You may not see them, but undergarments (or a lack thereof) can make an outfit. As summer approaches and quarantine wears on, more and more women are finding more comfortable alternatives to underwire bras or ditching them altogether. Going braless (or even topless) is now widely accepted, but the trend also brings with it a lengthy and sometimes controversial history.
Until the early 1800s, it was not uncommon in many European courts for women to actually wear dresses that fully revealed their breasts. It was during the Victorian era that the body parts became fully banned. Since then, breasts have gone from being seen as inappropriate to promiscuous to downright objectified and everything in between. Activists, models, and designers have pushed society’s conception of the female body over the past few decades, leading to a resurgence of female toplessness and an increase in no-bra dressing. As many forgo the undergarment while at home in quarantine, CR delves into the history of the braless trend in pop culture, from movie cameos and celeb style to the runways.END
