But I can’t help but question all the breasts on display on fashion editorials lately, if it does not feel transgressive then what is the point?
Women have nothing to be ashamed of their bodies? True
No bra under a sheer top to preserve the integrity of the piece? Yes (in an editorial do not dare to hit the streets like that unless you are very brave)
Do we need to see the models deliberately expose themselves just because? No
Are the boobies going to make potential buyers want a pair of pants more? I don’t think so.

I can’t help but wonder if the photographers just go “ok hun now show me some tittays” in the middle of the shoot. It all derives from a cultural obsession with women and their lovely humps from both men and women but curiously the ones I’ve encountered lately have been produced by a male photographer…coincidence?
I agree with this statement Carolyn Latteier shares in her book:
“Breast: the women’s perspective on an American obsession”
These contemporary stereotypes have their roots buried deep in Western civilization’s long tradition of devaluing the fleshy and the sexual. Socially and politically, this metaphysical malaise has played itself out on the bodies of women. Under a historically male controlled power structure, the qualities of fleshy sexiness are projected onto women’s bodies.
Those fleshy objects must be ruled, regulated and owned.

I mean at times fashion spreads feel a little like Playboy, only glamorized since you know its fashion with capital F, but since the core of this stories is not about showing the emancipation of women from double standards and friends the result is more times than not raunchy and self serving without even going into Terry Richardson territory.

I would like society stop equating the nude female body with impurity, sexuality is not a bad thing; women are not responsible for men’s dirty thoughts when they encounter breasts covered or otherwise. Boobs should not be used just for shock value because there is nothing inherently shocking about them, they are the bomb and we should be proud.
So do you care at all for the abundance of breasts in fashion editorials lately?

All the pictures are from editorials for September issues of different magazines via FGR.
Now you ask: Máriel what’s with the weird censoring?
My reply: I don’t want the "G" police to shut down my blog.
EDIT: tnx Ginger for pointing out the models share a prepubescent body with the exception of Eniko, but that may be due to the preference of designers to cast nearly flat chested girls as to avoid “disturbing” the lines of a design. These girls then become famous and get cast for editorials. It’s a chain.
