The Kardashians are not generally known for subtlety, from their family to their fashion and everything in between. Case in point: Though Kim wasn’t at the Grammys and so didn’t get a chance to walk the red carpet on Sunday, she did relive her favorite Grammys looks of her own, and tweeted a link with the caption “MY RED CARPET CLEAVAGE SECRET.” See? Not so subtle. If you’ve thought in the past that Kim’s cleavage must be either an evolutionary miracle or a feat of modern engineering (just us? Okay.), you’ll love how simple — and simple to do — it is. The secret? Gaffer tape.


“I’ve used everything from duct tape to packing tape to masking tape and I think that the best I found is gaffer’s tape,” Kim wrote on her website. “It sticks the best!” Gaffer’s tape is made of fabric, not vinyl, and its rubber-based adhesive is usually more resistant to heat. It’s most often used on TV and movie sets. The more you know!

Though the above picture looks more like masking tape than gaffer, we’ll take her word for it — and anyway, it seems to be doing its job too. Oh, and the one other piece of advice Kim gave about using gaffer tape to hold up your boobs? “Just brace yourself for when it’s time to take it off LOL.”
