Yep, Boobs Are Trending: 8 Chic Ways to Stay Abreast
8 Start slideshow

Let’s face it: The world is obsessed with boobs. And honestly, why shouldn’t everyone be? After all, besides their more practical use as mammary glands, complete with milk ducts, boobs are pretty fucking awesome in their own right.

With anything great, however, there’s bound to be some controversy, and boobs are no exception. Breasts have always been exploited by the male gaze in gentlemen’s publications and the like, but now they’re being censored on social media platforms like Instagram for their sexuality, a double-standard move that is reflective of the larger attitudes toward female sexuality and nudity in society.

It’s a catch-22—what’s a modern woman to do? Some women have turned to #FreetheNipple, a movement that challenges double standards when it comes to sexualizing and censoring the female body and has garnered support from people like Scout Willis, who went topless in NYC to protest Instagram’s censorship rules.

If you’re down for the cause, but don’t necessarily want to head to the office sans shirt, we recommend making fashion choices that can spark the conversation. Here, five items that will help you stay abreast.
