OMG!!! :lol :lol :lol This thread is hilarious! I was having a real problem visualising the duct tape lift too, but seamom to the rescue!
I wonder if I can buy some of that duct tape Down here, or do I have to have it shipped from UpOver? And I reckon my DH would be more of a hindrance than a help. :grin
I still can't quite see how it can help to defy gravity, though.
Seamom.... thanks for sticking the drawing up for us to see :grin OK. got it now, You start building up from the ribcage.. that is what I could not fathom.. as if you only put it on your boobs.. you end up with those same boobs in the same place .. just covered with tape.
so does that tape under the boobs go all around to the back?
Oh.. I love the addition of the "petals" I think I will... stick with them :grin
Oh Ruby.................some of that was TMI!!! :lol
I found a website (www.everything2.com..but I was afraid to go further..lol) also discussing this problem.....and a tip to use something other than duct tape:
Speaking as a male, i know this for a fact.
My school throws a couple of drag balls a year. Being of the adventurous sort (occasionally) i decided to go in a simple female getup-- skirt and t-shirt with fake breasts. But, not having a training bra handy, I had to make my own.
The only things i had at first were balloons, unfortunately these had a way of migrating across my chest making me look like a woman with a mindbogglingly bad plastic surgeon. Or popping, and that's no good at all. Besides, they were very large and torpedo like.
So i went with Socks. While i could keep them in a reasonably tight tshirt for a little while, it was uncomfortable and to dance with them would be out of the question.
So i employed the only reasonable technique duct tape.
Duct tape chafes. This includes the sides and corners if not done properly.
Duct tape shows if put on improperly. I readjusted that t several times.
Duct tape Hurts when it is pulled off. Especially in sensitive areas.
Duct tape leaves a mark when removed.
And the reply was:
A tape which does make a good bra is known as Flexisex or Bondage Tape.
It is a PVC tape, available in black or red, which sticks only to itself, and not to you. There is sufficient on most reels to make a complete dress, top or other clothing. If making a bra, the remaining reel can be cut off when sufficient has been unravelled.
A large static build-up can occur while unravelling the reel - expect a shock or two.
It is almost impossible to wind neatly back onto the reel.
Shop around - prices vary considerably.
Application can cause dizziness!
OMG...too funny.......the more I google the more I find this is such a common discussion with the same queries...check this out :
I will check those links in a minute, but just wanted to say that Rick found some duct tape, and with a grin said "Are we going to try that?" after I explained this thread :lol But, I don't think there is enough to do the job. We'll have to get some more :grin This has me intrigued :lol
