According to Wikipedia: Cleavage is the exposed area between a woman’s breasts lying over the sternum and refers to what is visible with a low-cut neckline. In some cultures, a display of cleavage is considered aesthetic or erotic, and may be associated with garments with low necklines that expose or highlight cleavage, such as gowns, lingerie, and swimwear.
The Guardian once published an article called “The End of Cleavage,” that was subtitled “how sexy clothes lost their allure.” That was the question but what’s the answer?
First of all the display of cleavage is not something new. In 2600 BCE, Princess Nofret of the Fourth Dynasty of Egypt was depicted in a V-neck gown with a plunging neckline that exposed ample cleavage. In the 1960’s, a popular expression of the time was to “let it all hang out” which usually translated into that a person could “behave freely without being shy or feeling worried about what other people will think of you.” And while that definition may trace itself back to The Hombre’s 1966 immortal musical hit “Let It All Hang Out,” I think that statement’s just as true today.
You can behave freely without being shy or feeling worried about what other people will think of you and that extends to how you want your intimate portrait made.
