Women's Nipples: Innies, Outies and Hairy, Too

What to do and when not to worry about changes in your nipples

 

Just as all breasts are different, so are all women's nipples. Women's nipples come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, and all sorts of degrees of sensitivity. Some girls' nipples stick out when they're cold or when they're aroused; other girls' don't. If yours do, and this bothers you, you can choose to wear a bra with a little bit of padding.

 

Some girls are born with what are called inverted or retracted nipples. Inverted nipples are like innie belly buttons: they stick inward instead of outward. Inverted nipples are totally normal. Only if adult women nipples have previously been outties turn inward should she be concerned and see her doctor. If this happens during puberty, however, it's normal, but let mom know what's going on.

 

Some girls also have dark hair around the nipple, in the area called the areola. This hair can be trimmed with scissors, done away with through electrolysis or left alone. Tweezing is not a good solution because it can lead to ingrown hairs or infections.

@mylittleducklife it's totally normal! If it makes you feel uncomfortable then you can shave, wax or get laser hair removal. But most likely your the only one who notices! Hope this helped! ~Purple Heart~

It's normal to grow hair everywhere, even on your boobs and stuff. We are mammals but not as hairy as other animals so it's okay if you grow hair at random places. :)

Is it normal for the skin around your nipples to get soft and puffy then stiff with tiny bumps
