Brits divided over whether catching a tan in a public place without wearing a bikini or swimming trunks is socially acceptable. As Britain basked in tropical conditions this week with temperatures soaring towards 35C 95F , people eager to make the most of the scorching heat took to parks and beaches across the country to sunbathe. But some sun worshippers went to extreme lengths to get a tan — and the issue has prompted fierce public debate. Without having a bikini or swimming trunks to hand, many people left their workplaces early to enjoy the weather and were pictured trying to catch rays in just their underwear — dividing opinion in the process. Dave Mason, 56, from Cheadle Hulme, Stockport, said it was unacceptable to strip off to underwear in a public place to get a tan. Swimwear is marginally better but even that would be slightly strange in a park.

A tan line is a visually clear division on the human skin between an area of pronounced comparative paleness relative to other areas that have been suntanned by exposure to ultraviolet UV radiation. The source of the radiation may be the sun , or artificial UV sources such as tanning lamps. Tan lines are usually an inadvertent result of a work environment or of recreational activities, but are sometimes intentional. Many people regard visible tan lines as unsightly and seek to avoid tan lines that will be visible when regular clothes are worn. A "farmer's tan" also called "golfer's tan" or "tennis tan" refers to the typical tan lines developed by regular outdoor activity when wearing a short sleeve shirt.
