The Best Travel-Friendly Swimwear and Shirts from CoolTan

January 15, 2019

A great swimsuit is a travel essential and something you definitely don’t want to forget to pack! You just never know when you might need a swimsuit, whether you’re heading off to a snowy getaway and plan on being in the hot tub as much as possible or you’re jetting off to a tropical locale and plan on being in the ocean as much as possible. But finding a great swimsuit can be trickier than you might think. I’ve searched high and low for the perfect travel-friendly swimsuit that combines comfort and style and it is usually impossible! It seems like so much of the time you’re forced to choose between really comfortable suits that aren’t very flattering or super glam swimsuits that are anything but comfortable. That’s why I was so excited when I found the company CoolTanⓇ and their TanThrough swimwear which I think are the best travel-friendly swimwear out there, that also happen to get you a great tan easier than ever before!


You’re probably thinking- how can a swimsuit get you a great tan? I know, it seems like it should be impossible. But CoolTan is doing what was previously thought impossible: the ability to tan right through your swimsuit. This means you won’t have to deal with sticky and streaky tanning lotions or coming away with pesky tan lines. Tanning is easier than ever as you can be getting an even, all-over tan while laying by the pool, walking along the beach, or even just lazing out in your garden.

The secret to what makes CoolTan so amazing is their specially formulated Microsol V fabric which is knitted to create millions of tiny pores that lets in approximately half the sun’s rays. This will get you a tan in about the same time as you would with a medium-level SPF sunscreen. But unlike with most swimsuits you won’t have to worry about pesky tan lines and can achieve a natural, all-over glow without resorting to tanning sprays or tanning beds.

The porous Microsol fabric in CoolTan’s swimwear is also great at letting air and water pass freely through the suit so you can keep cool and comfortable, even on the hottest of summer days, and wick moisture to dry up to 3x faster than normal fabric. This is perfect for traveling because it means you won’t have to worry about waiting hours and hours for your swimsuit to dry before being able to pack it back in your suitcase. Because there’s nothing more annoying than a soaking wet swimsuit that just refuses to dry and having to risk getting all your clothes wet and moldy!


CoolTan’s TanThrough swimwear is also machine washable which is incredible because it means you can keep your swimsuit nice and clean and get out all that salt and sand you might bring home with you from vacation. You won’t have to deal with sand being traipsed throughout the house.

In addition to TanThrough swimwear, CoolTan also has a line of TanThrough shirts that are perfect for traveling and making tanning even easier. The TanThrough shirts are also made using the same Microsol fabric so you can get a tan while golfing, playing tennis, or even just running errands. The Microsol fabric also has an SPF of 6-10 so you can rest assured that you have a base layer of sun protection without even having to think about it. These shirts are lightweight and comfortable and great at letting air and water pass through to similarly keep you cool and wick moisture. With the choice between Polos, Henleys, V-Necks, and T-Shirts you’re sure to find a number of styles and patterns that you will love and will be the perfect choice to bring traveling.

I was really impressed with the quality of CoolTan’s swimwear and could tell that the durable stitching on each suit meant these swimsuits will last a long time. I couldn’t believe just how comfortable these swimsuits were and also how flattering they made me look at the same time. With a number of styles for both men and women including everything from briefs and hipsters to board shorts and trunks for men and everything from one-pieces and monokinis to halter and string bikinis, you’re guaranteed to find your new favorite swimsuit.
