NC for this since it maybe outing.

I'm lucky enough to go on a trip abroad paid by work as a thank you for working hard. Some of the ladies (20s if relevant) are wearing very skimpy clothing. Some of them might as well be naked blush Is this acceptable? It's a social trip but with colleagues.

Are they meeting clients? Representing the company? If not, they can wear whatever they want.

How is it outing?

Who cares let them wear what they want.

Aye right.

Biancadelrioisback Fri 12-Jul-19 22:01:13

Why would she be relevant? More acceptable? Less? Either way...why?

Biancadelrioisback Fri 12-Jul-19 22:01:42

Why would age be relevant sorry

Ahh leave them to it - if I had the body I would too!

It's not a work event though is it? It's a holiday paid by work?

I’m having visions of all these young women wearing bikinis around the pool, and then OP on a sun lounger in full business suit

If it’s a relaxed social thing I don’t think it’s that big a deal. Assume you’re abroad somewhere warm too?

Lucky you! Does it really matter?

If it's meeting clients - not acceptable.
If it's a jolly - what ever !! At least you've not shown yourself up but make sure you chill and have a nice time. You'll look a boring otherwise.

Yep, this happenned.

I'm so glad you started this thread OP. The world today is sadly lacking in opportunities for women to talk about their experiences of wearing skimpy clothing with people like you who have no ulterior motive.

It's a social trip, they can wear whatever they like. It no ones business.

Inkstainedmags Fri 12-Jul-19 22:17:03

Some of them might as well be naked

Are they wearing nipple tassles and a thong?

Pinkyyy Fri 12-Jul-19 22:25:56

Are they supposed to lay by the pool in a pencil skirt and cardigan?

Teaandcrisps Fri 12-Jul-19 22:27:16

And suddenly all thier clothes fell off...

There's a whole spectrum of clothes between business wear and string thong bikini. I guess people are ok with seeing their colleagues nearly naked!

Not really the done thing to wear business clothes at the beach/by the swimming pool though, is it?

You are being quite silly. If you don't like it don't look!

Biancadelrioisback Sat 13-Jul-19 15:59:06

Is seeing a colleague nearly naked any different to seeing anyone else nearly naked? Surely if you're on holiday or by the pool and it's hot, you would expect people not wear less than they would to, say, a board meeting.
Do you now consider them to be less professional?

I have to go into a pool as part of my job, so all my colleagues have seen me in swimwear..what else would people wear in the water (assuming you are talking beach/pool).
