Chest Help Required!
Okay, I wanted to cosplay Tira from Soul Calibur 3, but I'm aware that she's got quite a showy outfit, teamed with gravity defying boobs!

Does anyone have any ideas at all on how to make my chest stay up? Because it seems fairly obvious im gonna have to go bra-less... But im like, an E/F cup, and I've never done anything like this before, so I don't know whether I'd just need to change the costume slightly to allow for Bra wearing, or if theres anything else I can do to leave the costume as it is and somehow make my chest stay 'up'?

Any advice would be appreciated

Make it tight, and heavy duty tape yourself into it

I am a serious advocate of tit tape! You can position it to give you lift!

You could always ask Odangochan, she did Tira and somehow managed to keep them in!!!

I'm fortunate in that I have very full and yet perky boobs >_> I didn't end up having to "lift" them as they looked alright. I did consider it, though, and I probably would have used tape - I used carpet tape to keep me in, as it's really strong (much stronger than the body tape you get in lingerie shops) and didn't affect my skin, which is quite sensitive.

I'd suggest trying some sports tape (brandname to save your skin) beneath the tape you use to keep you "in", and use it a bit like a halter top - go from just under the nipple to over the shoulder and it should keep you lifted enough without showing. She has a cleavage hole but it's smallish so the tape shouldn't show there if you're careful about applying it.

I use 3m brand (medical grade toupee tape) You can find it on ebay for about £4 per roll

I feel odd posting here *looks around*

However, as a medic 3M sports take adheres to skin rather well and does NOT hurt too badly when you pull it off.

I have had to wrap up many common injuries with 3M Sports tape it works a treat for holding splints down to wrapping a twisted ankle. I have used sports tape on many cosplayer that were injured at various events I staff.

You can find it here under the brand name Sterotape (It’s the same as 3M just a different name)

This tape is good as well; it is the German version but breathes a little better.

Hey Fables, for LeBlanc I'm just using Duct Tape as since I'm of a larger chest size (E-F) I need something a bit hardcore and thick XD You should also tit-tape the costume to yourself when you wear it though, just to be certain ^^ I would say experiment with athletic tape (which I've heard can actually scar on one article, but a fellow here says otherwise so I can't comment), tit tape (which I don't know if it will be strong enough to hold you up hun, it can certainly hold one down though and is great for holding a costume down), and whatever other tapes you think are safe. Just 'cause I use duct tape, doesn't mean it's all that safe XD

Just make sure you cover up the sensitive bits before putting tape on your breasts as I reckon it could be very painful if you don't ><
