the secret to having a big bust and going braless

we’re getting pretty real here today on alissandrab.

many of you messaged me, Snapchatted me, emailed me, and commented on my photos from this past weekend, where I wore a very low-back dress. here are some screenshots from a video Lu took:

 

and as you can see, it looks like my boobs have some sort of support (they’re not sweeping the dust off the floor, if you know what I mean!)

now, when I got married, I wore a low back dress, but I had a custom fitted bustier. while perfect for that occasion, I’m not going to be doing this every time I want to throw on a backless or low-back top or dress!

so… what do I do? how do I get away with low backs? and for your reference, I’m a 34DD for the most part.

my secret is this: BOOB TAPE.

yes. I tape my boobs! I recently discovered this when I was panicking to find a low-back bra for the wedding I was pictured in above. the dress kinda showed everything, so I didn’t want lines from a bustier/body suit.

after some Googling, I discovered Kim Kardashian’s boob taping and soon after, a more accessible, easier version of that.

the taping I do is subtle: it’s a little adhesive tape that is placed above your nipple and then you simply pull the tape up and secure it. it’s super easy, takes 5 seconds, and then – your ladies are in place and lifted. the boob tape I bought comes with easy instructions and I purchased it in DD Cup +. you can buy it here on Amazon (I literally bought 10 packets and can’t wait to use them all summer long!)

now let me tell you. I danced the night away in 85 degree weather and my boobs did not move. the tape didn’t come off and it wasn’t uncomfortable – I didn’t notice it the entire evening. I taped my boobs at about 12pm and I didn’t take the tape off until the party ended, around 1:30am. THAT’S OVER 12 HOURS! as for taking the tape off, it doesn’t hurt much more than ripping off a Band-Aid.

there’s one caveat: the boob tape I purchased doesn’t cover your nipples, so if you’re wearing something sheer, you may want to also purchase nipple covers. my dress came with slight pads that prevented my nips from peeking through. I recommend these, I’ve used them before for various reasons and they’re great.

so yea. that’s my big secret! it has seriously changed my life – I could never wear low-back anything, open-back anything. even racerback shirts were hard to wear. now, I’ve been buying backless dresses left and right!

super easy lunch idea, made (almost) entirely from the freezer and 100% from @wholefoodsmarket, so next time you go there to shop, grab the following items and make this Teriyaki Tofu and Pepper Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry👇🏼👇🏼

~ frozen riced cauliflower, stir fry style⁣
~ frozen three pepper blend (sliced bell peppers)⁣
~ organic teriyaki sauce⁣
~ @wildwoodfoods teriyaki baked tofu⁣
~ for garnish: white sesame seeds, red pepper flakes⁣

heat a tablespoon of neutral oil in a medium skillet. add the bag of riced cauliflower and sauté until softened to your preference (about 5 minutes for rice-like, IMHO.) set the cauliflower aside in a bowl. add a couple handfuls of bell pepper strips and half the package of tofu, cubed. pour over some teriyaki sauce (I use about 1/3 cup), stir, and let cook until peppers are totally soft, another 3 to 5 minutes. top the riced cauliflower with the teriyaki tofu and peppers. garnish with sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. enjoy!⁣ 🥡

probably my favorite part of parenthood is seeing life through my children’s’ eyes. everything is new and they live a life of exciting discovery. and nothing beats the merriment of Christmastime! 🎄🎅🏻 luca and roma had a blast ice skating today in NYC - luca got the hang of it quickly and he loved pushing roma on the little plastic bear seats they had at @rinkatbrookfieldplacenyc. ⛸❄️ the twins were angels and slept the whole time, so I could be present with my older kids. 👼🏻👼🏻

and we’re building a holiday bucket list calendar, what should we add to it (aside from meeting santa? 😉)

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you
