Intrigued by nipplets, also known as nipple pasties or covers? This often-overlooked lingerie accessory is perfect for all sorts of special occasions. From boudoir photo shoots to burlesque performances, they preserve your modesty and look fabulous doing it.
I’m not talking about those basic, skin-toned stickers designed to smooth and hide your nipples beneath clothing. No, the nipplets in today’s post are made to be seen. There’s everything from 3D flowers to fluffy marabou puffs!
Nipple pasties are available to suit all budgets. But of course, it’s at the luxury level where you’ll see the most exciting designs. I’ve rounded up 20 high-end options that begin at around $25, and go up to over $250. Bear in mind that unlike some low-cost nipple covers, these are all reusable. Care for them well, and you could be wearing them again and again for years to come.
Wondering exactly how you’d wear them? Nipplets look great paired with cupless or quarter-cup bras, or as a surprise reveal underneath a regular one. They’re a perfect pairing for lingerie harnesses too. Or, wear them alone from the start. These designs are undoubtedly striking enough for it!
From leather to latex, and from crystals to ceramic, here are 20 luxurious nipple pasties that don’t feature the typical tassel. (But if you're curious about the art of tassel twirling, check out Elisabeth's post here.)
