    Wandering Women Worldwide Welcome Topless Tourism Trend

    Women of all ages have embraced the newest social media sensation and trend in travel photography, The Topless Tour, but before you make any erroneous judgement calls based on the title, read on...
    Topless Tour Social Media Sensation Sparks Travel Movement


    Sep 03, 2014
    These days, both recreational and professional photographers from across the globe spend a significant amount of their time behind a lens, capturing a combination of photos from contrived poses to candid shots. Blipfoto, Pinterest and Snapchat are only a few of the social networks and apps geared towards sharing interests and experiences visually. One of the current photography trends that is catching on like wildfire among lady travelers is the popular Instagram sensation The Topless Tour project.

    While your initial reaction to reading that title may range from disgust to dismay, don't let the name fool you, it's completely PG-rated! The trio of friends who started the Instagram phenomenon created what is widely considered a liberating, but still tasteful photography project, which strives to engender body love not only for women, but men as well.

    How The Topless Tour Project Started

    Igvild Marstein Olsen (Norway), Lydia Buckler (UK) and Olivia Edginton (UK), met while attending Trinity Laban Conseratoire of Music & Dance in London, England.The Topless Tour emerged after a moment of spontaneity during a photo that was taken on a trip the trio took where they posed with their backs to the camera and bare skin to the wind. It wasn't until recently that the media picked up on the project, giving the initiative more exposure and causing it to steadily gain momentum.

    Edginton was quoted in an article on saying, "What is so wonderful is that underneath lays the powerful message of taking pride in our differences and embracing the love for the body." In a world where we begin making our assessments of people within the first few seconds of seeing them, this idea of fostering a greater level of self-love, appreciation and expression has the potential to be powerful indeed.

    Who's Participating in The Topless Tour Project?

    Who's participating in The Topless Tour? The answer might surprise you! Women and men of all ages and body types, from all walks of life are posing topless in scenic land and cityscapes around the world.
    Yoga poses are the most popular pose staged by the many Topless Tour models, but you'll also see shots of bare-skinned ladies as they're involved in action-packed activities like skydiving, riding horses in the countryside and seaside swims.
    In fact, when it comes down to it, you've seen more epidermis on the evening news, your favorite sitcom and even the beach than you'll see in most of these photographs. If anything, it's the locations themselves, where some of the pictures are taken that will surprise you.

    Choose Your Settings Carefully, Not Everyone Welcomes Additional Exposure

    An element of care and regard for cultural respect should be considered when choosing your setting for a photo. While The Topless Tour project serves as a continually growing source of inspiration to female travelers the world over, there is also an aspect of controversy. Not every country, city and site welcomes the additional exposure that The Topless Tour brings. Aspiring participants should be mindful and aware of their surroundings, as their actions can all too easily be misconstrued and cost them time and money if arrested or fined. 

    Follow The Topless Tour Project Motto (and Model)

    "Uniting people across the globe to feel the freedom and share their beauty with the world."

    If you are inspired to participate in The Topless Tour, whether you're a guy or gal, the founders of the project are actively recruiting new pictures! Keep in mind that while there are many individual shots taken, the majority of the photos that you'll see are posted by groups of friends, much like the founders of the movement themselves. So, the next time you're traveling with a passel of your pals, don't forget about The Topless Tour!

    From the Australian outback, to alpine peaks of Switzerland, the jungles of Brazil  to the coast of Portland, Maine, wherever you're traveling in the world, bring a lookout and keep your camera at the ready!
