I heard that women in medieval India was topless upto 1200 AD.. Why ? India was developed in many areas on that time , but women were topless.. Why ?
Being "developed" has nothing to do with how people dress (or don't).
Indian society considered dress to be utalitarian rather than a means to hide the body because of some religious diktats. IMO that's highly developed, far more so than the primitive idea of letting your actions be decided by priests...
Also, as a result they had no body taboos like are so common in primitive societies (and in modern societies, which in that regard are very primitive).
The body taboos now ruling India were AFAIK only introduced during the Muslim occupation by the Mugals, and later by the Victorian British.
Looking at old photos of the Dutch East Indish, you see topless women there at least in rural areas as late as the 1920s or '30s.
According to ancient Indian view ... Sex is not an outcast .. They think it is an holy own since it creates a new life..
Indians thnk breast as a sexul organ , but don't insist women to close it , because sexulity is not demonised on that days .
Indians considered breast as a part for milk feeding , then only for sex.
Indians viewed breast as a symbol of motherhood...
