Some will remember Phoebe’s weird songs and others will remember Joey’s lame pick up lines, but the guys who watched it when they were young will undoubtedly remember Rachel’s nipples.

Due to their constant appearances throughout the series, we'd think that they'd have their own slot in the opening credits alongside the 6 other members of the group.

Given how visible they are, it is pretty impossible to miss Rachel’s pointy nipples under her shirt. It was so obvious that you would think the character, played by Jennifer Aniston, never wore a bra...But if that was the case, how did 'they' stay so perky?

The theory

Fans have long come up with a theory that producers form the show actually asked Jennifer, Courtney and Lisa to cut holes in their bras in order to keep the goods on display. One person tweeted back in 2015:

Did you know that Friends' producers told Rachel and Monica to cut holes in their bras to show their nipples?

Another Friends fan chimed in with a similar theory:

You do know she made wardrobe cut holes in her bras so nips would show.

The truth

However flamboyant the rumours may be, Aniston actually came forward and revealed the secret behind her ever-present nipples. She responded to the tweets in a Vogue article stating:

Yeah I don't know what to say about that! It's just one of those things, I guess. I wear a bra. I don't know what to tell ya! And I don't know why I'm supposed to be ashamed of them - it's just the way my breasts are. But hey, OG, I'm not going to complain!
