I don’t know about you but swimsuit shopping is one of my least favorite wardrobe essentials to shop for. It seems like most swimsuits force you to choose between style and comfort, and it’s rare to find that holy grail swimsuit that is the perfect combination of both. I’ve definitely had my fair share of issues when hunting for a great swimsuit for going on holiday, especially finding a suit that looks flattering on me while also being comfortable enough to wear for extended periods of time.
I also want to come home from holiday with a tan, and a lot of swimsuits will leave you with strappy tan lines that are hard to get rid of or avoid. That’s why I was so excited when I was contacted by the company CoolTanⓇ to try out their TanThrough swimsuits that combine comfort, style, and getting a great tan all in one!
When I first heard the term “TanThrough” I was definitely intrigued- I had never heard of the ability to tan right through the fabric! But that’s what makes CoolTan so amazing and so unique; because you can tan right through the fabric, getting a tan can be as easy as walking along the beach or lounging by the pool!
The secret to what makes CoolTan so unique is their specially formulated Microsol V fabric which is knitted to create millions of tiny pores to let in approximately half the sun’s rays. This helps you get a tan in about the same time as you would with a medium level sun lotion, without having to worry about pesky tan lines or sticky and streaky tanning lotions. I thought this was absolutely amazing, and definitely a game-changer if you’re into tanning and don’t want to bother with annoying tanning sprays or lotions, which can often look very unnatural. If you like getting a natural, even, all-over tan these swimsuits will be your new best friend!
The porous fabric in CoolTan’s swimsuits also lets air and water pass easily through the suit, keeping you cool and comfortable on even the hottest summer days and wicking moisture to dry up to 3x faster than normal fabric. This is particularly incredible as it means you won’t have to wait hours and hours for your soaked suit to dry before you are able to throw it back in your bag. Because we all know how annoying and inconvenient it is to have to hang your suit up in the shower when on holiday, constantly being disappointed that it is still dripping wet hours after hanging it up. Plus, CoolTan’s swimsuits are all machine washable which might be my favorite feature of this suit as you can pop it into the washer and get out all the salt and sand to help preserve the life of your suit and leave it squeaky clean! Just make sure to hang it dry and you’re ready to go again in no time!
I tried a few different style options from CoolTan and was genuinely impressed at how well made they were and how comfortable they were. The durable stitching on the suits definitely seems like it will last a while and I was able to wear my suit all day without any pinching or discomfort. My favorite style was the structured one-piece as it felt supportive and modest while also being really flattering and comfortable. They also have monokinis, string, and halter bikinis to choose from, though, and a number of different sizes and styles so you can be sure to find your absolute perfect fit! CoolTan’s customer service is really spectacular and each suit comes with a Customer Satisfaction Guarantee so you can ensure you are 100% in love with what will be your new favorite swimsuit!
I can’t wait to bring these suits on my next holiday and in the meantime I will be dreaming of warmer weather and soaking up the sun in the perfect travel-friendly swimwear from CoolTan!
