This review is from: Nippies Skin Reusable Thin Matte Silicone Nipple Cover Pasties ADHESIVE- LIGHT (Apparel)
I LOVE these! They are comfortable and easy. These have no bump, even with thin shirts. I'm a 34B and go braless as much as I can. I live in SoCal so the weather permits that most of the year. I tried the floral shaped ones Amazon sells (not Nippies brand) and they did have a noticeable bump. These Nippies I wear all day and no problem. I've even forgotten to take them off some nights and no irritation. This summer I spent a week in Phoenix (where you sweat the second you step outside) and wore them almost everyday with no problems. I also tried a backless silicone bra which irritates my skin after an hour. I was reviewing the backless bra and thought I'd write a review about this one since it is my favorite.
I was surprised when I went through my Amazon orders to see when I bought these... September 18, 2009! Almost a year I've had them! The same pair! And I wear them at least once a week, during the summer probably 3-4 times a week. They have no tears, blemishes or discoloration, still look brand new and the sticky comes back after every rinse. They are easy to take care of. I rinse them with cool water at night before I go to bed, shake the water off and let them air dry. Only irritation I have is that at night when they are drying my cat sometimes gets on the counter and I have to pick off a hair or two from the adhesive. A couple times I got lazy and didn't rinse them after taking them off. After a few wears, they lost some of the adhesive, I noticed the thinnest part on the outside wouldn't stick as good, but after a rinse, the sticky was back. I still have the hard plastic backing they came in and keep them stored on those, and in the box it comes with. The box is convenient for traveling too. And on long plane rides, I ALWAYS wear them. - so comfortable. I've never tried wearing them swimming. But have had them on through yoga and workouts, and they held up, so I'd assume they'd stay put in water too. I'm really trying to think of any cons to say about these, but can't. I love them. I'll never waste my money to try out others. - These are the best!
*UPDATE* June 2011 I just 'retired' my last ones, they were losing the sticky more quickly, and ordered new ones. The new ones are thinner than my a year and a half ago. I like the change! They still cover up the way they should and don't show even under thin tops. Still come in the travel box. Very happy with these!
