The school district in Little Rock, Arkansas has announced plans for a dress code that will require teachers to wear underwear. Every single day. Female teachers will have to wear bras, too.

“Foundational garments shall be worn and not visible with respect to color, style, and fabric,” the letter reads. “No see-through or sheer clothing shall be allowed, and no skin shall be visible between pants/trousers, skirts, and shirts/blouses at any time.”

T-shirts, patches and other clothing containing slogans for beer, alcohol, drugs, gangs or sex will also be prohibited. Other verboten garments will include cut-off jeans with ragged edges, cut-out dresses and spaghetti-straps if teachers aren’t wearing at least two layers.

Flip-flops will be banned. “Tattoos must be covered if at all possible.” No jogging suits, either (though gym and dance teachers do get a pass on this one).

Organized labor vocally opposes the new universal underwear requirement and the rest of the non-draconian dress code.

美國阿肯色州小岩城校區宣布服裝規定計畫,要求老師們每天都要穿內衣褲上班。女老師也必須穿上胸罩。

「襯底服裝是一定要穿的,其顏色、款式及材質不能外露,」信中寫著。「透明、超薄衣服不能穿,上衣與褲子之間的皮膚任何時間不得外露。」

包含啤酒、酒精、毒品、槍枝或性標語的T恤、補丁與衣服都被禁止。其他像是剪短的鬚邊牛仔褲、露背裝及細肩帶服裝,若沒有兩層穿搭也不行。

不能穿夾腳拖。「身上的刺青必須遮掉。」除了體育與舞蹈老師之外,不能穿慢跑服裝。

勞工團體發聲反對這項全面性的內衣新規,及其他沒那麼嚴厲的服裝規定。
