Dreaming of a beautiful Italian vacation? Do not pack your miniskirt or low rise jeans if you are planning on visiting Castellammare di Stabia. The mayor of this resort town south of Naples, Italy, has ordered his police to fine women who wear ‘very short’ miniskirts.


Mayor Luigi Bobbio got his way when the council approved a ban on "very skimpy clothes." Tourists and locals dressed in low-cut tops, low rise jeans and miniskirts could be found in violation of these new rules and be punished with a fine of up to €500 ($700).


Bobbio said the regulations would help “restore urban decorum and facilitate better civil co-existence” and wants to ensure that people wear “nothing too revealing” on the city’s streets. Some also see it as a means of combating sexual harassment.
