The ramblings and obsessions of a longtime Avon lady


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!

Have you tried earring back lifters?  Do you have another beauty or fashion secret weapon?  Drop a comment below and share the knowledge!

      They are the BEST! Depending on which ones you get, they aren’t terribly expensive and one set can be used for all of your earrings!


  2. I don’t get floppy ear lobes? Do you mean those big holes people get in their ears?

      No, though they technically count. I’m talking about people who have droopy or floppy earlobes that are made painfully obvious when they wear earrings. Some people have stiffer/stronger earlobes that can withstand the weight of an earring without wanting to lay down and give up, then there are peeps like me. My earlobes look normal until you thread an earring through them and realize there’s no support to the skin whatsoever.

      This post likely doesn’t apply to you…unless you enjoy wearing heavy earrings.

  4. I found these as well and they have helped immensely since I have a lot of over-sized fashion earrings that hang heavy. They are a godsend.
