Taiwanese Firm Hosts Employee Lingerie Day.

In celebration of an exceptional launch of new camisoles, a Taiwanese lingerie company decided to make November 21st "Camisole Day". All 500 women working at corporate headquarters were encouraged to wear "only camisoles and knickers - much to the excitement of their male colleagues."

Surprisingly, over 450 of the women participated. Even more surprising - instead of being degraded or insulted by the event, most seemed rather excited. Link [Ananova]

Hey atalanta0jess, would you please stop running off at the mouth and send me a photo of you in a camisole?

Oh, and make me a sandwich while you're at it.

You know you love it.

If both the males and the females wore just underwear they would be out of business in 9 months when 450 women were out on maturnity leave. ;-)

They were thinking long-term . . . good play.

Oh, brother.
It's in Taiwan - you expect equal treatment?

These people work around lingerie all day. They're probably less uptight and more desensitized to the idea of wearing lingerie. Plus, it sounds like they had fun. Heaven forbid people should have fun.

I agree, it is a workplace, but so are swimming pools, strip clubs, Hooters, and plenty of other places where women don't wear business suits.

Sure it's sexist, but it's just as sexist to blame the men for this. Maybe if enough women had said "no", they would have cancelled it.

For the record, I'm an attractive young, confident woman who would not in the whole world ever be caught wearing only a camisole and underwear to work. It has nothing to do with finding the female body beautiful and worthy of appreciation, but has everything do with the fact that this occurred at a WORKPLACE. Where people are supposed to be WORKING, not appreciating each other's bodies. It is totally inappropriate to be wearing only underwear at work. It is also totally inappropriate for the management to be creating a sexually charged atmosphere in the workplace. Not to mention how sexist it is that only the women were asked to wear lingerie.

Women's bodies are worthy of admiration. So are men's. It's telling that only women are routinely expected/asked to show off their curves.
