On Friday a flock of giant breasts are floating down Amsterdam's canals for International Women's Day. The creative agency finds it strange that simply having a pair of breasts seems to be disruptive. You still can't post any pictures showing nipples on Facebook or Instagram for example if not showing breastfeeding or, say, mastectomy scars. Too big, too small, too old, too young - boobs are judged, inspected, grabbed and censored. At 72andSunny Amsterdam, we believe all breasts are wonderfully equal.
If you're reading descriptions about breast concerns, you may catch yourself trying to recall anatomy lectures that occurred many decades ago. What are the parts of the outer breast including the nipple, areola, Montgomery glands , and other structures? What is the purpose of these different parts and what medical conditions may affect them? When it comes to breast anatomy, your nipple is the crowning touch. Your nipple is at the business end of the breast milk system, the first place a newborn baby will seek out. What's inside your nipple and areola? Let's take a look at the inner workings of your outermost breast anatomy.
Like most parts of the body, breasts can be sore from time to time. Not only for girls, but for guys too. You may be worried about your body's development, about what causes breast soreness, and even about cancer. If you're a girl, you may have noticed a slightly sore feeling when you wash your breasts in the shower. Or maybe you felt an ache when you've rolled onto your stomach in bed.
The breast is one of two prominences located on the upper ventral region of the torso of primates. In females, it serves as the mammary gland , which produces and secretes milk to feed infants. At puberty , estrogens , in conjunction with growth hormone , cause breast development in female humans and to a much lesser extent in other primates. Breast development in other primate females generally only occurs with pregnancy.
