Paige Spiranac Calls Out LPGA’s New Dress Code Against Sexy Tops, Stands Up For Plunging Necklines
Last week, Emily Ratajkowski said she is completely fed up with people who are “offended by breasts.” Now Paige Spiranac is standing up for female golfers who are blessed with breasts. Did you have any idea that there was a war on breasts? And if so why?
The LPGA Tour established a strict dress code last week and Spiranac was not a fan of the new rules, despite not having a spot on the LPGA. The new guidelines include no leggings unless under a skirt, no jogging bottoms, and no plunging necklines. Spiranac, who is known for her tantalizing photos on Instagram, wrote an article on Forbes arguing against the new prohibitive dress code.
“Take the vague banning of ‘plunging necklines.’ What constitutes a plunging neckline? Most likely, this edict was put into place to eliminate the presence of cleavage. In that case, a curvier, fuller-figured woman would be chided and fined far more often than a woman with a smaller bust. In a world where women are continually and unwantedly sexualized, this new rule serves as yet another reason for women to feel ashamed of their bodies, and a reminder that to be respected, they must alter their behavior because of outside perception.”
Spiranac said that “by labeling women as looking ‘unprofessional’ when showing cleavage or shorts worn under a skirt, the LPGA is perpetrating the outdated stereotypes about the connection between what a woman wears and her morals, as well as insinuating that women do not have control over the perception of their bodies, but rather that they must bend to the every whim of the male gaze.”
On her Instagram, Spiranac continued to share photos of herself in outfits that would definitely be deemed “too sexy” for the LPGA.
I love golf. I love the golf swing. I love learning everything I can about the game. I love practicing. I don't love competing and that's a fight I've been dealing with the last few years. People think that "making it" is just about ability but there's so much more to it. Especially with golf, being mentally strong is 90% of the game. Last year I was beat up mentally and was dealing with more than anyone could imagine behind closed doors. It took a toll on me and I started to hate this game I love so dearly. I played around 20 tournaments, made money in all but 2 and got a win as my first year as a pro. However I hated every second of it and was having breakdowns because of all the harassment, death threats, and other problems I wish to keep private. This year I have taken some time off from competing to focus on myself and my passions which is being an ambassador for cyberbullying, doing clinics for young girls and boys, and creating fun videos to hopefully help grow the game. Within this time I've been grinding on my swing and fitness and it's by far the best my swing as felt ever. I appreciate all the support and thank you for following my journey! I always try to be as honest as possible about what I'm going through in hopes I can help others but also show that no matter how perfect or easy someone's life might appear on social media that we are all dealing with our own personal battles. Again thank you for following and always making my day better with every positive comment☺️😘❤️
I have always had a lot of movement in my swing. Because of my squat motion on my downswing I will always have some movement but I'm trying to stabilize and sync up my upper body and lower. Swipe to see the "stop drill" I do during every practice because it helps me feel connected. This is a great drill for everyone! Much harder than it looks haha. Also follow me on the @18birdiesapp where I post about my practice and rounds. Plus you can compete against me! #nationalgolfday💚
