When you are buying nipple jewellery if can be hard to find jewellery that is both attractive and comfortable. Comfort is very important for nipple piercing jewellery – whether you are male of female, it’s a sensitive area. Nipple jewellery can rub against your clothing and the wrong choice of nipple jewellery can really irritate your piercing. I have learned from experience that even a slightly uncomfortable piece of nipple jewellery can become the most annoying thing in the world very quickly!
Thankfully there is an easy solution: PTFE nipple jewellery. PTFE nipple bars are flexible and extremely comfortable to wear. This is because PFTE is one of the most biocompatible materials in the world. It is flexible; hypoallergenic; non-stick and can shorten healing times. The non-stick quality is great for nipple piercings – it means that lymph does not stick to your piercing and it hardly needs cleaning. I recommend PTFE nipple jewellery to anyone with a nipple piercing, especially if yours hasnâ€™t healed properly or is often sore. The best part is that PTFE nipple jewellery comes in lots of cool designs, so you can show off your piercings while keeping them comfortable.
Silver & PTFE Nipple Jewellery
Silver and PTFE nipple jewellery combines the comfort of PFTE with a gorgeous look. The silver ends simply push into a hollow PTFE bar, so that the PTFE is hidden inside your piercing. This type of nipple jewellery comes in two basic designs: nipple bars and nipple chains. They both work in the same way and have the same great advantage: you can trim the PTFE to fit your piercing. PTFE can be trimmed with scissors, so you can adjust the length to fit your anatomy perfectly.
The pieces of nipple jewellery shown in this post all come with a 20mm PTFE bar, designed for you to trim at home. This means that you always get the perfect fit and your nipple piercing will stay comfortable no matter what.
How To Use PTFE Nipple Jewellery
PTFE nipple jewellery is designed so that you can trim it to fit. It is really easy to trim and fit your PTFE nipple jewellery – all you need is a pair of scissors. I recommend using a small, very sharp pair of scissors so that you get a nice clean, straight cut. If you are putting a PTFE bar into a sore nipple piercing to help it heal up, it is best to leave your bar slightly too long. This will give the piercing room to breathe and make it easier to clean. Once your piercing has calmed down you can trim the bar to an exact fit. To fit your PTFE nipple jewellery just follow these steps:
- Remove one silver end
- Measure the PTFE bar – either measure against a nipple bar you already have or insert into piercing to measure
- Trim excess with sharp scissors – cut straight across, if in doubt leave a little extra
- Insert nipple bar and check fit, re-trim if necessary
- Reinsert other silver end
