I always just wore nursing pads. I hate padded bras too (don't need any extra size added). Any other time, I just try to avoid the cold.

At the moment my nipples are steri stripped to my new boobs. There is a new bra by, I think, Danskin that has these little petal shapes inside the bra that are supposed to hide your nipples. I saw them at Kohl's. I believe they were sports bra's and expensive. Hopefully someone will copy them soon and make them less expensive!

I'm thinking that I'm just going to start going braless... I hate bras... and if they don't hide my nippies, why do I need them? :)

I'll take that trade, LOL! When I was pregnant with Connor, the nipples grew way faster than the rest of the breast - I felt like they entered the room long before the rest of me - haha!! That certainly hasn't changed nursing two kids, but I admit that I do sometimes break out the LilyPadz silicone nursing pads I bought when I was first nursing. (They didn't do great with a high milk-producer like me, but they're perfect when I do want to be a little more subtle.)
Small boobs, big nips, what can I say? Check the alignment before you go out! heehee

I guess because I've always had huge ones before and after kids that I just go w/ it. I've tired the covers too...and they just irritated my skin and it was a pain to think about them everyday. I dont like to buy padded bras or lined ones either because Im already huge and it just makes the girls sweat worse. I hope you find something that works...if not...you're not the only one w/ headlights on.

Yup! I only buy lined bras, and I'm more leary to wear solids because it's more obvious. I used to lifeguard, and I once had an old man swimming comment on them. GROSS! Come on, I was in a swim suit, and probably cold, cut me a break!
I like Annie's suggestion of FB, but I worry that my sensitive skin would get irritated by the petals. Besides, I wouldn't want to do that everyday.
I think the Ipex bras at Victoria Secret are designed to hide nipples better, but I won't invest in any VS bras until I'm done having kids and down to the "right" size.
Sorry you're leaking already! That's annoying.

Anyone else have crazy nipples now that you're a mom? My God! They show through EVERYTHING! I hate them! I hate my boobs all around! Ugh! And now, they are leaking milk too. So not only do I have the 'LOOK AT ME' headlights, it is amplified by the fact that they also randomly leak milk. I'm finally at a stage where I feel comfy and confident in my summer clothes... and now I have to worry about my nipples. :(
