Clear, straight nose retainer?

Does anyone know a website where I can order a clear straight nose retainer I don't want an L shaped one or anything. And I keep seeing ones that say gauge? But no I just want a regular one so I can hide my peircing for competitions for color guard. Help?!

    If the ads confuse you, then just remember that "gauge" refers to the thickness of a wire. (Counter-intuitively, the higher the number, the thinner the wire is.)

    The gauge refers to the thickness of your nose stud. It's probably 20g or 18g, but ask your piercer or use a set of calipers if you're unsure.

    you're no longer meant to place them in (or swap any jewelery) till the piercing is totally healed. After which you're golden. be careful nevertheless retainers tend to get caught definitely on issues like towels and it hurts like a ***** if it gets yanked or pulled on.
