One Random Boob

There's an alarming trend going on in the fashion world and it's really really getting on my nerves.

One Random Boob.

If you look back on the fashion feeds lately, you'll see what I'm talking about. Designers/bloggers are showing off their lovely creations...and one random boob. Just out of nowhere, there it is. Is this the new look for summer? Can I walk down the street and, "Oh check it out, here's my boob. It's fashion." I'm pretty sure if I don't get arrested, I'll at least get a very stern talking to.

I'm not a prude at all. I'm down with being sexy. I have a shirt that has different layers and one layer does include the one random boob popping out. But I do NOT like to see it on the blogs all over the place. It looks...trashy. If it's lingerie, I can kind of understand, although there are many wonderful poses out there that cover the nipples in a very classy way. But if you're trying to sell a shirt and some shorts? Why the boob? Why the one random boob?!

And sure, tell me that sex sells. I'll agree. But there is a balance and this One Random Boob is turning me off to so many creations. It's not sexy. It's a wardrobe malfunction. Oops, my shirt flew up and I forgot a bra! One Random Boob!

If I want to see boobs, I'll take my shirt off and just cycle through my 50,000 skins. Heck, I have most of the skins my friends do and I know most of their measurements. [What can I say? We're a very sharing group.] I can see their boobs if I want just by changing my skin. I don't need to see some model selling One Random Boob a half done dress.

Just on principle, I'm never buying an outfit that I see advertised with One Random Boob. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go look at my bras now.

I'm so glad someone agrees!

The other day at Tuli I spotted a girl sporting a free shirt from RunoRuno (I've seen it around the blogs, which is why I recognize it) And not much else. Which of course meant her kitty was proudly on display along with the One Random Boob.

I for one would find a healthy dose of modest confidence much sexier than a 1RB. But I guess I'm just not that attracted to boobs.

That's called hootch. I avoid it so well, I don't even notice it. :)

OMG - I so agree with this!!!!! Why would I buy a shirt I cannot wear anywhere? Next, they'll be trying to sell us crotchless pants.

I didn't notice it until you pointed it out. Now I see The Boob everywhere.

I'd rather just stay on Bluebonnet and stare at my own in awe. :P

ROFL. Ok, I'm a guy and yet I have failed to notice this. How have I failed?? Must open my eyes and go out in search of random single boob exposure!
