Buying Guide of Sleeper Earrings

what kind of earrings are comfortable to sleep in

When someone tries to buy earrings for his/her newly pierced ears, he should have some major information or factors in his mind. We will help you know about such things through a buying guide you can easily trust.

 Hypoallergenic earrings for sleep in 

The sleeper earrings you are going to buy must be made with such material that is purely hypoallergenic. What the real meaning of hypoallergenic is that the earrings should be made of metals that don’t create any allergies or infections.

These hypoallergenic sleeper earrings are always made with premium quality metals such as 18k or 24k gold, sterling silver, and platinum, etc. They are soft metals that suit the newly pierced sensitive ears.

 Shape of Earrings 

If you are buying earrings for your newly pierced ears, you must be a little choosier not only about their stuff and material but also about their size and shape. A good sleeper earring should be as simple as possible. These earrings must have no intrigue style. There should be no sharp edges or pointed areas. These sharp or pointed surfaces can damage your earlobe. These types of earrings may rip your skin off.

Always keep this crucial step of piercing that you cannot compromise on your comfort level. Some companies appeal to people only because of their stylized products that catch our attention instantly. But an authentic and well-known company never compromises on quality and shape that will ease their customers.

 Length and Weight of an Earring 

Always select earrings that are light-weight and small. A heavy-weight earring can rip your skin and it can cause serious harm to your ears.

Make a sensible decision for your newly pierced ears because you can’t risk your ears. Your sleeper earrings must be small in size. Long and dangling earrings are not only heavy but also can entangle in your hair and cause serious problems.

Things to Know Before Buying Earrings to Sleep In

Everyone wants to look great and cool in the eyes of people. But the one who is pierced newly should be conscious before purchasing any.

Here are some tips you should keep in mind while trying to buy sleeper earrings.

  • The earrings must be of small size.
  • They must have strong a lock system.
  • The earrings must be comfortable enough not to harm your ears.
  • The company should give the guarantee not to use any cheap metals for alloys like nickel or cobalt.
  • The earrings should be light-weight and have no excess use of any stones.
  • It is better to buy sleeper earrings from some well-known company or online store as Amazon.
  • The earrings should be according to your face cut.
  • Try to buy the sleeper earrings within your budget.
  • These earrings that we can wear day and night will almost stick to our ears so that they may not irritate while we are in bed.

Is it Ok to sleep with earrings in?

The answer to this question is yes. Yes, you can sleep with your earrings in. The only thing you have to keep in mind is that your casual or sleeper earrings will fulfill all the requirements of your sleep routine.

We lose consciousness while sleeping so the earrings we buy must be comfortable and relaxing. They must be small in size and carry minimum weight.

It’s not a big deal to sleep with earrings In if we follow some typical steps as follows.

  • Complete guide and research can help you a lot.
  • Prefer comfort over fashion in the early stages of your piercing.
  • Never compromise on quality over saving.
  • Your bed should also be very cozy and soft.
  • Take a pillow of soft fur that can become a source of ease for you.
  • Make a habit to change your position during sleep so that pressure on both sides may get balance.

Should i take my earrings out to sleep?

Girls do fashion and make themselves stylized. But I think simplicity has its grace whether in clothing or jewelry.

All the great artists from Madonna To Angelina Jolie like to be simple and decent. But the question arises whether we can sleep with earrings or by taking them off.

It is good to take your earring’s pff when you go to bed. But if you are a person with newly pierced ears, you should avoid doing so.

In such cases, you can take some steps to avoid the risk of pain and damage. You can have u shaped pillow that can fix your ears.

You can also change your sleeping position. Don’t take a side sleep but prefer to sleep straight or from the back.

The earring backing should be as soft and round-shaped as rubber.

What could happen if you sleep with earrings?

It is good to look appealing and charming. It is the right of everyone. But there is always some risk and tension hidden in every fashion. The same problem you can face during having earrings for your newly pierced ears.  Let’s have a look at these problems shortly.

Torn Skin Disease 

Everyone loses consciousness while he/she is sleeping. It is a natural factor that you can harm your newly pierced if your hair gets caught in your beddings or even hair.If your earrings are long or dangling, the risk can increase that they may tear your skin off.

Headaches Problem

People have health issues. Some have allergies. Some ace headache issues. When such people get their ears pierced, they can increase the problem of their headaches. The reason behind this is very general.

When we sleep having earrings, they may press the side of our brain. If it is a continuous issue, then you may start to feel your headache again. Wearing long, dangling, and drop-like earrings may increase your headache issue.

The only thing we can do to resolve this matter is to put off our earrings. If the issue remains unsolved, then we can consult our doctor.

Different Kind of Infections 

It is good to wear some earrings for so long time that the piercing gets healed. But it is very terrible that we wear our earrings without any precautions. If we don’t clean our ear and earrings routinely, they may cause infections badly such as:

  • Pain
  • Puss
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Soreness
  • Fever(sometimes)

Allergic Reactions

The use of earrings that have some nickel in their make can become a reason for allergic reactions. An earring that we wear continuously will cause allergies for our ears.

We should never compromise on quality. Try using earrings made up of gold or sterling silver.

How to Do it safely?

When we get our ears pierced, we first consult our piercer that what kind of earrings will suit our earrings weather it is hoop of stud earrings you can sleep in. We can buy such earrings that may remain comforting for our ears.

  • A stud with a small post is a good option as the risk of damage decreases.
  • But still, it exists. Sometimes our earrings can tangle with our clothes, beddings, and hair. It will be a source of pain and rupture.
  • We can wear our earrings taking certain precautionary steps as to consult our doctor.
  • Secondly, we remain careful in our choice-making.
  • We can select simple and decent over heavy and complex style.
  • We can try avoiding sleep at the sides because side-sleep may sore your ears.
  • We can develop a habit to sleep straight or on our back which can lessen the damage factor.

Can you take out new ear piercing?

If you are in a mood to get pierced your ears, you should consult a professional piercer. Piercing can also be done at home, but there is too much risk that you can hurt yourself. It may also get wrong and away from the target.

It is good to get yourself pierced by a professional as he may have good and sterilized gadgets to get you pierced.

You must take your full time to make your ears healed. If some problem occurs and you need to put the earrings off, don’t do it on your own. Instead, you should go and ask your piercer about your problem.

If your new piercing off your ears, it will instantly get closed. As we know that a newly pierced ears heal instantly after taking off the earrings within 6 to 8 months minimum.

If you find your earrings problematic within the period of healing, you should go and consult your doctor/piercer about the issue. It is also recommended that you must avoid playing and moving your earrings. It can become a serious problem for you.

When to See A Doctor

If someone follows all the instructions told by his piercer or doctor about his/her newly pierced ears, he needs not consult his doctor. If we take perfect care of our ears, then our ears will heal soon and we can change our earrings after the required time.

But if we feel some pain or bleeding from our ears, then it is good to consult a doctor in certain states such as:

  • If you feel continuous itching on the infected area.
  • If you see your ear becoming red and causing you pain.
  • If the pierced area starts to bleed by and by.
  • If some liquid starts to come out with a smell like a puss.
  • If there is swelling all around the pierced area.
  • A continuous irritation can cause harm.
  • If your headache awakes due to the piercing.

These are all the symptoms that make anyone instantly visit the doctor.


Tips for sleeping with newly pierced ears

It is again a good thing to discover how we can move with our newly pierced ears. The same is the case when we go to bed. There are certain precautionary steps we should take while going to bed with our new sensitive pierced ears.

Avoid Sleeping on The Same Side as your Piercing

Everyone who is newly pierced should keep acting on the doctor’s advice. They should never sleep on the same side because doing so will lead/them to some damage. Our ears face a lot of problems if we keep sleeping on the same side. The pressure increases at that side and many serious issues as infection and headache occur.

Keep Your New Piercing Clean

It is a good habit to clean your piercing daily. By doing so, we not only kill germs but also make our earrings clean and sterile. You can also add some lubricant to your ears and earrings that can make them move comfortably.

Avoid Using Certain Headphones

Another thing that we don’t care about is using headphones. It is very alarming that we use headphones carelessly when we get our ears pierced. This may cause our ears to start soring. It may also get your ears infected. Especially headphones with full covers can be a risk to the sensitive ears.

How to Sleep With Earrings Comfortably?

How do you feel at the end of the day? Do you still have the energy to put off your earrings and then go to sleep or you prefer bed instantly after reaching home?

You can do both things to put off or keep wearing your earrings for sleep. But the question arises that what kind of earrings and situation one must have that he #/she can sleep comfortably.

Studs are More Preferable Than Other Earrings
