Stretching your ear lobes is a slow, delicate process that's made easier with the right jewelry stretching kit.
Choosing a style of plug
Picking out a jewelry stretching kit makes the process of lobe enlarging go easier as you'll have an assortment of jewelry sizes that'll help you reach your goal. As you might be wearing these pieces for a while, it's important to choose a style you like, such as straight, curved, spiral, or tunnel.
Straight tapers resemble a spike: One side is thin and gradually becomes thicker. When worn, they create a hip look, all while slowly stretching your lobes. As with any style of stretching jewelry, they're available in a vast array of colors and patterns, including solids, striped, or even clear.
Similar to straight tapers, curved varieties start out straight before bending. They function the same as any other taper but offer a distinct look.
Spiral tapers are the most visually interesting. Also called a snail plug due to their shape, these fashionable pieces are also available in shapes that resemble wings, numbers, or letters.
