I have used duct tape in the past and my girls never looked better!  Prior to putting the tape on, I put all the strips of tape on a towel to fuzzy them up so they wouldn’t stick so strongly.  The idea was to make it easier to take off.  Well, that didn’t work well and did NOT end well… let’s leave it at that!  ha ha  

However, for our wedding I plan on duct taping my girls again.  Not even gonna bother with the towel trick this time since it didn’t make a difference.  Make sure to put a piece of gauze or cotton or something on your two “sensitive areas” to protect them from the tape.  I’m going to use the beige colored duct tape and am going to use Goo Gone to remove the tape at the end of the night.

Bridal stores should be able to give you some guidance on what you could wear.

I personally had a bad experience with duct tape…not so much the wearing of it…the removal was slightly painful lol.

I wore a strapless dress to an event. I also wore a strapless bra but I’m hauling DDs and was worried my dress/bra would slip while dancing. I used this stuff called “Dress and Lingerie Tape” by Fashion Forms. It was good in theory, but my god, the stuff took forever to apply because it came in small strips. If you go the taping route, I would give yourself extra time to get ready, or do a practice run.

I haven’t tried it, but there is also those larger adhesives used to lift the breasts and give them shape.

I have used duct tape in the past and it works wonders (E cup) I do however get an allergic reaction to it, one time I used tape from Bra’s n Things and it ripped my skin because my boobs were so heavy.

One word of advise, if you do tape your boobs put paper over your nipples. I made that mistake and won’t ever make it again.

I am only a b-cup…I don’t actually wear a bra at all, and my wedding was no different :-p

My bridesmaid dresses made a bra challending too. One Bridesmaid or Best Man (G cup…not kidding!) found a bra that has clear straps and back. One Bridesmaid or Best Man (C cup and preggers) just used pasties (so her perky nipples wouldn’t stick through her dress) and let the ‘girls’ settle as they pleased. One Bridesmaid or Best Man (DD cup) used one of those stick on backless bras…but she spent A LOT of money on getting a really good quality one.
