3 Wardrobe Malfunction Prevention Must Haves

Nipple Covers

Hollywood Fashion Secrets Silicone Cover Ups $13.99   

Every woman with prominent nipples, who gets cold easily, is going braless, is wearing thinner material, or something that might risk a nip slip needs silicone cover ups. Unless of course you’re showing them on purpose. Do you remember that 1 episode of Sex and the City with Sam and her fake nipples?! If that’s not the look you’re going for, then these are perfect to wear under anything.

Nipple cover ups are really useful for when you’re going braless or when it’s cold. As well as to cover everything up and create smooth lines. These cover ups are also reusable. Simply wash and dry after use and put them away for next time. They also come in 3 different colors for different skin tones, light, medium and dark.                                                                                                                                                                     

Nipple Petals (Target $6.99 for 3 pairs)

The cover ups are a lighter option than silicone and great under thinner or sheerer fabrics to prevent nip slips and create smoother lines. Although they won’t give as much coverage as silicone, they’re a great option for when silicones too thick. You can get them in various colors, I like to stock up in all of them, black, white, and nude. Which means they’re completely undetectable under any color I wear.

I’ve shared a waterproof version at the bottom from Amazon which are great for wearing under swimsuits and bikinis. You can wear them with bikinis that don’t have any padding or lining. However, they will take off fake tanner if you have that on. So place them low enough that you won’t see where the tans been taken off the next day.

Fashion Tape

Hollywood Fashion Secrets Fashion Tape $10.99 Ulta
I discovered double sided tape years ago, back when neck lines plunged down to your waist and the only way to stop everything popping out was these bad boys. Double sided tape is your best friend when it comes to low cut tops, dresses and windy days.
