Lauren Odes says she was fired from her data entry job in New York’s Garment District for being a distraction.

…a supervisor told her the Orthodox Jewish owners were not happy with her attire — and that her girls were a dangerous distraction.

“When I was first told that I was too hot and that my breasts were too large, I was shocked,” the 29-year-old woman said. “I thought that I was dressed appropriately every day for my job as a production assistant.”

…Odes said she agreed to accommodate the owners by wearing a gray T-shirt and black jeggings with rain boots the next day.

Again, the female supervisor came with complaints from the bosses.

“Lauren, try taping down your breasts to make them appear smaller,” she said, according to Odes…

The next day, Odes said, she wore a high-waisted black dress that fell to her knees. Once again that didn’t pass muster with her masters, who complained they could see the back of her bra straps.

Odes said she was given a choice — go across the street and buy a “a sweater that comes to your ankles as an outfit,” or cover up completely in a bright red bathrobe with a black guitar motif the supervisor had pulled off the rack.

When she donned the robe, Odes said her co-workers laughed at her. She said after 15 minutes of abuse, she broke down crying and went out to buy another outfit.

While she was shopping, she was fired.
