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.

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

Eurydice’s Last Words

by Kate Bradley I do not want to return To sit in the stalls, Of an empty black box Strewn with petals Leave the ghost light on, Let it shine like a call home, But I will not come back To turn it off alone. I learn this as we walk Our ever so solemn path Our thudding funeral march, You think we’re going back. As I trace my old steps, I fear of the day When the symphony swells, And I land my gaze On you, yet you will be Enraptured by the sound, If you did twist To turn around, You would not see me. So I am not sorry, I speak out into the empty air And I am not sorry. “Turn Around.” You do, you look You think  I fall But I run on, Arms wide open To fall in love With it all “Perhaps she was the one who said, ‘Turn around.” On the X45 bus, back from the Tyneside Cinema, I wrote a poem entitled “Eurydice’s Final Words”, after having seen “Portrait of a Lady on Fire”.  That poem was terrible, so I wrote a new one, as my response to the beautifully poignant film.  In one scene, Héloïse, an 18
