one I do not have is the hat and socks, but not so noticeable as I usually play first hour in the mornings (6-7am)and here in Lima (Peru) the sun shines just two or at most tree months a year.

    In Texas, WHO DOESN'T? In fact, I have 3 shades on my ankle areas from wearing different length socks.

    u nailed it

    I haven't been to the pool for YEARS because my feet are as white as a sheet of paper and my legs are super tan. I try not to wear a shirt when I play tennis in the summer so that helps. I have a 3 year odl daughter and I am going to have to take her to the pool next year I am sure. So I will need to start wearing short socks or something. It looks horrible.

    On a more serious note, hasn't anyone heard of sunscreen? And don't get me started on skin cancer, know the ABCD's of skin cancer - moles, going from safe to malignant, it's easy to Google on that - a few minutes learning about that may save a life.

    I don't really have a bad shirt tan, because I usually play in sleeveless shirts. Sock lines aren't bad either because I wear my socks low. My worst tan is the skirt/short line. I went to the beach lately to try to get rid of it, but it's still there. It looks like I'm wearing stockings. :(
