Update: The original version of this post (from 12/9/18) featured these earring lifters as my preferred solution to droopy earrings. While I still think those are effective, I have since discovered a new solution that I like even better! This post has been updated to reflect my current preferences.
As you are probably aware by this point, I love finding simple, artful solutions to everyday problems. It’s kind of my thing! :-)
Most of the time, these simple solutions take the form of a clever hack or quick tip. But occasionally, I come across a product that is so brilliant and useful that I feel compelled to spread the word about it! And that’s exactly what I’ll be doing in today’s post.
The Problem: Droopy Earlobes & Earrings
One of the less enjoyable aspects of getting older is losing elasticity in your skin. I have taken this change in stride for the most part, but the hardest pill to swallow was giving up dangly earrings.
As much as I love them, they had started to weigh down my earlobes, causing them to look droopy and sad. I (reluctantly) made the switch to stud-style earrings, but after a while, even the studs starting making my earlobes look droopy!
I’ve always loved wearing earrings, so this was a highly distressing development! For a while, I figured that the only way to fix the problem was to have my earlobes surgically reshaped.
That is, until I came across the miraculous product that solved my problem in seconds!
The Solution: Earring Supports
Unsurprisingly, I discovered the simple solution to my problem on Amazon. They’re called BlingDots Earring Supports, and they are self-adhesive stabilizers you place on the backs of your earlobes. Simply apply the BlingDots and poke the posts of your earrings through them, and your earrings will stay put!
One of the best thing about these little dots, in my opinion, is how long they last. I can keep a single pair on for several days at a time, through showers and shampoo, and I don’t even notice them!
One box costs about $15 and comes with 90 BlingDots (or 45 pairs). With as long as they last, I know I won’t have to buy another box for several months!
I haven’t had any issues or problems while wearing these—only the benefits of feeling confident about wearing earrings again! And since I know I’m not the only person who feels self-conscious about having droopy earlobes, I hope someone out there can benefit from learning about these like I did! :-)
