Like all types of jewellery, nonetheless, there are certain disadvantages to wearing clip earrings.

The most important accessories for clip earrings are the so-called earring slippers. These are specifically designed to help keep clip earrings in place, with the added advantage of making the jewellery more comfortable to wear. Although how is this possible?
Earring slippers are made of a slightly sticky, gummy and rubbery material that enhances the clip on earrings grip on the earlobes. Think of a double-sided tape used for clothes with revealing necklines and thats how earring slippers work in relation to clip on earrings. These accessories prevent earlobe malfunctions, so to speak, so that even when you are working up a sweat, your clip earrings stay in place by virtue of added adhesiveness.
Then there are the earring cushions. Just as the name implies, these are discreet cushions placed behind the earlobe that relieve the pressure coming from the clip earrings. These cushions are made either from thin foam or from soft plastic, both of which are relatively flexible.
To use these accessories for clip on earrings, just slide the cushion over the back of the earrings and then clip on the jewellery as usual. The cushion will be discreetly hidden at the back of your earlobes, thus, keeping the metal clip of the earrings from touching your skin while also relieving the mechanical pressure coming from the jewellery.
With these two accessories in your jewellery box, your clip earrings will be so much more enjoyable to use. Just use the slippers to keep your earrings sticking to your earlobes, while the cushion will be used to keep off the pressure from your earlobes. Who says that you cannot use both accessories on your clip on earrings?
