what to do with "the girls"

Recommended Posts

lol this is kinda silly...

my dress fits perfectly so I don't need any alterations so I don't want to bother with getting the built-in cups. the dress is strapless and has a corset back where its all open. So I don't know how to get more lift. Anyone have any ideas??

Tape! I use tape more than strapless bras. They have clear duct tape that works good because it stays stuck if you get hot and sweaty, yet is clear so just in case you have your dress shift a little and some tape happens to show, it's not ugly grey duct tape that pops out.

 

I have to say, there are sometimes that it's not the most fun to take off at the end of the night, but it sure does it's job well throughout the day/night!

I agree with Raychel, it's an old pageant trick and it does the job well! Just make sure you don't have lotion on, because the tape won't stick as well...It does not feel great taking it off, but it's only for one night...Also, if you go with this trick, make sure you spot test a piece on your skin to make sure you won't have any sensitivities... No one wants a rash on their big day:) LOL!

As funny as this sounds, you do have to practice to get to where the "end product" looks like it's supposed to! I have tried those stick on cups before and for me they just don't work. They don't stay on as well, and sometimes they just don't look right with certain shirt or dresses. But that's just me.

Get a good strip of tape, long enough to where it will reach all the way cross the underside of your breasts, but not too long to where the ends up the tape will show under your armpits and outside your dress.

Bend over and start the tape roughly 3-4 inches down from your armpit.

Sweep the tape down and under your breasts while holding your breasts in and up (for lift and cleavage), then back up to the same place you started on the opposite side (roughly 3 inches down from your opposite arm pit)

The idea is that the tape should have a little bit of a U-shape (starting on one side underneath your armpit, going down under your breasts, then back up to the other side underneath the other armpit)

I don't go all the way under my breasts (to where they're hanging over the tape), because I guess depending on what size you are, it doesn't really do anything to help at all. When I tape across the girls I try to just hit the bottom of them (just under the nipple) so it lifts them up. I also usually use a couple to a few strips of tape so I get them just how I want them! ; )

MObride09 maybe you can explain it your way too, since I may have rambled too much for anyone to understand!

thanks so much for that explanation Raychel! Also, MObride, good call on the spot test. Last year in mexico I found out I was allergic to pineaple after having one of those yummy drinks, and then having a huge rash on my chest. Hopefully won't happen with the tape :) Hardware store, here I come!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
