3. Why Are Some Women's Areolas Brown and Others Pink?

(Your reaction) Thank you!

It's interesting that women come in different shapes and sizes, and the same is true about the area around the breast.

Areolas come in various shapes and sizes, yet, they are often described as pink or brown. Although it might seem logical to assume that race determines areola color, but that's not always true. African American women and Latino females can have pink areolas, and Anglo females can have brown. What determines areola color is a person's skin pigmentation mixed with hormone fluctuations.
