The cleavage wars strike again

The cleavage wars strike again, this time it's back after a brief absence

In news that may surprise women in possession of a pair of breasts, they've apparently made a comeback.

According to the New York Post "boobs are back in a big way", in part thanks to Rihanna "bursting" out of her gown at the premiere of her movie Valerian And The City of a Thousand Planets with her "lady lumps" (sorry, everybody) and "out and proud cleavage".

Funnily though, this comes after Vogue rather controversially declared in December that cleavage (always the bugbear of fashion types anyway, so awkward is cleavage with its disruption of clean lines and good cuts and the need for garments to provide, well, support) was out.

In a rather bolshie fashion, Vogue said at the time, "The tits will not be out for the lads. Or for anyone else, for that matter" (cue the revolution!).

Relief, one supposes for the women who have heaved their way through ordinary living with the indignity of gaping blouses, chest talkers and the extraordinary ability to make any outfit look a little obscene.

The thing is though, while various media outlets, and indeed fashion trends (ask any busty women their thoughts on the rise of bralettes as worn by the likes of models of the moment Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid) may declare a passing affinity with a body part (breasts are in! shoulders are the new erogenous zone! Highlight your mons pubis!) bodies aren't a trend.

And dressing them up as such is really quite far from being empowering to women. While the women with ample cleavage might celebrate their sudden thrust into fashion's "in" zone, it's less cause for "body acceptance" for women not in possession of a "bursting" pair of breasts, or something akin to Blake Lively's "melon-like miracles" (Vogue again, in 2014).
