If anyone knows better that beauty is pain, then Kim Kardashian is the one.
From blood-sucking vampire facial to forcing her swollen pregnancy feet in gladiator, strappy heels, Kim has shared another (painful) secret to her perky, round bosoms during photo shoots, and no it doesn’t involve surgery.
Kim calls a halter of gaffer tape her â€œsecret trickâ€ for the red carpet. â€œYou tape them up so theyâ€™re super lifted,â€ she wrote on her app. â€œIt takes a little work, but trust me, itâ€™s all worth it, LOL.â€
Kardashian has some tips if you want to try the gaffer bra the next time you hit the town in a plunging neckline.
â€œIâ€™ve used everything from duct tape to packing tape to masking tape, and I think that the best I found is gafferâ€™s tape [used for taping stage wires and available at Staples or Home Depot]. It sticks the best!â€
But be warned, itâ€™s not her most comfortable red carpet look. â€œ
Make sure you donâ€™t have any lotions or oils on when youâ€™re lifting your boobs up with the tape,â€ she says.
â€œJust brace yourself for when itâ€™s time to take it off, LOL.â€
If you’re wondering whether it works or not, one busty Daily Mail writer tried the trick and compared it to other bras, tapes, and pasties intended for plunging necklines, and found that Kimâ€™s trick is the best for lifting and enhancing.
â€œUsing about 10 long strips of gaffer I recreated Kimâ€™s homemade bra,â€ she recalled.
â€œIt worked! My bosom was pert, full, lifted and supported â€“ amazing results!â€ Still, she took issue with the sticky halter bra.
â€œIt 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.â€
Sounds scary. â€œMy skin was still red and raw hours later.â€
Want a major boob lift? Kim has you covered, but tape at your own risk.
