This is one of our cool new 100% custom products, designed and made by us, just for you! One of the things I realised while I was researching this product is that while there are pre-cut post covers available, they have a lot of restrictions. For one thing, they add quite a lot of girth to your earring post, which can be painful. They also only really fit one type of earring and aren't very flexible.
So, I looked for inspiration in a very strange place. I looked... at condoms. Yes, those kind of condoms. Weird, but it kinda makes sense. You need something thin enough to protect your skin from the metal, but flexible enough to fit different types of earrings and different size posts. Thus, the CK Swagworks post cover tubing was born. Uh... pun fully intended, I guess?
Anyway, our post cover tubing is a thin, soft, stretchy membrane that you slide over the post of your earring to add a skin of silicone between you and your earring post. It's a little hard to get on, but once you've got the technique it's easy to add to all of your earrings, and then you can just leave it there indefinitely.
Our post cover tubing comes in an uncut roll, so that you can use it on all kinds of earrings, whether you just need 10mm for a standard stud or a bit more for a french hook or a hoop.
Your kit contains three 30cm lengths in different sizes, which are designed to fit as follows:
- Size S is for 20-22g earring posts.
- Size M is for 18-20g earring posts.
- Size L is for 16-18g earring posts.
You want to get the tightest fit possible for maximum comfort, because the silicone gets thinner as it stretches. The thinner the silicone, the less added girth on your piercing, and the less discomfort you feel. So, start with Size S and work your way up.
Most standard earrings are 18-20g, so you should have enough to do approximately 30 pairs of earrings. The Size L can also be used for some body piercings as well, which tend to be around 16g. So... you've got heaps! Yay!
