Here's something practical for those women who want to make a point or two, but aren't up-front enough to do it naturally - the eye-catching Body Perks Nipple Enhancers: Body Perks Nipple Enhancers Apparently, "the natural look is back" and "nipples are in", according to the blurb down at Selfridge's e-commerce tentacle.

    They look like they'd work as good spare nipples for our tommee tippee bottles (probably cheaper too) on the flip side, don't buy these and use a tommee tippee nipple in the safe knowledge that your breasts won't get colic.

    Why are coat pegs in Church considered to be different than any other coat peg?

      If it's something generic you want, try "you could hang a wet donkey jacket on them".

      The version I've heard in the past was "chapel hat-pegs", which made a weird sort of sense: being in the chapel, you'd assume they were designed to securely hold a wimple, or perhaps even a visiting Archbishop's big pointy job, which are among your taller examples of millinery.

      Er, did I over-think that?

        It's an article about the female chest area. You were expecting originality? Wit? Satirical observation?

        To be honest, I only visited the comments page to see what your take on the posts would be :-)

    So are these designed...

    Are these aimed at people going au natural but without natural pointiness, or are they designed to go on top of bras and reinstate lost nipplage while allowing for extra support and shaping?

    I know, I've thought about this too much, but it's Friday and my most trusted source of news is talking about lady-bumps.

    How can it be "the natural look" if you're sticking a set of false nipples to your body?

    Nothing new here

    As any fule kno, plenty of ...ahem..less salubrious women already sport this look - and have for years - but the headline 'High fashion takes a leaf out of slapper's look' isn't going to make the news, is it?

    Plastincine works

    For the one episode of "Porridge" , Patricia Brake had her nipples enhanced with plasticine (so I've heard). What happened to good old British ingenuity?

      What happened to Brit ingenuity? British cuisine.

      Think about, food here has come a long way since the days of Porridge --- how would you react to that plasticine aftertaste? Well, in the seventies you'd have loved it, "finally something that doesn't taste of failed salty gravy" or some such.

    As long as we're allowed to stare.

    I hope any woman going around with her nipples (false or otherwise) sticking out like that won't object if a few of us can't help but stare.

    And there was me thinking women wanted men to talk to their faces and not their chests?

      Sexist pig!

      >>I hope any woman going around with her nipples (false or otherwise) sticking out like that won't object if a few of us can't help but stare.

      How would you know the difference? it's very important to only stare at womens nipples if they are false ones, if you end up staring at womens nipples when they are not false it may be that she doesn't want them stared at.

      "Are you staring at my nipples?"

      "Yes, they are false aren't they? I assume they are there for display"

      "NO! they are real, how dare you stare!"


      "Are you staring at my nipples?"

      "Yes, they are false aren't they? I assume they are there for display"

      "Yes, what do you think?"



      "Are you staring at my nipples?"

      "No, sorry, well, I might have glanced but, I didn't mean to, at least not consciously"

      "It's OK, it's quite chilly in the freezer section and it's a natural reaction from both of us."

      "OK... errr... I'll be off then..."

      "Are you staring at my nipples?"

      "Yes, quality tent pegs you have there love"

      "Eh? are you some kind of pervert?"

      "Don't be stupid, don't blame me, if you don't want me to stare then cover up better"

      This evil invention is just another way to confuse men (and their roles in society), sigh.

      I think there used to be something called nipplettes (now some inversion correction doodad) which did the same things from a few decades ago.

      What's next? "moundettes" for when your camel-toe is not very well defined?

      1. JC 2

        @ Sexist pig!

        Men aren't going to be confused. Some will stare either way and whether a controversy arises out of it depends on whether the woman goes into attack mode for something that is relatively innocent.

        Really, staring at a nipple shouldn't be taken as more offensive than any other body part, like looking someone in the eye continuously when talking to them. OMGWTF, he looked at my eyeballs. Does it reduce women to pieces of meat? Of course, humans are made of meat.

    Nothing is original...

    In a book by John Brunner called Stand on Zanzibar, written in about 1970, and set in 2010, a fashion designer Guinivere Steel, had introduced something she called "Nipicaps" - which are what these are. Maybe his estate can sue for plagiarism.

  30. Cazzo Enorme


    These are perfect for a lot of male body builders. Those that don't subscribe to the natural body building approach (in other words, the ones using crap like anabolic steroids and HGH) have problems with their nipples becoming hard and crusty. As a result, professional body builders often have their nipples removed because they become so unsightly. Rather than following up with expensive surgery to create fake nips from the surrounding tissue, they could get a pair of these instead ...

    And the icon? A certain politician, action film star and former body builder is rumoured to have had his nips removed.

  31. JaitcH

    How about NIPple LESS?

    In Japan they sell the reverse of these - the NIPLESS - which conceals the nipples so women can better conform to Japanese culture!

    (not an uncommon occurrence) - only last week I saw (smooth) nipple covers designed to hide nipples when going bra-less.

    Can someone tell a poor male of the species what is going on here?

    trouser enhancers

    What about the boys? I've heard it said that some of you other guys have had to resort to unconvincing rolled up socks in your Y-fronts. Selfridges: You're missing an opportunity here, what about a adding to your range with a male enhancement vinyl trouser sausage - maybe inflatable so the girls know (think) the nipple enhancers are appreciated.

    And for us more modest guys how about some kind of elasticated legging to stop the damn thing flapping around my knee.

  42. Equitas

    What's the use if they're not real?

    Of course guys are interested in nipples, as more daring flat-chested girls have known for decades. A flat-chested girl with good nipples can attract every bit as much attention as a busty girl can, if she lets her nipples be seen through her top or wears a loose open-necked top that gives the occasional glance of a nipple.

    False nipples don't sound like much fun.
