  1. when I was 18 I was invited to my boyfriend’s dad’s 50th – it was a big lavish affair and the first time I was going to meet all his family. I had an exam that morning so didn’t have time to get my tan done (or even properly shop for one) under all the stresses of studying. Instead, I ran into my local chemist after the exam and picked up a bottle of instant I hadn’t used before but my friend had recommended. When I got to the party I felt the heat of the room as soon as I walked in and feared i’d sweat the tan off. I managed to get through the dinner, but then all of his family decided to come over and meet the ‘new girlfriend’ – as they huddled around me I stood up to reveal my chair (which had been covered in beautiful white cloth for the event) was an orange mess! two orange imprints of my legs as well as an orange imprint from my back! I had sweat half my tan on to the chair! Luckily the incident didn’t affect the relationship as we are still together, but to this day I still uphold the nickname ‘Tangerine’.

  2. Worst fake tan story was when I was going to my first disco! I had bought a lovely dress and was all set to go . I had bought a bottle of fake tan ( cheapest one) in the shop which was one that you put on the night before! I I used it on my face and my body ad when I woke up the next morning I literally looked like an oompa loompa I had picked the darkest shade of tan never even looked at what shade it was! I was so embarrassed I stood out a mile away with my white dress on. I really did make an impression that night!

  3. the first tan i used was one that developed over night! I applied it with my hands and went to bed! not thinking of washing my hands properly after applying it……..the next morning my hands looked like id rubbed iodine all over them!!!

  4. Not something that happened to me personally, but there was a group of friends that would come to my boyfriend’s apartment with a gang of us before we’d head out. One girl was a “fan” (putting it midly) of fake tan and would leave a very distinct orange hue all over the toilet seat, and then left to be cleaned by all of us! Very dedicated to be tanning up that far!!

  5. I love tantastic. Until I discovered it I was an umpalumpa… I have had so many tanning disasters it’s not funny… The worst was at my sisters wedding and she had us in cream dresses and my tan ran all over the neck and arm area of the dress. My parents had to get the pictures photo shopped so they could put them on the mantle piece!!
