Innies, outies, big or small, all women have nipples.

What may be useless appendages on men (why do men have nipples anyway?) are of huge significance to the female body.

And you probably should know more about those little nubs on your breasts than you do.2

Here are some pertinent facts about your nipples:

1. Everybody’s Nipples Are Different

One of the most important facts about nipples to know is that there is no such thing the ‘perfect’ pair.

No two nipples are alike and that is completely normal.

Some women’s areolas are big;

some women’s are small.

Some women’s have little smooth bumps on them, some women’s don’t.

It is really important for body confidence that you do not feel like you are the odd one out.

Rest assured that absolutely everybody’s nipples are different shapes and sizes and that is completely fine.

2. Milk Production

The two distinct features that are unique to female mammals, including humans, are our hair and our ability to product milk from our breasts.

Each of our nipples has approximately 15 to 20 miniscule openings, some of which are connected to milk ducts.

The little white bumps on your nipples are there to let you know exactly where these little openings are, and when the time comes and you have a child, this is where the milk will be excreted from.

3. Innie Vs. Outtie

Inverted nipples are actually a fairly common occurrence for many women across the world.

Between ten and twenty percent of woman have inverted nipples and they are caused by shorter than usual milk bearing ducts.2

Inverted nipples lay flat against the breast or even slightly pulled in.

Don’t let this worry you;

inverted nipples pose absolutely no health risks, but they may cause an obstacle for new mothers wanting to breast feed.
