Tinsel for Your Ta-tas: A Nippies Review

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.

The glow from last weekend’s burlesque show is just starting to fade, but before I put away my afro wig and hang up my booty shorts, I want to review my choice of nipple covers for that evening… Nippies by Bristol6.

Many people have worn nipple covers, and almost everyone has heard of pasties, but Nippies is the best of both of those worlds. It combines the adhesive properties of a regular nipple concealer with the sparkly, jewel-like qualities of a pastie.

Bristol6 was kind enough to send me a sample of the sparkly gold stars pictured above, and they were absolutely amazing. Not only did they completely cover my nipples, they also stayed in place through two sexy, sweat-inducing burlesque routines. I wore my Nippies for a total of six hours, and they didn’t move, budge, or slip until I peeled them off at night. Several of my fellow classmates complimented me on having such a nice alternative to traditional pasties.

There’s only one downside, but it’s a pretty significant one… you can only wear them once. At around $7.50/pair, they don’t quite qualify as an everyday extravagance. However, if you fan Nippies on Facebook, they’ll take 15% off your order and give you free shipping until May 1st. Hmmm… maybe I should pick up another pair or two.

Disclaimer: Though I received my pair of Nippies free of charge, every opinion presented in this review is my own and is not influenced by Nippies, Bristol6, or any entities associated with them. I just think they rock!  ;-)

    You know, having seen them in action, I have to say that your nipple bling made a big impression. It was an important part of your entire costume and actually very distinctive and memorable. From the audience they were very shimmery and sheer and looked almost painted on. Kudos to the Nippies people.

    I have been wanting to try them for a while now but haven't really gotten around to it…mostly because of the price. $7.50 isn't that bad for a special occasion but if they're one-use, I don't think I would be happy trotting them out all the time!
