Popular breast tape brand Booby Tape has been hit with a series of complaints from women who claim that the product has left them with ‘tears and scarred skin’. Watch the video here:
Taking to the likes of TikTok and Twitter, users have accused the product, hailed as a ‘breast lift in a box’, of causing a multitude of skin-related complaints including rashes, blisters, chemical burns, bleeding, scabs and torn skin on their delicate breast tissue.
One young woman explained how the fashion tape supposedly caused her to have permanent breast scarring and received over 500 comments from onlookers who were also subjected to similar side effects.
In a statement provided to Daily Mail Australia, Booby Tape explained that the product warns that it is suitable for everyone and that users should follow “our removal steps” to avoid encountering skin injuries.
A representative of the brand also said that they endeavour to reply to concerns in a timely way: “The claims are not new,' the representative said, but the founders “found non-responsiveness claims upsetting” as they think “they are very responsive”.
Elsewhere on the video-sharing platform, another woman was visibly upset as she recalled how Booby Tape allegedly tore a layer of skin off her nipple, while another young woman had a visible rash on her chest which she claimed was also caused by the brand.
Others have claimed that the packaging does not include a sufficient guide on safely removing the tap without removing ‘a layer of skin’.
Booby Tape is billed as 'hypoallergenic' and 'painless to remove', but women have claimed the opposite.
Some of those affected by the product have attempted to contact the brand about the seemingly painful side effects, but have not been met with an adequate response from customer service. Meanwhile, others have had their comments on the brand’s social media platforms removed within seconds of posting.
