Everything You Need To Know Before You Wear BOOMBA Body Tape

Welcome to your entry-level course on using the Body Tape correctly.

Let us fill you in on a little secret: Body Tape is absolutely a must-have if you aim for braless-yet-perky breasts under your plunging outfits. Unlike traditional underwire bras— that ruin your whole look, BOOMBA Body Tape allows you to customize your bra to ensure you and your breasts get the support you need while staying completely invisible under your tricky outfits.

All of this is to say that BOOMBA Body Tape deserves a spot in your wardrobe, so we broke down a guide on using them properly to get optimal results. 

What To Do Before You Apply BOOMBA Body Tape? 

Do A Patch Test. 

The last thing you want is to wear the body tape on a night out, only to realize later that you are allergic to the tape! That’s why a patch test is always a good idea, especially if you have sensitive skin and have had reactions to products with adhesive in the past. 

To perform a patch test, apply a small amount of the tape to your skin. You can put it on your breast area or inner arm. Keep the strip on for about as long as you plan to wear the body tape. Then, remove the tape and check if your skin has signs of irritation, such as bumps and itchiness. Do not use the tape if you have any odd skin reactions. 

Clean and Dry Your Chest Area First.

Before applying the tape, you should clean your chest area with an oil-free cleanser or micellar water to remove any oils, lotions or makeup. This guarantees that the tape will stick properly to your skin.

Make sure to avoid applying lotions to your breast, back, shoulder, or any spot that could come in contact with the tape. An oily and slippery surface will prevent it from sticking. 

Ways To Use Body Tape

For Plunging Necklines

If your outfit has a plunging neckline, the best way is to tape your boobs individually to ensure that the tape will not be seen in the cleavage area. 

First, you have to measure and cut the required amount of tape. Make sure that it is long enough to cover from the bottom of your breast to the back of your shoulder. Then, lift your breast to the desired position and place one end of the tape to the outer edge under your bust line (where the underwire of a bra is usually placed). 

After that, press down the tape from underneath your bust up to your shoulder. Repeat the step on the other side and work your way inwards with two more strips of body tape. If you want more lift and support, you will have to stick the tape further down your back for a stronger hold.

For Strapless Outfits

First, cut a strip of tape. Make sure that it is slightly longer than the width of your chest. Then, adhere the tape onto the side of one breast, carefully pressing as you wrap it in front of you before securing the other end to the side of your other breast. Continue pushing and lifting your breasts together for maximum results. Repeat the step with two more strips, as it can create more support and a larger push-up effect. Ensure that you cannot see the tape behind or under your arms.

How To Remove The Body Tape Properly?

Remember the feeling when you ripped a band-aid off your skin after wearing it for hours? Ouchie, right? But did you know that there are ways to lessen the discomfort of peeling off the tape?

We recommend applying oil to your skin by removing the corner of the tape and gradually putting oil underneath it. This method helps break down the adhesive to make it easier to peel off.
