we're getting pretty real here today on alissandrab.
many of you messaged me, Snapchatted me, emailed me, and commented on my photos from this past weekend, where I wore a very low-back dress. here are some screenshots from a video Lu took:
and as you can see, it looks like my boobs have some sort of support (they're not sweeping the dust off the floor, if you know what I mean!)
now, when I got married, I wore a low back dress, but I had a custom fitted bustier. while perfect for that occasion, I'm not going to be doing this every time I want to throw on a backless or low-back top or dress!
so... what do I do? how do I get away with low backs? and for your reference, I'm a 34DD for the most part.
my secret is this: BOOB TAPE.
yes. I tape my boobs! I recently discovered this when I was panicking to find a low-back bra for the wedding I was pictured in above. the dress kinda showed everything, so I didn't want lines from a bustier/body suit.
after some Googling, I discovered Kim Kardashian's boob taping and soon after, a more accessible, easier version of that.
the taping I do is subtle: it's a little adhesive tape that is placed above your nipple and then you simply pull the tape up and secure it. it's super easy, takes 5 seconds, and then - your ladies are in place and lifted. the boob tape I bought comes with easy instructions and I purchased it in DD Cup +. you can buy it here on Amazon (I literally bought 10 packets and can't wait to use them all summer long!)
now let me tell you. I danced the night away in 85 degree weather and my boobs did not move. the tape didn't come off and it wasn't uncomfortable - I didn't notice it the entire evening. I taped my boobs at about 12pm and I didn't take the tape off until the party ended, around 1:30am. THAT'S OVER 12 HOURS! as for taking the tape off, it doesn't hurt much more than ripping off a Band-Aid.
there's one caveat: the boob tape I purchased doesn't cover your nipples, so if you're wearing something sheer, you may want to also purchase nipple covers. my dress came with slight pads that prevented my nips from peeking through. I recommend these, I've used them before for various reasons and they're great.
so yea. that's my big secret! it has seriously changed my life - I could never wear low-back anything, open-back anything. even racerback shirts were hard to wear. now, I've been buying backless dresses left and right!
