What You'll Need:
- A high quality breast tape, such as the BSX Boob Tape
- Nipple covers (optional, for added coverage)

Prepping for the Perfect Tape
Step 1: Cleanse and Dry
Before getting started, ensure your skin is clean and dry. Any oils or lotions can affect the tape's adhesive quality. Read more in our guide on boob tape for sensitive skin.
Step 2: Nipple Covers (Optional)
If you're concerned about visibility, apply nipple covers first. These handy accessories provide extra protection and prevent any potential discomfort.
The Art of Taping
Now comes the exciting part: taping your breasts for that captivating deep V dress! The technique you choose will depend on your dress's design and your personal preferences.
Option A: The Classic Lift
Step 3: Measure and Cut
Based on our research, it's time to get strategic with your tape. Cut strips of tape, each about 12-15 inches long. You can always trim them later for a custom fit.
Step 4: Create Lift and Support
Starting from below your breast, gently lift and position it where you want. Hold it in place with one hand while adhering the tape with the other. Guide the tape diagonally upwards, providing support as you go. Remember, it's not just about sticking the tape on; it's about creating lift and shape. We cover exactly how to do this in greater detail in our article on how to tape breasts for cleavage.
Step 5: Repeat on the Other Side
For an even and symmetrical look, repeat the process on the other breast. Stand up straight and admire your lifted assets!
Option B: The Cleavage Enhancement
Step 3: Cut and Position
Just like in the classic lift, cut your tape strips and apply them underneath your breasts. However, this time angle the strips towards each other to create a cleavage-enhancing effect.
Step 4: Cross and Adhere
Cross the tape strips in the center, gently pulling your breasts towards each other for a fabulous cleavage. Adhere the tape securely in place. Read more about this in our guide on tape for breast cleavage. Also check out our guide on how to tape up boobs.
Customizing for Your Dress
Different dresses call for different taping techniques. We talk more about dress styles in our guide on boob tape for backless dress. However, let's explore a few popular dress styles and how to tackle them with breast tape!
The Plunge Dress:
For dresses with a deep V-neckline that goes beyond the realm of traditional bras, opt for the classic lift technique. This lifts and supports your breasts while allowing the dress's design to shine.
The One-Shoulder Wonder:
When sporting a one-shoulder dress, you'll want to focus on creating symmetry. Utilize the cleavage enhancement technique to ensure your assets are positioned and lifted evenly.
The Halter Neck Elegance:
Halter necklines can be both stylish and a little tricky. Use a combination of the classic lift and the cleavage enhancement to provide lift and support that complements the dress's design.
Ensuring a Secure Fit
Step 6: Double-Check and Adjust
After applying the tape, take a moment to assess the fit and comfort. Gently adjust the tape if needed to ensure a secure hold without causing discomfort.
Step 7: Move Around
Don't just stand still! Put your outfit to the test by moving, dancing, and even doing a quick mirror check to make sure everything stays in place.
Step 8: Removal with Care
After rocking your deep V dress, it's time to remove the boob tape. Take it slow and peel the tape off gently to avoid any unnecessary discomfort.
And there you have it—a crash course in how to use boob tape for that drop-dead gorgeous deep V dress! Remember, it's all about feeling confident, comfortable, and ready to take on the world. Whether you're flaunting a plunging neckline, a chic halter top, or a one-shoulder stunner, breast tape is your best friend for achieving that red-carpet-worthy look. So go ahead, tape it up, and strut your stuff with style!
