For most people, just the thought of nipple rings makes them grasp their chest and wince. Imagine what your healing nipples will feel like after a piercing! Here's a great tip to keep clothing (especially bras) from rubbing and irritating your healing nipples. Fashion a doughnut-shaped cushion for yourself with sterile gauze or foam. Make sure that it can fit around the nipple with enough room inside the “hole” for adequate air to circulate. You can tuck these cushions into your bra or even tape them in place with surgical tape before you get dressed. It's probably a good idea to wear loose-fitting tops right after your piercing anyway, but more so if you opt for the nipple cushion, as their outline can show through your clothing.
