In the grand scheme of life, the way your vagina looks doesn’t really matter. I mean, yeah, if it’s oozing weird discharge that smells off and it looks like you have a rash, you’ve got a problem and should go to a doctor. But if you’ve always had a vagina with long lips, it’s okay. If you’ve noticed that your lips seem to be “puffier” or “fatter” than the lips of a porn star you saw once, you’re fine. Just like any other body part, there are a lot of different types of vaginas, and everyone’s is different. Every body is unique, which is pretty cool when you think about it. You will probably never meet anyone with a body just like you, which makes you ~one of a kind~. It’s cheesy but whatever, you get it.
This is easy to see with your outside physical appearance, but it’s harder to realize that when it comes to genital areas. You probably don’t really know what other people’s vaginas look like, since they are not super out in the open all the time, so the only type of vagina you have to reference is your own. You see “perfect” vaginas in porn or on celebrities, and you compare yourself to those unrealistic standards, which isn’t good! A few months ago we showed you five different types of vaginas, but upon further investigation, Cosmo UK thought that those weren’t specific enough, so there are now seven types of vaginas that you can identify with. Curious? Check them out and find out what type YOU are!
Prominent Inner LipsIf you have this one then congrats! Your vaginal shape is super common. This type of vagina means that the labia minora is longer than the labia majora. It might not be as drastic is the one drawn, since the size can vary from person to person. Source
Asymmetrical Inner LipsThis means that your vaginal lips might be different shapes or lengths. It might not look "perfect" but it is totally and completely normal and is very common for people with vaginas. Source
Visible Inner LipsThis one is also known as the "budding flower" since it can look like a flower in bloom. Kinda cute, right?! This vagina has smaller outer lips that curve and reveal the inner lips. Again, totally normal! Source
Curved Outer LipsThis type of vagina leaves your labia minora exposed since the labia majora is curved outwards. It gives you a little bit of a "horseshoe" shaped vagina, which is, also, perfectly normal! Source
Prominent Outer LipsThis type of vagina has smaller inner lips that might sit higher than the lower lips. The outer lips might even been a little puffy or big, but that is normal. Source
Small Closed LipsThis is the "ideal" vagina for some reason, but not many people have it. It's also known as the "Barbie" vagina. The outer lips cover everything and are completely symmetrical. Honestly, this is not a common vagina and if you don't have this one you are not alone! Source
Small Open LipsIf your outer lips are small but have a little bit of a "gap," then this is your vaginal type. Your labia minora may or may not be visible, depending on the size of the "gap." Source
