I recently decided to stop wearing a bra, and I’m thoroughly enjoying it. As sick as I am of wearing a winter coat for nearly five months straight, I’m just as over wearing a bra since my teens. A telltale sign is the fact that as soon as I arrive home, the first thing I usually do is unclip and put away my bra. (Don’t we all do this, ladies?) And the latest runway trend of going commando up there has inspired my decision a little bit, too. As of last week, my bras have been in hibernation and I’ve been happily freeing the nipple for 14 days straight — okay, almost 14 days straight.
On the days where I do feel like I need a little more coverage than usual, I throw on these Nippies to feel at ease. They’re sticky, flesh-toned nipple covers that I discovered from YouTube girl Ingrid Nilsen. She’s been wearing them since last summer and I was instantly convinced that I should get myself a pair, as well. (And also because when it comes to YouTube vloggers, I am very impressionable.) But Ingrid was right, and these Nippies live up to her hype. They also haven’t lost any stickiness after a few wears, plus they’re barely noticeable under my clothes. Once they get too dirty to wear, all I need to do is give a quick wash with soap and water.
