Best of all, knowing how to measure your bust will make adjusting to changes in your breasts from losing or gaining weight, hormone fluctuations, aging, pregnancy, and more so much less stressful.

Areola, more generally, is a small circular area on the body with a different histology from the surrounding tissue , or other small circular areas such as an inflamed region of skin.

Other small openings in the areola are sebaceous glands , known as Montgomery's glands.
