    Do they have very large breasts were their cleavage line starts high up on their chests?

    I swear, I don't know what it is about dressing appropriately that's so tough to understand.
    I don't either. I remember the days when underwear used to be under the clothes.

    I agree, it has nothing to do with being young! I am 18 and would never think of dressing like that to a clinical! I wouldn't know this because I am a pre-nursing student, but don't they go over dress codes in clinicals? If so, there is no excuses. I mean if you want to wear fashionable clothes out, go for it! I have to admit I don't dress completely "professional" all the time (who does?!), but when I go to work/classes (I am a pre-nursing student so no clinicals yet for me!) I wouldn't think of dressing unprofessional..

    Okay.... it would be totally inappropriate to say that out loud, but admittedly, I just about fell outta my seat laughing! :roll :roll :roll :roll

    How do you define "cleavage"? You know, there are also different types of cleavage, too. Would they succumb to the pen test, or do their shirts just not cover enough?
