Cleavage is dead! Décolletage is not on trend!
Well that’s according to UK Vogue magazine who reported in their December issue the end of cleavage. The article says, "cleavage - those magnificent mounds pushed together to display sexual empowerment, to seduce, to inspire lust or even just to show off - is over, or at least, taking a well-earned break."
Vogue also conducted a Twitter poll in which 11% of followers agreed that cleavage is over whilst 67% said “if you have it, flaunt it”.
But whilst recent runway shows and red carpet events may have featured high necklines and braless boobs, Vogue really doesn’t represent the millions of women worldwide who flaunt their luscious mounds and the men who admire them. Let’s face it, putting forward the argument that a woman’s body shape is “out of style” is offensive and the comments on Twitter reflect the angry response from women, and men. The brutal backlash on Twitter declared that the writer was probably flat chested and that Vogue should be focussing on fashion not women’s bodies. Let’s be realistic, boobs are not a fashion accessory you can change with the season like, say a handbag.
So Vogue are basically saying that body shapes like mine are out of fashion. What about people who can't help having cleavage? pic.twitter.com/oK3mW7N7wR— Sophie Hall (@SophLouiseHall) November 2, 2016
In her defence writer KathleenBaird-Murray defended herself on Twitter:
Just to be clear: @BritishVogue cleavage story is not about breast size, large or small, being "in" or "out".— KathleenBaird-Murray (@kbairdmurray) November 2, 2016
(@britishvogue) It's saying that fashion designers are creating more natural, comfortable clothes....— KathleenBaird-Murray (@kbairdmurray) November 2, 2016
So the article was meant to be about fashion changing its focus away from cleavage rather than boobs being unfashionable. The article claims fashionistas are packing away their push up bras and opting for more subtle glimpses of flesh.
So the bottom line is that boobs will never go out of fashion! We love boobs – A cup or DD cup, enhanced or natural – we love them all.
Ladies, if you’ve got it, you have our permission to flaunt it. If you’re preparing for a night of seduction then put your best assets forward and if you are endowed with cleavage we have no doubt you will use it, and we are here to encourage you and cheer you on.
Vogue might have declared, "The tits will not be out for the lads. Or for anyone else, for that matter." but we’re telling you boobs, and cleavage, will never go out of style.
