Women's clothing is a barometer of a society's freedom and success. When times are tough most societies start decrying female nudity and attractiveness, hanging witches, stoning adulterers, basically making any woman terrified of showing even an ankle in public. On the other hand, in good economic times societies appreciate - or at least tolerate - nudity more, so that's when bikinis start coming out and coming off, both on beaches and in the media. The best example we can think of is Great Britain. Somehow it has managed to weather the recent ecomomic storms in the world and has kept herself nicely afloat. The proof is that her figurehead, the Page 3 girl of The Sun newspaper, is still cutting the waves of her forward movement. The Page 3 girl has kept Britain from the sexual depravity we see in other countries. We just don't see that depravity in Britain, neither executions of sexual women nor excessive pornography production. There are probably more successful glamour models in the UK than in any other country in the world, and honestly, have you ever even heard of a single British porn site? That's because the Brits tend to prefer a little bit covered up actually, but also a little bit showing. Britain is about as even-keeled as countries get, and that's why the degree of acceptable female nudity there is so well balanced.
