Not a lot of people know it, but just like the male of the species it’s 100 per cent legal for you to topless in a number US cities

The sun is shining, the weather is sweet. What isn’t there to be happy about with the awesome summer weather?

How about the sweating? And how about the way a sweat-sodden top clings to the body? Nobody likes that sticky feeling.

It’s not easy to cope with the stifling heat. Hanging out indoors with the air-conditioning ramped up is one way. Flying to a cooler climb is another. But, what if you just need to get around town.

Well if you want you could just do away with the T-shirt, shirt or blouse. Oh, and if you’re inclined to wear a bra underneath your top, you can do away with that too.

Yes ladies, not a lot of people know it, but just like the male of the species it’s 100 per cent legal for you to topless in a number US cities.

Brett hopes to one day reach the shores of far-flung Tristan da Cunha, the most remote of all the inhabited archipelagos on Earth…as to what he’ll do when he gets there, he hasn’t a clue. Over the last 10 years, London, New York, Cape Town and Pondicherry have all proudly been referred to as home. Now it’s Copenhagen’s turn, where he lends his travel expertise to momondo.com.
