A 29-year-old female asked:

Today it is a warm weather here 60 degrees and i dressed a cropped top. went outside and felt very cold in waistline area where it was open. does exposing that area to cold really harm uterus or ovaries or is it old wives tale?

There is no reason to believe you put your uterus or ovaries in any danger by wearing a crop top. Your internal organs are protected from cold by several layers of skin, fat, muscle, and constant circulation of warm blood.
