    Posted: May/03/2009 at 10:21pm
so i'm thinking about just getting over myself and getting my nipples pierced. but i have some questions mostly just regarding healing and my body

questions are!

1: since i am rather large chested i have to wear slightly padded bras to avoid severe back pain. will this cause any disruptions with healing?


...actually that's the only question i have for right now. but any advice/help is appreciated!

Im no pro, but you might want to start off with barbells to heal with. it might also depend of umm im ganna try to say this as plight as possible. It might also depend on how "full" your bra is.

so start off with barbells.
and  make sure your bra is very comfortable.

well hun that sounds like my chest and really its fine i still have some healing to go but thats for other reasons(baby). but you should be fine. just do the usual sss and they will heal. nipples can sometimes take a long time to heal but i would say about 6mouths to a year. that may sound like a long time but it really isnt. just dont play with them for at least 2-4 mouths and you it will be all good.

A bra was bliss while my nipples were healing.  It keeps your sensitive nipples from getting too much friction.

Bras actually really help for women and helping nipple piercings heal because they really keep them in place and prevent them from moving. Straight barbells are the best jewelry to have in there because from what I've heard with other nipple piercing stories is that with CBR's or other circular jewelry it had caused migration and you really want to prevent that from happening. Be very gentle with them and do not rotate the jewelry or pick of the crusties around the barbells, a shower or sea salt soaks will take them off without irritating the piercing. On average it takes 6 months to heal but depending on how well you keep them clean and your body's reaction to them it could take longer. Just make sure you're comfortable overall with who is piercing you and the environment you're in because if they mess up then healing will be harder or you will be dissatisfied with it overall. I personally think every piercing I get through thoroughly before getting anything and especially with nipple piercings I feel you should do the same.  
 
::edit:: make sure you are always wearing a clean bra :) that is all

I survived it, you can too!!  I wish I'd held out for the bars though. :(

And yeah, my bra has been my best friend.  I slept in a sports bra for a while too.  You know all about the SSS etc. :P

if you have to re-adjust yourself all the time then you're probably not wearing a very good bra. victorias secret really does make good quality bras and i dont wear anything from anywhere else. they have good comfort and protection. Unless your bra just doesnt have the straps adjusted correctly or you're not wearing the right size (i'm not saying thats the case, i'm sure you know how to buy bras) just look into getting a really nice bra or two that you can alternate between washes for the healing time.

oh i wouldn't doubt i'm wearing the wrong fitting bra. it seems every time i find one that fits for a moment, next time i put it on there's something wrong with it...

yup, sounds like you should go get fitted - once you get a correctly fitting bra you will be SO happy - it'll help w/ your back too.

And I'm big chested and just got mine pierced a few weeks ago - like pp's said, wearing a bra actually helps. I wear the tshirt bras and the padding doesn't bother them at all.

OT: good place to look at different brands and info on how to fit yourself if you don't want someone helping u w/ the boobages. http://www.barenecessities.com/feature.aspx?pagename=fit
