I just use plasters. They work for me and are v cheap.

I'm sure you can get the Nipguards from any of the shops linked at the top right.

I guess you've tried the normal plasters then ? Mine stay on for ages until I rip them off and wax my chest.

I can tell how much racing I've been doing by how smooth my chest is !

I used corn plaster for Berlin 2001 and FLM 2002. They're find but fall over if you dribble too much water down your front. You could keep them in place with micropore tape though

Nipguards are wonderful things. I first tried them at the Las Vegas marathon 2 or 3 years ago, and had a write up in the club RonHill magazine about them. They work a treat and cost about 70p a pair, (packs of 10 I think ). Anything that removes a concern is well worthwhile. For those who wonder, they look a bit like a polo mint, sticky on one side and with a cover on the other side. They have my vote !

Here we go again! I've lost count how many times I've said this on different threads but the answer is Bodyglide - a non-petroleum stick of vaseline-type stuff that us tri types use under wetsuits and swimsuits, doesn't stain, doesn't stick, and best of all, no plasters to pull off!

See Nov issue of RW page 71, Jogger's Nipple

Good luck in Amsterdam. I'll be there too, but am still undecided as to whether to do the full, rather than the half. But I'll have the Nipguards on. Must have a go at the bodyglide too !
