We have all heard the saying “if you’ve got it, flaunt it”. And some women take it that advice and apply it to their dress sense and then some, especially when getting ready for a night out during this party season. Letting it all hang out begins to have a new meaning.
What are we talking about? Cleavage of course! Recently Australian lingerie brand Pleasure State creators of the revolutionary My Fit range of push up bras (and one of my personal favourites) has asked Australia to decide: What is Cleavagely Correct?
Fashion personality and Australia’s Next Top Model judge, Charlotte Dawson joined the team at Pleasure State to help raise awareness for the campaign, commenting that “not all women or bras are created equal, ideally a woman should have a choice to be natural, slightly lifted or proudly va-voom,” she said.
“Like all fashion choices, different moods and occasions often call for a customised solution to ensure you feel at your best and can put your best cleavage forward. pleasure state my fit has created a range of bras that allows a woman to now go from natural, to customized push to an extra oomph as they choose.”
According to the Pleasure State Cleavagely Correct survey:
- Australians are nearly split down the middle on the Cleavagely Correct debate – with 52% believing at least some cleavage enhancement is appropriate at the office Christmas party, whilst 48% believe minimal or natural cleavage is correct
- 27% of women plan to show cleavage at the work Christmas party compared to 11% who show some cleavage at work
- Challenging the fashion guideline of women highlighting either their cleavage or legs when choosing their outfits, nearly 60% of respondents believe it is okay to display both this social season
- Women from NSW are more likely than women from the other states to prefer to show some cleavage at the office Christmas party (37% compared to the national average of 27%)
With the results in, we thought we’d ask Charlotte her thoughts about when it is best to show some (or no) cleavage.
Appropriate cleavage according to Charlotte Dawson:
