sagging nipples and procrastination...

While I am procrastinating the work I need to do in my Western Civ course, I thought I would ask for some advice...
I can't seem to find a 12-step to help me out...
I have sagging nipples. The nipples are not a problem in themselves, but they chafe and get raw on the underside where skin is touching skin. Then I have a little crease that hurts like heck.
I tried wearing bras, not wearing bras, neosporin, etc. I really don't want to have to deal with this for the rest of my life. Does anyone else in the world have this problem or am I a freak of nature? They never tell you about these sorts of things.

I don'y have the problem but I'm pretty darn sure I will once the milkworks dry up. am I correct in my assesment that underside of nipple is rubbing torso skin? Try dusting torso skin with slippery elm powder (you can get it in healthfood stores in capsules). it sooths skin and acts like a talc. good luck. You're not a freak...I was at a LLL conference and took a "body image and nursing" class and one woman was talking about ( and she was seriuos) having to roll up her flat empty breasts and put them in her bra cup....oy, ya, they don't tell you about this sruff

I have little boobs (and nipples). The nipple is simply folded down n the areola. LIttle tiny raw spot, but very sensitive...
I think I will try the slippery elm powder. Worth a try.
If I rolled up my breasts, They would look like sausages! I knew small boobs would be easier later in life. Nyah to all those girls who teased me in the stupid locker room....

this totally made me laugh! Dang, it also made me feel rather thankful to have nipples that do not reach the torso....
I was thinking maybe someone makes a little nipple sling that helps to retrain your nipples into an upright position. Oh wait, that's called icy-hot, right? :)

I squished mine into a nipple/torso position too, to see how it would be possible

I can totally imagine the boobs you were describing because they are on my body. HAHAHAHAHAAA. My boobs now hang like tube socks down to my waist. they look nice next to the huge varicose viens on my legs. I am only 28.

I bet a lot of people would wait to have kids a little longer. Maybe I should start printing this stuff for my 16 year old cousin...

I know you're not nursing, but have you tried a nursing pad? Or a padded bra a size too small? Seems like it would squish em up higher and stop the chafing... A friend of mine has huge nipples that stick waaaay out, so she has to use adhesive bandages on windy days.

oh, I'll be joining you soon enough. If I put my chin to my chest, my nipples are even with my belly button. so I'm sure when these bags are empty, my nipples will chafe on my knees. Someone please tell me they might be the same size again someday. I don't care what size, just something similar, so I can actually buy a bra.

every once and a while I will see someone with a terrifically bad boob job and am always immediately thankfull for my national geographic tits! I can't wait to see what shape my tits will be in if I have another kid. I'm sure at that point I'll be able to tie them in a bow instead of wearing a bra. If yours don't return to the same size, perhaps that will be an option?
