7 Creative Ways to Use Body Tape for Styling Outfits

Body tape is the unsung hero of the styling world, and we're about to reveal some stick-tacular tricks that'll have you wondering how you ever dressed without it.

Whether you're rocking a female body suit or a sleek black full body suit, these tape techniques will keep you looking flawless from head to toe.

The Sticky Situation: Do You Wear Underwear with Bodysuits?

Before we dive into our tape tricks, let's address the elephant in the room - or should we say, the panties in the bodysuit? The age-old question of whether you're supposed to wear underwear with bodysuits has puzzled fashionistas for years.

Here's the lowdown.

Generally, you don't need to wear underwear with bodysuits, especially if they have a cotton gusset. This built-in liner provides breathability and moisture-wicking properties, keeping things fresh down under. However, if your bodysuit lacks this feature or you're prone to yeast infections, slipping on some moisture-wicking undies might be a smart move.

Now that we've got that covered (or uncovered), let's stick to our main topic!

7 Tape-tastic Ways to Style Your Outfits

  1. The Plunge Protector

Rocking a daring, low-cut bodysuit? Use Butt-Chique Body Tape to secure the edges to your skin. Here's how:

  1. Clean and dry your skin thoroughly.
  2. Cut a strip of tape slightly longer than the neckline edge.
  3. Apply one end to the inside of the bodysuit, then gently pull and adhere along the edge, pressing firmly.

This technique works wonders for both regular and long sleeve bodysuits, preventing wardrobe malfunctions while allowing you to flaunt that plunging neckline with confidence. The Butt-Chique Body Tape is made of 100% cotton with medical-grade acrylic adhesive, ensuring a secure hold that's gentle on your skin.

  1. The Thong Thing

Want to avoid visible panty lines with a non-thong bodysuit? Create a makeshift thong using Butt-Chique's body tape:

  1. Cut a strip about 12 inches long.
  2. Starting from the center back of the bodysuit, apply the tape vertically, adhering it to your skin as you go.
  3. Gently pull the tape between your legs and attach it to the front of the bodysuit.

This DIY thong effect ensures a smooth, seamless look under tight-fitting clothes without the need for additional underwear. As Butt-Chique's body tape is stretchy and sticky, it allows for easy positioning and support.

  1. The Strap Trap

Banish pesky bra straps with this clever trick:

  1. Cut two 3-inch strips of Butt-Chique body tape.
  2. Lift your bra strap and place one strip horizontally across your shoulder.
  3. Fold the strap down onto the tape, then cover with the second strip.

This works especially well with off-shoulder or sleeveless bodysuits, keeping straps hidden all day (or night) long. For extra security, use a slightly longer strip to wrap around the strap in a figure-eight pattern.

  1. The Gapless Wonder

Say goodbye to button-up shirt gaping:

  1. Cut small, 1-inch strips of Butt-Chique body tape.
  2. Place these between buttons where gaping occurs, adhering one side to the shirt and the other to your skin.
  3. For bodysuits, focus on the chest area where gaps are most common.

This technique not only prevents accidental flashing but also creates a smoother, more polished silhouette. Perfect for achieving that "polished, go-to look for the season" that Butt-Chique is known for.

  1. The Hem Hack

Keep your bodysuit perfectly tucked with this simple trick:

  1. Cut 2-3 inch strips of Butt-Chique body tape.
  2. Apply these horizontally along the bottom hem of your bodysuit, spacing them evenly.
  3. Remove the backing and press firmly against your skin when you put on the bodysuit.

This prevents riding up and ensures a smooth, seamless look, especially effective with high-waisted jeans or skirts. It's all about creating that "360° Body Contouring" effect.

  1. The Nip Slip Nixer

For revealing outfits like a black full body suit, use Butt-Chique body tape for extra coverage:

  1. Cut two 2-inch strips in an X shape.
  2. Place these over each nipple, then cover with a slightly larger circular piece for maximum security.

This technique provides peace of mind without adding bulk or visible lines under your outfit. For extra protection, consider using Butt-Chique's Pasties or Nipple Covers before applying the tape.

  1. The Slit Savior

Rocking a high-slit skirt or dress? Use Butt-Chique body tape to prevent wardrobe malfunctions:

  1. Cut strips about 4-5 inches long.
  2. Starting at the top of the slit, apply tape to both the fabric and your skin, working your way down.
  3. Space strips about 2 inches apart for flexibility.

This allows you to move freely without worrying about overexposure, letting you confidently strut your stuff all night long.

Tape It or Leave It: Tips for Perfect Application

Now that you're armed with these sticky strategies, here are some tips to ensure your tape game is strong:

  1. Clean and dry: Ensure your skin is clean, dry, and free from oils or lotions before applying tape.
  2. Cut to size: Trim the tape to the perfect length for your needs.
  3. Gentle removal: When it's time to un-tape, remove slowly and gently to avoid skin irritation. We recommend coating the tape with coconut oil or lotion and letting it absorb for 15 minutes before removal.
