Another must in my model kit is a pair of nude pasties. Personally, I don’t like having my nipples on display whether under sheer garments or lightweight fabrics so I wear pasties if I am not wear a bra. I think can also be distracting from the clothing if my nipples are showing and the last thing I want to do as a model is distract from a garment.
Some designers and photographers many prefer visible nipples but that is for another post.
There are many pastie options including cute, funky, sexy you name they have it. I’ve even seen pasties with live succulents on them. But unless a designer specifically requests a certain look I try to go with neutral pasties.
These are the two options I use.
Adhesive/One time use
There are pros and cons to each.
|Easy to remove/reposition||Shiny|
|Soft||Not always skin toned|
|Flexible||Less secure especially in heat/humidity|
|Adhesive/One Time use|
|More skin tone options||Irritating|
|Matte color||Difficult/painful to remove|
|Various sizes/shapes||Not as flexible|
|Secure even in heat/humidity||Wrinkle easily|
Personally, I prefer the gel ones. I just find them more comfortable. And my sensitive skin reacts to the adhesive of the other kind. Nothing like having a petal shaped rash around my nipple!
I always carry a couple with my in my kit just in case. I also have a few of the one-time use version in case another model needs them.
