That About Should Know truths

Growing up in a conservative environment, I wasn't taught much about my body. All I knew about breasts were that they start to grow when a woman hits puberty, that you should wear a bra when they do, and that they were a food source for babies. There were no other explanations or discussions, so I had a lot of unanswered questions when I began to notice the changes in my body. No one was willing to talk to me because boobs were and often still are treated as a taboo topic in the Philippines.

It was only later on that I learned more about my body from talking with my friends and no-filter discussions with the other PV girls. Because October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we decided to share that discussion here and hopefully encourage talking about female health and sexuality as normal and healthy. If you've ever wondered if your boobs are normal or not, this article is for you.

Pink nipples are normal, and so are other colors

Don’t be fooled into believing that pink nipples are the only color available! Much like our eye color or skin color, nipples come in different shades of pinks to browns. Some people have naturally light pink ones, while others have them in a deep, dark brown. That's why the recent meme about your nipple color being the perfect nude lipstick shade for you isn't always true!

Additionally, areolas (the pigmented area surrounding the nipple) can naturally change its color depending on a woman’s age, hormone levels, or whether you’re pregnant or breastfeeding. They also usually darken with age.

The darkening of both areolas are normal, but if the color change can only be seen on one breast, then it is best to consult your doctor and have it checked.

Fun Fact: Did you know that the Benefit Benetint was originally created to be used as a nipple tint?

There are "innie" and "outie" nipples, too

Nipples that revert in instead of protruding out are called inverted nipples. It's also possible to have one of each kind! Whichever one you have is perfectly normal - if it has been like that ever since you can remember. But if you suddenly notice having inverted nipples when you didn’t have them before, it's best to schedule an appointment with your doctor to check for the possible cause and ensure that there no negative changes.
