    Ok well it's not as if I could go up to the chick with a ruler! And I didn't have a ruler on hand when I first got home.
    I suppose the femmo's would defend wearing band aids on nipples too...

    I was responding to another poster who did say above the knee.

    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?
    Because I always thought it was common knowledge. Goes to show Bubhub opens my eyes again.

    Mini skirts are mini skirts.... They aren't for work. Really, how hard is this concept?

This was a woman who lead multi-million dollar projects (circa $50m?) and would be earning over $300k.

    Unless they are spending large portions of their day pulling their skirt down to cover their undies or flashing their undies I really don't care if a colleague is wearing a short skirt. I would be much more inclined to raise an eyebrow if she is not a nice person, gossips about others (!), acts thick or inappropriately or expects others to do her job for her.
    I agree I don't think a short skirt makes someone look like a street hooker. As long as they wear it well and are not flashing. I would personally wear one at knee or 3 quarter but I don't judge others.

    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.
    I wouldn't call those places "professional" except maybe the vet surgery. They are more retail, which usually have a uniform of some description. In professional firms where there is no uniform, I can assure you that in my 15 years of working I have never been told what length my skirt should be.

    So we call women who wear them hookers? Not cool. Then again I am a "femmo"

    I see young women wearing mini skirts in clothing retailers all the time... I don't see the issue TBH pretty sure I was served by a woman wearing hot pants at the liquor store the other week. Surely people realise that not all workplaces have the same uniform requirements and to say that bandaids over nipples is wrong, well in some workplaces that would be considered overdressed!

    Considering you've just acknowledged that different workplaces have varying levels of acceptance of skirt lengths then its clearly you who is struggling to understand the concept that in some workplaces a mini skirt mightn't be an issue.
