breasts usually continue to grow until you’re 17 or 18 years old -- or even into your 20s.
Sometimes one breast grows faster than the other, although the slower one usually catches up.
Your nipples also change during puberty. They can become pink or dark brown, turned inward or out. Sometimes hairs grow around them.
