Short skirts and too much cleavage can often work to a woman's advantage in the office, but not always. One woman in New Jersey, New York found out the hard way after her employer sent her packing for her sexy outfits.
Lauren Odes ironically worked for a lingerie brand and was told by her superior that her outfits were too provocative.
The 29-year-old has taken legal action against her employers who were Orthodox Jews, and says that her choice of dress was in line with the kind of products the brand sells.
"We should not be judged by the size of our breasts or the shape of our body," she said in a report by Reuters.
"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."
Odes has become somewhat of a celebrity across the USA as she champions her right to dress as she would like.

She did admit that she had received more than one warning over the short period she had worked at Native Intimates. Employers had asked her to tape her breasts down to make them appear smaller, to wear less alluring outfits and that at one point she was even asked to wear a red bathrobe over her outfit because they thought it was too revealing.
She told reporters that the experience has been horrifying and that she doesn't believe any woman should be treated as she has been.
