My Friend, Topstick.


As a costumer of TV and Film, Topstick (or fashion tape) is my right-hand man.  This double-sided tape will keep a plunging neck-line in place, tame an errant bra strap, or keep a puckering blouse at bay, but it is not your run-of-the-mill adhesive.  Originally invented to adhere a man’s hairpiece, Topstick is hypo-allergenic, waterproof, and does not separate when removed. Topstick is the red-carpet secret of any buxom (or not so endowed) hollywood starlet. Ali Larter at a movie premiere There are other versions of the original Topstick, Hollywood Fashion Tape being the foremost, but I always go back to my old friend, Topstick.  Unassuming, in its plain yellow box, it is strong, sticky and cheap. I purchase mine at Costume Rentals Corporation in North Hollywood, Ca, but you can order yours online at Manhattan Wardrobe Supply. From 1/2″ to 1″ to curves, they carry any type of Topstick your skimpiest dress could beg for. At $3.75 for a box of 50 strips, this is insurance you will want to purchase.
