What are Nipple Pasties?
Free the Nipple! When most people think of nipple pasties, they probably think of celebrities like Miley Cyrus or Kendal Jenner, who have caught headlines for strutting their stuff while waring these rather daring garments.
For those unfamiliar, nipple pasties are those things that cover the nipples and not much else. Made from a small piece of fabric, nipple pasties are self-adhesive coverings that are applied over the nipples, typically worn with backless or low neckline outfits that would be ruined by bra straps.
Despite being around since the 1920s, nipple pasties have seen a recent surge in popularity thanks to their frequent use from popular celebrities, who often incorporate the pasties as a visible part of their outfit.
What are Nipple Pasties for?
Nipple pasties were originally designed for burlesque and cabaret performers in the 1920s, allowing them to wear provocative outfits with little covering while avoiding any issues with indecency laws in place at the time.
Now, they are used for all kinds of things, from functional parts of an outfit to outright fashion statements on their own.
As mentioned, the main function for modern nipple pasties is being able to wear outfits without a bra while keeping the nipple covered, such as a backless dress. Others like to incorporate the pasties as part of the outfit, such as wearing decorative coverings with a sheer top, with celebs like Kendall Jenner and Lady Gaga popularising this look.
Additionally, pasties have become a popular lingerie garment. They leave little to the imagination and the fact they show so much of the breasts means they are naturally erotic, with many people wearing them as a sexy outfit for fun in the bedroom.
Nipple Pasties Buying Guide
Buying nipple pasties for the first time is a daunting prospect, especially if you are unsure what to look for.
Firstly, never buy the cheapest nipple pasties you find!
These are cheap for a reason, with the adhesive generally being much lower quality, meaning they won’t stick as long as other pasties. This may not seem too much of an issue but can be a nightmare for occasions where you need to wear them for a while such as a wedding.
Reusable nipple pasties are available and claim to have a much longer adhesive. While many do retain their adhesiveness for some time, they are more expensive so bear this in mind. You may not even need reusable pasties either, as you might only need them for a one off!
Regardless, adhesive quality is something to keep an eye out for. It not only ensures they stay in place but usually influences how comfortable they are, which is important when wearing them for longer periods.
Material is another important consideration to make when buying nipple pasties. Like most lingerie, there are various materials available, so consider their intended use to choose something suitable.
For instance, if you want to go braless with an outfit, silicone nipple pasties are the best option, being similar in texture to skin and comfortable for long periods. Choose a colour that matches your skin tone too!
If you are wearing the pasties as part of a sexy lingerie / striptease for your partner, then consider more alluring materials like faux leather or lace. Consider the look you want to achieve and use this to help find suitable styles and materials!
Tips and Tricks
Make sure to test the pasties on an area of your skin before wearing them. You could be allergic to the adhesive or cover material, in which case you don’t want to be wearing them for several hours, so test them on a small patch of skin prior to use.
If you are using pasties just for a single outfit, don’t throw them out right away as you may have more uses for them than you originally thought. For example, you could wear them to the gym under a sports bra, with silicone pasties helping to prevent friction issues.
You can even wear pasties when visiting a sunbed. This lets you get more even coverage of tan without any tan lines from a bra or bikini, while many people use their pasties anytime they can’t be bothered wearing a bra but don’t want their nipples showing through their outfit.
Another important thing with reusable pasties is proper maintenance. Look at the instructions for how to properly apply and remove the pasties, while also the best storage methods to ensure the adhesive remains for as long as possible.
When it comes to applying the pasties, don’t use any moisturiser or lotion on your nipples, as it only makes it more difficult for the adhesive to stick. Make sure to clean around the area of application, as removing any oil and dirt ensures they stick better.
Finally, go for a shower or bath before removing the pasties. The best nipple pasties can be challenging to remove, so by giving yourself a soak first they become far easier to take off.
