Lauren Odes Says She Was Fired For Large Chest

NEW YORK, (UPI) — A New Jersey woman who says she was first ordered to wear a bathrobe at work and then fired for having an overly large bust has sued a New York lingerie firm.

Lauren Odes and lawyer Gloria Allred displayed a photograph that showed her wearing the bathrobe at a news conference Monday, ABC News reported. Odes says the owners of Native Intimates, a wholesale lingerie company, engaged in sexual and religious discrimination.

Odes, who is Jewish, said her former employers are Orthodox Jews who were trying to impose their view of proper women’s attire on their employees.

“I do not feel an employer has the right to impose their religious beliefs on me when I’m working in a business that’s not a synagogue, but sells things with hearts on the female genitals and boy shorts for women that say hot in the buttocks area,” she said.

Allred said Odes was “humiliated” by being forced to wear the bathrobe. Odes said she was fired by telephone while she was out shopping for a long baggy sweater.
