How to Apply Boob Tape

elle line break

The art of effectively (and safely) applying boob tape may seem daunting, but the good news is that a lot of brands provide a step-by-step guide on how to apply and remove it. Be sure to follow any instructions that come with your specific product. Ward implies that there may be a learning curve to achieving a seamlessly smooth application, so slow down! “Take your time when applying, it can be tricky to lay down smoothly on your first try. Grab a mirror and don’t rush it!”

Make sure you’re applying boob tape to clean, dry skin to get extra stick—any moisturizers or oils sitting on your skin will weaken your results in terms of strength and hold. Before you apply your tape strips, always protect your nipples with either nipple covers or a cotton gauze pad (you’ll be thankful for this when it’s time to remove the tape). Ward also suggests “making sure you purchase the [tape] color that is as close to your skin tone as possible.” This way, it’ll stay less noticeable. Use longer strips, and apply the tape for whatever look and support level you need—whether that’s crisscrossed, pulled taut over your shoulders, or layered horizontally for strapless support.

How to Remove Boob Tape

When it’s time to remove the tape, be extra careful that you’re not ripping away layers and taking your skin along with them. Some brands make products specifically designed to help with removal, but you can also use an oil-based product to work into the tape, or take a warm shower to help loosen the adhesive. Start from the corner, and slowly peel off your tape one strip at a time. Once you’ve cleaned off any excess adhesive, it’s a good idea to hydrate your skin to calm any irritation or damage that may have occurred.
