Picture this: youre the sexiest gal on the dance floor, bumping and grinding in that slinky dress. An equally sexy guy comes up to you and youre on cloud nine. Hes looking at your chest. You are offended. You look as your test as well. A thought comes to mind. You fall from the clouds and land flat on your butt. Yes, your nipples are showing. And the world can see.
Many of us have gone walking around with our headlights on. Embarrassing is putting it lightly. Some outfits can be troublesome even with the right bra. When a dress or a top is tight or sheer, your nipples do tend to show through. Even the best of bras succumb to extreme cases of headlights.
How do you turn off those stubborn headlights from showing?
Simple: nipple covers.
The name says it all. These are usually silicon or cotton adhesives which stick to the skin without any other support. These nipple covers echo the bra burnings of the 60s. But then again, going bra-less back then was a political statement, fashion was secondary. Times have changed, and today going au naturel is all about fashion.
There are two types of nipple covers; the reusable and the disposable ones.
Reusable nipple covers vary from the adhesive to the non-adhesive kinds. Lets tackle the non-adhesive kinds first.
Foam nipple covers, can give women with sensitive skin the nipple coverage that they need as these dont contain any kind of adhesive. However, these need some adjusting after some time as these tend to ride up the bra. This can result to an uncomfortable day or a self-conscious night. The foam nipple covers usually work well with full figured women and provide the coverage they need.
Another type of reusable nipple covers are Bra Discs. These foam discs are 2.8 inches in diameter with curving slips around the edges are made of non latex resin and are worn under the bra. What makes this unique is that the curving slips help keep it in place. Its almost unnoticeable under the sheerest of clothing. But even with the curving slips, it can slide up on your bra. Another thing working against it is that it can feel like a rubber glove in your bra after a while. Nevertheless, the Bra Discs nipple cover works well to hide those unsightly protrusions.
Another variant of reusable nipple covers are the silicon ones. Using these have an advantage over the foam ones as they are softer and follow the contour of your body better. Unlike most reusable nipple covers, silicon nipple covers have adhesives to ensure they stay in place. Now, theres no need for bras when using these. So secure, these can be used under swimwear. A point against: these are washable and the adhesive on them may wear off, but those looking for coverage and hassle-free nipple covers will be happy with them.
Fashion Forms Extreme Silicon Breast Petals has it all. It has the coverage and molding ability of petal shaped nipple covers and its reusable too! And because its made of silicon, it molds onto your breasts perfectly. Its only disadvantage? The adhesive may have ill effects on women with sensitive skin.
