Plasters, micropore tape, Vaseline, surgical removal, running bare chested, a nicer top, compression top, HTFU.

Have I missed any ?

From memory - it does get better.

Bodyglide. In a stick, easier to use than vaseline.

Get breast cancer. Have breasts removed then added back on, sans nipples. Don't put on rubber replacement nipples when running.

I used Vasleine as I happened to have some in the house (insert your preferred reason here). It does stain tops after a while though. Does bodyglide stain?

Nothing wrong with a bit of nipple rubbing
Chafing though, ouch, as Ultra Cougie said. My pref is Elastoplast tape but have to shave round nips to get good adhesion (male!) - not a great look but what the hell!

Body Glide doesn't stain. Blood does

I know a guy who prefers to have bleeding nipples as he doesn't like the idea of pulling off plasters. With all due respect to StB's thread, the guy must be a p***k!

See the thread on here called Gentlemen's breast chaffing. I raised this very question and ended up buying some strapall. It works a treat and I am now pain free. Get your missus/mister to help you take them off after a run

I remeber these adverts and wanted a poster for my garage/gym wall of the elastoplast one!

Corn plasters. Small enough you shouldn't have to shave round the nip to get them to stick on. Two on each nip. Or so I've been told by a male running friend of mine who swears by them...
