A buxom 29-year-old New Jersey woman claims managers at an intimate apparel shop in New York told her to tape down her breasts, then fired her because she was "too sexy" for the office.
"It was very shocking, very humiliating," said Lauren Odes, who filed a complaint against Native Intimates to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
"It was a crazy experience, unlike anything I've ever been through."
Odes and her lawyer, Gloria Allred, said she spent one humiliating week at the Fifth Avenue garment business in April.
A temp agency placed Odes at Native Intimates, where she performed data entry and coordinate shipment of samples, according to Allred.
"She was told by supervisors that 'You are just too hot for this office. Maybe you should wear your boyfriend's T-shirt and sweatpants,'" Allred said.
