Laura: a few months ago

Great for when you need a break or have applied Dr Newman cream and want to give it time to penetrate the skin rather than wipe off on clothes. As someone else mentioned, you can wear too long because moisture will build up which it why they get 4 stars instead of 5 as ventilation could be increased.

Jodi: a few months ago

These saved my nipples at the beginning of breastfeeding. You can't wear them too long or they hurt but gives a nice break.

Lisa: about a year ago

Was very excited to use this product but was very disappointed. They were very uncomfortable to wear and actually hurt the area more.

Amazingly helpful for sore nipples and helped mine heal from cracking and very painful blanching issues. Only watchout is that if you're wearing them under layers (ie in the winter as I did) they can make your nipple area sweaty which is a risk for thrush, so you just have to be careful to keep the area as clean and dry as possible.

Katy: more than a year ago

I bought these for my sister because she is trying to be as natural as possible and I knew she didn't want to use creams that have additives in them. Here's hoping they do what they need to do! I

The underside which goes against your skin is very soft and malleable. The cups are hard but the contour of them is quite natural looking. THese do the job they are meant to. Allowed my nipples to heal fully and also are a great relief from Reynod's associated blanching.

These work great! You can wear them with just a shelf bra and it gives the appearance of a regular bra. You can also fit them in your normal bra, but be prepared to gain a big cup size or more in appearance. I read somewhere that people are bothered by the silicone pressing into them underneath. This is ridiculous. They are so soft and comfortable. The outside is very hard, of course, be prepared to shock anyone you hug.
