The world was chattering this week about an Elle magazine article that said French women, who were once famous for their willingness to go topless, are now more likely than ever to keep their bikini tops on while on the beach. The change is explained by a mix of skin cancer concern and a new vision of feminism which has left fewer Gallic women ready to go the way of Brigitte Bardot.

After all, how can you tell where it's OK and where it's a crime to do the full monty? To keep you from being hit with a fine or getting yelled at by an insulted Frenchman, The Local has gathered together some essential things to know before you bare all on the beach or in Paris.
