Hi Kirin, I just wanted to ask if you'd read this article: http://madartlab.com/2011/12/14/fantasy-armor-and-lady-bits/
and what your opinion is of breast-molded chest plates (boob plates). You see the odd one on Women Fighters In Reasonable Armor, though not usually showing much skin / exposing vital organs. I suppose you answered this on your blog already:
"Mostly it’s simply a believability thing. ... Believability being within the context of totally fantastical heroic adventure, so there’s actually a lot of elbow room for impracticality and I’m not always looking for paragons of combat efficiency or anything."
I don't know anything about armor, so I find myself wondering: Are boob plates "believable"?
