experiment with several tapes

Kendall Polyskin II

and try various skin preps
Smith & Nephew IV prep

Tincture of Benzoine

make sure to let the skin preps dry throughly.

The set + tape is best applied after a shower with real clean skin. 
If sweat is a problem, prep the area first with a stick 
anti-perspirant and let dry -- wipe any excess off, then prep as 
normal with other materials.
