TREND ALERT:
LESS TOPLESS, MORE MODEST

Soleil worshippers may have noticed a change on French beaches this year: fewer bare female breasts. According to a survey conducted by L’Institut Tena/IFOP, going topless on French beaches is decidedly OUT. Women are putting their bikini tops back on and even wearing one-piece suits.
