When you want to show some extra skin without a wardrobe malfunction or want a smooth, braless look under a sleek dress, boob tape is here to save the day.

Whether you're trying to rock that plunging neckline without a wardrobe malfunction or aiming for a smooth, braless look under a bodycon top, boob tape is your go-to. We’re walking you through everything you need to know about how to use boob tape to get that perfect lift and shape along with removal tips and tricks.

So get ready to kiss your bra goodbye and give your girls the perfect lift and support no matter the occasion.

You Need Boob Tape Babe

With boob tape, you don’t have to deal with straps that dig in, backs that bulge, and cups that just can't keep up with your style. The right boob tape can help you embrace freedom, so no outfit is off-limits.

But that’s not the only reason we back boob tape. Here’s some more:

  • Versatile: Boob tape isn’t just for your girls! Body tape can be used to create a barrier between your thighs, which can prevent friction and chafing. You can even give yourself a snatched waist with strategically placed body tape – perfect for those bodycon dresses that highlight your curves.
  • Invisible: No more worrying about unsightly lines and staps. Unlike traditional bras and underwear, body tape is virtually invisible under clothes. This creates a truly seamless look.
  • Convenient: It’s easy to keep your boob tape in your bag for when you need it. Perfect for those unexpected nights out or temporary fix for a wardrobe malfunction.

Get Sticky With It: How to Apply Boob Tape

Grab your tape, and let's get sticky with it! Because, babe, once you tape, there's no going back. Here’s a quick breakdown of how to tape your boobs with body tape.

1. Patch Test

The experts at Real Simple recommend using a patch test before you commit to using boob tape. At Swank A Posh, our boob tape uses a medical-grade adhesive, so it is generally safe for most skin types. However, some people may experience skin irritation or sensitivity.

Simply place a small square on your boob for a few hours and check for any irritation once removed. If you experience discomfort or irritation, discontinue use immediately.

2. Prep the Girls

Before you apply the tape, make sure your skin is clean and dry. Don’t use any oils or moisturizers before application or the tape may not apply properly. The last thing you want is a wardrobe malfunction, so preparation is key!

3: Plot For Placement & Cut

Don’t go wasting your boob tape. As the saying goes, “Measure twice, cut once,” which is true for body tape too. The fashionistas at Byrdie recommend using nude eyeliner to mark the outline of your top on your skin. This ensures you’re cutting just enough strips of tape for what you need.

4. Apply Your Boob Tape

Finally, it’s time to apply your body tape. It’s recommended to use nipple covers to protect your most sensitive skin.

While there are a few different application techniques, you will primarily be using the lift and separate method. Simply lay the boob tape starting from underneath your breast and gently pull upward. This is ideal for lifting your breasts. Then press the piece of tape firmly and hold it for a few seconds so it has time to adhere.

Practice makes perfect, so try a few times to get the right lift and shape you want.

How to Use Boob Tape for Strapless Dress

Boob tape is a great alternative to a strapless bra. Apply it by running strips of tape horizontally from the bottom side of one breast to the outside of the other. Layering trips for a bandeau look helps to create some lift without flattening your chest.

How to Use Boob Tape for Backless Dress

For a backless or even low-cut top, it’s all about lifting your breasts up with body tape. You can use the lift and separate method or a crisscross for some extra support.

Tips for Removing Boob Tape

After a night out it’s time to let the girls down. To remove body tape, you can use oil. Apply a generous amount of oil over the tape and the skin around it. Let it sit for at least five minutes, and then gently peel off the tape. The oil will help loosen the adhesive, making it easier and less painful to remove the tape from your skin.

If any adhesive residue remains, use some rubbing alcohol to dissolve it. It’s as easy as that!
