Q. What pastie size do I choose for my pasties?
Please check out the sizing chart here otherwise, if you add a note in the order with your size, we are happy to accommodate.
Q. Are your pasties true to size?Depending on the design, most pasties are true to the size.
For designs including teardrop rhinestones along the edge, this may add an additional 0.5 cm/0.2" to the base.
Q. What comes with my pasties order?In the box, you receive:
- Your pasties
- A bag of spare rhinestones (in case you need to repair them in future)
- 2 pieces of pastie tape (to adhere the pasties to your body)
- Free Boom-Boom Pasties/Chica Boom-Boom stickers to show off our brand
- A heartfelt thank you note, handwritten by Chica Boom-Boom (owner of Boom-Boom Pasties)
Q. How do I stick the pasties to my body?
You will need to purchase an adhesive to place on the back of the pastie to adhere to your body. We recommend doing a skin reaction test with your chosen adhesive before trialing it with your pasties.
We recommend using pastie tape (which is also sold as wig tape) for any first-time pastie user. These can be purchased from burlesque dance studios or online stores. We use Walker Tape's Super Stick in Contour C as our sample tape.
Other recommendations for adhesives are:
- Spirit gum and spirit gum remover
- Double-sided carpet tape from hardware stores
- Double-sided tape from pharmacies/beauty stores
Q. Do you sell adhesives for pasties?
Boom-Boom Pasties provides a sample of pastie tape with your order however we currently don't have a supplier to provide this as a product on our website.
