The breast is the tissue overlying the chest (pectoral) muscles. Women’s breasts are made of specialized tissue that produces milk (glandular tissue) as well as fatty tissue. The amount of fat determines the size of the breast.
The milk-producing part of the breast is organized into 15 to 20 sections, called lobes. Within each lobe are smaller structures, called lobules, where milk is produced. The milk travels through a network of tiny tubes called ducts.
The ducts connect and come together into larger ducts, which eventually exit the skin in the nipple. The dark area of skin surrounding the nipple is called the areola.
Connective tissue and ligaments provide support to the breast and give it its shape. Nerves provide sensation to the breast. The breast also contains blood vessels, lymph vessels, and lymph nodes.
- A small bra
A lot of women think that it looks sexier wearing a bra which is 1 or 2 numbers smaller than the adequate size. Nonetheless, this is not recommendable as you are actually causing serious discomfort and possible damage of the breasts.
- Not wearing a bra while running
A lot of women feel a lot freer when they don’t wear a bra while running. However, this can cause serious problems for the connective tissue in the breasts.
- Clutching chest
The breasts must never be punched roughly or harshly treated in any other way as they can get damaged easily.
- Warts removal
Hairs around the nipple area are a common notion in women, so a lot of them remove them on a regular basis. Nonetheless, if you tend to remove these hairs very often, there is a risk of the hairs becoming thicker and more visible in the future, as well risk of serious inflammations.
Very often, when people are intimate, they practice nipple pinching. However, this could sometimes have serious consequences.
- Nipple piercings
Breaking the nipples in order to put a piercing doesn’t only look dangerous, but it is, as it can cause severe pneumonia!
