Joseon Korea: Baring it All

I'm sure Korean nationalists will deny it until the cows come home, but fact is fact.  In Joseon Korea, women who had borne male children often displayed their breasts openly as symbols of pride. The practice continued into the early 1950s. Look, there's nothing to be ashamed of, and we are not critiquing Korean customs.  In what other cultures did/do women freely uncover their bounty bosoms?  Mainly the tribes of Africa.
