Our Two Most Frequently Asked QuestionS (FAQs) & More

What’s the difference between a Nipco and a pastie?

Our inspiration to create Bra in a Box came from using traditional pasties. Our Classic Nipcos are similar to the silicone nipple covers, or pasties, you may be familiar with. Our Luxe Nipcos are new and improved. Made from a single layer of solid silicone, they are much thinner, allowing the edges to lay flush with the skin. The major innovation we offer is our patent-pending Box. Its unique design allows Nipcos to stick directly into the Box, eliminating the need for the flimsy, easy-to-lose plastic that comes with traditional nipple covers and pasties. 

Can any woman wear Nipcos, regardless of cup size?

Yes! Nipco everyday wear is the perfect solution for the millions of women who don't particularly require additional support. However, they are fantastic for everyone.  If you need or prefer some level of support, we recommend wearing Nipcos under a comfortable tank top or other clothing with built in support.  


Nipcos also provide a great solution for women who prefer or require significant support.  They are the #1 nipple modesty solution for all women.  Who wants to wear a bra at home during holidays, general stay home days, staycations, etc.?  Wearing Nipcos can provide nipple modesty in these scenarios and more, allowing for total comfort.  No more having to do the ole' arm cross when the doorbell rings or wearing your "sleep" bra when the relatives come calling.  All that is over with Bra in a Box.

What is Bra in a Box?

Bra in a Box is an innovative bra alternative that consists of two components:

1) Our one-of-a-kind, patent-pending Box,

2) A pair of silicone Nipcos, and

3) A little surprise (more on that below).  

What are Nipcos?

Nipcos are our brand of silicone nipple covers. It’s time to bring this commonsense solution out of the Prom Night shadows and into the mainstream with Bra in a Box.    

Why use Bra in a Box?

Bra in a Box’s Nipcos provide the coverage you want with the comfort and freedom of going braless! Our patent-pending box is the only custom box designed to store and transport Nipcos.   

How do Nipcos stay on?

There's a thin layer of silicone adhesive on one side of each Nipco, allowing it to adhere to the skin. When combined with your body heat the adhesive forms a bond with your skin, keeping them securely in place. The bonus is ... it feels like nothing! Our co-founder, Phoebe, is a nurse who wears Nipcos throughout her entire 12-hour shift and beyond.     

What benefits does Bra in a Box offer?

First and foremost, it eliminates the need for a traditional bra. After falling in love with silicone nipple covers, we quickly discovered that the thin plastic that traditionally comes with the nipple covers is extremely easy to lose, exposing them to dust and debris. The plastic is essentially invisible; once you’ve lost sight of it, it’s gone forever . . . especially when traveling. We custom designed our Box to not only store and transport Nipcos, but to also eliminate the need for that annoying plastic film. Our Box provides a stylish, smart way to get the most out of your Nipcos.  

What types of outfits are best suited for Bra in a Box?

Any and all outfits, as long as you feel comfortable and confident. Remember, Nipcos are not just for Prom Night or your Wedding Day. They are for every single day!

How do the Classic and Luxe versions differ?

Bra in a Box is available in a Classic and Luxe version. 

  • Classic Bra in a Box includes a Snowy White Box with a silver clasp. It includes a pair of Classic Nipcos.
  • Luxe Bra in a Box includes a Rose Box with a rose gold clasp. It includes a pair of Luxe Nipcos. 
  • Both include a little surprise we call Boost in a Box. (If you become a subscriber, remember to save the little Boosts you receive each month and watch for an upcoming coordinating product.)

How do Classic and Luxe Nipcos differ?

Classic and Luxe Nipcos are both made with silicone but they're manufactured using a different process.


Classic Nipcos are the type of "Nipcos" that we fell in love with and inspired us to create Bra in a Box. They are thicker and spongier than Luxe Nipcos and are made from two thin layers of plastic filled with silicone gel. They also have a small circle in the center of the side that adheres to the skin so that nothing is actually sticking to "the sweet spot". 


Luxe Nipcos are manufactured using a process that's a tad more complex. While they are the same size as our Classic Nipcos, they are extremely thin and made from a single layer of premium silicone. They lay flush with the skin and have a smooth skin-like texture, which is an advantage if you're wearing something super tight like a tank top or swimsuit. They do not have the nonsticky circle but it doesn't hurt at all to remove them. We promise!

Will Nipcos work for older women or those above a C cup?

Yes! Our mission is to empower women to go braless every day; however, we understand that we're all unique. Some women prefer or need the support that traditional bras offer.  In this case, we recommend Nipcos be used to provide nipple coverage under tops or dresses that have some level of built-in support. Also, wear them under sports bras if additional support is needed during exercise. One of our favorite features is that Nipcos can be worn around the house on stay at home days and with pajamas/nightgowns when in mixed company. Both are common scenarios in which we crave comfort but prefer some modesty ... and do not want to strap ourselves into an uncomfortable bra.   

What Nipco skin tones do you offer?

At this time, we offer a light and dark tone. Our goal is to introduce additional Nipco skin tones as our business grows.     

Can Nipcos be used under a swimsuit or bikini while swimming?

Yes! Nipcos can be worn in water. In fact, they are so comfortable that both of our co-founders have accidentally forgotten to remove them before showering. We know first-hand that water has no impact on Nipcos.  

Do you have other Box colors?

Our goal is to release new Box designs two to four times a year.     

How do I wash Nipcos?

Gently wash Nipcos with soap and water after each use to preserve the adhesive and extend their usage.   

How many times can I reuse Nipcos?

Nipcos can be used up to 15 times with maximum stickiness.  We’ve actually worn ours for up to 30 times and that included hot summer days. As the adhesive wears down, the Nipco begins to lift at the edges. This is a sign that you may be ready for a new pair. Bra in a Box offers a monthly subscription plan so that you always have a new pair on hand when needed.

Is Bra in a Box sold in stores?

Not yet but that’s our goal!  Our  wholesale program launches in August 2019.  Please contact us at info@brainabox.com for more information.   

How does your subscription service work?

We provide our customers with the freedom to choose how they prefer to purchase Bra in a Box.  Bra in a Box comes with one set of Nipcos and can be a one-time purchase. We also offer a subscription Nipco delivery service for our customers who frequently use Nipcos and would love to have a fresh pair (or two) delivered to their door each month. Our monthly subscription ensures that our customers never have to experience the disappointment of reaching for their Nipcos only to find the adhesive worn thin with no backups in sight.  Our monthly subscribers also receive a new Boost in a Box surprise each month.  

Do you accept returns?

We accept returns of our Box up to 30 days after purchase. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the product, we do not accept Nipco returns. If you return your Box, we will refund the full purchase price although you keep the Nipcos.     

How can I cancel or change my Nipco subscription?

If you decide you would like to cancel your Nipco subscription please email us and we will cancel it immediately, no questions asked.  


We can also change the frequency you relieve your Nipcos if required.


You can reach us at info@brainabox.com.

Could I have an allergic reaction to Nipcos?

Silicone has a well-established profile of being safe when applied to the skin. However, if your skin is highly sensitive, we recommend testing the Nipcos on a less sensitive area of skin first. If irritation occurs, remove the Nipco and gently wash your skin with soap and water.  If you have a known allergy to silicone, we recommend that you do not use this product.
