Small or big, standing or falling, fair or dark, whatever shape, size and colour it comes in, a woman’s breasts are beautiful, absolutely. C’mon, how can things so soft and succulent not be?
Here are some facts you most probably never knew about the breasts:
1.Your two breasts aren’t exactly the same
Your breasts are similar in a lot of ways but not perfectly symmetrical. Sometimes one of the breasts is bigger than the other, usually the left. Some people use the lines, ‘the breasts are sisters not twins’.
2. Breasts are made up of glands and fat, no muscle
Breasts sit on top of the pectoral muscles, but breasts themselves don’t have any muscle in them. Each breast contains between 15 and 20 sections called lobes, each of which is composed of many smaller structures known as glands or alveoli.
3. They get all the attention
Sometimes people notice your breasts before your face.
4.Your nipples are so sensitive, breast stimulation alone can make you have an orgasm
Self explanatory yeah? Your nipples are so sensitive you could have a mind blowing orgasm from stimulation alone.
5. It’s natural for your nipple to have an ‘odd’ shape
The nipples can be pointed up or down, appear flat, puffy or inverted, be dark or pale, be big or small, etc.
6. There are eight types of nipples
Yes, you read that. There are eight types of nipples! The nipples could be bumpy, flat, hairy, inverted, protruding, puffy or supernumerary. I bet you didn’t know. Go check which yours is.
7. Your nipples can change colour
Pregnancy can make your nipples get darker. By about 12 weeks of the pregnancy, the skin of the nipple and areola may start to darken or ‘pigment’.
8. Everyone can get breast cancer; male or female
Just like women’s, the men’s breast have cells and tissues that can develop cancer. The men’s breast cancer is very rare though.
9. The most obvious sign of breast cancer is breast lumps
Other signs include swelling of all or part of a breast, skin irritation or dimpling, breast or nipple pain, nipple retraction, redness, scaliness, or thickening of the nipple or breast skin, nipple discharge etc.
