      Looks right to me Grace but sopposedly theyre meant to go in so far that you dont notice them but them earplugs you have look fairly big so I wouldnt say theyre meant to go in much further.

      Not at all, they have to be inserted deeper in your ears, you just inserted 50% of the plug on this picture.

      No theyre not big at all you basically squish them until theyre really thin insert them into your ear and give it about a minute.They eventually poof back out making a comfortable and tight fit and theyre not noticeable to other people as they are flush with your ear canal.They dont stick out like your ones do.I bought these in a chemist and theyre much better than anything I got off the net.

      Ok cool im basically at the point where
      Im gonna order all types of earplugs
      Until one fits... It just sucks tho cause most foam ones dont fit me and they provide the most protection but
      Ill give those a try thanks :)

      Maybe their a bit too big for your ears. Try to find size Small or Medium. If you want to order, then you can try Noizess proguard that has sizes S, M, L XL. They are good and not very visible. Although the stupid filters are red and orange- they should be transparent:mad:

      find whst suits you best but I advise you to either wear at least 30 db plugs to the wedding or if you want bring two pairs: one weaker and the other stronger. Maybe you can keep your hair open so that it will cover the plugs.
