After suffering decidedly flat sales, the switch from lingerie magazine to online store has worked wonders for these Canadian-made nipple enhancers.
From dismal figures of only 10 pairs a month, it now seems that Japanese women can’t get enough of these protruding pads. And with the help of TV and magazine reports, they are now flying off the shelves at a rate of 2,000 pairs a month.
Yet as snow is still falling and temperatures remain uncomfortably low, could it be the nice velvet bag they come in that is attracting so many customers?

One of the first “aren’t the Japanese crazy” products I ever remember seeing was for nipple covers – adhesive band-aid type things to eliminate prominent nipples.
Mind you, I’m sure those are available and utilized here in the US, but of course, I wouldn’t know about that myself. In fact, it was an advertisement that I first saw the nipple covers in, and maybe the clear functionality of the ad was what jolted me to a different culture.
Reminds me of the old joke about a hard nip being Bruce Lee …
Good Lord. And here I’ve been working my whole adult life to keep those damned things from showing through my clothes.
I can relax my constant vigil now and be thought of as fashion forward!
Ewww. Why don’t they just stop wearing bras and save their money?
David James says
If common sense applied to fashion, it wouldn’t be fashionable, would it? In fact, I think we can all agree that commom sense is generally out of fashion all over the world. Common sense is boring, fashion is not. But bras and nipple covers, together? So not cool!
this is going to put padded bra mfg’ing out of of business.
i thought we were supposed to *hide* the nips? for decency’s sake…at least in a professional setting? not. any. more.?
if i was a man, and i saw nips all day, i’d have a really, um, hard time with it all.
these nips look weird. and really big. who has such LARGE nipples?
David James says
I don’t think that the ‘size’ of the nipple is at issue. Rather it is whether it is sufficiently hard to be observable through the clothing. Cold will cause nipples (male or female) to harden. This becomes virtually impossible in the cozy, warm environment provided by a bra, . . and the nipples simply go flat.
Apparently, it has now become (like virtually everything else) a fashion statement to sport visible nipples. Absent the old photographer’s trick of the trusty ice-cube, the Canadians have produced a clever substitute.
Gosh, whatever will the men do to keep up with the girls?
Actually they found that most of these “inventions” have been purchased by men, being that myself, and probably most other women would rather get attention for other things other than our headlights. I actually heard that many male crossdressers love them.
WOW nice I would look at these at day.
One reason for the japanese women`s craze for nipple enhancers might be that they can hide their in most cases long nipples within the cave of the enhancer in a more comfortable way: The nipples remain unfolded and no one has a clue of the real nipple length as the enhancers are all of the same size (arn’t they?)
