  • Your Answer:
  • Correct Answer:

If you’ve ever wished bras came in mix-and-match cup sizes, you’re not alone. In one small study, 44% of women said one breast is smaller than the other. And that’s just volume. When you take nipple size and breast shape into account, a whopping 88% of women report a difference up top.

  • Your Answer:
  • Correct Answer:

It’s true: Some people have more than two nipples. About 1% of women get them, and twice as many men. But they’re often smaller than other nipples. They show up at birth, usually along the body’s “milk line” -- somewhere between shoulders and legs. It’s rare, but they can form on other parts of the body, including the forehead and foot.

  • Your Answer:
  • Correct Answer:

It’s normal to have a few small hairs on the areolae, or the dark skin around your nipple. If it bothers you, clip it with small scissors. Skip plucking or shaving, which can cause ingrown hairs and infection.

Can you reach orgasm from nipple play only?

Can you reach orgasm from nipple play only?

  • Your Answer:
  • Correct Answer:

“Nipplegasms” are real. Nipples are full of nerves, and MRI tests show that fondling them “lights up” the same part of the brain that’s linked to your genitals. This means that for some women, getting to second base is as much fun as going to home plate.

A breast is:

  • Your Answer:
  • Correct Answer:

Organs have a purpose. The breast’s job? Making milk. It’s created in small lobules inside the breast, and a series of ducts carry it out through the nipple. Fun fact: Men don’t have these lobules, since they don’t breastfeed.

How much weight does breast milk add?

How much weight does breast milk add?

  • Your Answer:
  • Correct Answer:

The average breast weighs between 5.3 and 7 ounces. A breast that’s full of your baby’s meals can weigh as much as 17 ounces. No wonder your back hurts.

Breastfeeding makes your breasts sag.

Breastfeeding makes your breasts sag.

  • Your Answer:
  • Correct Answer:

Nursing does not, in fact, make your breasts head south. Sagging is another prize for getting older. As your breast tissue ages, it loses firmness and elasticity. Smoking, multiple pregnancies, and changes in your weight can also make breasts droop.

Nipple leakage is normal.

Nipple leakage is normal.

  • Your Answer:
  • Correct Answer:

Discharge during late pregnancy, after giving birth, and if you’re breastfeeding is fine. Any other time, it’s not. A leak can signal a number of things, from thyroid and other hormone problems to cancer, so get it checked out by a doctor.

How many women have on the correct size bra?

How many women have on the correct size bra?

  • Your Answer:
  • Correct Answer:

Up to 85% of women wear bras that don’t fit. That’s not good, because a lack of proper support for “the girls” can lead to poor posture, neck and back pain, and even nerve problems in your arms and shoulders.

 

Your breasts change size -- a lot. Your weight, pregnancy, and menopause affect the size and type of support you need. Get measured to find the right fit. A pro at a department or lingerie store is your best bet, but a trusty measuring tape works, too.

Most women are happy with their breasts.

Most women are happy with their breasts.

  • Your Answer:
  • Correct Answer:

The grass is greener on the other bustline. Fewer than a third of women ages 18 to 65 are pleased with the size and shape of their breasts. Plastic surgery stats back that up -- breast augmentation was the No. 1 cosmetic surgical procedure in 2013. Since 2000, the number of breast implants has grown by 37%, and the number of breast lifts has grown by 70%.
