Boobs get a lot of — often unwelcome — attention. We've all experienced a version of "our eyes are up here" issues when we're out just trying to live our life. So while the idea of boob t-shirts — or nipple or pastie tees, if you prefer — seems counterproductive, staking a claim over your nipples may be just the type of empowerment you need walking down the street. 

This trending t-shirt will bring to mind its iconic, titillating burlesque predecessor, the pastie. Back in the days of Vaudeville, these taboo little discs allowed women to perform nearly naked without being arrested for indecent exposure. Decades later in the late '70s and '80s, people used black tape to X out their nipples as part of punk aesthetic.

From burlesque and anti-authoritarian movements, the pastie and other nipple-covering options have migrated into the mainstream. Recently, Kendall Jenner wrote an essay on her blog with the title, "Free the Nipple," and shortly after was seen wearing a t-shirt with a pair of saucy boobs drawn on it. Graphics like rainbows, peaches, unicorns, eyes, and even avocados are pairing up on tops to add some flair over your girls. 

If you're not going onstage any time soon, but want to show your boobs some love, pastie t-shirts are a fun and understated way to be a little bust-ful. Wear a pair of hearts tee with this summer's button down skirt, don some pineapples with cut-off denims, or dress up roses with a tulle skirt.
