Waterproof TapeWhat, you must be wondering, does Waterproof Tape (Target, $2.64!) have to do with better boobs?

Oh, honey. This is only the oldest secret in the celebrity/beauty pageant contestant handbook!

June's InStyle magazine carried a reminder of the age-old breast-taping technique, recommending waterproof tape for those of you who need a little lift beneath your underwire-free bathing suits.

All you have to do is tape your breasts into position, starting at your underarm and creating cleavage with two or three pieces on each side. Pop on your bathing suit and ... VA VA VOOM!!

I have to admit, I've tried this technique before underneath a backless evening gown. I only wish I'd thought to use first aid tape. Instead, I used something far more painful ...

DUCT TAPE.

Yes.

DUCT TAPE.

You can read the full account of the experience here -- it also includes another embarrassing moment that, by the way, hasn't been repeated since that fateful night! I am far more mature now than I was four and a half years ago! SERIOUSLY!

Also, I wouldn't recommend using duct tape for this technique, because it hurt like heck to peel it off at the end of the night. First aid tape sounds far more appropriate.

And now that I've shared one of my dirtiest little secrets, it's your turn, ladies. (Sorry men, but if you have any experience with this, I really don't want to know about it.) Have you ever tried taping your breasts? Would you now that you know about the technique?
