Ban mini-skirts in offices, say British men

London, Jan 14 (IANS) Around one third of men in Britain want hot-pants, mini-skirts and low cut tops banned from offices because they are "too distracting", a study has found.

London, Jan 14 — Around one third of men in Britain want hot-pants, mini-skirts and low cut tops banned from offices because they are "too distracting", a study has found.

The men said women should be stopped from wearing revealing outfits at work, the Daily Mail reported citing the study by the British Heart Foundation.

Hotpants were named by 32 percent men as unacceptable, while 30 percent said anything with a leopard print should be banned.

See-through or sheer tops were asked to be banned by 27 percent of men, while 24 percent named miniskirts and 22 percent low cut tops.

In a surprise, a majority of women -- 67 percent -- also said their female colleagues should be stopped from wearing tiny shorts, and 52 percent said miniskirts were unprofessional.

The study into British attitudes to clothes in the workplace found that more than a third of women said wearing red makes them feel more confident.

Other items of clothing to be rejected included slogan T-shirts -- deemed inappropriate by 32 percent of Britons -- and novelty ties by 26 percent.
