From the start of our modern age, women have been gaining on men in terms of gender equality, leaps and bounds have been made in the last hundred years that have done great good in settling the disparity in rights between men and woman. The fight is not over however, and there are still aspects of life in which women find themselves hindered when men are free to do as they please.

One such inconsistency is the freedom we men have to parade around shirtless, bearing our bods for all to see. For women around the world though, it is deemed inappropriate and often illegal to have nipple(s) on display. In recent weeks #FreeTheNipple has been causing a stir in it’s fight to give women the right to show off their nipples should they choose. The campaign gained massive publicity when Scout Willis (daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore) took a topless walk through Manhattan, posting pictures on Instagram as she went.

A new bikini top for women, designed by Robyn Graves and Michelle Lytle in solidarity with #FreeTheNipple is no available. The TaTaTop subverts the hypocritical law in many US states that women may not show their nipples. Created in a realistic skin tone with nipples right where they should be, the bikini lets women show their support and scandalise while still obeying the law.

Already Instagram is buzzing with uploaded photos of ladies of all ages wearing the TaTaTop, campaigning for free nipples everywhere. We’re all for it because, to be honest, if the most disgusting hairy man is allowed to show off his teets then it’s a total injustice that a woman cannot retaliate in kind.
