I found a tanning salon seriously 2 minutes away from me that is offering 25 tans for $25, so I figured I'll go ahead and jump on it. 2 main reasons I want to do it are 1) Ive got a base tan now, why not enhance it a bit? and 2) Ive heard that the UV rays help in colder months with depression not to mention acne! Here are my main questions:

1) since Im a big busted person, would purchasing a bikini JUST FOR tanning help? not too keen on tan lines, but I figured it would help right?

2) Any indoor tanning lotions you'd recommend that would be cheaper somewhere else vs the salon?

3) not really sure if there is a 3rd, but any tips and advice would be helpful!!

I dont know about getting a bikini for tanning! I hate tan lines i never wear anything in there. Second, I get ALL my tanning lotions from ebay. I get the little samples from the tanning place until i find one i like, im not really picky so normally whatever i try out i like then get it on ebay for at least 1/2 price!

I just asked my friend with HUGE boobies what she does and she said she tans on her stomach so gravity isnt against her! Which is actually a good idea because i lay on my stomach sometimes too to switch it up!

I wear my bathing suit when I tan!! I know they are supposed to be sanitized after every use, but are you SURE about that?? I'm a germaphobeAs far as lotions, I DON'T recommend the "tingly" ones. I thought I was on fire and was going to die after using one one day.
