I have a black (nearing grey from age) singlet top - with the "For Rent
used earthspace...." rant on front. It gets worn but not oft in public.
Bought sometime in mid to late 80's. (88 I think)

Whenever I wanted to feel trendy yet sexy - it was the pick - being so
large I had to wear a black bikini top underneath (back in my early to
mid teens this is ;o)

Now it gets worn when I feel like sloth
