This blog is by people with breasts, for people with breasts. This blog is inclusive of all people with breasts, regardless of gender. It celebrates the beautiful diversity of breasts, of all sizes, shapes, colours, ages and races. Breasts are such an important and integral part of what makes us feel beautiful and sexual. By showing how all breasts are different, and uniquely special, we will be able to challenge the beliefs around what makes breasts beautiful. There is no single standard for breast beauty! By sharing photos we are demonstrating how every breast is different, and in turn, we will be able to help people with breasts feel better about themselves, improve self-esteem, and show that yes, you are normal.
NOTE: This blog shows photos depicting nudity in a non-sexual setting, and contains written content with adult themes. Photo submissions showing nudity are to be from people 18+ only.
That I can’t answer. I’d suggest you try another fitter and see if you get different results. I’m certainly not an expert in bra fitting. Maybe other readers have something more sensible than me.
You’re not hideous! Your breasts are fine. You could just do with being professionally fitted.
Feeling bad about your body sadly affects so many people. How you handle your feelings is something only you can control. But you can be influenced, positively or negatively, by the messages you receive, from other people and the media. My best advice is to arm yourself with as much unbiased, evidence-based knowledge as possible, and try to let your logical mind guide your feelings. Rational knowledge is power. I hope my site can help you on your path to knowing yourself better by telling the truth about body diversity, and in turn help you appreciate that you really are ok.
I don’t know whether piercing is “good” for them but I’ve heard from a few people who have written in and said that their piercing kept their nipple held outwards.
From what I’ve read, piercing is sometimes recommended by cosmetic surgeons as a first step, especially if you can can evert (pop out) the nipple but then it springs back to being inverted. Piercing with a bar holds the nipple out. Sometimes after several months the short milk ducts can lengthen and may allow the nipple to stay everted. But not always, and in some people with the bar removed, the nipple will go back to being inverted.
Here are a couple of before and after pictures I found.
It’s not without risks though, including pain, infection, difficulty in lining up the entry and exit points, and possibly affecting your ability to breastfeed - however having surgery to pop them out involves cutting milk ducts which significantly increases those risks.
It’s your body and your decision of course. Approximately 10% of people have inverted nipples. Personally I think inverted nipples are amazingly cool, and would be delighted to be with someone who had them.
I am by no means an expert on this (or anything else for that matter), but from what I’ve read it doesn’t matter at all. Babies breastfeed, not nipple feed. Babies latch onto the areola, not the nipple.
I’m really happy that you found your way here and that you now realise that you’re ok, just the way you are. Thanks for writing to let me know, and you are very welcome :)
I really don’t know what that could be. It might be best to see your doctor to be sure.
