It makes sense, then, that so many women jump through hoops (cups?) to ensure that our breasts retain that smooth curved look via specially padded and strategically seamed bras. But like the corset before it, it’s high time we lose the padded-for-modesty bra. Are nipples really so offensive that they can’t make an appearance even under clothing?
Outrageous to have them in the newspaper of course but just fine to be perky in the park of a chilly morning?
Fine by me but it is an interesting way of looking at the world, isn’t it?
It’s also true that Ms. Valenti should get out a bit more. She’s writing for an English newspaper and this obsession is more American than it is European.
