Here’s an overview of our commonly asked questions. If you can’t find the answer you need here, please contact our Customer Care Team for assistance.

This shape and measure is ideal because:

  • the nipple is perfectly contained without preassure;
  • thinner cups tend to slip from the correct position and move inside the bra


Many mothers with larger measurements, typically over a C cup size and an areola with a diameter exceeding 4.5 cm, request a slightly larger size. To meet their needs, Silverette® XL was created.
Silverette® was created in collaboration with the Padua University in Italy in 2007 and has assisted many new mothers in tending to their nipples.
Many questionable copycat products have appeared on the market since its launch. Note that these nursing cups are classified as Medical Class 1 items that conform to all MDD Regulation 745/2017 rules. We have gained knowledge that many imitated products do not conform to the required standards. Therefore, it is essential to ensure that the selling company can provide evidence that their products are compliant.
Although we encourage new businesses, it is crucial to be highly cautious about other products.
 Ask yourself these questions:
  • Is the product made of genuine 925 silver?
  • Is it made of pure silver, or is it a laminated version?
  • If it is a laminated version, what are the other accompanying materials?
  • Do the products have copper or nickel, which might lead to skin reactions?
  • Are they classified as a Medical Device class 1?
  • Is the company registered in the European Union?

925 Silver is the purest form of silver that can be molded into shape. With the purest 999 silver it is just possible to laminate or silver plate objects made from other materials which could give allergic reactions (for example silver plated copper). Our silver is certified, and in conformity of all the applying laws and medical device directives.

The refolded edges are crucial for the ease of the extremely sensitive skin in that region. Unfolded edges may cause irritation or even cut your delicate skin.

925 Silver is the most refined type of silver that can be moulded into shape. Pure 999 silver can only be used to laminate or plate other metal materials. This means that objects made of other materials are simply coated with a thin layer of silver due to its cost-effectiveness. An object made of 999 silver would be too delicate, with a high risk of structural alterations or potential breakage of these fragile products.

No need, but if you think your baby is bothered by the scent of milk residue, we recommend rinsing your nipples gently with warm water.

No, it is not possible to wash them in the dishwasher & will cause damage of the Sliverette® Cups.

No, disinfectants could damage silver.

They are available in two sizes
