This has been bugging me for quite a while. This girl is wearing a T-shirt, with four words on it. First two are pretty clearly "Hips" and "Tits", third one is most likely "Lips", but I can't for the life of me figure out what the fourth word is.

The pics won't help, but I'm hoping maybe someone knows the whole 4 word sequence...(maybe it's a UK thing?)

I googled "hips, tits, lips" and it seems to be lyrics by a band named Pigface. The song is called "Hips Tits Lips Power."

Thanks,Chick. I googled quite a while back, and didn't find anything useful. Tried a while ago and came up with the same thing.

Hmm...Power...doesn't even rhyme...

It's something of a feminist slogan that's been around for at least 10-15 years. Had a girlfriend in college with the same slogan on a T shirt.
It's also the title of a book on the films of Russ Meyer and apparently has an association from "Riot Grrrls" back in the '90s.

I think it goes like this:

Hips, tits, lips, power.
Now I need to take a shower.

The two women in the photo are Emma Anderson (I think) and Miki Berenyi out of Lush.

Emma(?)'s t-shirt is by another UK indie band of the time (late 80s/early 90s), Silverfish.

ETA: Silverfish - Big Bad Baby Pig Squeal.
