Schools in Connecticut are planning to ban students from wearing tight-fitting clothes.
Board members in Meriden, Connecticut are considering banning items such as leggings
, jeggings, leotards, skinny jeans and tight tops, labelling these form-fitting clothes as "inappropriate".
Any other items which are deemed to show too much of a student's shape, including clothing with lycra or spandex, will also be prohibited.
WFSB reported that the new rules state that "undergarments and private body areas must not be evident or visible through clothing".
According to the local Board of Education members had decided to come up with new restrictions after a lack of consistency was displayed throughout the area's schools.
The proposals have been met with some controversy, with some teachers noting that the debate was now causing more distractions from learning than the supposedly revealing clothes worn by the students.
