Cleavage-baring dresses often make headlines, but it also comes with a risk of having a nip slip.

Numerous celebrities have fallen victim to accidental exposure on the red carpet, but we can’t recall a time when Kim Kardashian accidentally flashed – other than that one time outside a hotel in Paris.

Today, she revealed her trick on preventing such accidents on her app and website.

It’s all about the gaffer’s tape. In a picture that she posted on Instagram, Kim was photographed with her boobs all taped up.

This technique doesn’t only ensure that her nips wouldn’t show, but also prevents her boobs from sagging. This is probably why she looks flawless in those plunging neckline dresses.

She said on her website: “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. It sticks the best!”

How effective is this trick? Let the photos do the talking.

We must admit it’s a clever trick, but this probably wouldn’t work as well if you have a lot of body hair, especially on your nipples. Because imagine what would happen if you yanked the tape out. Ouch. Well, at least you don’t have to go for a wax.
