Tit Tape, Toupee Tape or Tacky Tape?

Tit Tape, Toupee Tape or Tacky Tape?

With party season upon us, for some of us getting to wear beautiful, risque-cut dresses or tops becomes an exciting choice and the best way to wear these dresses, sin bra, also becomes a factor. So what are the options for holding it all together? Tit tape, Toupee tape or tacky, masking tape? We visited the fabulous Ministry of Burlesque online forum to find out what professional burlesque dancers recommend. And if you’ve ever seen a burlesque show, you’ll know they are the experts.

For those with sensitive skin, the obvious tit tape option you can buy in decent lingerie stores can cause rashes, irritation or lose its stickiness and, therefore, become a liability. A newbie dancer revealed she had a pair of heavy rhinestones  pasties for which she started using double-sided sticky tape to keep them secure, however because she has sensitive skin, she was left with sore, angry red marks and peeling skin. Not a good look if you want to rip them off at some point. Lighter lingerie tape wasn’t safe enough either. She had heard of using Copydex adhesive, however as she has sensitive skin, she was reluctant to try it. So, she appealed to her fellow professionals. Here’s what they suggested:
Copydex works well on smaller boobs.

  • False eyelash Glue worked a treat with no nasty marks for a 36 DD dancer and they didn’t budge all night.
  • Toupee tape for sensitive skin as it’s stronger than tit tape as it’s designed to keep toupees on.
  • Spirit gum which is a quick-drying solution of gum, chiefly used by actors to attach false hair to their faces.
  • Double-sided tape.

It seems that for holding things in place, Toupee tape is the most reliable, effective and cheapest option, however, it’s definitely a case of playing around and deciding what’s best of you. It also depends on how revealing your dress is, and whether you need it to come off in a ladylike fashion at the end of the night…
