Sizing Guide

Not sure what size pasties to order? Here's a quick guide on how to measure!

Boom-Boom Pasties are sized based on the diameter of areola coverage you require.
To get the right size, measure your areola (the brown part around the nipple) with a ruler from top to bottom then left to right and write down the widest measurement.
If you already have a perfect pastie that covers you, place a ruler or tape measurer down and pop the pastie on top to measure its diameter.

Want a bit of a history lesson?

Pasties emerged in burlesque and striptease in the 1920s as a way to avoid breaking the law by performing topless or nude. Pasties came to be regarded by some as more aesthetic and erotic. They were worn in cabarets such as the Folies Bergère and Le Lido. Burlesque performer Carrie Finnell is attributed with adding tassels which hang from the center and incorporating tassel twirling as part of a performance.
