Right at the start I only wore tape that was nude so it would blend into my skin so no one would notice as I felt very insecure, but over time I've branched out and got some brighter colours, only because they look nicer. I still fell in public that people stare especially when you have it on multiple joints and to be honest I don't think everyones aware you are wearing it for a medical reason. Like it does look a bit weird but without it I would be in more pain than I already am.
Tape honestly does wreck my skin especially on my wrist and hand area, so if I didn't need to wear it, I wouldn't, as it hurts! But the benefits it provides out weigh the negatives and honestly it helps me so much.
