The other day, we were watching TV, and a woman was wearing a beautiful low-cut shirt. My sister-in-law, who loves fashion, commented that she loved the shirt. Then she added, “Except for the neckline. I hate when women show cleavage.”
I was shocked and horrified. And hurt and angry. I wear low-cut shirts now and then. And, with my F cup boobs, I get quite a bit of cleavage when I do. Wearing low-cut necklines makes me feel confident and sexy. And my husband loves it too.
I know that I shouldn’t care what anyone else thinks. And I’m definitely not going to let it stop me from wearing what I want.
The day after she said that to me, I posted on Facebook, “It’s none of your business what someone else wears.” I got a lot of positive responses, but a few people argued that they did so have the right to tell someone else what they could or couldn’t wear. No. No you don’t. As long as they’re not breaking any laws, keep your mouth shut. What someone else is wearing doesn’t hurt you. It doesn’t affect you at all.
If I wear a v-neck that shows my belly button, and you can’t say anything nice about it, then just don’t say anything at all.
I wear what I want. You wear what you want. I won’t tell you what to wear or not to wear, so it would be nice if you could give me the same courtesy.
