Band-aid over your nipples? I mean, you’re um. BIGGER than I am in that department, but I would think band-aids would at least provide some coverage from nipple – eye poking and if your dress slipped a little, they’d just see a band-aid.

This might sound crazy, but what about nursing pads? They are generally thin, you can smooth the edges so it doesn’t stand out, and they hide pokeyness pretty well 🙂

don’t use bandaids! you can see the creases sometimes under the fabric – not something you want in your wedding photos. get the nipple covers.

@lmbride: They showed through? Were they white or nude? Or was it the shape that showed through?

I am a 34 DDD, and I free boobed it… soooooo comfy.  But, I had a really structured tight dress with boning.  I love your dress… nursing pads might do the trick!

I’m a 36Dirty Delete, but I was quite pleasantly surprised by the sticky bra I wore as a bridesmaid in September.  Are you certain that you followed the directions precisely when you tried them (i.e. washing the skin of your breasts and drying it before applying them)?

@lmbride: Do you remember what brand you used?  I tried NuBra.  I have HORRIBLY sensitive skin; I’m allergic to just about everything.  That’s why I avoided trying them for years and years.  NuBra worked for me, though.  I’m definitely a believer now.

As for being horribly comfortable…  Well, I don’t think they’ll ever be the most comfortable, and I wouldn’t want to wear sticky bras every day, but if you try placing and re-placing the cups until they lay just right, they end up okay.  I had to try to place each one approximately three times.

I think nipple covers are the way to go, however, the nursing pads are a really creative idea! I’ve tried the band-aids before and they didn’t work.  I’m small-chested (but still concerned with nippage), and the NuBra shape didn’t really work for me, but might work for you!
