Boob Tape – A Secret Ingredient for Ultimate Cleavage

In the world full of different bra models and styles, we still can’t find the one that would match some challenging outfits.

Many experts recommend strapless, plunge, and sticky bras as the perfect choices for backless and open dresses, but are they accommodating for women with the bigger bust?

To be honest, no. Bigger chest requires a significant amount of support, and such bras hardly can help. Luckily, there is something even more efficient than a bra – a boob tape.

In the article below, you are going to see some fantastic tricks a boob tape can do – and most importantly, they work!

What is Boob Tape?

Instead of going braless or putting on an adhesive bra that doesn’t work, the best would be to try a boob tape.

Even though it sounds like the most uncomfortable thing you’ll ever put on your body, it’s actually pretty convenient. And another thing that might surprise you is the fact that the idea of the tape becomes popular because of the celebrities, such as Kim Kardashian and Jessie J, who find this “garment” pretty useful.

Speaking of the tape type, there are many variations you can consider, for example:
  • Gaffer tape
  • Sports tape
  • Double sided boob tape
  • Boob lift tape
  • Sticky boob tape
Let’s break them down.

1.Gaffer Tape

Gaffer tape is so-called Kim Kardashian boob tape. It is one of the most used types of bands, it's quite supportive, it feels comfortable on the skin, and women who've worn it claim that it stays in its place, without slipping down.

Gaffer tape shouldn’t be confused with duct tape, which is one of the most durable tapes that's mostly used for constructions and repairs. Accordingly, it can leave severe consequences on your skin, and it's not recommended to use it.

2. Sports Tape

If your skin is too sensitive, a gaffer tape can cause some irritations as well. The solution for such a problem lies in sports tape, that is already designed for direct application to the skin, which makes it more suitable for women with gentler skin.

Even though it’s softer and lighter, it’s still supportive, and you won’t have to worry about potential slipping down – everything will stay in its place, and you’ll be enjoying the comfort and beautiful cleavage.

3. Double Sided Boob Tape

Double-sided tape is mostly used to cover the gap between buttons on a top or a shirt. It’s got a similar function as a minimizer bra, but it works even more efficiently on low-cut dresses. One side will be stuck to your skin, while the other one will stick on your clothes, making sure your breasts don’t move.

It’s usually made of transparent material, which makes it convenient for every outfit you can imagine.

4. Breast Lift Tape

Boob lift tape, or push up boob tape is used to lift, separate, boost, and create a beautiful cleavage. It’s actually a tape that’s specifically designed to be applied on the skin, and since it provides excellent support, you’ll feel like you’re wearing skin-friendly duct tape.

Like a double-sided tape, this one is also made of transparent materials, and it’s suitable for all breast sizes.


5. Sticky Boob Tape

Sticky boob tape may remind you of the adhesive bra, but the “cups” are way thinner. Such breast tapes are mostly waterproof, and they are used to lift your breasts and create a nice cleavage.

To put them on, you need to stick the cups to both breasts, slightly lifting them as you’re applying the tapes.

How to Tape Your Boobs?

Now that you’ve learned some interesting stuff about this amazing item, you must be curious about how to tape your breasts up using it.

Before you even start with putting the tape on, make sure your skin is clean and not oily. Therefore, avoid any moisturizers or body milk since they’ll prevent the tape from sticking to your skin.

1. Low-Cut Outfits

Low-cut outfits require a bra whose bands won't be visible, but the DIY boob tape can do an even better job.

Here are three steps on how to tape boobs for low-cut tops and dresses:
  • Step 1: Take two pieces of tape and make sure they're about 13 inches long. The best boob tape to use is a medical or a sports tape since they’re less likely to cause skin irritations.
  • Step 2: Start taping from the outside of your breasts – lift each of them as you begin to tape from underneath and pull the tape up toward the back of your shoulder.
  • Step 3: Repeat the process by adding more strips toward the middle of the breast to cover the nipple – NOTE: it’s recommended to use cotton pads to protect the nipples.

2. Strapless Outfits

As you can see, the above-mentioned way of taping won’t work on strapless outfits – but, here is a special boob tape trick that helps with exposed shoulders.

Let’s see how to do that:
  • Step 1: Bring the breasts closer together and lift them until you create the shape that you want.
  • Step 2: Take a tape strip that’s about 12 inches long and start taking under your breasts from one side to another, making sure you’re covering them. You can put the tape higher or lower on the sides, depending on your outfit.
  • Step 3: Repeat the process by adding more strips that go above the previous ones. Again, don’t forget to place cotton pads under the tape that covers the nipples.

3. More Prominent Cleavage

If you want to create a more prominent cleavage, and you can’t achieve it with a regular push-up bra, then you should consider a Kim K tape boob.

Creating a breathtaking cleavage with tape is more or less a combination of the two previous methods, and all you need to do is to follow the steps below:
  • Step 1: Tape your breasts as if you were taping them for low-cut dresses (Go back to the first example).
  • Step 2: Once you’ve finished that, add more tape and extend it from the left breast to the right one, pulling the tape tightly as you go.
  • Step 3: Repeat the process about three times (or more, if necessary), starting from the base of the breast, moving towards the nipples.

How to Remove a Boob Tape Painlessly?

The very thought of removing the tape from your skin causes painful facial expressions. However, it doesn’t need to be like that.

The most critical thing you need to have in mind is that a rough attempt of removing the tape won’t help you at all, but it can damage your skin. Have a look at the following three ways of taking off the tape and be sure that neither of them will be painful nor dangerous.

1. Soak the Tape in Warm Water

The easiest and the most relaxing way of removing the boob tape is taking a warm bath or shower that would help it unstick faster. You can also use a wet towel, dampened with warm water, and lay it over the tape – that method will significantly help the tape fall off.

2. Use Baby Oil or Olive Oil

Even if you’re doing your best not to remove the tape roughly, the process may still be painful. In that case, grab a cotton pad and dip in it a baby or olive oil – once you’ve done that, follow the line of the tape and it will start peeling off slowly.

3. Remove It Slowly

Again, it’s essential to remove the tape slowly – you can do it by pulling the tape up towards your chest, while pressing in on your breast at the same time. Avoid pulling it away from your body at a 45 angle since it can cause injuries.

What are The Things You Should Be Aware Of?

Although the tape is quite safe to use, there are some things you should have in mind before you decide to put it. It’s essential to know that boob tape is not recommended to wear during pregnancy, breastfeeding, or if you’re facing some severe skin irritations.

Here are some other things that may occur while wearing a boob tape:

1. Applying It Too Tight

Most women want to make sure their breasts stay firm even after wearing the tape for a couple of hours, and that’s why they decide to apply it too tightly.

It causes a lot of discomforts, and it can induce some kind of internal injury due to restricted blood flow – it’s not so common, but you should be aware of the potential consequences.

2. … Or Too Loosely

The loosen tape can also cause discomfort. You might not achieve the look that you wanted, and you are at risk of exposing your breasts due to the lack of enough coverage and support.

If you’re not sure about the firmness of the tape, you can always add more strips that will enhance the stability of the self-made bra.

3. Weather Conditions

Yes, the external factors such as weather conditions can impact the efficiency of the boob tape. If it’s too hot outside, better forget about the tape – the sweat can affect the adhesiveness, and your skin becomes more prone to allergies and irritations.

For the same reasons, avoid taping the breasts when you’re going to the gym – consider buying a perfect sports bra instead, and get both excellent shape and support.
