Lingerie Worker Claims She Was Fired For Being 'Too Hot'


You might expect a lingerie warehouse to have a pretty lax dress code for its employees. But a New Jersey woman claims that she was fired for her "too hot" outfits. Her Orthodox Jewish employers didn't appreciate her busty physique and form-fitting clothing, even thought they sold, in her words, "thongs with hearts placed in the female genital area and boy shorts for women that say 'hot' in the buttocks area."

Lauren Odes, 29, did data entry at the Native Intimates warehouse for a week in late April. She says that she asked what the dress code was, and was told just to check out what everyone else was wearing. "So I did," Odes (pictured at left) said at a press conference on Monday. "The dress was very casual athletic wear to business attire."
