But it doesn't have to.
And you can help.
Ever used a breast pump?
For 8 out of 10 women, it really sucks. For 15% it's straight-up damaging.
Why? Because data on nipple sizes just doesn’t exist (unless it’s to design the “perfect” breast, or algorithms to censor women’s bodies on social media).
And you can’t design a comfy pump without it.
The solution? It's your nipples.
Got nipples, 2 minutes and a ruler?
You can change how women experience pumping by sharing your measurements.
It’s anonymous, and you don’t need to have pumped, breastfed, or have kids.
What'll you do with my data?
We’ll use your (anonymous) nipple measurements to build an international nipple encyclopedia.
We'll use that encyclopedia to advocate for better design for women - and design products that don't leave us in pain.
