Lauren Odes, 29, was fired from her work because she was too “hot.”
She has filed a gender and religious discrimiation complaint against her employer.
The New Jersey woman claims she was fired from her job at a New York lingerie warehouse because her male employers considers her boobs too big and that she dressed too sexy for the workplace.
“We should not be judged by the size of our breasts or the shape of our body,” Odes said.
Odes hired celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred to represent her. They have filed the complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in New York.
Odes stated that her attire was appropriate for that business since they sold “thongs with hearts placed in the female genital area and boy shorts for women that say ‘hot’ in the buttocks area.”
During her employment with the warehouse, she was warned that her clothes were too revealing. At one point she was told to tape down her breasts so that it looks smaller.
“This whole experience has been horrifying to me,” she told reporters. “I love fashion and I always will, but I don’t believe any woman should be treated as I was.”
She claims that she agreed to purchase a sweater to wear over her dress, but she was still fired.
“I understand that there are Orthodox Jewish men who may have their views about how a woman should dress … but I do not feel that any employer has the right to impose their religious beliefs on me,” she said.
