Now this news article just doesn’t make sense to me. Isn’t it usually the opposite that happens (ex: Abercrombie & Fitch’s legal battles), where you’re fired because you’re not hot enough? I kid. We won’t get into that.
It’s all over the news right now that Lauren Odes (of none other than) Hoboken, NJ was fired from a lingerie company called Native Intimates. She’s suing. This store is apparently based in NYC, and the accusations are less than flattering.
Odes states that her boss told her that she had to “tape down” her breasts because they were too large. She was also wearing a dress that the company deemed inappropriate, and so her boss offered her a red bathrobe to wear over it. Gotta love camera phones, since Lauren took a pic of herself in the bathroom with it on. Can’t argue with that evidence. Unless she was trying on a bathrobe for fun? I mean, she is in a lingerie store after all. But speaking of working and being IN a lingerie store, wouldn’t Native Intimates want their employees to be attractive and “sexy” if selling lingerie? I’m just thinking out loud here, but I’d rather buy my lacy undies from a girl who looks like she wears them herself, rather than my grandma. But, on the other side of the fence, I bet you that Ms. Odes wasn’t exactly looking like a school teacher…but I digress.
While Lauren was out buying a sweater to cover her cleav, she was texted that she was terminated. No reason why, so one can only assume because of her boobies.
Interesting story. Here’s a video to check it out further:
What are your thoughts about her case? Do you think she’ll win?
