Nipple pasties are small, adhesive covers designed to conceal and protect your nipples. They are commonly used by individuals who require a smooth, seamless appearance under clothing, such as dancers, performers, and fashion models. Our very own fashion models in our store wear them! Nipple pasties are also a popular choice for individuals who want to add an extra layer of comfort and confidence to their everyday wear.

Choosing the Right Nipple Pasties for Your Needs

With so many options available, selecting the perfect nipple pasties can be overwhelming. Here are some key factors to consider when making your decision:


Nipple pasties come in a variety of materials, including silicone, fabric, and paper. Silicone pasties are hypoallergenic and gentle on the skin, while fabric pasties offer a soft, breathable option. Paper pasties are a more affordable choice, but may not be as comfortable or durable. Honestly paper pasties sometimes can chafe so this matters a lot.

Size and Shape

Ensure you choose a size that fits comfortably and securely. Nipple pasties come in various shapes, including round, oval, and heart-shaped. Select a shape that suits your body and personal preference. We carry all the sizes and shapes, even flower shaped which is cute and fun!

How sticky are the nipple pasties? Adhesive Strength

If you plan to wear your nipple pasties for an extended period or during physical activity, opt for a stronger adhesive. If you prefer a more gentle option, choose a pasty with a lighter adhesive. It depends on the person though. Some don't nice very adhesive ones.

Color and Finish

Nipple pasties come in a range of colors and finishes, from natural skin tones to bold colors and glittery effects. Choose a color that matches your skin tone or complements your outfit. We carry all the colors and finishes too!

Comfort and Breathability

Prioritize comfort and breathability, especially if you plan to wear your nipple pasties for extended periods. Look for pasties made from breathable materials and designed for comfort. This is a big one because sweat nipple pasties are the total worst. You may want to choose a pair with a slightly concave design to ensure a comfortable fit.


Nipple pasties vary in price. Yes this seems silly but there are expensive nipple pasties out there, we know! We carry a wide category of all prices. We try to keep all our nipple pasties pretty value priced. 

Color and Design

Nipple pasties come in a wide range of colors and designs, from subtle and natural to bold and decorative. Consider your skin tone and the color of your clothing when choosing a pair. If you want a more discreet look, opt for a pair that matches your skin tone. If you want to make a statement, choose a bold color or design. Again we carry multiple designs too. 

Comfort and Durability

When choosing nipple pasties, comfort and durability are crucial. Look for a pair that is soft, breathable, and gentle on your skin. Additionally, consider the adhesive strength. You want a pair that will stay in place all day, without causing irritation or discomfort.


Choosing the right nipple pasties can be overwhelming, but by considering the occasion, material, size, shape, color, and comfort, you can find the perfect pair for your needs. Remember, nipple pasties are designed to make you feel confident and secure, so don't be afraid to experiment and find the pair that works best for you.
