Free The Nipple

The Impact the of the Free the Nipple Movement

The Free the Nipple movement is nothing new, it officially started in 2012 when director Lina Esco was making a film by the same title. The intention was to bring to light the laws that focus around the fact that bare women’s nipples are considered taboo, while men’s are not. Free the Nipple campaign is part of a larger mission to reclaim women’s bodies, sexuality and safety. The timing now is right on track with the campaigns main focus being on equality and empowerment of all human beings. 

Nowadays, the movement continues to grow because of influencers and celebrities like Kendall Jenner, Bella Thorne and  Rhianna who regularly free the nipple and support the movement #freethenipple on their social media making sure the world takes notice.

This is the major kicker, this obsession with nipples and wanting to expose them has brought about increase in nipple augmentations. Yes, you read that correctly. NIPPLE AUGMENTATION. Some plastic surgeons are now doing procedures to offer “designer nipples.” Apparently, the most frequent request is for nipples like Kendall Jenners which can be crafted using filler. One patient even cited Kendall Jenner as having ideal nipples, remarking that she loved the “pointiness” of Jenner’s nipples, and adding that they look “sexy and feminine” through her shirt. 

The movement is making fashion designers take note as well. Sheer fabrics and eschew bras were a highlight of recent fashion weeks. Isa Arfen along with other international fashion houses sent models down with catwalk with bare breasts proving that nipples are definitely on trend.
