Silicone nipple covers are small adhesive covers that are worn on the breasts in place of a bra or cotton underwear. They’re designed to conceal the outline of the nipples in thin cotton clothing, sheer clothing, or any item made from a thin fabric.
Because silicone nipple covers are adhesive (sticky), they don’t require any support and don’t show any back or shoulder strap. This makes them perfect for use with backless and strapless dresses, where a traditional bra would result in unsightly, unwanted straps showing.
Nipple covers are usually used in place of an adhesive bra. Since they’re smaller and have less of an obvious profile, they’re ideal for concealing anything you don’t want to show in a thin, strapless or backless dress.
You can also use them for everyday wear, since many brands use a high quality adhesive that’s designed to last for 25+ wears.
Nipple covers are a popular product, and there are several brands currently available on the market. We looked at the most popular brands on BestNippleCovers.com to find out which silicone nipple covers offer the best mix of value for money and lasting quality:
Nippies by Bristol Six
Popular with celebrities, Nipples are what we would describe as a “premium” type of silicone nipple cover. They’re made from a hypo-allergenic silicone that’s more comfortable against the skin than the materials used for other brands, and have a long lasting adhesive that can last for 25+ uses.
Nippies come in three colors (Light, Medium and Dark) and two sizes, 3.25″ and 4.25″. At $25 per pair they are a little more expensive than other brands, but have a lot of positive reviews, making them a desirable and trusted product.
Komene Pasties aren’t quite as popular as Nippies on Amazon, but they’re still a popular and highly rated product. These pasties are available in two colors (Pink, Brown) and use a similar matte finish to Nippies, making them less likely to show through fabric than cheaper brands.
At $19-$25 depending on the current pricing, Komene Pasties are about the same price as Nippies and are a very similar product in general. The biggest disadvantage of these nipple covers are the lack of sizing options (Komene Pasties are free size, as opposed to Nippies, which are available in two sizes) and the smaller variety of color options.
DIMRS Nipple Covers
DIMRS are a little different to the two products listed above. Instead of using an adhesive, these silicone nipple covers are designed to stick to your skin using friction from clothing and the silicone material itself. If you want to wear these under a bra or tight top, DIMRS are a good choice.
