“That is not how bodies work, fam.”

Is the cleavage over? This was the question that "fashion bible" Vogue posed on a Twitter poll.

The online survey was posted as a teaser to their December story that looks at "whatever happened to the cleavage?"

“The tits will not be out for the lads. Or for anyone else, for that matter,” states writer Kathleen Baird-Murray in the title 'Desperately Seeking Cleavage'.

The article "will explore the ups and downs of boldly bosom-focused fashion and examines the ways in which women from former 'Hello Boys' Wonderbra model Eva Herzigova to selfie star Emily Ratajkowski approach the cleavage."

The poll wasn't received well at all. In fact the magazine was received as another way that mass media uses to "police women's bodies." "While this isn't about big vs small breasts, it's still continuing to police women's bodies. It's time to stop," commented user @ausher8.
While there was one or two users who supported the new "trend", the majority accused Vogue of body shaming women with bigger breasts,

So far, of the 32 108 votes, 67 % are for for "If you have it, flaunt it", 22 % say "It depends on the outfit say", and the remaining 11% agree that "cleavage is over".
