This article has all the information concerning boob taping. 

What Is Boob Taping?

Have you seen your favourite actresses like Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra, Malaika Arora, Samantha Ruth Prabhu, etc. wearing nude dresses, strip dresses with low V-neck or halter neck dresses that are cut down to bust? If you like to don on any such dress, you can make the best out of the boob taping technique.

You take the adhesive strip and tape it around the cup area of your breast. You can alter the length, width and stretch of the tape according to your requirement. There are no fixed rules that you have to follow to achieve the perfect taping.

Whether the neckline is triangular or has cutouts, finding a perfect bra for such couture is almost impossible. Then how do you wear such dresses without showing the bra or creating an embarrassing look for yourself? You must try out the boob taping technique.

Depending on the stretch of the neckline, you can tape the breasts horizontally or vertically. It depends on your convenience to stretch them outwards or push them inwards. You can also stretch them upwards to achieve the perfect cleavage look.

Strapless Dress Or Top

We know the struggles of wearing a strapless bra. Either you are always fixing it or tugging it below the neckline. But you will not have to come across the same issue with breast tape. For such a dress or top, you must start taping the boobs from the underbust area to give them a lift. 

When you stick the adhesive, stretch the strip in the upward direction. You can secure small vertical strips with a horizontal one and end it where the breast tissues begin, under the armpits area. A double layer will also prevent the nipples from poking out.

For Low Cut Dresses Or Tops

The necklines that remain open down to the sternum cannot be worn with any kind of bra. In such a case, boob tape is quite helpful in holding the breasts without showing off from the sides. 

For such dresses, you must tape the breasts in the middle and stretch them in the upward direction for a cleavage. If you want to avoid the cleavage look, you can stretch the breasts outwards.

Tips To Keep In Mind Before Taping

  • Before you start taping your breasts, do a patch test first to ensure that your skin is not sensitive to the adhesive. It is for beginners.
  • It is always better to use latex-free and hypoallergenic products to prevent irritation and redness.
  • Always apply the tape on clean and dry skin, or the adhesive might not stick properly.
  • Ensure that the tape does not show from the sides or middle of the necklines in a dress.
  • If the excess tape is showing off from your piece of clothing, take scissors and carefully cut the piece.

How To Remove The Boob Tape

A boob tape can stay on your breasts for about 24 hours. Its adhesive is strong enough to hold your breasts together, while it is not sticky enough to cause a problem when removing. You can easily pull off the tape from your breasts without experiencing any pain. However, one must remove it slowly and not in a sudden motion like a waxing strip.

A woman can also apply oil after removing the breast tape to aid redness. You can also apply olive oil or any body oil. Most of these tapes are sweat and water-proof, so it is better not to try removing them by jumping into the shower. It will do no good.
