It all started with this photo. My 11 year old self cringed at thought of people seeing my nipples peer through my knit dress. Fast forward 34 years and I am still way bothered when my nipple behavior is apparent to anyone looking my way.
For years, YEARS, I taped, bandaged and folded-up-tissue paper-in-the-bra trick’d my nipples, attempting to preempt the embarrassing moments ‘they’ decide to stand at (and attract!) attention. I find padded bras too bulky and distorting. Molded cup bras seem to have half an inch of air space between the cup and my actual boob. Silicone nipple covers, breast petals and pasties work best, but if I don’t sweat them off in this Charleston humidity, I dread later having to rip them off my oh so delicate skin.
Forever it seems, I’ve envisioned my ultimate “dream” bra: a lightweight, non-padded, nipple concealing situation with no semblance of pre-molded cups or underwire.
Well…I’m not really considered a “rule follower” and occasionally my noncompliance gets me into trouble (ask my husband). The mission of NDA is born of this same spirit: refusing to accept the way things are, and making it the way I want it to be! ❤️
