Braless order at school

6 March 2006. The Star Online

STUDENTS of a secondary school in Singapore, who were recently found to be wearing coloured bras to school, were forced to go braless, reported China Press.

According to the daily, the school only allowed students to wear white, beige and light grey bras.

The daily said most of the affected students were caught wearing coloured bras during a Physical Education class

They were forced to remove the bras in the bathroom, which were then confiscated.

Describing the action as "too much", the daily quoted the students as saying they were mortified, more so as male teachers were present.

The daily said a school spokesman admitted that those who had given the order had "gone overboard."

She said the school had decided to provide white bras for those flouting the rules.

The daily also reported that several schools in the republic were taking different approaches in dealing with the matter.  

One school was already selling bras to students.  

Others had informed the parents before asking the students to leave the school to change their bras.

Similar dress code is also in Japan. There is a school uniform, strict regulation including the underwear and bra. No bicycle allowed, route to/from school to walk written in the student's advice book, schoolbag containing only permitted items...
Many items like lipstick or walkman, of course alcohol, cigarettes are not allowed. Theft among students is very rare.
Teachers might search the students anytime - for body search same sex is obligatory.

In Japan children breaking these rules will be sent home immediately, and parents will be informed, by phonecall and by letter.

I would have thought the same in the very conservative Singapore.
Asking the girls to remove their bras in the toilets is unusual, to say the least...

'Gone overboard' is the correct description of this 'action'.

No, but it is a break of the dressing code of the school.
All students have to use the same clothings, including the underwear.

Next time we will ask, if carrying cigarettes, beer bottles, lipsticks or condoms in the school bag will affect the ability to study, despite these items are listed as 'not permitted'

In Japan school uniform is based on modesty. All children have the same uniform set and the same items in the school bag. - There is no difference, if the parents are rich or poor.

There is no choice, and all students, regardless the age, have to accept that - without any exception. Singapore and Malaysia is about the same, as far as I know.

My own children had never any problem with that, but there are always children, who are trying to break these school uniform rules.
Responsible for that 'breaking of rules' are the parents, who have the duty and the right to control their children before they are sent to school in morning.

It can be seen, through the white blouse, and this is the reason, why all these school girls are using bras with a dark color.

If it is not for anybody to see, why not to change the school uniform rules and prohibit the use of BRA's generally. - For what does such a flat-breast Chinese teenager need a bra anyway?

NO BRA for all girls in any school in Singapore!

When I said, they have gone overboard, I referred to this statement:

Normal course of action would have been indeed, to call the parents, explain the situation and send the girls home, to change for return next day.

Secondary school is a bit too early to show off your wonderbra or whatever is out there.

They probably can see the coloured bras underneath the white shirts but how do they check for the panties?
Do the girls have to walk on a mirror at school entrance? :(

Why not in Europe, Axel? And is it not existing anymore there?

In Europe, I think, there is FKK (nudity culture) existing, where all men, women and children are meeting together, and they are all totally nude...and I think, this movement is legal only in Europe, not heard from anywhere else.

About schoolgirls...hmmm, it depends, how old they are...no problem with that here in Japan.

There are nations, especially in Africa, where you can see in public women of any age without covering their breast.

In Japan by tradition, the uncovered breast of a woman (any age) is not considered against morality, only the genitals have to be covered.

Let me say, in Japan there is a difference between a panty and a bra.

not existing anymore there, Yohan? To the contrary TOO MUCH!

Do I have to say more?

Right, girls in Europe go from:

- Wearing bras with no breasts
- Wearing no bras with young breasts
- Wearing bras again with sagging breasts

And going from point 2 to point 3 can be pretty fast.
Especially without wearing a bra, gravity wins.
Conclusion, women have to wear bras if they do not want to fall into the third category too fast... ;)

Are Singaporeans getting too excited when seeing bras that are not white?
Is it the color or the bra?
Or stupidity from the people who asked them to remove it?
Well, not so stupid actually, I also prefer no bra... ;)

Sometimes I think Singapore is more "eastern" than Vietnam.

Philippines in a Catholic school with nuns is even more 'eastern' than Singapore and Vietnam together.

It's true that you will be forced to get a haircut if your hairstyle is inappropriate (e.g. A 10year student old having a mohawk), or that you would have change your uniform (extra set loaned to you by the school) if yours is broken or altered, but I've never heard of bras being removed. Perhaps its a one-off case in which the teaching staffs failed to handle the situation appropriately.

As many school uniforms have white tops, it's glaringly obvious when a female student wears dark undergarments, especially so when it is so warm in Singapore (you sweat easily, wetting your uniform). I remember that when I was a kid, I often ran around my school during break times, and my uniform would be wet as though I've fallen into a swimming pool.
