I used vet wrap for a loooong time to keep tails up and it does work well, but you really really really have to stay on top of it. It has to be taken down at least weekly and put back up. Because you tie it up so much tighter and the vet wrap is so sticky, it breaks a lot of hairs (meaning a thinner tail). Plus it gets expensive because vet wrap isn't cheap and you go through a roll a week.
If you want to go with something more like that (a bobbed and wrapped tail), I'd use guard-tex. You can get it from Schneider's. Again, not nearly as cheap as a tail bag...
