A particularly hot stretch of weather in England led to women coming up with the country’s newest fashion trend, just in time to make a “statement” at the 2017 Glastonbury Festival: glitter boobs.
Writers for The Sun describe that the bold, feminine-themed look has taken off with ladies of all ages, who are now applying specks of shiny material on and around their bare breasts, along with an added gemstone or two to cover their nipples for modesty’s sake.
“Glitter boobs are a beauty trend where women cover their breasts in sparkly paint, multi-colored gems and nipple tassels,” writers for the New York Post confirm the existence of the new fashion craze.
The Post’s writers also explain that the bra-less fashion move, also occasionally dubbed “disco t**s” or “glitter t**s” by the public, has been used by a handful of notable fashion designers, including Yves Saint Laurent, on their runway models.
“Laurent featured the [glitter boobs] look in their SS17 show,” the Post goes on to note, “and it was [also] all the rage at California’s Coachella festival.”
From fashion shows to musical festivals, the glitter boobs trend then trickled its way to female users of social media, “with hundreds of women [now] proudly baring their jewel-encrusted breasts” on the photo-sharing site daily.
The look has also reportedly proven popular with women currently attending the Glastonbury Festival in England, with several female attendees seen rocking the provocative look throughout the performance grounds, according to The Sun.
“Since the event started on Wednesday, [several] performers have been seen dancing in just sequin pasties and hot pants,” they detail further.
For women who are curious to try glitter boobs for themselves, the Post was kind enough to offer a step-by-step tutorial, which can be found below.
- Invest in quality sticky gems with proper adhesive on the back.
- Apply a fixing gel or hair gel before sprinkling glitter and gems on [boobs].
