|What can someone with her shape wear?|
So, how does that play out in the work place? Most of Corporate America have dress policies and some of the requirements are strict. Yet some women can comply to the dress code yet still raise some eyebrows because of their shape.
I've seen on two or three different occasions where a coworker of mine from a previous job got sent home for wearing what was deemed "inappropriate." But the consensus of the office was that there was nothing wrong with what she had on. It was how she looked in her outfit that prompted management to react. So, what is a curvy woman to do?
Look at the photo to the right. She's in great shape (yoga instructor) and has dangerous curves. Her dress fits her, but I wouldn't consider it tight. Should she buy her clothes a size too big to keep the peace in the office?
What about people who aren't curvy who can wear what they want? Is that fair to someone who has an hourglass shape?
I think not. As long as a woman isn't wearing an inappropriate material (ex. leather), nightclub attire, skin tight outfits, etc., then leave her alone. Some people are just attractive and can't help being a distraction in the workplace. It's not fair to let an Ann Coulter type wear what she wants, but then get upset when Vida Guerra looks curvy in something similar.
I understand that Corporate America doesn't want their employees going goo-goo, gaa-gaa over each other. Nothing would get done and sexual harassment law suits would go through the roof. But, you have to be mindful of what you're suggesting to people when you discipline someone for having curves. It may send a better message by not singling someone out because they have a DD bra size or 42 inch hips. It's just not right.
To some it borderlines racism given that most black and hispanic women tend to be curvier than others, but that's beside the point. There are plenty of women of all races who have hourglass shapes. The point is: don't make them feel bad because they look good.
Some people just can't tone down their sexy.
