View Full Version : Giving "The Girls" A Boost...

Shallow Alert: :cool:

OK, ladies (and gents, if you're so inclined...)

I have a pool party for hubby's work this weekend, and my bathing suit would look MUCH hotter if The Girls were a tad...fuller. So, I know that Victoria's Secret does a fabby job of stacking those girls' racks, and I believe they do this with tape.

Anyone know what kind of tape this is (is it waterproof?!?), where I can find it, and the proper technique to use it?

Help increase my hotness quotient. Puh-leeze! :e2drown:

I believe your Girls should take a trip to the mall for a new bathing suit. It's amazing what they can do these days with Spandex.

Although I feel a trifle strange posting on this thread, just remember, if you do go the "tape" method to keep it hidden.

If you think your girls are lacking, what about emphasising another part of your bod? Or you could just get pissed and flash your boobs at everyone. ;)

Sorry -- I'm laughing, but not at you. What I would give to think that tape would help these things!!!! A couple rolls of duct tape, some scafolding, perhaps a couple of those heavy duty construction cranes -- once the nipples hit the floor before the knees when you go to church, you know at least they are beyond redemption!!! Take good care of them while you can, because once they've really fallen, they can't get back up!!!

I've often considered paying someone to walk around behind me and hold them in position.

Barring that, I agree with Caro - there are bathing suits with built in . . . uplift.

OK, the problem is NOT sagginess...for that, I am very, very grateful. They just need a little, I dunno, breadth? Is breadth the right word? :Shrug:

Oy.

You're lookin' for cleavage, then? They do make half-cup thingies and even bathing suit inserts that lift and seperate.

Plastic surgery helps. You can get it done tastefully without looking like a cheap stripper. But then that won't help for this weekend. Padded swimsuit top!

Go to the 'Vicky's Secret' store and buy one of their 'Wonder' Swimsuits...or just the top. I bet you 3,5000 stickey chocolate calories that they're having an end of season sale.

Also...my favorite place is www.newport-news.com (http://www.newport-news.com)

They have some 'enhancing' swim separates..and they have a sale going on now, too.

I gave my much older sister a birthday card one year -- there was a hula dancer on the front and it said "may your coconuts never hang lower than your grass skirt'. -- really funny then, not so much now!!!

I got no help for you, nothing -- in my wildest dreams...! I can't even suggest a Google search line that won't run amok on you.

Although there is something to be said for never having to polish your shoes again!!!

Yeah, let's just say when I score that book deal some day, you might be seeing me on an episode of Dr. 90210 (I'll be the one trying to put the moves on Dr. Rey!) :e2kissy:

Until then, where can I find these insert thingies???

Salem

Most swimwear shops will have inserts.

The half cup thingies do tape to your skin, much like pasties. I've seen them in JC Penney, and I'm sure other places have them. Look in the lingerie section.

Yep, you just need a new bathing suit top. Get a top with a bit of padding, if you go with a bikini top it's even better. They make some that do absolute wonders for the girls. Seriously. :)

Cooper's Ligaments are a culprit, hence the term "Cooper's droop."

How about Saran Wrap?

Pff, I gave up on giving my girls a boost. It would only end in humiliation for me, I am sure of it. The sticky would unstick and the tape, insert, or whatever would pop out and then I'd be embarrassed forever.

I've never had a big chest and, without surgery, I never will. I'm not going to turn any heads in a bathing suit, that's for sure, but my hubby seems very happy with the way I look in (and out) of a bathing suit, so I'm content.

I know how you feel though, it'd be nice just to have a bit extra.

RLB

It seems like there'd be tons of swimsuits on clearance now. Invest in a nice one that has a good padded top.

I have the complete opposite problem. I always tear those pads out in frustration, and it's still a miracle if I can find a bathing suit that covers properly and doesn't make me look like a floozy.

Swimsuits suck.

I say avoid taping, you're gonna be in the water.

Surely the temp of the water will be cool enough to plump you up enough to not need tape. Just buy a nice two piece and tighten it up around your neck to lift those puppies where they need to be. Good Luck!

Absolutely. I'm completely envious of women who get to buy those cutesy, barely-there bras. Or who have the option of going braless in those shelf-bra tank tops.

You just find us a good surgeon, and I'll show up.

Do you have Ross or Marshalls where you live? They have a huge selection of swimsuits. Try them.

You could always buy a bathing suit top that's a size (or two) too small. Illusion can be our friend, too.

Well, yes, it has to do with breasts, but not about swim suits. I thought we were talking about swim suits.

And duct tape. But mostly swim suits.

I see your point, though I for one would like to see this thread evolve into a place where all the women of AW can gather to complain/vent/boast/seek advice for any breast-related issue.

Go on, rub it in!!!!!

Okay, I had a bit of time on my hands. I tried packing tape, electrical tape, duct tape -- I am a 3M disaster!!!! It's gonna take me a year to find all that tape now (and I think I may have done myself an injury). I wonder if they make hoop earrings that are big enough?

Okay, since we are on a boob thing, I have to share about what my kids got me for my birthday!!!

I have a talking Puss n Boots. Every time you move, he talks to you with Antonio Banderas' voice. (Seriously, I took him to bed last night, and when DH complained, I told him it was his dream come true -- a threesome)

He says "Would you like to touch my boots? Go ahead. Touch them. I will allow it. (pauses) Nice, aren't they? They were cobbled by elves."

The problem, with the accent and the lousy speaker in these toys, it sounds like he says boobs.

He did, however, whistle at me when I went to get dressed this morning. * SIGH* I think I'm in love!!!!

I have to agree with the others, that a bathing suit with a built in push up thing is your best bet in this case, but for future reference, you can find boobie tape in Danskin/lingerie places (works well, and VERY necessary for some of us with the plunging halter necklines so popular these days).

Have fun at the pool party :)

Celia Cyanide

If you do use duct tape, stick it to a towel first. It makes it less sticky, and it will not hurt your skin when you take it off.

Ziljon

Actually, just get pregnant and they'll stand at attention.

Of course, after a couple of babies, it's more like they slouch at half-mast.

RitrChick
08-25-2007, 07:28 AM
All set with the baby thing. Been there, done that (twice), thankful The Girls are still at attention! ;)

I like the duct tape tip, but boobie tape also sounds like a doable plan. Or inserts (but not the cutlets suggested on the other page--Gah!)
