Cleavage: How Much Is Too Much?
Your guide to unwrapping your packages this holiday season.

We usually don't associate the brrrr!-ful winter months with boobs hanging out of our clothes (that would be summertime!) but the Daily Mail points out a tricky sartorial trend: lots of cleavage with the holiday party dresses.

Especially in such sweatpants-and-T-shirt times, us single girls relish the holiday party for the chance to show off some cleavage and reel in a randy fellow. It's been a long time since our Sexy Police Woman / Sexy Nurse / Sexy Mailman costume at Halloween, after all. In northern climates, we're wearing down jackets from late September until late March, so dress-up opportunities are few and far between. The trick, of course, is to show off your girls in a sensible way.

So how low should you go? Aim for what you feel comfortable with -- though we suggest you aim for social appropriate-ness. A cocktail party on a Saturday night? Go wild. An office party? Definitely show a bit less, but still enough to enchant Bingo in accounting. Synegogue or church? Cover 'em up.

Cleavage baring is up to you, of course, and it all depends on how comfortable you feel driving your cars out of the garage when other gals are likely to be covered up in a cardigans. Some men have a frisky sense of fun about decolletage, but others are turned off by what they see as une scandale.  (If you're lucky enough to be partnered up, you may find your partner feels a bit possessive about your decolletage.)

One thing is for sure: don't let anyone  (your mom or your man or some random person at the bar) make you feel slutty for dressing sexy! You shake what your mama gave you and don't apologize for it.

Unless you've got butt cleavage....then you just look silly.
