Tip of the Week

Some people believe that the nipples were actually pierced, but who would voluntarily hang a cape from their nipples?
In the middle of the 14th century, Queen Isabella of Bavaria introduced a dress style that was open all the way to the navel. Women took advantage of this opportunity by adorning their exposed nipples with diamond studded rings.
