How long does kinesiology tape last on the skin?

There are big differences in how long Kinesio tape can be worn depending on the manufacturer. In general, you can establish a connection between price and wearing time to a certain extent by distinguishing between cheap kinesiotapes (price under 10€) and premium kinesiotapes (price over 10€) . With the cheap kinesio tapes you can expect a wearing time of between 1-3 days, with the premium tapes you can expect a wearing time of between 3 and 5 days. Only very few kinesio tapes allow you to wear them for up to 7 days.
