#64 Breasts (Free the Nipple)

From the trope of feminist 'bra-burning' to how uncomfortable underwires can be, to the way breasts are used to sell ethical causes.

How does the movement against bras just open up a market for 'bralettes', and how does it work for bigger-breasted people? Has queer(?) bralessness been taken over by pop-feminism?
