A woman who says she was fired for being too attractive has filed a complaint against her former employer.
29-year old Lauren Odes and her attorney Gloria Allred held a press conference in New York.
Odes says just days after being hired at Native Intimates Lingerie manufacturer in New York, she was told by a supervisor she was quote "just too hot for this office".
She says the supervisor suggested she wear t-shirts and sweatpants to work.
Odes says she was also asked to tape down her breasts.
She filed a gender and religious discrimination complaint against the company with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
The company declined to comment on the case.
