Bought it for a Strapless Dress
on January 20, 2014
I didn't purchase this for a bathing suit, but I did have a theory: if it held up in water, it should hold up at a calm, dry dinner party. The tape is double-sided and comes in an easy to use dispenser. My intention was to hold up a satin strapless dress. I didn't plan on dancing, sweating, or doing anything crazy that might yank the dress off. My main concern was hiding my undergarments and keeping the dress from sagging and looking unattractive on my bosom.
- you get lots of tape
- double sided with paper on each side (peel side A, adhere to skin, peel side B, press on garment)
- clear and disguises easily
- pretty strong stuff, but not miracle tape
- waterproof against sweat (and I assume the pool too)
- I wish it were stronger against skin
- I wish it were gentler against fabric
- hard to apply (every tiny mistake means you have to yank it off and start over)
- will not stick to skin unless you wipe it with alcohol (soap and water won't cut it)
- comes in 1/2" strips, but might be more efficient in thicker bands (like 3/4")
The best way to use this is to shower with cool water and a bar soap (not moisturizing body wash which might leave oils), then wipe the areas you want with rubbing alcohol, and immediately apply the tape to your skin first. Then peel the top paper off and stick your garment to the tape/skin. Don't put it on the fabric first, because it will wrinkle. Only then, once everything is in place, can you apply lotion. It just won't stick any other way. Also, use little 2" strips at a time. One long piece is less effective. You want tiny strongholds all over the place, not one huge defense system. It distributes the force more evenly. Physics.
