Buy absolutely the top quality, clear packing tape and you won't have issues with it. Also don't ask it to do things it can'd well like, adhere to inside curveswithout stress relieving it.

scotch long-lasting storage tape works great and almost never backs off as long as you apply it cleanly.... smells kinda funny though... like GWS glue

Give the foam a light spray of 3M Super77 Spray Adhesive before applying the tape. Apply the tape and burnish with your hands.
