When I was researching my studs upgrade, I went through PS and found MANY helpful posts and ideas for my issue, but I thought it would be a great resource if they were all compiled into one thread!

Uneven piercings? Drooping studs? Heavy dangles that you can’t live without, but can’t wear longer than an hour? A setting change that fixed the problem? Skin irritation that had to be addressed?

PLEASE add what has worked for you! Maybe it will help someone. Post the product, any links to vendors or suppliers, and please also link previous posts or threads that should be included here! AND, since this is SMTB, let’s see those Before & After bling shots!

I’ll start—my issue is uneven piercings. My left piercing is just a mm or so lower than my right, but as I was creeping up the stud size, I began to get worried about how big I could actually go, size-wise.

I got new ACAs from Whiteflash in their six-prong martini setting. 1.32 ctw. I could push my La Pousette backs in very tightly to attempt to fix my lower piercing, but the earring would leave a mark on my skin, and I was afraid of stretching my piercings over time.

I decided to try this product that I got off Amazon-

*all of these pictures have the earrings clicked in to the same mark on the posts. Nothing is different except that little dot sticker!*

The bling guard dots are like little foam stickers. So this adhesive will not work for everyone. You can cut these to make them smaller if needed. I don’t think this company makes different flesh tones, but I hope they’re in development! Other companies with similar products may have a variety.

Another glorious AFTER shot!

I use the bling dots too! They do a fabulous job


Edited to add: Melissa at High Performance Diamonds sent me some with hoop earrings. I ordered more on Amazon

Are the dots single wear? I take off my earrings nightly, so if they are one use then they are not practical for me on a daily basis but would be good for special occasions!

I use a product called Levears that I saw on Facebook one day. They are designed to have a right ear and left ear specific back and they do help stabilize earrings for those with stretched piercings. After a long day I would notice that the earring wouldn't be quite as perky on my lobes but overall they did work well.

However, 6 weeks ago I had ear lobe repair surgery to fix my stretched piercings. I'm looking forward to being able to wear regular earring backs someday soon.

If you read the Amazon Q&A for this product you can see that some people say they leave them on for a few days, even up to a week.

Adding @LLJsmom jumbo back thread here, since it was one that was very helpful to me, and probably what I will do if I increase my stud size again:
