Most professional navel piercings are done in a standard 14g (gauge width) and pierced to fit the standard size 10mm and 11mm belly bars. All of our navel rings are supplied within the standard size range unless otherwise stated.
For non-standard size piercings, we have a collection of custom sizeable navel rings here.
All TummyToys® Sleepers are 14g gauge (as below) and are 7/16" in length - 11mm is shown on the diagram (left).
Full radius of the clasp when closed is 13.5mm edge to edge.
Only the solid gold and solid platinum TummyToys® clasps can be down sized.
Clasps can be down-sized (maximum 3mm shorter) or increased in size, custom sizes are an additional $40 for each peice and is available for solid gold and solid platinum only.
NB: There are NO refunds once we resize any product.
The listed length (inches" or millimetres as shown below) refers to the distance between the balls. It is the length of the piercing shaft in fractional inches/millimeters and not the length of the full body jewellery.
If you are unsure what size you are, measure a piece of navel jewellery that currently fits you correctly and assess which size show below will best fit. TIP: Most professional belly piercings are done at the standard 10mm to 11mm lengths. If your piercing was done sometime ago your piercing may have shrunk to a smaller size over the years.
As your belly grows, your navel piercing stretches. During this time, it is best to wear a flexible PTFE or Bio Flex belly ring to avoid irritation.
Tummy Toys pregnacy belly rings are a standard size 14 gauge - as per above sizing and are sold in the following lengths. Anything shorter is not recommended as you can optionally cut these belly rings to a smaller size anyway if they are far too long for your piercing. Our pregnancy belly rings are self threading and your purchase from TummyToys will include instructions on how to do this. For threading assistance please feel free to contact us.

Navel jewellery is measured by gauges. The higher the gauge the smaller the piercing. 14g is the standard size that fits most piercings. To go upto 12g (and wider) you will need to have your piercing stretched.
The majority of navel rings sold by Tummy Toys are sold in the standard 14g size unless otherwise specified. Tummy Toys have various sizes available in the UV Flex capitves range.
16g is actually a smaller piercing gauge then 14g. Often people who leave their piercing without jewellery for too long end up switching to a 16g as their piercing partially closes, however there are far less choices in belly button rings in a 16g so retaining your 14g piercing is much more beneficial.

“My TummyToy sterling silver sleeper belly ring was the purchase I ever made online. I was working at McDonalds and I was 15 and I thought your products were so cool and different I decided to make the (then) very extreme decision to actually purchase something from the internet! Haha! That was nearly 8 years ago now and I just took it out earlier today to give it a polish and realised how long it had been. I still love my belly ring dearly and have not taken it out other than for a clean. I just wanted to say that I still think your products are so cool and the quality is outstanding. Thank you for giving me my first and favourite internet purchase ever.“
“I had been having a lot of trouble with infections since I had my belly pierced eight months ago. I thought this may be due to the titanium in the cheaper style rings so purchased this silver one in the hope it would help. I'm pleased to report it has worked, so I will now be looking at getting the silver rings with gem stones.“
“I just recently found your website & I love it!!! I bought a sterling silver belly ring (I have an allergy to nickel & had a hard time finding these type of rings). I received my belly ring today & LOVE it!! It is so pretty & easy to put in!!! I just bought a charm to go with it & I can't wait for it to come in.“
“Just letting you know the present arrived yesterday for my partner’s birthday that I ordered earlier this week. She was extremely impressed and overwhelmed with the surprise. She cannot wait till we see each other in January to thank me for it. Again, thank you for the wonderful service and product that you provided.“
“I love my new products, the stainless steel sleeper belly ring and the saltwater silver Quartz sleeper charm look beautiful together, natural and classy! They are both extremely comfortable to wear and unlike belly bars they do not catch on clothing, especially high waisted items! I would recommend this product to anybody, in particular those whose piercings are prone to irritation or soreness.“
“Good morning Helene, The gift went very well and was quiet a surprise for my friends birthday. It finally arrived considering the issue we had with Australia Post, they weren't always too helpful, I have addressed that issue with them already, just awaiting for a reply from them. The service and support that you provided was extremely appreciated and professional, I thank you very much for that. I have liked the products and service from your company, which is obvious by me placing another order for my wonderful partner for her birthday which she will receive by the weekend, fingers cross. I have also been trying to do this while overseas with work, so the time difference is difficult. Thank you for everything and keep up the awesome work and customer service.“
“I got my navel pierced for my birthday last year and, as I am sure many of you know, these things heal relatively slowly, with fits and starts of irritation. I was using the original piercing jewelry (stainless steel barbell) but, of course, it would get caught on something every now and then and there would be another bout of irritation, Plus, stainless just isn't the same as gold or silver for me. I found Tummy Toys online and found the sleeper belly ring - silver and meant for comfort - and figured that I had to try it. Well, I order it and some other jewelry. I live in the U.S. and I was given a deliver by date of 10/9. The jewelry arrived about September 5th, which was great. But the silver sleeper belly ring is really the star. It is comfortable and doesn't get caught on clothing. The metal does not irritate my piercing. I am so happy! If you have trouble with irritating metal or jewelry that gets caught on clothing, Tummy Toys is a must buy!“
