Would western women go topless in African areas where that is the custom? Showingtheir arms or ankles is just as unacceptable to a woman from Pakistan.
you definitely have a point there... hehe it is part of their custom so we have to respect that and I guess we should also aware to certain part of other countries like for example middle eastern countries. Some are very traditional although a lot of them are also wearing jeans now or casual but as a foreigner I still respect their tradition.

Are you talking about pre-spanish Philippines. Most of the Filipino that has Spanish influence are those Catholic Filipinos, because Spain taught the Filipinos the proper way of clothing & I don't want to say everyone because a lot of Filipinos also have their traditional clothes as you can see it to our Indigenous Filipinos. Ladies mostly are topless & guys are in bahag. if you go back to the history where Igorot and other tribal group do wear topless and pants. The Maria Clara clothing was the evolution of Baro't Saya.

They looked like Africans or Indians from Brazil because they wore very little clothes, only covering their private parts.

Lapu Lapu was a man, so he probably didnt wear a shirt, but the women described in the Spanish accounts did wear clothes.

But Muslim men from Mindanao wore open shirt and trousers too, but Lapu Lapu was not. Just thinking maybe they wore after the arrival of the Spanish ?

Filipino Martial Culture, The Ifugao & Bontoc Igorots head axe Hinalung - YouTube
^this video was taken by Americans. This is how the old Igorot usually wear
they are topless but actually they are already wearing top clothes Spain introduced to wear but I don't know why Americans want them to show the way they used to do before I guess to show the world that this is how they look, same as those people who used to live in Borneo (Indonesia, Malaysia and Brunei). I saw a video in Bali in 1940 and the ladies walk around without top clothing. But some are already wearing top clothing too, I guess it was just recently introduced.

^ No all Filipinos were Igorots when the Spanish arrived. The people in the Southern islands were highly influenced by Hindu empires and they wore elaborate clothing
