As the weather warms up, most women can breathe a collective sigh of relief. The cold is leaving us, and having to deal with hard nipples showing through shirts can leave with it. While our nipples are just a natural part of our body, our society really has a problem with them, and it can be embarrassing when you look down and realize that they are poking through your shirt for everyone to see.

Of course, a lot of women only have to worry about their nipples showing up when they are cold, causing their nipples to harden and suddenly make an appearance. Unfortunately, this isn’t true for all women.

Women with larger boobs might have a way harder time concealing their nipples than others. Your nipples might just be bigger, push up against your bra more, be harder, or for some reason, you just have more visible nipples because of your busty boobs. This can be a real problem in a world where this is seen as unprofessional and trashy.

Busty women either have to live knowing that everyone can see their nipples, or they have to wear unflattering attire to cover it up; and going braless? Unimaginable.

I first want to state that you should never be ashamed of your body. If the world could just accept that women have nipples, that would be great. It would be awesome to walk into your workplace and not have to worry about if the air conditioner is on too high so your boss won’t ogle you from across the room.

However, that’s the way things are right now, and we know there’s a lot of malfunctions that can happen when you are a busty woman. We want to end these nipple malfunctions once and for all. All you busty ladies out there who have troubles with your nipples showing too much, here is what you can do to make those nipples disappear.

You won’t have them to worry about for much longer.

Wear a tank top


Wearing a tank top under your shirt is the fastest and easiest way to make sure your nipples don’t show through your shirt. If you are having an especially hard time with this, you can try opting for a thicker tank top, or you could even fold it over so it becomes two layers over your bra.

If you try this during the summer months, it might be a little annoying to have so many layers in the hot weather, and it might seem a little too bulky. You can try a thin tank top and see if that helps out.

It truly doesn’t overheat you by adding just one layer under your shirt, and it will be totally worth it when you can feel cute and confident in your clothes, without worrying about someone seeing a little more of you than you would like.

Get nipple pasties


While you probably don’t just have these lying around the house, nipple pasties are super cheap to buy. They come in packs and you can order them very easily online. Maybe paying for something extra under your bra isn’t what you were really looking for, but this is much more effective than a simple quick fix.

The great thing about nipple pasties is that they come in different shades, so it can match your skin tone, and they have adhesive so they stay in place all day. Don’t worry though- it will never stick too much to you or be painful to get them off.

If you are looking for a quick fix and you can’t really wait for an online order to arrive, try using another tip on this list. Please DO NOT try to use some other adhesive, like a band-aid or sticker. Pasties are designed to come off easily and pain-free, and they also have an adhesive that won’t irritate your nipples. If you use something else, chances are you are going to be regretting it when it comes time to take them off. Yikes.

Avoid certain shades of clothes


Never underestimate the power of color. This is something that is generally looked over when thinking about concealing nipples, but it is actually really important to consider. Darker colors are generally going to do a better job concealing your nipples. You should avoid wearing lighter colors and sheer tops if you have problems in this area.

A funny thing to note is that the human eye can actually see more shades of green than any other color. This means that you should avoid this color if you can, because it will be easier to see breast shape and nipple through the clothing. Keep this in mind when choosing your clothing- especially if you are going to be in colder weather.

Consider bras with extra padding


If you are having problems with concealing your nipples, it might be because of the bras that you are wearing. If you have bras that don’t have a lot of padding, chances are greater that your nipples are going to show through it. Of course, if you are a busty girl, extra padding might not really be something you’re looking for.

If extra padding scares you, try to find padded bras without underwire. This means that you won’t have to deal with extra mass getting added to your bra, and no push-up effect will happen, but you will still be able to conceal your nipples.

It’s pretty upsetting that in this culture we can’t just accept that women have nipples. It would be great if we could just ignore it. However, it is still embarrassing when it happens, and hopefully you are now equipped with some ideas to help you conceal your nipples day to day. It isn’t too difficult to follow these tips and tricks. You will be back to looking great and feeling fantastic in no time!
