The upcoming Sex and the City movie has everyone buzzing about the trailer, the fashions, and, of course, their favorite episodes of the series. I happen to love the one where Samantha attracts a guy (who turns out to be a total manchild) by wearing a pair of fake nipples. The episode first aired in 2001, and it makes me wonder: when did things change?
These days, it seems there's quite the stigma attached to nipples standing at attention. An influx of lined bras and a nip-slip-obsessed tabloid culture make for plenty of incentive to keep your nips under tight wraps. But in a season of built-to-go-braless dresses, you're going to need more—or should we say less—to keep an embarrassing incident from popping up.
Luckily three brands are leading the charge in the no more nip slips war. Bristol6's Nippies Silicone patches ($19.50 for a pair) are lightweight, flesh-toned, and washable and re-wearable up to 50 times.
Hollywood Fashion Tape's Cover-Ups Nipple Concealers ($15 for a pair) are simple silicone stickers you can wear again and again. Their smoothness and paper-thinness makes them ideal for wearing under silky strapless tops or spaghetti strap dresses.
And Pure Style Girlfriends' Smooth 'em Concealers ($17 for a pair) are water and sweatproof, so you can work up a sweat doing… whatever it is you do to get your workout while going sans bra.
I bet sex-crazed Samantha would drop dead before passing a pair of pasties around the breakfast table. But if you're more like prim-and-proper Charlotte, you can now go braless without the constant nagging worry that you'll expose yourself or—gasp!—let the world know you have nipples.
