What is GeckTeck™?

GeckTeck™ is a patent-pending lining created by Anthony Roy, a doctorate in mechanical engineering, who modified a substance from his work with robotics to help his wife's strapless bra stay in place. The lining keeps the bra securely in place and can be easily peeled off by the wearer without causing discomfort. GeckTeck™ lining is also residue-free, can be reused thousands of times, and even works in moisture.       

 

What does this mean for you?

No more overly tight bands cutting into your back, ribs and under bust just to keep your strapless bra in place. No more irritation and rash. No more pulling or ripping of skin to remove tape or other adhesives that harmfully stick to your skin. No more tugging, pulling, squirming and adjusting strapless bras. With the GeckTeck™ lining, your Kellie K Apparel strapless bra will stay in place and be supportive. Even for larger cup sizes.

 

How does it work?

GeckTeck™ is a biocompatible, silicone-based material that achieves superior frictional adhesion using the same physical properties geckos use to cling to almost any surface. The material is designed so that it makes intimate contact with even the most sensitive skin without irritation. Such close contact creates an intermolecular attraction known as Van Der Waals forces that, on a micro level, keeps the lining close to the skin while still being comfortable to wear.
