@mu_t:  I am wondering the SAME thing! So many pretty backless dresses and I’m terrified of boob tape lol. Hopefully someone can fill us in!

I just don’t know how well it can hold– I cut a bra strap off once to make it a one-shoulder bra (too last minute to buy one lol) and the tape kept falling off. Hopefully boob tape is wayyyyy sturdier!

  1. Plain old duct tape works, even for big busted gals.  You can use several strips but it will hurt like a ***** when you take it off unless you get it wet.  I would practice first too.

I have DDD boobs and I wore a backless dress. I wouldn’t trust the boob tape but I have worn many a backless evening gown and medical tape will hold the girls up through anything! Plus you look like you have perfect ta tas. its the secret of beauty pageants and celebrities. 

however, regarding my wedding dress there was no need even though it was backless. The seamstress sewed chicken cutlets into the dress for support and underwire. Everything stayed perfectly in place all night.

Have you tried the Nubra? I have used it and it works great for giving your boobs a little lift and lasts all night without a problem.  Best part is taht it doesn’t hurt when you take it off.  Not sure about tape as I have never used that…

Nope. It does not. It will fall off pretty quickly. Especially if you have a larger bust. it is not heavy duty stuff at all. I agree about trying duct tape so long as it doesn’t show through

@mu_t:  My BMs tried it for the wedding day and it just DID NOT work! We had sizes ranging from A’s to C’s 

 (worked better for the A cups but still wasn’t great)

I wouldn’t trust it Undecided

I could had used boob tape on my wedding day! Wish I knew where to get it. I hate my strapless bra.

It’s not meant for your skin, but I used a piece gorilla tape to hold up my Halloween costume and let me tell you, that sucker worked! Better than any other tape I tried. And it easily came off of my skin and the fabric of my costume- although not sure about a wedding dress. It’s a good last resort 🙂

@mu_t:  I’ve used double-sided dress tape when I used to perform with my salsa team and it did a good job holding up my costumes! We never really wore bras with our costumes either, but you may need to re-tape yourself at some point during the night.

I think it depends of the volume of your boobs. I have a large chest (28FF/G), but boob tape and stick on bras work great on me. If they are sized in cups, I purchase a C-cup. They last all night, and I find them comfortable.

In the summer, I wear a lot of backless dresses and will sometimes wear a Braza bra daily.
