A mum wearing a backless top was ordered to leave a garden centre after staff accused her of dressing “inappropriately”.
Leanne Kennedy was buying some outdoors equipment in The Range, in Gosport, Hants., when she says she was left “traumatised” by the encounter.
The 30-year-old was approached by a member of staff and told to leave the premises or cover up if she wanted to continue shopping.
“It must have been about 2pm, and the weather was 24C.
“I’d just gone in to buy some gardening supplies to spend the afternoon with my daughter in the garden.All of a sudden I was approached, not very discretely, and told, in front of other customers, that what I was wearing wasn’t appropriate, and that I had to put a top on or leave.
I thought she was joking, I was wearing a normal summer outfit.
“When I tried to laugh it off, she said that if a man came in without a top on, they would say the same thing.
But after returning home, Leanne decided to lodge a complaint with the shop.
