Women of the 1600s, from queens to prostitutes, commonly exposed one or both breasts in public and in the popular media of the day, according to a study of fashion, portraits, prints, and thousands of woodcuts from 17th-century ballads.
Since Fashion styles seem to go in cycles, when is this cycle going to come back into style? Maybe Janet Jackson was just trying to bring back 17th-century fashion when she exposed her breast at the Superbowl, then again maybe not. :)
