A Bra that Conceals Nipple Jewelry

I have great news! The Elli Bralette hides nipple piercings!

Recently, my friend (Maggie) had a few couples over for dinner.  As the women chatted around the kitchen island (who knows where the guys were), Maggie started bragging to one of her “younger” guests (Sarah, late 20’s) about the Elli Bralette. Maggie, a dear friend and devout NDA customer (an augmented 34DD, wears our L size), promotes the bralette to anyone who will listen – bless her. Of course, I happily joined the conversation to further explain the bra: the permanent concealing petals built into each cup, the fact it’s seamless, soft, stretchy, incredibly comfortable, etc., etc.

As Maggie and I waxed on about the how well the bra conceals our nips, Sarah say quietly listening to us. Turns out, as we later found out, she was pondering whether the bralette would also conceal her nipple jewelry. Maggie and I are older than Sarah (read: possibly uncool) so she was reluctant to mention her piercings.

Finally, she came out with it  -  tells us her nipples are pierced in a “I don’t think this bra will work for me” kind-of way.  Assuming I would agree with her, she was surprised by my reaction.  My entire face lit up. Unable to contain my enthusiasm (of course the Elli Bralette hides nipple piercings), I demanded, “You have GOT to try this bra on right now!”.

Nipple Jewelry - The Back Story

Years ago, a “cut and sew” prototype's proved itself to conceal nipple piercings. Specifically testing it for this purpose, we tried it on female fit models with barbell piercings. The models were surprised by how well a our lightweight, non-padded bralette was able to hide their nipple jewelry.  

Today, many evolutions of the bralette later, it's a totally different animal - way better than cut and sew predecessors.  The Elli Bralette, it's called, is now made on a seamless knit machine.  It's knitted in one continuous piece using an insanely soft blend Nylon / Spandex yarn.

The concealing petal has evolved in flexibility as well.  It's now a system of layered fabrics, varying in strength, thickness and diameter so that it's both strong and discreet. 

Why the pivot?  Cut and sew bras are made from several pieces of fabric that are "sewn" together, creating multiple seams. Since comfort was at the forefront of our design intention, we wanted to pair down the number of seams significantly (to zero), and scrap the back clasp altogether.  The concealing petal needed tweaking because the thin fabric of the nylon knit bra is less forgiving. We needed it to do it's job but not be so obvious about it. 

So yes, the Elli is completely seamless (no back clasp) and it feels like an absolute dream. Thanks to the unpadded, wire-free nature of the bralette, there's not one thing rigid or constricting about it.  Our customers report that it's the only bra they'll wear.

The Nipple Jewelry Test

We'd yet to test the seamless version of the Elli Bralette on a woman with nipple piercings. Thankfully, Sarah (34C) was up for the challenge. Borrowing Maggie's large bralette to try, the three of us huddled in the master bathroom for the “big reveal”.  

Sarah quickly pulled the bra on, looked in the mirror, back at us, the mirror, then back at us.  With tears in her eyes she said, "I can't believe it."

Since having her nipples pierced, she's resorted to bulky, padded bras when wanting to conceal it. She adores her nipple jewelry - slender silver bars capped with turquoise beading - and is certainly not ashamed of it.  Sometimes though, she wants to keep it on the DL and with the Elli Bralette, she has an ideal solution for that. It creates the smooth appearance she's looking for, hiding the hardware underneath that she'd spent years trying to achieve with uncomfortable, padded and molded cupped bras. 

“And, it’s soooo comfortable!", Sarah added. She was trying to wrap her head around the fact a non-padded bralette could perform this way. It literally made her piercings disappear.  She was overwhelmed with gratitude for this accidental bra discovery and the emotion was palpable, all around.

Non Disclosure Apparel was founded specifically to create a lightweight, non-padded, nipple concealing bralette. Not only has Elli Bralette turned out to be the most comfortable bra you'll ever put on your body, it's also proven to completely keep nipple piercings under wraps!  Win-win!
