Time to Elevate Your Christmas Jumper Game with SKIMS' Nipple Bra

by Molly Gymer

No, SKIMS' latest campaign didn't jump the gun on April Fools' Day.

Once again, the Kardashian clan is stirring up the online world, and this time, it's all about Kim Kardashian. She recently unveiled the latest addition to the SKIMS product lineup - which immediately went viral. 

In an Instagram video, Kim made a bold statement by introducing the Ultimate Nipple Bra. This updated version of the SKIMS push-up bra features, you guessed it, its very own pair of pointy nipples!

This move officially signals the comeback of the '90s, as these prosthetic nipples hark back to iconic moments of that era, most notably Jennifer Aniston's portrayal of Rachel Green in the beloved '90s sitcom, F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

The campaign video, a gimmicky sketch written by comedian Michelle Wolf, caused quite a commotion. 

Many accused Kim of capitalising on the current climate crisis to promote her fast fashion brand. The video features the millionaire Kardashian modeling the nipple-enhanced bra with glasses and leggings while making a statement about global warming.

She opens the video by stating, “The Earth’s temperature is getting hotter and hotter. The sea levels are rising. The ice sheets are shrinking. And I’m not a scientist but I do believe everyone can use their skill set to do their part. That’s why I’m introducing a brand new bra with a built in nipples, so no matter how hot it is, you’ll always look cold”. 

The bra itself didn't escape controversy either. Some disapproved of the "unnecessary" and "embarrassing" concept, with one comment even saying, "Most times that’s literally the only reason I put one."

Critics questioned Kim's sanity, but amid the outrage some women expressed gratitude. 

Those who had battled breast cancer and undergone mastectomies found this innovative idea a godsend, with one person sharing, "Of all the things Kim has created, this is by far the best ever."

The campaign's caption revealed that 10% of the profits from this release will be donated to 1% For The Planet, supporting their environmental initiatives.

A donation to a worthy organization and an inventive idea - what's not to like? Do you need one? Well, probably not. But for some, this bra might be the missing piece in their wardrobe. 

Or, another fun trend to bring the sexy back to your Christmas jumpers.

Fashion For a Cause: Brands That Stand with Palestine and the history of fashion as a form of Activism

by Oana-Maria Moldovan For over two months, there has been an ongoing genocide war in Gaza. To simplify a long and horrific issue, the situation that started, on a larger scale, around one hundred years ago, and has only become amplified since October 7th 2023. Taking place around the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, and Israel–Lebanon border, the armed conflict is between Israel and Hamas-led Palestinian militant groups.  The problem is about “stolen” land. Said land is seen as an important holy part of both religions involved. But really, how holy can we consider a land to be, if people kill other people for it? It’s important to remember that this genocide is about three things: forced occupation, zionism, and religion. It’s also important to remember what ethnic erasure is. This terrible expresion, also known as cultural or ethnic assimilation, refers to the process by which the distinct cultural or ethnic identity of a particular group is gradually diminished or erased, often due to ext

Now What? The Aftermath of the 'Manic Pixie Dream Girl'

by Susan Moore Here is a bit about me: I am an open, excitable, creative AFAB who is also moderately attractive. I have a unique sense of personal style and a personality that on the surface can only be described as “bubbly” and “quirky”. For this reason, dating is a nightmare. To be sure, I do not have a hard time finding dates or potential suitors. The problems arise when said dates spend some time with me and decide that I am a rare specimen, and the connection they feel with me is “unlike anything they have felt before”. Then, things go one of two ways.  Either a) they decide I am too high maintenance and no longer palatable, or  b) they choose to never look further than the surface and are content to date the idea of me rather than the real me. There is something rather interesting, perhaps funny, about my situation. It is in no way unique. I have met so many people who constantly dealt with the same problem. Even funnier still, is the fact that there is a trope that simultaneousl
