about boobies - October 17th 2013, 08:40 PM

Okay, so this is a super embarrassing topic for me, but I have really big areolas. Like, they're a good 2.5" (that's 6.35cm) and any time someone sees me naked, I get really self-conscious.
Does anyone know why that happens and if it's bad and if there's any way to make them smaller?
I feel like I have pepperoni nips

“I can only hope that they’ll turn that anger and frustration and madness into something positive, so that two, three, four, five hundred will step forward, so the gay doctors will come out, the gay lawyers, the gay judges, gay bankers, gay architects … I hope that every professional gay will say ‘enough’, come forward and tell everybody, wear a sign, let the world know. Maybe that will help.” Harvey Milk, 1978

Hey there! I'm sorry to hear that you feel self-conscious about your areolas.

Basically, there's nothing at all bad about large areolas in terms of the functioning of your body. The only way to make them smaller is cosmetic surgery, which is a rather drastic (and possibly expensive) option.

As for being naked and self-conscious, about the only advice I can offer is to try to be comfortable in your own body. If anyone looks at you and makes bad comments? Ditch them, they're not worth wasting your time with.

Feel free to email/PM/VM/whatever me if you want. I'll answer as soon as I can.

It's nothing to worry or feel self-conscious about. I can't think of anyway that would make it possible for you to change them other than surgery as stated but I don't think it's necessary, everyones are different and there is no need to feel like it's bad. If anyone says anything about it, then they clearly aren't worth your time.
