Jenny revealed that she was lost for words after the encounter with the HR member since she has worn a more provocative dress to work in the past without being sanctioned. “Why is this [the dress] making some 50-year-old man get his panties in a bunch?” she questioned.
However, the TikToker came out sincere that though the apparel hid her curves, the asymmetrical design of the dress makes it revealing when she reaches out to lift or stretch. She also took time to share images of the other body revealing clothes that she had worn to work.
Netizens give their comments on Jenny Bonavita’s post
TikTok users have aired their views on the issue raised by Jenny and most of them disagreed with her view and choice of outfit. Netizens explained that even though she rocked a casual look, the dress was not suited for a workplace.
A user commented, “Men in my office wear jeans, tshirts, trucker hats, and cowboy boots so that’s not business casual.” While another TikToker gave their candid opinion on the matter, “Sadly that shirt is unacceptable for 99% of corporate workplaces.”
However, Jenny replied to the trolls stating that times have changed. “It’s 2022, corporate America business attire is a thing of the past for most companies. My office is 100% casual,” she replied. “Is MY casual.”
