Perkies Nips: For Those Who Seek That Look

(Filed Under Financial and General Interest News). Perkies Nips are adhesive backed disks that allow women the illusion of permanently erect nipples.

This option is particularly appealing to women who have undergone a mastectomy and breast reconstruction, thus depriving them of natural nipples. In addition, according to the company, “these reusable nipple enhancers align with the pop culture trend of “free the nip.””

When the company launched Perkies Nips, a decision was made to “donate 5% of all website sales to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation due to a personal connection to breast cancer, and knowing that BCRF is the highest-rated breast cancer research organization in the country. Rather than simply offer financial support,” explained Rosie Mangiarotti, the owner.

The firm gathered information from “breast cancer survivors and previvors. I spoke on the phone with them, I listened to podcasts, I listened to Instagram Lives, and I learned. I learned that many women, post-mastectomy, do not have nipples. They lose a sense of their identity, a piece of their femininity, a part of their confidence. This knowledge, coupled with the rise of the #freethenip trend — knowing that not every woman has a perfect pair of Perky Nips but are still seeking that look — gave me the confidence to create Perkies Nips! When I created Perkies Nips (patent pending), I had both demographics in mind.”

“When I moved to Los Angeles,” Mangiarotti continued, “I was told to make a pierced version by many women. After hearing it five times in one day, I knew there was a promising market for the Pierced Nips version. Perkies is dedicated to sustainability, inclusivity, and empowering women to feel confident.”

“Perkies currently offers three shades of nude (light, medium, and dark) in each of our three main SKUs. As we scale (and raise money), we intend to have different sizing of Perkies Nips to further cater to the needs of all communities who use Perkies. Our wholesale price points range from $12.50 - $25” for the unpierced and pierced versions, and the suggested retail price points are $25-$50. Contact:; 516-216-9412.
