Ward Off "Wardrobe Malfunctions" with Fashion Tape That Really Sticks
Our 5 favorite "nip-slip" solutions. Fashion faux pas are a thing of the past.
Have you been keeping some of your favorite pieces of clothing stashed away in the closet because you fear you'll have a scandalous situation when your top shifts and something slips out?

And you're not willing to take the risk.
But now you can nix the "nip slip" and solve related clothing catastrophes too with a fix from fashion tape, sometimes referred to as lingerie tape, cleavage tape, or dress tape too. Here are five brands that will correct your clothing to fit your body.
