Duct tape instead of bra?

I have a posh do coming up and a dress that needs a bit more umph than I seem to be able to manage with a bra.

I also have a roll of duct tape.

Has anyone ever done this? It's the removal I'm more bothered about. Will it be really bad?

They did it on buzzfeed the other week. IIRC it works but removal isn't nice.

Hmmm. I need to practice first and now would be an ideal opportunity. But I'm too scared!

Wide masking tape will come off more comfortably than duct tape (the silver kind).

Will masking tape give me enough hold? I'm a 28g, but dont look as enormous as it sounds!

I think heating plasters with a hair dryer help with removal. Would probably worth with duct tape too.

What bras are you wearing? Are you sure they are the right ones for you?
Or is it a problem of a very low cut?

Why stop at bra?

Have you looked at stick in bras?

Wrap of cling film around first ?, before the duct tape

Won't it slip if you introduce cling film?

OP I think you need proper sold-for-purpose tit tape as the mere thought of removal of duct tape is making me shudder.

Use oil to remove/help remove the tape.

if you must sellotape up your tits because of a really badly designed dress; there's something called zinc tape which is used for sports injuries, designed to stick to skin and deliberately non stretch.

to get it off again, have a couple of long baths. Any adhesive residue will come off with surgical spirit.

I use it. on my KNEE.

What? You wedge a roll under each boob?

Don't do it!!

I stupidly did it so I could wear a ridiculous backless (practically front less) gold dress to a party - the next morning I tried a hairdryer a soak in a bath and still was left with gluey, red raw underboob - honestly I couldn't wear a bra for ages (now that's irony)

Amazon do loads of body tapes and strapless backless stick on bra doo dads - go with one of those.

You need to practice, but take it seriously.

Tape, put dress on, sit, walk for at least a couple of hours, and, most importantly drink some wine, just to test in every possible situation.

I gave it a try and it works! Came off surprisingly easily and I wonder if it is as sticky as the proper stuff. I got this one www.hobbycraft.co.uk/duck-tape-funky-leopard-48-centimetres-wide/598818-1015#product_description-tab

Don't use any body creams and oils, save those for the taking off phase.

ImMeMe Sun 06-Mar-16 20:38:36

I did take it off after about 10 mins though. I do think if I left it longer it might have been trickier to remove...

Maybe it was the sleeping in it pissed that made my boobs suffer so, but I do get eczema so it may have been a reaction. God its making my boobs hurt thinking about it.
