Lauren Odes contends she was fired from her job at Native Intimates in Manhattan because the owners thought she was too hot.
“When I was first told that I was too hot and that my breasts were too large, I was shocked,” the 29-year-old woman said. “I thought that I was dressed appropriately every day for my job as a production assistant.”
A pint-sized brunette with platinum streaks, Odes said she was wearing a dress that day at Native Intimates.
Odes said she agreed to accommodate the owners by wearing a gray T-shirt and black jeggings with rain boots the next day.
Again, the female supervisor came with complaints from the bosses.
“Lauren, try taping down your breasts to make them appear smaller,” she said, according to Odes.
The next day, Odes said, she wore a high-waisted black dress that fell to her knees. Once again that didn’t pass muster with her masters, who complained they could see the back of her bra straps.
Odes said she was given a choice — go across the street and buy a “a sweater that comes to your ankles as an outfit,” or cover up completely in a bright red bathrobe with a black guitar motif the supervisor had pulled off the rack.
There was no immediate comment from the company.
