BBC News – Toplessness – the one Victorian taboo that won’t go away

My own assets in that regard are, well, unremarkable (B cup). And anyway, in Toronto, where I live, that debate was held years ago and women are free to be topless if they wish. As it happens, not many of us actually exercise that right.

However, being an older lady, I frequently discover that there is still a prejudice against legs; a prejudice expressed usually by my own female, older contemporaries.

I frequently wear short skirts; I like the look and feel. Almost certainly, though, one of my neighbours, friends or acquaintances will make some pointed remark. Or, actually, they used to do so. My uncaring cheerful, reply might now be starting to influence them.

One of them was wearing a nifty little skirt last week, albeit also with some quite severely conservative tights. Nevertheless, legs were admitted to exist  and she looked very smart and presentable and feminine.
