Debunking Common Myths About Boob Tape

By Riya Agarwal on June 13, 2021

The internet is a wonderful place. From deep diving into subreddits to watching endless compilations of adorable cat videos, it certainly offers something for everyone. But like everything else, the internet has its pitfalls. Fake news and unjustified rumors are far more common than ever before.

If you’ve heard about Body tape, you probably have come across some claims that might make you wary of using it. We’re happy to put such doubts to rest with our all-telling post.

1. Unsuitable for direct skin contact
FALSE. Boob tape is exclusively designed to be applied directly on skin. It’s an hypoallergenic product that’s perfectly safe for every skin type. That being said, it is always advised to do a patch test before application.

2. Only works on small boobs
FALSE. If you are a big-busted lady, you may be on the fence about Boob tape. But there is no need to be! Whether you are a member of the itty-bitty titty committee, have large breasts or fall somewhere in between, body tape works for all boob sizes.

3. Doesn’t provide support
FALSE. What’s the point of wearing boob tape if it doesn’t provide you support? Boob tape has strong adhesive that adheres to your skin and gives your breasts the lift you are looking for.

4. It’s stiff
FALSE. Many people assume that Body tape is just like regular tape, stiff and crinkly. But that’s not the case, at all. Boob tape is stretchable enough to properly mould to your body shape and provide the necessary coverage and support. Just like well-fitted underwear, it won’t be visible under your clothing, no matter the fabric.

5. Comes undone with sweat or water
FALSE. As previously mentioned, Body tape is crafted with a premium adhesive that sticks to skin. In addition to that, it is sweat proof as well as waterproof. So whether you are going to the beach or going out on a sweltry night, you can rest assured that boob tape will stay in place.

6. It’s uncomfortable
FALSE. Boob tape is unlike any other utility or craft tape you have seen in everyday life. Instead of plastic, it is made with 100% cotton, which is comfortable and breathable.

7. Ideal for all-day use
FALSE. While Body tape is hypoallergenic and safe to use directly on skin, it has its limitations. It should be ideally worn for 6-8 hours, and not more than 10 hours at a stretch. It is also better to avoid wearing it two days in a row.

Now, let’s take a look at some details that are, in fact, true about Boob tape.

1. Unsuitable for breastfeeding or diabetic women
TRUE. If you are a new mother or suffer from diabetes, Body tape is not suitable for you.

2. Shouldn’t be worn while sunbathing
TRUE. Whether you’re going to be in a high heat environment or under direct sunlight, you should not apply Boob tape.

3. Requires careful removal
TRUE. Removing Body tape is not like removing tape from a box. You can’t just rip it off. It’s important to properly soak the tape in lotion or oil to loosen the adhesive and carefully peel it off.
