    Girl: lifts up arms and shows .00009 percent of stomach and gets sent to the office for distracting the guys

      This literally happened to me. I put my backpack on and it lifted my shirt up so that you could see like an inch of my stomach... The campus supervisor saw this and told me to come with him to the office. I fixed my shirt and it covered my stomach completely and apologized to the guy. He then proceeded to tell me that I still had to go the the office or else I would get a detention. I wasn't about to give up my lunch so I went with him but I was soooo pissed.

      Moral of the story, 50 year old men should not be regulating school dress codes

      One of my teachers just came up to me because I was raising my hand for a question and forgot that I had a crop top on. Keep in mind I'm bisexual and I am mostly into women so when my teacher came and said I was distracting the guys, I almost laughed when she told me that. I am happy I held in that laugh. My bff came and just started to laugh at me, like my bff does.

      My high school from southern California had a lax dress code that was never enforced. You would see a lot of short shorts and bra straps during the summer. I got super horny and distracted during those hot days, but somehow, I manage to get good grades and was one of the top students in my classes.

      We use both, we use imperial still for tailoring. The 42 waistband means 42 inches. So saying it for the tie is correct. When we do construction we use the metric. So for human measurements we use imperial for pretty much everything else we use metric.

    Speaking as a Brit this is true, when i needed to study for exams (GSCEs) in school, my black school shoes had been stolen from my locker so i had to wear my sports trainers I'd normally have to wear for PE, the school forced me to go home and come back with another pair of shoes when i needed to prepare for exams, my mum wasn't pleased with the school as you can imagine

      It’s like they wanted us to get hit by a car on the way in to school.

    It’s funny, I live in Canada but I went to a uniformed (French) Catholic school, so I actually related more to the British side of these skits. At my school they would make sure girls skirts were longer than the tips of their fingers, all bits of the uniform needed to be manufactured by the uniform company (McCarthy’s), we weren’t allowed to wear coats or non uniformed sweaters in class (going to school in them was fine though, because Canada) and once a month we could pay $2 to wear our own clothes, but then had to follow dress down dress code lol. Honestly it was a mix of both sides.

    Luckily at my school they don’t care what we wear. I’ve overheard teachers talking about it and one of them said “it’s because we want the students to express themselves” so I’m really happy we don’t have dress codes because I like dressing up comfortably

    At my old schools they would take the extra mile to measure the girl's skirts to make sure they weren't "too short". So all the girls that were on the thicker side and had longer arms (like me) were dress coded ALL the time, while other girls could wear short shorts and long shirts that made it look like they came to school with no pants on. Hell, even the cheer leading uniforms violated the dress code but they didn't care unless you chose to dress like that.

    Now, my new school doesn't care what you wear unless you went to school in undergarments or nude.

  • •PrinceInsecurity•

    Some teachers are so stuck up about it too! I remember one time the air conditioner had been broken and it was so hot in the school I was dying, I had a heavier jacket on so I went out to my locker to switch it for a lighter one. I was wearing a shirt with a cut out on the shoulders. You see where I'm going with this. The supervisor in the hall freaked out and yelled at me about the dress code for a solid 5 minutes until I finally cut in and said I was just changing out jackets. (American school)

    I used to go to a British school, not even the teachers liked the uniforms. I overheard some teachers talking to a student about barbed wire being in the blazer collars (ik that they didn't mean it literally, but still) and, in an English class about distopia, uniforms were an example, and the teacher said stuff about how uniforms take away the feeling of individuality. Sure, there were teachers that strictly enforced it, but the chill teachers admitted to hating the school system just as much as the students did.

    When I was in high school (or college...as the Brits call it) we couldn't have distracting hair color as it promoted gang violence.

    This was enforced my senior year,much after the ban of bandanas.

    I could paint a photo of this time,aka 2007-08. It would take a whole short story.

      I went to school in Texas. If you wore a tank top, the straps had to be at least 2” wide. They also made us stand with our arms down at our sides and fingers stretched out. Your shorts or skirt had to go past your fingertips. Unless you were a cheerleader, of course. 😒

    Can't relate to either one of these ones. Went to school in Sweden and here it's really relaxed regarding dress code in school. I am a girl and I always wore short skirts and dresses, crop tops and tank tops when it was warm. No one really cared. We didn't have to address the teachers by any titles or their last names either.

    The teachers at my school have mostly given up on enforcing dress code. I go to such a large school that teachers are outnumbered enough that they could never truly stop everyone from wearing crop tops or whatever. There would be at least a few hundred kids in the office everyday if it was truly enforced.

    I’m from Canada and our schools are chill with the dress code. You can wear anything you as long as it doesn’t have discrimination of any sort in the clothing or gang related stuff. Aside from that, you could wear a sports bra to school and everyone would be fine with it. But it’s also freezing most of the time there so-

    In my school (in canada) we have uniforms but they decided that some rules of the dress code were shit so the students council changed some. Now nobody mesures the girls skirt, you can choose your uniform from both the girl and boy set regardless of your gender and like a month ago boys finally got the permission to not wear the tie. Thats only some of them but it makes school more enjoyable. Obviously were still trying to change other stuff but thats a good start

I was wearing shorts that were “too short”. All the teachers were staring at me and not a SINGLE student looked at me. I felt rly uncomfy with the adults looking at me. They made me go home even tho I was there for one 50 minute class and it being the last day of school-

    ACCURATE!! I went to a charter school for jr. high. We had to wear uniforms of specific colors. For shirts, we could only wear red, navy blue, white, or hunter green. One day, I wore a darker red shirt than I normally wore. I wasn't allowed to wear that shirt ever again. I couldn't wear it to school, and it was a stiff pollo shirt so I wasn't gonna wear it unless I had to. 🙄

    The high school I went to (Catholic) had our dress code as it had to be a uniform. They changed the kilt to a skort a year before I went, though you could still wear a kilt for the next couple of years I guess, but it had to be a certain length (though they didn't actually measure you I guess they just occasionally checked to see if they could see your panties which is creepy I guess), or girls could wear the pants (and thankfully they didn't care if you had on the guys or the girls pants, because most of us girls opted for pockets) and the only rule that was strictly enforced was that our shirts had to be tucked in (we didn't have polo shirts at our school yet) but you could get around it by rolling up the shirt and hoping it didn't come undone or looked fake, or wearing the vest and just bunching it up into there, which a lot of us did because it was more comfortable than tucking it in. We also had to wear black dress shoes with no high heels in addition to not colouring our hair fun anime colours (you could colour your hair with natural type colours. I almost got in trouble for having the bottom layer of my hair dyed pink, but they let it slide because it was barely visible and was washing out by the end of summer anyways. They had no problem with my black hair, white under layer, and red chunky highlights though, lol)

    We also had at least 1 day of month where you could wear normal clothes, which was usually the last Friday of the month (and Halloween if you didn't have a costume) and I think the rules were no mini skirts, no short shorts, and no spaghetti straps.

    I remember going into a class one day (it was a football game day- dress up day at my high school) and my friend said a boy was wearing a tank top that made it easy to see most of his chest. He wasn’t dress coded, but she was because her shorts were half an inch shorter than they should’ve been. This is why I walk with my arms crossed so the dress code monitors in the halls can’t tell where my fingertips are compared to my shorts ;-;

    Girls hair has to be tied back using ties that are aligned with the color code and school uniform.

    For the black girls, they're not allowed to have false hair braids which honestly, why??? Atleast this was the case at the school I went to I think now it's been changed however it can't be colorful braids and no bright beads etc. Only black.

    Shirts have to be tucked in at all times

    Ties can't be too long or short

    No make up whatsoever

    No died hair

    School uniform dresses can't be more than an inch above the knee

    No rings or jewelry other than a watch and only very basic silver studs or sleepers in the ears

    Your uniform socks have to be folded or pulled up depends on the school uniform.

    I think it's safe to say due to the past European influence, schools are very much the same as in the UK. Even our uniforms are similar. Blazer, tie etc
    My cousin in Australia also has to wear uniforms with a strict code.

    I go to a British school and it was a nine uniform day so I wore my ripped jeans and a Christmas jumper. I was just minding my own business when my (Female) teacher started yelling at me for wearing something that showed “Too much skin” because apparently I was distracting the boys.So I replied with “Well, how about instead of punishing girls you should teach boys to be more respectful.” Got sent to detention but it was SO worth it.

    At my middle school, there was a rule that you could have holes in your pants as long as it was at least 3 inches below the knee. I had a pair of jeans that I didn’t care much about but were still in perfect condition until a friend and I poked a small hole into the ankle of those jeans with a pencil. It was a small, hardly visible hole that your couldn’t really see through and it was located at the front. Later that day, while returning to class from the bathroom, a teacher pulled me aside and fussed me out for dressing inappropriately and not following school dress code. I had on the jeans and a gray hoodie, so I was really confused and asked her what she meant. She pointed at the hole in my jeans and told me that I was showing too much skin and would influence other, younger students to do the same thing. While she was writing home up a slip to the office. I was really mad but as a fairly new student, I wasn’t fully aware of the dress code and, even if I did, I was too scared of confrontation that I probably wouldn’t have done anything about it anyways.

    I’m in college now and am loving getting to dress how I want when I want. Yay college.

Cannot show collarbones, wear headbands/ hats, all coats must be in your locker before class (Michigan), and backpacks are not allowed in the class rooms without a special pass (some teachers will make you put it away anyway) though we are still expected to have our books with us at all times. Public high school. Plus some other little policies to make everyone’s lives a little worse.

    Ok the America one is so relatable. Our school just made a rule that no pajama pants or hoodies are allowed anymore but it was only for the middle school which was dumb like it’s cold outside and I just sometimes don’t feel like getting all dressed up is that a issue? So I made a petition and over 200 people have signed it and we are having a peaceful protest next week because it’s ridiculous how they won’t even let us wear ripped jeans either. I’ve also been called down to the office for this like ten times and they have called my parents every time and my parents actually agree with me and every time they get a call they are like “ is she breaking any school rules… no so she fine”

      I can some wgat agree with the ripped jeans. When they were really becoming popular, it became very hard to find any without rips. Or that the rips cant go past a certain place (above mid-thigh or above knees etc) but so many ripped jeans do or they dont come with those things behind the rips. Even I, someone who isnt interested in ripped jeans, has a hard time finding the ones without rips(that are also affordable)

    I hate the dress code so much in America. My school went through a phase when my principal felt like she needed to reinforce rules so she had the teachers send any girls who were wearing distressed Jean's to the office/Nurses office to get the holes above their knee measured. If the hole was more than 4 inches above the knee you got a detention because it was "Showing too much" so like anybody wouldve done the girls wore skin colored leggings under them so it technically wasnt showing anything. Well the principal didnt like that so she made a new rule that if you were going to wear distressed Jean's to school, you needed to have leggings under them that were a bright vivid color. Well in 8th grade there wasnt much for us to do so we all just went with it, then after like a month she made a rule for the boys that if they were wearing shorts they were not allowed to be above the knee or you were getting suspended for 2 days. Than everybody's parents got involved there was a lot of "I'm not sending my kid to school with these stupid rules" well apparently the principal didnt care and then she also took a step further and decided to give us a detention for however many peircings/ tattoos you have (I have 2 face peircings, my ears pierced, and a little bat tattoo on my wrist because I got matching tattoos with my mom for my birthday) anyway, she decided to give anyone with a tattoo or peircings detention because its, and I quote "Not appropriate for kids your age to be exposed to stuff like that" after that my mom had enough and since COVID was just beginning anyway she pulled me and my brother out of school. And incase of anyone was wondering, none of this that I just listed above was apart of their dress code handbook, no this is not the first problem we've had with the school, and NO this was NOT a private school, this was a minimum wage public school in the middle of the "Country side" and in case you were also wondering, No the super intendant didn't do anything about it because he was having an affair with the principal, Thank you for you're time:]

    My high school was pretty average with the dress code for public american schools, but my senior year there was a new principal and the first thing he did was make a dress code video for people to watch to know what not to wear. The catch is that the video mainly featured girls and only included one example with a guy (if I remember correctly). The parents and students went heywire and the story went viral on local social media. After that, everyone, especially girls, were allowed to wear whatever they wanted. I never saw anyone get dress coded after that. I doubt the school will ever go back to any dress code as similar to the video’s one if they get one back again at all.

      One time a teach told me something that made that rule make a little more sense (don’t get me wrong I still think the rule is ridiculous), it’s not the shoulders that are attractive it’s that most spaghetti straps show cleavage. I guess that kinda makes sense, but then why does the rule start in kindergarten!!! I live in the desert! What’s distracting to other kids if a little girl is wearing shorts and a tank top in 100+ degree whether. And just to make it clear I’ve only seen it reinforces on girls.
