Tips and Tricks
We always recommend patch testing before using Booby Tape. To do this, apply a small piece of Booby Tape on the breast area, without stretching the tape. Leave it on for 24 hours then peel it off slowly. This is to ensure that you have no sensitivity or allergies to the tape or the adhesive. If irritation or redness occurs during or after patch testing, discontinue use.
Apply to clean skin.
Only apply your tape to clean, dry skin that is free of moisturisers and oils. Do not apply to irritated, sunburned or sensitive skin.
Use nipple covers.
Booby Tape's Nipple Covers are the perfect accompaniment to your Booby Tape! We highly recommend using nipple covers prior to applying your Booby Tape to protect your sensitive areas. This will also make removing your Booby Tape a much more comfortable process.
Round the corners of each strip.
Trim the corners off each Booby Tape strip before applying it. This will help your tape sit firmly against your skin without the corners catching onto your clothes. If the corners of your tape start to lift, it can cause the rest of the strip to peel off.
Stretch your body part, not the tape.
Place your breast in the desired position, then apply your Booby Tape to hold your breast in place. Booby Tape has the stretch capability of up to 170% - similar to human skin but you should only apply a very small amount of stretch to your tape. This is how you can achieve the rounded breast lift look and not flatten your breast.
Avoid stretching your tape's "anchors".
Your anchors hold your strip of tape in place. The anchors are the ends of each strip that you cut (approximately one inch from each end.) You don't want the anchors to have any tension as this will help your tape last longer and more importantly, it reduces the risk of irritation caused by excess skin traction. If you experience any irritation where your anchors were at the time of removal, this is usually because you have overstretched the ends of your strips when applying the tape.
DO NOT wear for more than 6 hours.
The longer your wear your Booby Tape, the stickier the adhesive gets. We recommend to only wear your tape for a maximum of 6 hours. Prolonged use can cause irritation and discomfort when removing the tape.
BOOBY TAPE REMOVAL TIPS
Peel it off SLOWLY.
Booby Tape will come off easily if you peel your tape off gently and carefully. Start by peeling the tape back slowly, whilst supporting the skin behind the tape. That means, while one hand is peeling the tape off, the other hand is firmly holding back the skin behind the tape.
DO NOT use the “ripping off a band-aid” method.
Use Booby Tape Remover.
For a smoother removal, soak your Booby Tape with Booby Tape Remover and when we say soak, we mean soak! No amount of remover is too much, you want the tape to feel and look wet!
Allow the remover to soak in for up to 5 minutes before removing. If done effectively you will visibly be able to see the remover breaking down the adhesive in the Booby Tape, and the tape slowly peeling away from your skin.
