it's bad enough that the uniforms our school requires are so gross. button on apron & zip up top. because of the way the top are designed we all look like bells. all white with green trim. enough about that & if it stopped there i would be okay. but i was just going through the student handbook & it states that only white under pants are permitted and no thongs!!! give me a break. how can they tell us what undies to wear??? everybody knows that white under garments worn underneath white uniforms are gonna show. however bras were not mentioned. i think i'll find some bright red ones to wear. anybody else running into this???? i think if they were gonna tell us what to wear it should have been beige 'cause that dosen't show through. sorry this is so long.

I think if you wear beige panites, no one is going to give you a hard time. I think the rule was intended to prevent show-through of colors and/or patterns.

Sorry about your uniforms!

this is a popular topic. i agree with you in theory. if they do not like your choice of underwear, then they should not require see-through clothes. however, my feelings as a patient are:

1. if you want to wear see-through clothing in another setting, that's fine with me, but when you are required to wear it, it makes me feel like i am violating your privacy by seeing you like that.

2. as has been pointed out before, the trouble with skin-tone underwear is that it looks like you are not wearing anything underneath, causing me to stare at you even more as i try to figure this out.

3. your opinion of me matters to me. i do not want you to think that i think of you as a sex object, rather than a professional. clothes that are not distracting reduce the chances of this misunderstanding occurring.

4. i am fortunate that my work and school allow me to dress the same way i have always dressed (i am not a healthcare worker). however, my advice would be to follow the dress code and not make waves over a relatively minor issue. the object is to pass nursing school.

I think that the green trim sounds silly. I also think that if they put requirements on underwear it should be nude color panties in any style except thongs. My next question is how do they know? Are you going to be changing in front of the instructor. Like you said everyone knows white under white shows, and I would wear nude regardless. I might ask the instructor. I agree no thongs, but I think you should wear the seamless panties so you don't get those panty lines.

We have a white underwear no thing rule...bras included for color.

Almost every white pant out there is thin and it's tacky to wear a thing in a professional setting like that. So no thong.

When it comes to color they are stating common sense for the person who shows up with zebra striped underwear on not knowing it was a bad idea...now he/she knows.

But blame that on the pants not fitting right, not the thong. It shouldn't matter what kind of underwear you want to wear as long as you can't see it.

I've seen a few thongs of bending over classmates....tacky!!!

You think that's bad? When I went to LPN school 12 years ago we had to wear pantyhose - with our pants/scrubs. They said the reason for this is skin sloughing. Like we were going to leave a trail of dead skin cells everywhere we walked. To this day I can't put on a pair of pantyhose without wanting to lose my mind.:nono:

True. True. But, somehow, it's worse when it's a thong. :uhoh3:
