    FTR i dont think 15cm is 'too short'. Skirt length doesnt bother me, unless i can see their undies.
    Ah...... I didn't offended over the toilet mat. As if I would get offended about self thing like that.

    Default Short skirts?

    My SIL wears what I would say are short skirts ( and dresses) at our work ( mid way between knee and bum?) but she has killer legs and if anything I'm jealous!

    But she always looks great , suit jackets, heels and the short skirts look great on her - not hooker like in the slightest

    If you don't like it thats fine, but that doesn't mean a woman who wears a shorter skirt deserves to be slagged off as a hooker on the internet.

    I agree with all the others who think mini skirts only belong on teenagers and certainly not at work if you're trying to portray a professional image.

    Who said above the knee was wrong? I didn't. It's when Its closer to your crotch than your knee that I think it's out of line in a professional setting.

    If I had the legs to pull of short skirts- hell yeah I'd wear them!

    Not at work though, but that's because of my job. If I worked in a place where I could where short skirts, and I had the legs to get away with it. I'd do if for sure. Especially in summer!

    And all of the workplaces I've been at did not have a no skirts above the knee requirement. Whats your point?

    At best you could say that some workplaces have this requirement. That hardly equates to your earlier statement of it being common knowledge as a requirement for most workplaces, does it?
