The Best Damn…Beauty Invention AKA Fashion Tape

The Skinny Confidential talks fashion tape.

True story: when I was in Miami I went to this awesome black tie event. My outfit was all picked out. You know when you just have everything ready? For once my hair was done, my dress was pressed, makeup was finished…the F-ing works. Mind you, I was on time. Weird, right?

Anyway I go to put on my navy dress ( which I was/am SO excited about ) and I come to horrendous realization that if I move an inch AKA breath, my boobs will fall out.

Of course we had to rush out the door the second after I realized this.

So there I am in a cab, not able to move one centimeter. Yes, of course I’m wearing Nippies BUTTTT the dress needed something to stick to.

We pull up to the fancy party & there’s a guy with a tray of chilled champagne. I go to grab a flute and as I reach out to collect my champs, my left tit falls on to the tray.


This happened. I cannot make this shit up.

And uh, the waiter’s eyeballs basically popped out on tray too.

I go up to a waitress & politely ask her for Scotch Tape because man, oh, man, WTF am I supposed to do? Needed to make sure I didn’t have another mishap.

So I run to the bathroom with my Scotch Tape. BUT instead of using that crap, Michael’s mom saved the day because she ended up having FASHION TAPE:

If you don’t have fashion tape, RUN & I mean, RUN to your local Target.

Every girl/women in the whole world should have fashion tape. First off, it’s light & small ( so it fits perfect in a clutch ) & it will save your life when you’re in situations where you’re scared your boob is going to fall out on a champagne tray.

Also, all the celebs use it when they’re in a pinch.

And trust me, after my Miami pinch, I’m stocked & ready for life.

No more flashy-McFlasherson moments.

Wikipedia defines fashion tape saying it’s “also known as cleavage tapefashion tape and tit tape, is a double-sided adhesive tape, used to secure the edges of a strapless dress or top to the cleavage or side of the breasts or on shoulders to secure bra straps from slipping, in order to keep the item of clothing in place and to avoid a wardrobe malfunction. It may also be referred to as toupee tape or wig tape, a similar double-sided tape intended for a different function ( securing a hairpiece or merkin ).”

Thanks Wiki for defining tit tape so perfectly.

Have you guys tried fashion tape? Anyone else have any embarrassing-ass stories? Would LOVE to hear! xx

  1. I literally just LOLed at WORK reading this post haha Someone should have snapped a pic of the waiters face 🙂 I wonder if they make pasties that are also adhesive on the other side to kill 2 birds with one stone…

  2. Hehe! This post made me giggle, though I know it was NOT funny when it happened!! 🙂 I have three containers of this tape, and have even worn it to corporate events with a silk blouse that I CANNOT afford to have sag and show cleave! It’s the best!

  3. Fashion tape is a godsend! I experienced a similar incident but at my friend’s wedding! I was being spun around on the dance floor and well…you can guess what happened haha.

  4. I was reading this post in a meeting at work and literally LOL’ed. Literally aughed out loud, in the middle of a meeting. “This happened. I cannot make this shit up.” It’s too good. Thanks for the laugh! XO

  5. those of us who are card carrying members of the IBTC and can’t hold up our dresses know…been using this for years…it’s the best! sorry about your wardrobe malfunction…

  6. The dress is gorgeous! I guess I am a little surprised that you didn’t try it on first just to make sure everything stayed where it’s supposed to…

    But I’ll bet you looked like a million bucks… especially after you were able to breathe with confidence! 😉

  7. Haha a very similar situation happened to me, but with no fashion tape to save the day unfortunately! But it is a life saver! And while I have nippies, I have this beautiful ivory silk shirt with a lace back that I’m dying to go braless with but I can see the nippies! Any suggestions?? Thanks and love your blog!

  8. As a graphic designer…and specially during my uni years I used to have at least three packs of double sided tape in my bags, so naturally more than once I used them in similar occasions.
    Unfortunately we don’t Target shop in New Zealand but I guess there must be something similar (or a way to ship it) so I don’t have to use plain DS tape any more hahah


  9. Oh. my. god. dying here. My boobs are way too big to to have a low cut dress like that but I can imagine that it would be the most horrifying situation in the world. In front of his parents no less. Good god. That must have been awful/hilarious.

  10. I literally laughed out loud at that story, I have an even more embarrassing one – at my college graduation this past May, I was walking down from the stage after having received my diploma when I felt my girly-go-garter slipping (it’s a stupid invention my mom got me for Christmas, and this was my first time using it, simply to secure my car key). Halfway back to my seat, the nude lace garter is at my ankle and nearly tripping me, so I bend down to get it and try not to DIE as I hasten back to my chair. I still cringe!

  11. Nice information you’ve mentioned in the post. One should locate related information at a site such as go to site. This kind of site is helpful for individuals looking to find details of the concepts described here.

  12. The best boob tape i have found so far, and I have tried ALL of them as I run a dress agency and buy this stuff in bulk is Magic Boob Tape by Face Envy London…I have left the link in the link bit
