316L Stainless Steel Single Flared Plug Pair: 1mm to 10mm for Dead Stretching or Daily Wear
These domed single flare 316L stainless steel pairs are perfect for those looking for either:
- a hypoallergenic stainless steel daily wear option in their current size,
- a 1mm incremental dead stretching option for those sizing up
What's the difference between tapering and dead stretching?
Dead stretching, or single flared stretching, is the process of stretching your piercing(s) slowly simply by inserting the next size up in 1mm increments and letting the weight of the jewelry assist in the stretching process. For many, dead stretching with rounded single flare plugs is a totally painless stretching process vs. the "jump" in sizing that you might experience with tapers. While tapering with acrylic tends to be less expensive, dead stretching might be worth the investment if your stretching journey has plateaued and you can't *quite* get to your goal size.
What do I get?
Each set contains 1 pair (2 items total) of 316L stainless steel plugs. Dead stretch pairs are single flared (larger on the face than the wearable area) and come with clear o-rings to hold them in place.
All in on dead stretching but not sure what to order?
As an example, someone who is currently wearing 2g (6mm) plugs with a goal size of 00g (10mm) could order this listing in 7mm, 8mm, 9mm and 10mm. Start by wearing the 7mm pair for ~2 weeks, swap for the next size up when lobes have loosened enough. Everyone's skin elasticity is different, move at a pace that is comfortable for you.
Please double check your sizes before finalizing your order, as we are unable to accept exchanges or returns on body jewelry per health code.
