What are Nipple Covers?

Nipple covers are thin pieces of silicone, fabric, or foam designed to cover the nipple area. They come with an adhesive backing that sticks to the skin, providing modest coverage.

Why Use Nipple Covers?

Nipple covers are perfect for outfits where a traditional bra is not an option. They offer a seamless, invisible solution under backless dresses, tight tops, swimsuits, or even everyday wear.

There are two common types of nipple covers on the market--silicone and satin. These serve different purposes, depending on the occasion--silicone nipple covers are reusable whereas satin nipple covers can only be worn once.

Clean Them Properly:

The first step in prolonging the stickiness of your nipple covers is cleaning them correctly after each use. Gently wash them with warm water and mild hand soap. Avoid using any harsh detergents, as they can damage the adhesive.

Let Them Air Dry:

Once cleaned, let the nipple covers air dry. Never use a towel or any heat source to speed up the process, as it can damage the adhesive.

Store Them Correctly:
