We’re answering all the questions below, so you can make going braless glamorous no matter the occasion.
Are Nippies Basics Waterproof?
Nippies Basics are water and sweat proof.
What Nippies Basics size is right for me?
Nippies Basics come in different colors, shapes, and sizes, from caramel heart pasties to crème cross nipple covers. Coming in all bra sizes, from small (A-C cups) and large (D+ cups), you’ll be sure to find the perfect fit.
How do I properly care for and store my Nippies Basics?
The specially formulated adhesive is easy to clean with gentle soap and water. Once dry, the self-adhesive properties are restored! Stored in a chic and discreet carrying case, our nipple covers stay clean and protected. Perfect to keep in your purse, handbag, or suitcase for on-the-go outfit changes.
Are Nippies Basics reusable?
Nippies Basics are reusable! These fashion nipple covers are reusable for as long as they last and will vary from person to person and situation to situation. They work by using a silicone, waterproof adhesive to hold them in place on your nipples. So, technically, they’re reusable as long as the silicone adhesive stays sticky.
How do I make the adhesive of my nipple cover sticky again?
Rinse away the oils with gentle soap and water to rejuvenate the adhesive. Place the nipple pads facing up and let them dry for 20 minutes. The next time you use them, they’ll be good as new!
How many times can you use reusable nipple covers?
While Nippies Basics are generally disposable, Nippies Skin are washable and reusable up to 30 times.
How long do Nippies Basics last?
Nippies are reusable, but there are a couple things you need to do to keep them good as new.
- Never apply lotions, perfumes, oils, or other products to the area where you are wearing the pastie bras. The glue won’t stick on oily or sweaty skin and will be less strong.
- Take off the reusable nipple covers and wash the area well with soap and water before you re-apply them.
- Put your Nippies on clean, dry skin. If you’re taking a shower, wait until you’re in a dry environment before putting them on.
How do you apply Nippies Basics?
Applying Nippies Basics is simple and easy, but the first time you do it, it can be a little intimidating.
- Clean and dry your skin. Lotions and oils will prevent Nippies Skin from sticking.
- Press on firmly to release any air underneath to form suction.
- Hold for a few seconds as body heat will help keep Nippies Skin in place.
Do Nippies Basics cause skin irritation?
While our nipple cover stickers usually don’t tend to cause any irritation, we recommended that you always test your new pair of Nippies before you wear them out in public, especially if you have sensitive skin. To test them out, try wearing them around the house for a couple hours and see how you feel!
To avoid skin irritation, don’t wear them for longer than 6 hours at a time. We only use hypoallergenic medical materials, but anyone can be sensitive to even the best materials. If you have adhesive sensitivity, you may develop irritation.
DO NOT USE this product on sensitive skin, open cuts, skin disorders, sun-burned skin, or depigmentation. And of course, discontinue use if you experience irritation!
Can I apply skincare products before wearing my Nippies Basics?
We recommend that you avoid applying rich creams, balms, lotions, and oils before putting on your Nippies. If you do apply skincare products, you should wait until the cream has been absorbed by your skin before applying your sticky nipple covers.
What type of clothing can I wear with my Nippies Basics?
Whether you’re wearing sheer clothing, summer whites, or a slinky backless dress, our nipple cover stickers instantly solve all your outfit dilemmas. Our boob covers can even be worn under swimwear, lingerie, unpadded bras, and bandeau dresses, making for great strapless bra alternatives. You’ll never have to sacrifice your trendy style for comfort again!
Can I wear Nippies Basics while I exercise?
Nippies Basics are designed to be worn underneath your clothes, without the worry of them falling off or getting in the way of your day-to-day. You can wear them while you exercise, dance, rave, run, go shopping, or even to the office! Whether you’re going out to a party or to the gym, our boob petals are designed to make you feel cool, confident and effortlessly sexy.
Can I wear Nippies Basics under swimsuits?
Absolutely! Nipple bras can be worn under swimsuits, summer dresses, and even topless! If you’re a fan of the topless tan, you’ll need a nice pair of Nippies to give your nipples that extra layer of protection when in the sun, or when using bronzers and sun beds.
