You don't have to add any padding if you don't want to. I have a single layer of Tressostar on quite a few bikes, and I rather like both the look and the feel. I think I actually prefer the thin tape...

I loved the look and feel of cloth tape, when it was new and clean. It held up remarkably well, including two Eroica crashes (darned toe clips!) but as time and rides went by, it got really scruffy...
