Why use kinesiology tapes as boob tapes

Kinesiology tapes were originally created to aid muscle movement and were developed to enhance athletic performance. And ladies, oh we’ve had our fair share of shedding blood, sweat, and tears when we try to get ready for our date nights and special events. 

Here’s why kinesiology tape is a game-changer:

1. Sweatproof

Kinesiology tapes were made for athletes. It’s meant to withstand sweat during training, workouts, and competitions. And, if you feel the need to show your Macarena moves at your sister’s outdoor wedding, by all means, break a sweat!

2. Water-resistant

Once you stick them on dry skin, unlike the guy who ghosted you, these tapes will stick around. You can use them in the shower or at the beach. While most bikini tops were made with little to no support, kinesiology tapes are best to keep those babies up without worrying about them getting wet and falling off. 

3. Hypoallergenic

Your body is sacred and not some household appliance you need to MacGyver with industrial tape. 

Kinesiology tapes are meant to be applied to the skin. It’s made to ride out the most intense movements and conditions without hurting your skin. With its breathable material and gentle-to-the-skin adhesive, you can wear these tapes for days.

4. Customizable

Big boobs, small boobs, uni-boob, floor-ward boobs - kinesiology tapes are meant for every shape and size. By shaping the tape based on the lift you want or reshaping your boobs back to their glory days, kinesiology tapes give you the freedom to transform your look to your heart’s desire.

Different ways to use boob tapes

Need a lift? Let us show you how it’s done - red carpet style.

1. Sweetheart necklines

Sweetheart neckline

For this type of neckline, you would want the lift and the cleavage. Start by sticking your tape by the side of your rib going up to the opposite side right by your armpit and adjust accordingly depending on the neckline of your top or dress. 

Whether you’re in a colorful vibrant top kind of mood or you’re going for neutrals, you can either go safe with beige tapes or play around with some colorful tapes. Check out our colored and neutral tapes here

2. Plunging necklines

Ready to take the plunge? This plunging neckline technique is perfect for you! 

For some gravity-defying techniques using the tapes, cup your boobs and stick the tape under your boob and lift your boob to your desired level and stick the other end of the tape on your shoulder. 

Follow the angle of your neckline to make sure your tape doesn’t stick out. Make sure the tape covers your nipple and secure the sides of your neckline with some fashion tape. Best to use beige tapes for light-colored tops and black for your go-to LBDs. Check out our beige and black tapes here

3. Halter necklines

Halter neckline

Whether the straps meet by your nape or are crisscrossed in front, it’s best to start taping from the top where it doesn’t show, then cup your boob and lift it to your desired height and stick the other tape under your boob. You can use pre-cut tapes since you won’t be needing long tapes to achieve this. You can check out our pre-cut tapes here

4. Asymmetrical necklines

Asymmetrical necklines

If you’re vibing the asymmetrical look, boob tapes should be your go-to bra alternative.  First, tape the boob where the strap or sleeves are and follow the angle of the strap. Then tape the other boob without it peeking through. 

Since your boob on the strap side may make that boob face outwards (we don’t want that), you may want to put tape across your underboob up until the nipple area to keep them closer together. Don’t forget to use your kinesiology taping scissors to customize the width of the tape. Check out our taping scissors
