I was totally not aware of this. Recently a reader asked about soft cups and nipple show, and I answered by saying that many soft cups have a pretty sturdy lining or are very slightly padded. To this, ina60eorf answered with :
"I have fought nipple show my whole adult life. It's the main reason I wore push-ups to keep things under wraps. If you find and wear your right size bra, it fits snugly enough that show-through (even in a non-padded) is much reduced. It took probably 6 months in a right-sized bra for this to hold true for me. Until that time I bought silicone daisies at La Senza to keep things under wraps. If, after you've migrated, you centre yourself under the seams; you should notice a big difference. For reference, without a bra (in a breeze) you could hang your coat off me. Right sized bras do amazing things !!!"
Big thanks, Ina ! I had no idea that the correct or wrong fit of a bra could have an influence on nipple show.
Do you have any more tips for dealing with nipple show when wearing soft bras ?
