I’m going to a wedding on Friday, and I have a few dresses I’ve never worn because of the open back. Has anyone ever tried the taping method? I read a lot of reviews of the sticky bras online, and a lot of people suggested that the tape is the best method out there. I know there’s this super harsh tape that Kim Kardashian uses — it works but apparently kills. I was thinking of grabbing some athletic tape. Has anyone done this, and do you have tape-type suggestions? I’m not huge (B cup). I think I’d prefer the tape to the bra cups, and I like that it will be cheaper.

musket87 : Hi! Yes I have done this (and I have Ds ). I don’t think I have gotten it down quite yet, but it has come in handy for those backless shirts and dresses that are so cute. I always use cloth/medical tape because it doesn’t hurt so much coming off and most important doesn’t have hard edges that you can see under clothes.
I say practice practice practice before you want to use it, because it’s stressful when it doesn’t look right and you don’t have any other alternatives (and also, stress causes sweat which makes it harder to place the tape).

I love these sticky bras- They are reusable and only $15! Easy to put on and not as scary as tape.
My GFs and I swear by these.

Same as PP, I’m a dd/ddd and I use medical tape. I haven’t “perfected” it but I’ve mastered it enough to get the job done and work for the night. Eventually, I need to learn to tape into a better shape if that makes sense.

chigirl217bride : Yes! I feel like bigger breasts tend to get kind of “smushed” (for lack of a better word) because we need more support, and to get more support we need to use more tape

Back when I was a slimmer chic and only rocking th B-cup…I didn’t ever wear a bra! I was actually braless on my wedding day (and skipped the panties too..oooh la la!) and nobody could tell. It wasn’t until I gained some weight and slowly evolved to a D-cup I realised it was nolonger approproate to be ‘living free’.
Anyways…I have no experience with taping, but my cousin would always tape for special events (to show off her back tats in overly fancy dresses with plunging backs…it’s kind of her thing) and she seldom had a problem.

Never tried taping, but I have used kinesiology tape for its intended purpose before. I wouldn’t imagine it working well for supporting your chest… It’s only designed to put the slightest tension on the top of your skin and is designed to stretch.Granted, I could be wrong and it could work like a charm, but I just don’t see it having enough strength to do what you’re looking for.
