Baring too much is damaging to careers

Flesh-flashing employees who take dress-down Fridays a little too literally could be damaging their career.

Research suggests that women wearing low-cuts tops could be risking more than being ogled at by the photocopier.

Inappropriate dressers could even lose their job, dispelling the myth that showcasing one’s assets can propel them up the corporate ladder.

Out of the 3,000 managers that were surveyed for entrepreneur Peter Jones, one in five said they had fired someone for not dressing appropriately. In addition, almost 50% admitted they had overlooked someone for promotion or a pay rise because of the way they dressed.

Wearing trainers in the office was named as the worst offender, followed by an un-ironed shirt, flip flops or showing too much cleavage.
