She may not have a reputation as one of the smartest people in the world but we think that some of her beauty hacks are absolute genius. Kim Kardashian recently took to her app to tell her secret to gravity defying cleavage without a bra.
If you’re into plunging necklines and cut outs like we know Kim is, then wearing a bra isn’t always an option. The only choice for a seamless looking ensemble is to go without, but for most people above an A-cup this means less than perfect looking cleavage.
Kim tells us that her trick to a perky looking chest – no matter the dress – is gaffer tape. That’s right. Gaffer tape. You can buy it at most good hardware stores for $5, which is a hell of a lot cheaper than the fancy backless bras and Hollywood stick on versions that, according to Kim, do not work as well.
Kim says, “I’ve used everything from duct tape to packing tape to masking tape, and I think that the best I found is gaffer tape. It sticks the best!” She says that for best results, ensure that you have no moisturizer or oil on the skin that could cause the tape to become slippery throughout the night.
The method to this madness is to apply the tape in an up wards direction, and wrap up to your neckline for the best hold. This lifts your chest and gives you the appearance of perky cleavage all without a bra. Of the process to remove the tape, Kim gives a few words of advice: “brace yourself! But trust me, it’s all worth it.”
