Featured in the PR book!
I'm using a lot of this stay tape, especially for shoulder seams, when sewing knits.
When I'm ready to sew the tape, I keep forgetting which is the wrong side. I sewed the tape once with the wrong side up and believe me, it's quite itchy next to the skin.
What I do now is brush the sides of the tape, one by one, against my lips. The lips skin is so sensitive that you feel immediately which is the smoother, silkier side.
Hope that helps!

I have not used stay tape. I didn't even know there was a wrong or right side. Thanks.

What brand are you using? I use Wright's twill tape and it is soft on both sides.

Spicegirl, I use this sheer nylon tape that you can see in the photo.

OK - I agree. I have not used it, but nylon does have little "pokies" that would be an irritant.
