What type of nipple are you? (With descriptive diagram!)

AzealiaB AzealiaB
I just read this article on one of my favorite sites (link) and found out that I have puffy nipples! What type are you? See illustration below and descriptions!

NippleType

Normal

These nipples protrude a few millimeters from the areola at their regular state, but protrude further upon arousal, temperature changes, or tactile stimulation.

Flat

Flat nipples are not everted at their normal state. They are just like they sound: Flat; blending into the areola. Flat nipples will protrude, albeit less so than "normal" nipples, upon stimulation, temperature changes and arousal. Flat nipples have the ability to turn into "normal" nipples when breastfeeding draws them out.

Puffy

Puffy nipples have most of the same characteristics of "flat" nipples, the only difference being that in "puffy" nipples, the areola is raised up off the breast.

Inverted

Inverted nipples occur when the lactiferous ducts do not get properly stretched during puberty. Inverted nipples have a dimpled appearance, folding into the areola. Much like with flat nipples, inverted nipples can be drawn out from the body either through cosmetic surgery, breastfeeding, nipple shields, or sex toys like nipple clamps, all of which loosen up the tissue. There are three subcategories, or "grades," of inverted nipples.

Normal

These nipples protrude a few millimeters from the areola ... More
I had grade 2 inverted nipples until my second attempt at breast feeding where a 'nipple trainer' was used. Now they don't invert but aren't generally protruding.

Mine are "normal". I don't like that word, though. Normal denotes that everything else is abnormal and, therefore, wrong. That's not true. So I'm going to call them...basic. That sounds better. Lol.

My wife is 'normal' - although like others I find the term somewhat off the mark. My wife's breasts are very different in size (fairly 'normal') and large G/H cup - so her aureola are large - but proportionate. With all that taken into account her actual nipple is 'proportionate'. A woman with smaller breasts and the same nipple size may appear to have long nipples.

I realize the pole is just for fun - and everything is relative. Thanks for the pole and link.

My breasts aren't quite as large but I have DD's and my aerola and nipples are actually pretty big but since so are my breasts, they're proportionate and therefore "normal". So it really is all just relative.

I don't have 'pencil eraser' nipples. They barely protrude at all when erect, and they're not cylindrical. I called it short, but it's probably a combination short and puffy. My breasts are large, and extremely different in size--about a cup's difference. My areolas are also different in size to an extreme degree.

I hate my nipples/areolas.

Well, I have one flat and one that's inverted (stage 1). So this should have been multiple choice. LOL I think there's a lot of women that have only one inverted nipple out there.

I agree. I has basic cable nipples!

I guess mine's in between a 'normal' and a 'long'.

Curiouscat Curiouscat
Mine's normal but slightly 'puffy' I think. When I'm cold they aren't puffy at all and look just normal. So an in between.

I agree with you on the term "normal".

I have nipples. And that is the bottom line!!!

I'd say short and puffy. They don't annoy me too much, except when they get bumpy at times.

yeah i know, in science/medicine when reporting data you're never supposed to say "normal" but instead describe exactly what you see, cause "normal" means nothing at all...so instead of normal...pointy? always perky looking? lol. i wish mine were "normal" though, i only think my boobs are cute when my nipples are erect.

also forgot to add the descriptions of the types of inverted nipples:
Grade 1
These nipples can occasionally become everted from arousal, temperature changes, and stimulation. They can also protrude through manipulation by lightly squeezing fingers around the areola, a few centimeters behind the nipple. Grade 1 nipples will maintain protrusion without retracting. Breastfeeding is possible with Grade 1 nipples.
Grade 2
These nipples can be pulled out—though not as easily—through the same manipulation method as Grade 1 nipples. However, Grade 2 nipples retract back into the areola after finger pressure is released. Breastfeeding is possible with Grade 2 nipples, but will present problems.
Grade 3
These nipples are severely retracted into the areola, meaning they cannot be pulled out through physical manipulation, and typically require surgery in order to protrude. The milk ducts tend to be constricted, rendering breastfeeding impossible.

My wife has puffy nipples due to very large 36DD breasts. I love them just the way they are.

Like I said, I read it in Jezebel, a blog that I read often, a link to the article is included in the poll.

I think that labeling one of them "normal" is not helpful because there is nothing abnormal about having any other type, and we are all unique. But it is interesting to see myself fall into a category with others. Thanks for sharing.
