Check out the chafing article on the all new JYAJ.

Band-aids are the way to go – no nipple chafage ever on the long runs.

They do work but for me the band aids stick to the hair on my chest and it really hurts when I pull them off. Also, when they get wet they don’t stick too good.

They make special “nip-guards” which are basically the size of your nipple that you can buy. It’s a small round band-aid. You could also shave a bit of the hair off of your chest around the nipples.

I don’t have that particular problem; I shave the little that is there anyway so they just come right off.

I’ve never had a problem with them staying on when they are wet; they are dry when applied and they just always stay on for me.

[…] 14.  Running in cotton.  Speaking of clothes, running in cotton shirts is another problem marathon jogglers do (at least this one).  Cotton shirts get incredibly heavy and cause lots of chafing. […]

[…] Chafing discovery. You probably have chafing in areas that aren’t obvious except when you’re running. On your first run out, you may discover some painful areas of which you weren’t aware. […]

Thanks Perry. I enjoyed your article on chafing as well. Another good way to prevent nipple chafing is to buy water-resistant band-aids. The best type is made by Curad and are less expensive than “Nipguards”. They work very well, are not painful to remove (you are wet enough after a run that it doesn’t even hurt if you have hair around your nipples) and have remained in place for the entirety of every marathon that I have ever run. For everywhere other than nipples, I still stick by BodyGlide!

armour wear

I am all for it. I wonder how many folks actually use these. I built a small store that grew into over 100 thousands items. Its crazy how fast it grows!. Anyway. I agree!

Armourwear is overpriced. Thankfully there is some competition starting to show up. 20 bucks compared to 50 bucks for a tshirt.

It could be overpriced but all I know is that it works. You didn’t post the names of any cheaper competition so I can’t recommend any other options.
