I've got a bit of a problem where I want to move an edge loop along the normals of each edge. If I have gaps between the selected vertices, it works fine - as shown below.

But I want to move the whole edge loop, not every second vertex/edge. When I have individual origins selected and normal orientation and I press G then Z Z, it seems to move along an average normal for the whole edge loop, as shown below.

Sorry if I haven't explained this well.

The Shrink/Fatten tool is what you are looking for. Select your vertices then press Alt+S. You might find it useful to activate Even Thickness by pressing S.
