Tight-Fitting 'Miss Sexy' Pants Banned At School
A school in Somerset, UK has has angered parents by banning popular tight-fitting pants branded"Miss Sexy" because they are "too sexy" for the classroom.
Teachers at Nailsea School in North Somerset has ruled the Miss Sexy pants to be unsuitable because they reveal a visible underwear line, have bronze buttons, and carry a brand label. In the past three years, female students at the school could wear the Miss Sexy pants without incident, but recently students who have flouted the ban have been either sent home or made to work alone in an empty room.
The Miss Sexy pants, which are black and cost £10, was tolerated previously until the Nailsea School switched to a new £32m school premises in the summer and the new move was accompanied by a uniform switch. However, the switch has angered some parents, and they are refusing to pay £16.99 on the new "official" pants when they look almost exactly the same as the old ones.
Jane Dalby, 49, and her husband John, 54, have been told by letter that their daighter Alex, 14, will be sent home if she doesn't change her attire. Mrs Dalby said: ''These trousers have been fine for the last three years and my daughter looks very smart wearing them. I'm fully supportive of the school and I'm not trying to be awkward but I really don't see what's wrong with them. The ones from the school shop don't fit properly because they have longer legs. The new rules really are over the top.
Another parent, Jacqui Burton, said: 'I think my daughter looks very smart in her trousers so why should we have to buy more trousers she doesn't need?'
David New, the principal of Nailsea School, claimed that the new policy only concerned a "small minority" of students, not 80% of the female students as claimed by Mrs. Dalby.
Mr New said the Miss Sexy trousers revealed the shape of the students underwear and create a "negative impression" of the school, which has 1,350 pupils. He said: "For every parent that has complained I have had tens saying how much they support the school."
