Instagram’s official community guidelines explicitly state that nudity is not allowed on the platform and the female nipple is included under this umbrella.
There are exceptions to the rule such as “photos in the context of breastfeeding, childbirth and times after childbirth, health-related situations (e.g. post-mastectomy, breast cancer awareness breast or gender confirmation surgery) or an act of protest is permitted.’
Nudity shown in paintings and sculptures is also permitted.
