Boots do some extra strong fabric plasters - i find them superb. Only recently started using them. I get nipple pain pretty bad.
I'm also quite hairy in the chest department, so I've had to shave a circular area around the nipple so the plasters stay put! Looks odd, but it means I finish a run with 2 nipples so its a fair sacrifice!
My nipples start to bleen when i get to about 3 miles. Spoke to a doctor about it and he said use Vaseline. Any comments on that?
Yeah I've used vaseline in the past - it definitely works, I just found I need to slather on rather a lot of it, and it ruins your running t-shirts, by leaving dirty great big dark circles round on the t-shirts that won't come out in the wash!
But defo works - just wear dark t-shirts!

I find best thing for nipple pain is two substantial bulldog clips - works every time for me
I use sellotape! Had to shave around the nipple area to get them to stick - but works fine for me and cheap!
i had the pleasure of working on FLM 05 + 06 , as a medal hanger on the finish line and had a heeby jeeby moment when i turned to give a man his medal and then it hit me that his WHITE vest was covered in red - absolutely turned my stomach . so ever since then i make sure my nips are covered for any longer run
I remember Antonio Pinto running along the Embankment on his way to one of his London Marathon victories with blood streaming down his vest.
