A Handy Primer on Breast Tapes and Their Types

Breast tapes have been a long-guarded secret in the showbiz for achieving the perfect cleavage amid those deep, plunging necklines.

But the cat is out of the bag. Breast tapes are now easily accessible to everyday women. Breast tape can offer ample lift to the boobs while also contouring them no matter the chest size. In addition, a correctly applied breast tape will help you feel snug and secure under any outfit you have put on.

Breast Tapes come in a variety of types.

The classical breast tape has the sole purpose of lifting breasts. Therefore, it’s a good option for beginners. A classical boob tape can achieve a lift in merely seconds and lasts all day.

Kinesio tapes used by athletes to minimise injuries are also commonly used as Breast Tapes. Because these tapes are skin-friendly indirect applications, they make the ideal breast tapes with zero to negligible skin burns and irritation.

A gaffer tape is one of the strongest breast tapes out there. A gaffer tape is used for more than just lifting breasts and can contour them to suit backless gowns or strapless dresses that you are wearing.

But selecting the suitable breast tape is just the beginning. Proper application of the breast tape to avoid skin irritation and prevent any general discomfort is just as important.

Breast tapes must stick to the skin snugly. Tape it too loose, and you will not achieve the desired look. Tape it too tight, and you risk feeling suffocated and nauseous from the restricted blood flow to the breasts.

The quality of the adhesive of the breast tape also matters. Your skin will be in contact with the adhesive more than it does with the actual tape. Therefore, a good quality breast tape should boast a good quality adhesive that offers a stronghold and facilitates easy removal. Going with a premium brand such as SKINES ensures that you get premium breast tape made from skin-friendly materials on the outside and a high-quality adhesive on the inside.
