+1 for strapall: micropore falls off when wet (in my experience: I guess there are different types). Compression tops can work, but can get a bit warm.
Little square of toilet paper to go over the nip itself, then a cross of strapall tape. For marathons, I tend to do three pieces of tape across it, and then some vaseline across the top (belt and braces). The longer it stays on, the more secure it is, but this is a balance. If you are doing a long run, you might want to put it on the night before to make sure it is really secure. The quicker you take it off after the run, the less painful it is (but it really isn't that painful, and I am reasonably hairy).
