You just need to know how to tape your boobs properly!
Are you looking to wear a deep plunge or backless dress but don’t want to go braless? You should wear a bra!
However, most backless bras do not provide adequate support. You may have tried different bra options with your backless dress but none may have worked.
If you have big boobs, you already know how stressful finding a good backless dress bra can be. In fact, they just don’t work if you have a large bust.
Here are the couple of the popular options available on the market:
- Bra Adhesives. These will give your breasts a lift but are not suitable for people with fuller breasts.
- The Fashion Forms U-Plunge Bra. This bra is great for wearing with plunge necklines if you don’t need support.
- The NuBra. This is a great bra for creating a full cleavage for ladies that have smaller breasts. However, the bra does not provide any support.
If you have small breasts, the above options may be suitable for you. However, they typically offer little to no support. If the options don’t work for you, then you should think of taping your breasts!

What is Boob Tape?
So, what exactly is boob or breast tape?
As the name suggests, a boob tape is the tape uses to tape the breasts. This tape can be anything, from athletic tape to duct tape! While you can use any tape to hold the boobs, keep in mind that their strength differs.

What You Need to Tape Boobs
Taping your breasts should not cost you a lot. All the items you need are cheap. The items include:
- Medical Tape or Gaffer Tape
- Cotton Pads (for covering the nipples when you are taping the boobs)
- Olive Oil (makes it easy to remove the tape)
Preparing to Tape the Breasts
Before you tape the breasts, it helps to prepare the skin to end up with the best results. Make sure that the skin is not oily, i.e. you should not apply lotion or moisturizer when you intend to tape the breasts. Oily skin makes it difficult for the tape to stick. If the skin is oily, wash the oil off.
It is also important to patch test the tape for allergic reactions to the glue. If you have sensitive skin, you may experience some redness or irritation. This is normal and you won’t be at risk of getting any permanent damages.
How to Tape Breasts for a Plunge/Backless Dress
If you are planning to wear a backless or plunge dress, you can tape your boobs to lift them and boost your cleavage. Your taping should look like Kim Kardashian’s in the picture below.
However, you can tweak the tape depending on the dress you are wearing, for example, if it has thinner straps.
Follow the steps below to tape your boobs when wearing a backless dress:
Step 1: Get the Gaffer or Medical Tape and cut about 12 inches of the tape. Tape the boob starting from its base to the shoulder using the strip of tape. Lift your breast a little bit up and tape it.
For maximum lift and hold, make sure the tape is long enough to extend to your shoulders. However, consider the dress you plan to wear to know where the tape should extend to.
Step 2: Repeat Step 1 above with about two more strips of tape. However, this time you should tape going inwards. Remember to put a cotton pad on the nipple before taping over it.
Step 3: Carry out Step 2 on the other boob
Step 4: This step is optional. Depending on the type of plunge dress you have, you can tape horizontally under the breasts. Lift the boobs a little bit, bring them together and tape them. The result will be a push-up effect.

How to Tape Breasts for a Strapless/Backless Dress
You can also tape your boobs if you are wearing a strapless backless dress. The taping procedure is the same as above but should look like this:
Step 1: Lie down on your back or lean over before you tape. Regardless of the shape you want to create, you will have to lift up the breasts and bring them together.
Step 2: Cut a strip of about 12 inches of tape and start taping under the breasts from side to side. Make sure you encapsulate the boobs when taping. Depending on the kind of dress you will be wearing, you can bring the tape higher or lower on the sides.
Step 3: Repeat the procedure with two more strips of tape, ensuring that you are taping over the previous one. Make sure you have covered your nipples with a cotton pad before taping over them.

How to Remove Boob Tape
Taking off breast tape is not a pleasant experience. However, the procedure will be less painful when you follow the tips below.
