Ah, transatlantic language differences strike again.  The British
"pasties" are completely unknown in the U.S., where the term refers to a
small patch worn over a woman's (usually a stripper's) nipples,
generally to provide a minimum amount of covering in order to comply
with anti-nudity laws while still leaving most of the breast exposed.

Transatlantically yours,
