Large labia: is it normal?
The labia are part of the external female genitalia (vulva). The labia minora is a skin fold that frames your vaginal opening, and the labia majora frame the labia minora. Labial hypertrophy is a medical term used to describe labia that are larger than average. It doesn’t mean that having large labia should be cause for concern.
If you’re feeling self-conscious about the size of your vaginal lips, you’re not alone. To set the record straight, there is no such thing as a perfect shape for female genitals. Vaginas and vulvas come in all different shapes, sizes, colors, and degrees of symmetry.
On average, labia majora range from 7–10 centimeters in length; sometimes larger, sometimes smaller. The labia minora range from 1–5 centimeters wide and sometimes protrude beyond the outer lips. There is nothing wrong with having elongated labia minora — around 50% of women have labia minora longer than their labia majora.
