You might remember a few weeks ago when the whole of the internet went batshit crazy about Instagram’s nipple-bashing censorship policies after they deleted several high-profile accounts for lewd imagery. 

The social media app's reluctance to allow the occasional naked breast to appear among its sea of sepia-toned lattes and vintage t-shirts prompted Scout Willis to take to the streets of New York in topless protest.

This, in our honest opinion, is not only the best kind of protest EVER, but also an excellent way to demonstrate how stuck in the past Instagram is when it comes to censorship.

The protest made headlines everywhere, including on FHM.com, and was supported by A-list stars from Rihanna to Cara Delevigne.

It was like the swinging sixties all over again and it was bloody brilliant – until the fuss started to die down again and we all forgot about it. Until some genius invented the Nipple Bikini, that is.

If you’ve not seen it yet, it’s essentially a normal bikini that makes it look like you’re not wearing a bikini…

On one hand, the whole thing is slightly weird and confusing, but on the other it’s a woozy sexy brilliance that massively raises the bar in the whole censorship debate.

 

Women are now able to comfortably walk around topless wherever they damn please and that, quite frankly, is amazing.
