The Best Nipple Covers Aren’t Always Silicone or Foam
Mini rant: There's one gripe we've always had with nipple covers: it's just one more thing to think about. Washing them, drying them, finding them. Whether it's a busy morning before work or time spent getting ready to go out, simplicity is key and nipple covers sometimes don't fit the bill. So why do so many women put up with them and what is the best nipple coverage option?
The answer is simple: no show nipple covers have always been the best foam-free option to hide hard nipples - that is, until the Elli Bralette of course.
Let's Back up For a Minute - What Are Nipple Covers?
Having to actually think about how to hide hard nipples is a step we don't care for - but it's better than later feeling self-conscious about perky nips, right? Usually made of silicone, nipple covers are a great option for women who hate wearing foam padded bras, plus they're discreet and can be worn underneath the thinnest tops without being detected.
As far as the best nipple covers, silicone nipple covers are the way to go if you don't want a bra strap to show. They're reusable, come in many skin tone options, and some are even sweat proof. Nipple stick-ons, or pasties, are also available for coverage, sometimes coming in 'fun' options like heart shapes or glittery designs. This type of pastie usually has an adhesive backing (think: Band-Aid), is less discreet but still effective and typically suitable for one use, eliminating the need to wash them after every wear.
Before the Elli Bralette, we tried them all. And while we loved the idea of nipple covers instead of a bra, we still thought: This can be better. What if there was a nipple cover that you didn't need to put on before your bra? What if the nipple cover was built into the bra itself?
And that's how the idea for the Elli Bralette was born.
What's the Best Way to Wear Nipple Covers?
Thanks to the Elli Bralette, you don't need an adhesive nipple cover every single day. Now, the perfect nipple covers for your outfit depends on your plans. The Elli Bralette is so good in so many situations - work, the gym, lounging, errands, girl's nights, dinner parties, you name it. But there are a few instances where even we still occasionally wear silicone nipple covers: thin, unlined bathing suits; halter tops; and strapless dresses.
Honestly, the best way to wear nipple covers is simple. Wear what feels comfortable and easy. For those occasions, you just can't layer with your Elli Bralette, silicone nipple covers are likely your best bet. But if you're looking for an option that doesn't need to be washed after every wear, won't slide off once you start to sweat, and doesn't require adhesive to stay on, the Elli Bralette is your perfect pairing for comfort, coverage and style.
