Kim Kardashian’s app is the place to go for women who want to know just about anything there is to know about how to look good. Kim explains the details of what the Hollywood Gossip describes as “all the crap women go through” to be perfect every time they leave the privacy of home for the big mean streets — and waiting cameras. The second-oldest Kardashian sister’s latest post is all about the Kardashian breast tape system for making women’s breast look, well, like Kim’s breasts.
Like all the Kardashian sisters, Kim, age 35, is known for her plunging necklines, skin-tight clothes, and breast exposure to the point that onlookers wait on tenterhooks for a “major nip-slip.” The reality star likes to go braless, in combination with revealing clothes that still don’t quite reveal the details.
Now, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has decided to share her insight and experience with other women so that they too can prevent the nip-slip risk and make their breasts really stand out. It turns out there’s a reason Kim hardly ever suffers a wardrobe malfunction that shows even more of her breasts than she intends. However low the neckline, or casually draped the top, the KUWTK star nearly always takes preventive action to keep the nipples covered.
Kim’s secret is her “handy-dandy tape trick,” and she shared a throwback photo to her Instagram account to prove that she’s had the trick up her sleeve for a long time. Kardashian called it “the red carpet cleavage tape trick I’ve been doing for years!”
InStyle magazine shared some of the inside scoop from Kim’s website, where she explains why the tape is so important for her breast shape.
“It’s my secret trick to have perfect cleavage in photos.”
The picture on Instagram is enough to show fans exactly how Kim tapes her breasts, but she goes through the process step-by-step on her app. The first thing, of course, is to use the right kind of tape. Duct tape is often considered the fixer for just about anything that needs fixing, and Kim actually did try it in the beginning, but she’s found a much better option for her Kardashian breasts. Kim says that having tried all kinds of tape to keep her breasts in shape, she’s decided that she’ found the best one for the job.
“I’ve used everything from duct tape to packing tape to masking tape, and I think that the best I found is gaffer’s tape.”
According to Kardashian, it makes a big difference where on the breasts you start taping. If you tape first at the top of the breast, the “suspender-like harness” won’t hold the way it’s supposed to. Kim explains that you have to start with the under breast area, then tape your way up. The last step is making sure the tape goes over the shoulder to create a lift for the breasts to prevent drooping, something that really wrecks the curvy image of “big-breasted” ladies like Kim and her Kardashian sisters.
“You tape them up so they are super lifted. It takes a little work but trust me it’s all worth it LOL.”
There is one part of Kim’s breast tape exercise that might not be worth it, depending on how high your pain threshold is. The bad news is that what goes on the breasts, must come off the breasts! Anyone who’s ever had to rip off a band-aid is probably already thinking about what it’s going to feel like at the end of a long day smiling at fans and flirting for the camera, when the moment of reckoning arrives. Kardashian doesn’t have any advice for making the removal of the tape easier. She only mentions that you will have to “brace yourself for when it’s time to take it off LOL.”
LOL? Yikes! What do you think? Would you rather risk a nip-slip, use the Kim Kardashian beast tape method, or take the easy way out and just choose higher necklines?
