After Kim K revealed the secret to her awesome cleavage, one writer with 32E breasts put it to the test. Joanna Della-Ragione wrote for Daily Mail, “Having studied Kim’s technique, I deduced she used strips of the tape to create a sort of halterneck sling that lifts and brings boobs together,”
“Using about 10 long strips of gaffer, I recreated Kim’s homemade bra. It worked! My bosom was pert, full, lifted and supported—amazing results!”
“The downside? It was extremely uncomfortable to wear and far worse to take off. I gave myself an inadvertent breast wax and removed some skin in the process.
My skin was still red and raw hours later.”
She compared the gaffer tape to other alternatives including H&M’s self-adhesive gel bra, Fashion Forms Natural adhesive body bra, Eyure body tape, and Fashion Forms Natural ultra boost adhesive bra. This was her final verdict,
“I may have discovered the reason why adhesive cups that cover the breasts leaving wearers free to show off their skin in backless, strapless or frontless dresses don’t go up to an E-cup – it’s called gravity.
Gaffer tape, however, is a different entity entirely and strong enough even to hoik mine and Kim’s generous bust. But just because it works, doesn’t mean to say it looks good.
I felt ridiculous and would never leave the house with that much chest on show.
So I admit defeat and revert back to what I always believed: women with big boobs simply can’t wear plunging necklines.
Thanks for the tip Kim, but I’ll be sticking to my Nurse Ratchet bras and T-shirts from now on.”
