#FreeTheNipple took springtime by storm (if you don't know what #FreeTheNipple is, here's an explainer by Cara Delevingne). Since then, the hype has died down a bit, but Instagram still bans photos containing nipples. Regular normals' nips, that is.
Chrissy Teigen's is okay for the platform, as exhibited by this bizarre photo of the model snuggling with husband John Legend on astroturf. Both Teigen and Instagram seem unruffled by the exposure.
