#TheToplessTour.

Two British students are encouraging women to send in fun, topless photos — only with their backs shown — to be shared on social media as part of “The Topless Tour”.

The tour began in 2012 and features photos of topless women (mostly) posing against dramatic backgrounds in nature, or in yoga poses.

Fans of the tour have said that, for them, the project is free and liberating, and that “pressure and judging went away” when they posed for the photo.

Others have said that it’s a refreshing way for young women to embrace who they are and love their body.
