Women Happy to Dress Skimpily for Promotion

Sexy Office AttireA third of women are prepared to dress provocatively in the workplace in order to climb the career ladder, says a report in Britain.

More than 27 percent admitted they would happily wear a slightly skimpy outfit to work if it won them a bonus or promotion. One in 20 of them even owned up to wearing revealing outfits to work on a regular basis, said the poll of 3,000 workers conducted by the fashion forum website theragtrader.

The research revealed that 78 percent of women believe the way they dress affects their day at work. And over half – 54 percent – believe dressing up helps them perform better in the office.

A spokesman for theragtrader.com study said: “The research proves that what you wear to work can really affect your success rate. This relates to both accomplishing more during 9-5 and even climbing the career ladder quicker too.

“Even when working from home, it’s incredible how clothing can influence your productivity. If your clothing is too relaxed in style, it’s harder to get into work mode and all too easy to waste the day.”

The survey also revealed two thirds of women feel more in control if they are smartly dressed, while 61 percent think it gains them more respect from their colleagues.

Women were also more competitive in the office fashion stakes with 48 percent of women admitting there was an element of competition when it came to office attire, compared to just 27 percent of men.

    It’s sad to read this article and say that it is true that more woman would rather dress “skimpy” to get ahead than to rather work their way up the corporate ladder. I think more woman should be aware of there abilities of doing better than to just rely on their mini skirts and low cut tops to get them the job they need. I think that the way our society is, is that it is ok for woman to do that and in reality it shouldn’t be. don’t get me wrong there is a time and a place where a woman should be sexy and have that feeling of over powerment but if that’s what she needs to get ahead and not a strong mind set and dive; is she really a strong independent woman? I love the fashion world and all that it has created but I personally think that it’s sad that skimpy outfits and low cut shirts are what some woman need to get ahead.

    Its true upto some extent.But the ladies can do?The world is just expecting something different from them wherever they go.If they don’t do this stuff they will be surely sidelined.But i think that we must try to help the gals come out of these frame.

    Considering the fact that I’ve worked at my establishment for nearly 15-years, I could only wish that dressing in skimpy clothes would get me a promotion. Although I think I’d scare my boss and coworkers away…hence the reason why clearly women have an advantage in this regard.
