Idaho cheerleaders told to cover up too revealing outfits after complaintsSeptember 25th, 2008 - 6:29 pm ICT by ANI
London, Sept 25 (ANI): Cheerleaders from University of Idaho have ditched their uniforms for a more modest outfit following the complaints from spectators, who claimed that they were too revealing.
The fans of the Vandals, Universitys American football team, were upset that the cheerleaders two-piece uniforms tops little bigger than a bra, and short skirts that looked like more hot pants were too revealing.
Bruce Pitman, the university dean, said that although there were a number of fans who liked them, the outfits had now been deemed inappropriate.
Some of the cheerleaders had also complained that the outfits were not comfortable and did not suit their figures.
“Girls are just bigger these days, not everybody’’s a size zero,” Telegraph quoted Shelly Robson, a fundraiser for the university’’s athletics department, as saying.
“We”re not being a bunch of prudes,” she added.
The new outfits feature less revealing tops and skirts that are six inches longer.
Earlier this year the Vandals have altered uniforms for taste reasons. The American football team took the university logo an I off the seat of their trousers after the first game of the season. (ANI)
