    You be the judge! Pregnant Woman Denied Service at Restaurant

    So a pregnant woman was denied service at a restaurant because her crop top was "violating their health code".

    Was the restaurant wrong?

    Well, I think so - how does an exposed pregnant belly violate a health code any more than those stupid shoulder tops? Or bare arms, or leg-exposing shorts, or feet in sandals?

    If they allow non-pregnant crop tops then yes they were wrong. If they have a firm no crop top rule then they weren't wrong - although they were wrong about the health code violation part.

    The waitress over-reacted and/or didn't understand the health code, which the restaurant appears to be copping to.

    The post and picture are gone, so I don't know what it looked like, but I'm assuming it was a "no shirt, no shoes, no service" kind of thing. Given that, I'm on Team WOG - crop tops or not, pregnancy irrelevant.

    It looked like something you might see in a maternity photo shoot. Cropped top stopping right below her breasts, long skirt, large belly bump. Not a great fashion choice but not a health code violation.

    I saw it. Looked like a bra, tucked below her boobs. To me, a crop top means there's a strip of the belly showing, not the entire belly. And it's not just a "bump", she's 6.5 months pregnant with twins.

    Totally tacky, IMO, and she was obviously looking for attention, given that the shirt has WEIRDO written across it.

    Here is her outfit. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...-crop-top.html





    I agree that it was purely an aesthetic violation. However, ther was a LOT of skin exposed vs just a half shirt. I don't think that's a health dept violation, I don't think.
