Raise your hand if you have floppy ear lobes! ::raises hand::
Having floppy ear lobes sure does make being obsessed with earrings a bit more difficult. As soon as I put on any earring with weight, my lobes droop forward and pull a Dumbo by flopping all over the place. But, wait – I have found a solution: earring back lifters!
They come in all shapes, sizes and types, including real gold and sterling silver for those of you with particularly sensitive or allergic ears! I saw an infomercial for them a couple of months ago, threw them on my Amazon list and promptly forgot about them…until they landed in my stocking at Christmas from my mom. And I’ve used them a ton ever since!
They work by stabilizing the back of your earlobe to hold the earring in place properly, so they face forward nice and proud! These have been a game changer for me and I’ve been recommending them to everyone, even though I recognize that not everyone has my particular issue. I mean, who wouldn’t want one less droopy thing on their body as they age?!
While they’d probably work for all earrings, I’ve only used them with the traditional pierced stud settings rather than the wired ones. Apparently I’m still okay with my ears flopping around with dangly earrings…though that may change in the near future now that I think about it!
