I especially like this bit:



The single mother said “that other female colleagues wore similar professional attire”, and that some dressed far more provocatively, the papers say.

But her bosses said that those women were unattractive and did not count.

She was also told that “as a result of her tall stature, coupled with her curvaceous figure, she should not wear classic high-heeled business shoes, as this purportedly drew attention to her body in a manner that was upsetting to her easily distracted male managers”.





Poor male managers! :rofl:

Here she is:

Well, she's very attractive, hope she takes them to the cleaners. Maybe there's another side to it though.

Um.. is that an example of something she wore? Because she's got a very different definition of "business attire" than I do :lol:

That depends on what profession you are talking about! :lol: She does look like a certain kind of "professional" :eek: :scream:

Nice nip action there :rofl: - if she buttoned the blouse on top of the white leotard it would be fine though.

The 3rd outfit was nice, the last one looked more like party attire than work, but it looked very nice on her, but the first 2 photos? As one overly-endowed woman to another (even though I'm guessing she paid for hers), it is a bummer when others get to wear things that we don't, but different body shapes do make an impact. I have coworkers who can wear Camisole tops with spaghetti straps to the office, and it does not look inappropriate. I can't.

it doesn't really matter though - if her boss was idiotic enough to say she can't wear high heels, or that her coworkers could wear sexy clothes because they aren't attractive, she probably has a case.

The last outfit is a bit OTT for an office, but the rest of them seem fine to me :shuffle:

Ok so Citibank say it was a performance issue that caused her sacking. I can believe that, Im sure some sexual harassment was at play here too, so what better way to publicise your case when you are :smokin: than to pose provocatively in the press? :bribe:

I agree that other than her nipples showing through and that one outfit with pink top and deep cleavage, she looks fine. The latter is great for a night out. She just needs to button up her jacket in the first few pictures. I love the pencil skirts and the grey top one as well as the black dress. She looks great.

I could see them telling her to cover up the nipples but other than that the management appears to have been inappropriate.
Hope she wins if what she says is true.

genevieve, I don't think spaghetti straps are appropriate in the office setting regardless of cup size. Not in my office, at least.

I love the pencil skirts and the grey top one.

The outfit with the grey top was the only one that I would say is appropriate to wear when working in a bank (I did work in a bank for 2 years and we had a definite dress code). The rest are either too tight (black dress and B&W outfit) or way too much cleavage showing (white skirt/rose & pink top).

Now I can't get the "I'm too sexy" song out of my head. :wall:

Karina1974, I think if she buttoned up the white jacket, she'd be fine. The dress is fine too IMO but agree that the pink top with the white skirt is best saved for the night on the town. Cute top, btw.

Yeah, if those are examples of the type of outfits she wears to work, she needs a lesson on the fact that she is supposed to be promoting the bank's services, not her chest size. :scream::yikes:

I'm surprised they didn't explain to her during training what constitutes proper vs. improper/unprofessional attire. First thing we went over in teller training was the rules and regulations, and that included the dress code. I doubt that the bank I worked for would fire someone right off the bat, but the employee definitely would get a bad write-up during a job review.

That white top is a good example of why bras are your friend.

And the silky pink top is a good example of why push-up bras with a low-cut top are not your friend. Unless your "profession" is something a little more, uh, customer-intensive than banking.

Very true. I can wear fairly low cut things that would look downright hoochie on a well-endowed woman because I barely have boobs to speak of. It may not be fair, but hey, at least you girls have something to show off on nights out! ;)

That said, I think the 2nd and 3rd outfits were okay. Pink one WAY too cleavage-y and the first one....where's your bra, woman? :lol: There's a part of me that thinks she's doing this for the attention too. Just the way she carries herself.

If she wasn't dressing according to the company dress code, they should have instructed her to do so. . .though I don't know if not doing so would be grounds for firing, but it would at least make the company seem far more responsible.

The way the story is written it sounds like the issue was her attractiveness in the clothes she wore, not the clothes themselves. She indicates that other employees wore revealing clothes. In which case the company looks totally in the wrong and the poor men who were distracted by her look like idiots (yes, men can control themselves).

But it's also possible that she was fired for reasons of performance and is just stirring up a fuss, I suppose.

"I'm too sexy for this bank, too sexy for this bank ......"

Years ago someone I know won a big case against a bank that employed her because she was able to prove sexual discrimination. She was a manager amongst male colleagues and they really did treat her very badly with name calling and being spoken down to. Plus overlooked for promotions.

II thought the outfits looked fine, but are these what she really wore to work, or some of her more conservative ones? For all we know,she may have worn mini-skirts with hooker heels and tops lmore like the sheer white with no bra, or that pink evening top. :lol:

Where I worked at years ago, one of the well-endowed secretaries, even though she wore a bra, still had her headlights exposed. The manager called her into her office and suggested she put band-aids on them if her bras weren't hiding them. :eek:

Personallly, I think someone felt threatened or jealous by her good looks, and wanted her out of there. I read another article where they moved her to another department where her job then entailed all telephone work, for which she didn't have the experience. Then they declared her incompetent and fired her.

Hope she had things well documented.
