Moms who have sore nipples can benefit from wearing breastshells. Breastshells are worn under the bra to prevent the nipple from rubbing against clothing and becoming chafed and further irritated. The shells have vented fronts that allow air to circulate around the nipple to also help healing. Soft, flexible silicone backs for maximum comfort. Contoured fronts for discreet appearance. Highly absorbent, washable foam inserts.

These are really an amazing product, and they absolutely saved me. I developed a fissure on one side, and breastfeeding was excruciating on that side. I finally bought these, thinking even if they helped a little, they'd be worth it. But I completely underestimated them! The first time I wore them, I noticed improvement. In less than three days wearing them (during the daytime only, in between feedings), the fissure healed completely, and feedings became painless again!They are quite large and noticeable under clothing, and once healed, my nipples became too soft when I continued to wear them for the majority of the day. Now I wear them for an hour or two every day, just to give my nipples a rest, and they work perfectly for that, as well. I have noticed that if I start to leak and am wearing them, when I lean over, the excess milk will sometimes spill out the holes in the top - so keep an eye out for that, but, again, I wouldn't wear them in public, anyway.Despite the minimal cons, I gave these five stars because the difference they made for me in such a short period of time was absolutely unbelievable. I would highly recommend these to any woman with even slightly sore nipples - they're incredible!

I was instructed to use these by my lactation consultation to help draw out my inverted nipples. They are uncomfortable to wear and look un-natural under your clothing. They pull out so much milk, I was having to change out the cotton in them every few hours, otherwise it would overflow and get onto my clothing. Not really worth it. Use a nipple shield instead.

These shields are the best for helping heal cracked nipples. They fully surround the affected area while still allowing airflow. They are easy to clean and gives maximum protection.

The first few days and weeks of breastfeeding my nipples were always raw. All I wanted to do was air them out 24/7. But I still had to cover up when guest came around or if I had to leave the house. My nipples were so raw that putting a pad or any kind of fabric on them hurt so much. The day I got the SoftShells I cried with joy. I was able to wear the shells with a bra and not worry about any friction. I've had a few friends become new mothers since then and this is the #1 gift I get them.
I would buy this product again

Save my breast from being over gorged, and makes my nipples easier to latch on to for a hungry baby
My sore nipples were so grateful!
These were a lifesaver the first rough stretch of nursing with my extremely sensitive and sore nipples. It kept anything from touching them and caught a lot of leakage. They are a large dome shape so they made my breasts look a little funny in some shirts but it was worth it those first couple weeks. Beware of bending forward if you have leaked any, there are holes that will dump your milk out! But overall I was thrilled to have these :)

Great for sore and cracked nipples!!!
from Springfield, IL
Been breastfeeding my son for three months without issue and suddenly my nipples cracked! This product allowed my nipples to get the air they needed to heal, while still allowing me to keep my bra on. They were discreet and comfortable! Didn't even know I was wearing them!

About Me First Time Parent
So it's a good product... it does collect milk but because of the holes at the top I have to empty the she'll at least every half hr or hr cause I produce a lot of milk... If I don't empty it in time and I bend down to pick up my baby the milk gets everywhere.... other than that it does what it says...
