I've been to island many times and I can assure you no one cares about appearances. Remember, people on the island are of different shapes, sizes, etc. you get my point there are no perfect people on the island. However, I do undertand your self-consciousness, I was concerned about my return visit to the island this year because the "girls" otherwise known as the breasts have underwent reduction surgery during this year and I was worried about the scaring but my husband pointed out that the island doesn't encourage vanity but encourages freedom to be who you are and I'm an "islander" through and through. Just go for it and have a great uninhibited time.
Grinandbareit, I first thought of a real British Pastie too!! My mom makes them still like my grandmother before her and we only get them on special occassions. I wouldn't waste one by putting it on my nipples, every morsel is to be savoured!!! I don't think we'd get this special treat any more if we told my mom that we were doing that with them
