 Beads & Boobs

Are you a flasher? The act of exposing one’s breasts at Mardi Gras dates back to the 1970s, but drastically increased from 1987 to 1991.

Breast flashing is not considered to be a “real” tradition of Mardi Gras, but rather a phenomenon that surrounds the spring break mentality of the people that hang out on Bourbon Street.  Many women flash because they are violating the expected norms of society as a whole. Of course being under the influence of alcohol attributes to the situation too  

The festive parades throughout New Orleans and the South remain a more sacred celebration that are frequented more by locals, while the wild celebrations occur on Bourbon Street alone with hundreds of tourists.

Beads and Boobs is a variegated colorway of purple, green and gold
