What the heck was the bodysuit? I guess it never reached the backwaters of rural New Zealand. Which was probably a good thing. You don't want to be tramping the bush in pink lycra.

As for work dress code - well, I work in a callcentre and all our customer contact is over the phone, so dresscode is casual. We are supposed to not wear t-shirts with printed things on them, so slogans and bands and stuff like that are not permitted - the shirts have to be plain or with nothing more than a small brand logo (although lots of people do wear t-shirts like that and I don't think anyone was sent home yet). They have to have at least a short sleeve - no muscle tees or vests, no strappy tops for the girls. Shoulders and stomachs must be covered. Trousers must be full length, shorts not permitted (not really a bother, it never gets hot enough in this country that you'd need to wear shorts, and anyway they always have the AC turned on too bloody cold anyway). Footwear is not supposed to include trainers (sneakers) but I guess that's more for safety reasons than anything else - the only time anyone fell on the stairs at work they were rushing down and wearing trainers.

I find it amusing that in a place where almost total freedom of dress is permitted, everyone wears almost exactly the same - jeans and t-shirts.

I was asking myself the same thing. And have the feeling there's not too much loss in not knowing either ;)

It's one of those all-in-ones like a leotard but with fasteners at the crotch. It allowed for a smooth line when used as a top. I think in UK they were called a 'body'. (with piccie)

Now I'm imagining you beating about the bush in a pink bodysuit. Thanks for that one mate.
