The Nipple Bikini Lets You Go Topless Without Taking It All Off

For fans of #FreeTheNipple. NSFW.

1. This is the Tata Top.

2. Yes, it looks like boobs, but it’s actually a perfectly respectable bikini top.

 

3. The bikini was designed by Robyn Graves and Michelle Lytle, who were fed up with the idea that women couldn’t bare their boobs at the beach.

“Why can’t girls be topless? If you really think about it, what’s the difference between a man’s nipples and a woman’s? Is it really just the extra breast tissue? Is it the fact that women’s nipples are paired with a vagina?” they write on their website. “Is it the presence of a real and true female nipple bare to the world that is so offensive, that is so horrid that it must be kept covered?

4. Right now, the top comes in only one skin tone, but its makers are developing additional colors over the next couple of months.

Scout Willis is a huge #FreeTheNipple advocate.

7. And the top allows you to support the #FreeTheNipple movement without breaking any laws.

“You look topless…but you aren’t,” says the website. And anyway, it continues, “Who is this law protecting and what are they protecting them from? What message does it send to young women about their bodies? That they should be ashamed and keep them covered?”

8. The Tata Top retails for $28 with $5 of each sale going toward the Lynn Sage Cancer Foundation.
