The 5 Best Nipple Stretchers for Pinching and Pulling

   Kevin Foley
Nipple stretchers are great! Whether you want to permanently stretch your nipple or just enjoy some nipple play pleasures for the moment, getting the right nipple stretcher for you can take the experience from “good” to “great”! Our favorite nipple stretcher is the Tit Tuggers, a premium metal clam that’s completely adjustable and suitable for nearly any level of nipple toy play. However, there are plenty of other products that offer different experiences: some more intense, some less so. No matter what type, style, or price range you want your next nipple stretcher to be in, you’re sure to find the perfect one for you on our list below! See this post on the best nipple clamps, or these on nipple suckers and nipple vibrators.

Tit Tuggers Clamp

 Tit Tuggers

  • Love intense nipple play
  • Have tried clamps before
  • Prefer the look of metal

Tit Tuggers

  • Prefer light nipple play
  • Need a budget-friendly option
  • Have a nickel allergy

If you’re looking for an all-around nipple stretcher that lets you choose your preferred intensity, our number-one recommendation has to be the Tit Tuggers Clamps! Made almost entirely of metal, these clamps easily grab onto your nipples using clothes-pin style pinchers. Whether the pressure is too much or too little, it’s no issue: you can adjust the pressure using the adjustment nut! Looking sexy when pinching in place and designed to offer years of enjoyable nipple play, this is one purchase you won’t regret!  

  • Adjustable
  • Made of metal
  • Somewhat weighty toy
  • Clothes-pin style

  • No O-rings or D-rings

Length(Entire clamp) 6.25 inches, (frame) 5 inches
Diameter2 inches
FasteningClamps w/ threaded stem
Weight0.32 lbs
AllergiesContains nickel

Design-wise, this nipple stretcher is great. With the base ring pressed firmly against your breast, the pressure/tug can easily be adjusted, making it possible for users of most levels to enjoy this toy. Of course, if we were to be picky, we’d point out that this toy lacks any rings to attach chains to. However, this isn’t much of an issue, as the clamps themselves have some weight for that amazing tug. Really, the only issue you may run into is the inclusion of nickel. Since these devices are made from nickel-plated metal, this product is—unfortunately—not suitable for those with nickel allergies. However, as long as you don’t have a nickel allergy, we think these are a great option. They are a bit pricey, but considering how long they’re likely to last you, we’d say they’re worth the asking price!  

2 Beginner

Squeeze and Tease Nipple Clamps

 Squeeze and Tease Nipple Clamps

  • Enjoy intense nipple play
  • Love textured tips
  • Want to add weights
  • Enjoy intense pain
  • Are an experienced pain player
  • Don't need adjustable clamps
  • Would like an affordable option for your pain play

Squeeze and Tease Nipple Clamps

  • Don’t want a chain
  • Want something adjustable
  • Are new to nipple play
  • Would like to use these with multiple people as they can't be adjusted
  • Are looking for an all-day wear clamp

The Squeeze and Tease Nipple Clamps are a budget-friendly option best suited for more advanced players. Each nipple stretcher uses a clover clamp design, meaning that adjustability is out of the question. Instead, you’ll feel the clamps tighten down as the chain is tugged on, giving you that intense pinch you’re after! If the weight from the chain alone isn’t enough, you can even add weights to the chain for a more intense experience. If intensity on a budget is what you’re after, these clamps are definitely worth your 20 or so bucks!  

  • Unique style
  • Chain can tolerate weight
  • Adds high pain quickly

  • May be too intense for some
  • Chain can’t be switched out
  • Not adjustable

Length20 inches inches
FasteningSqueeze clamp
Storage Bag IncludedNo

First things first: we don’t recommend this nipple stretcher for complete beginners. Being non-adjustable, the pressure you get once you put the stretchers on is the bare minimum you’ll get. If you are a beginner, our first option would be better suited for you. However, if you are one of the people after intense nipple play, the Squeeze and Tease Clamps certainly won’t disappoint. Adding to their intensity, these clamps feature textured tips, which help the clamps stay in place while being tugged on. At less than $25, we think these clamps offer excellent value for the money. You can add more weight to the chain, but actually replacing the chain will require a bit of DIY work. As such, we probably wouldn’t recommend it. Still, we think most people will be satisfied with the clamps as-is. If you’re intrigued and want to give these a try, we highly recommend it!  

3 Weighted

Weighted Disc Nipple Clamps

 Weighted Nipple Clamps

  • Are looking to upgrade your clamps
  • Prefer non-textured tips
  • Want something simple

Weighted Nipple Clamps

  • Prefer pinching to tugging
  • Won’t use the weight
  • Don’t like chains

Next up are the Weighted Disc Nipple Clamps! Featuring two PVC-tipped clamps attached via a Y-chain, this nipple stretcher allows you to add (or remove) weight with ease. The included disc weighs about 2.89 ounces and can be easily attached to the chain for some sexy, swinging action. The clamps themselves are fully adjustable, allowing you to increase or decrease the pinching pressure as desired. Simple in design but effective in practice, these clamps are an excellent option for nipple play at any level!  

  • Easy to use
  • Weight can be removed
  • Affordable
  • Nickel-free

  • Lower-quality tips
  • Chain length may be excessive
  • Only includes one weight
Weighted Nipple Clamps
MaterialsIron, rubber
FasteningClamp w/ adjustment screw
Weight(With weights) 0.299 lbs., (without weights) 0.12 lbs

This nipple stretcher is a good option for all but the most extreme of nipple play enthusiasts. Even more advanced players can enjoy them by simply switching out the included weight for a heavier one! We really liked how the weight can be removed, as not everyone will want weight all of the time. Unfortunately, the chain itself is not removable. This could be a great improvement, as the chain will simply be dangling around without a weight on it. Still, you can always use the chain by itself for some tugging action! Affordably priced and simple in design, we’d confidently recommend this to both beginner and intermediate nipple players. For all of you advanced nipple players out there, consider our thoughts about switching out the weight before taking the plunge!  

4 Talon

Extreme Talon Nipple Clamps

 Extreme Talon Clamps

  • Love extreme nipple play
  • Enjoy temperature play
  • Don’t generally use weights

Extreme Talon Clamps

  • Want weighted clamps
  • Don’t like sharp pain
  • Prefer a basic clamp design

As you may have guessed by the name, the Extreme Talon Nipple Clamps are what we would consider an advanced nipple play item. Each nipple stretcher features tiny, sharp claws that stab into your nipple as they latch on. With the possibility of piercing the skin and the guarantee of some serious pain, these nipple clamps are a great option for those who don’t get enough stimulation from regular clamps. If you’re ready to take things to a whole new level of intensity then the Extreme Talon Nipple Clamps just might be the right toy for you!  

  • Offers that extra “bite”
  • Easy to use
  • Stays in place
  • Can be cooled for added sensation

  • A bit pricey
  • Too intense for beginners
  • Short chain
Extreme Talon Clamps
Length(Chain) 14 inches, (clamp) 0.55 inches

For obvious reasons, we don’t recommend this nipple stretcher to beginners. However, we also don’t recommend them to those who tend to be a bit careless when it comes to aftercare, as the skin punctures potentially left by these clamps can become infected if not properly treated. That said, we’re going to assume that—if you’re interested in this product—you’re more than competent when it comes to proper sterilization procedures! Assuming you are, these clamps are a great option if you prefer sharp pain and pinching instead of weighted tugging. If simply mounting the clamps isn’t enough, you can also twist them or chill the entire clamps down for extra intensity upon the initial “bite”. If everything we’ve gone over so far sounds A-OK to you, chances are, you’re the type of person who will truly love these clamps. At less than $40, you’re sure to get your money’s worth!  

5 O-Ring

Bully Nipple Clamps

 Bully Nipple Clamps

  • Plan on adding weight to your clamps
  • Love the look of thick rings
  • Want multi-purpose clamps

Bully Nipple Clamps

  • Just want simple clamps
  • Prefer non-adjustable clamps
  • Don’t like tight clamps

Thick, sturdy, and designed to apply some serious pressure, the Bully Nipple Clamps are easy to use but hard to master. Each nipple stretcher uses a basic clothes-pin design to secure itself on your nipple, which can be adjusted to your preferred pressure. Below the clamp hangs a large ring, which adds nearly a quarter of a pound to the clamp! If desired, you can easily attach additional weights—or a chain—to the rings for extra stimulation. Perfect for intermediate to more advanced players, you’re sure to love these budget-friendly clamps!  

  • Multi-use
  • Integrated O-rings
  • Adjustable
  • Visually impressive

  • A bit more pricey
  • No chain included
  • Fall off if loose
Bully Nipple Clamps
MaterialsMetal, rubber
Length2.5 inches
Diameter1.5 inches
FasteningClamp w/ adjustment screw
Weight0.45 lbs

The design these clamps use is fairly basic, but it’s very effective overall. As noted by some users, the main limitation you’ll run into with these clamps is how tight the clamps actually need to be to stay in place. Equipped with non-textured tips, these clamps tend to fall off if they’re not tightened enough. This makes the Bully Nipple Clamps a less appealing option to those who prefer lighter pressures. For those who prefer more pressure, however, the Bully Nipple Clamps are perfect. Offering a solid tug from the heavy rings with the option to add more weight later on, we think these clamps are a great budget-friendly buy for more pain-tolerant nipple play lovers!

How to Use Nipple Stretchers

Never used a nipple stretcher before? Here is a quick guide on how to get started enjoying your new toys!  

Prep Your Nipples

Prep Your Nipples

While you definitely can jump right to using a nipple stretcher, it may be a good idea to warm your nipples up a bit first. There are multiple ways to do this, but the easiest is simply by using your fingers (or your partner’s). Applying pressure to the area will help improve blood flow, increasing sensitivity and preparing you for the actual nipple stretcher placement.  

Mount the Stretchers

Mount the Stretchers

Once you feel appropriately warmed up, it’s time to mount the stretchers on your nipples! Exactly how the process works will vary depending on your specific nipple stretcher, but generally involves placing the clamps around your nipples and then tightening them until they stay in place.  

Adjust as Needed

Adjust as Needed

Sometimes because they fell off, other times because you simply want more “bite”. Either way, you may need to adjust your nipple stretcher. While some can be adjusted while worn, others may require you to take them off before you can adjust them. Regardless, make sure to adjust them as needed so you can enjoy your new stretcher to the fullest!  

How to Clean Nipple Stretchers

Cleaning your nipple stretchers is extremely easy! If your stretchers are made from silicone and metal, you can sterilize them by dropping them into a pot of boiling water for five minutes. Of course, never do this if your stretcher contains electrical components or other materials (like TPE)! Generally, sterilizing them is a bit unnecessary anyway, as a nipple stretcher isn’t for internal use. You should be fine with a basic cleaning, which only requires antibacterial soap and warm water. Clean the stretchers off with soap, then wash away any remaining soap using warm water. Pat your stretchers dry and then leave them out to air dry completely before storing them away. Never store your stretchers away while they’re still damp, as this can cause unnecessary bacterial buildup!


No, you can use a nipple stretcher as-is. However, many users enjoy adding additional chains and/or weights to their stretchers, which increases the intensity of the sensations.

They certainly can be, but not always. Depending on the stretchers and how they’re adjusted, the sensation will range from slight discomfort to an excruciating, sharp pinch!

In general, nipple stretchers are fairly safe. You’ll mainly need to keep an eye out for materials that could cause an allergic reaction (such as metal plating) and sub-par materials (such as tips containing phthalates).

Almost any type of sex toy can cause damage if improperly used. However, when it comes to nipple stretchers, you’re unlikely to cause any permanent damage with regular use. If your nipples are still feeling uncomfortable long after using them, we recommend reducing your intensity.

That choice is entirely up to you! While some expensive nipple stretchers charge more for being made from premium materials, others charge more for their intricate designs. That said, you can often find similar, near-same-quality items for less. Fortunately, nipple clamps generally aren’t very expensive!

What are Nipple Stretchers?

Nipple stretchers are a type of nipple clamp that’s designed to stretch the nipple out using a combination of tension and pressure. Essentially, any nipple clamp can be used as a nipple stretcher, provided that sufficient tension is applied. However, your success at permanently stretching your nipples will vary depending on the method you use. These toys come in a variety of different designs, ranging from beginner-friendly to more intense options.
