If you look up #TeacherBae on any social media you will probably find several photos of Patrice Brown of Atlanta, GA. She is a paraprofessional in an Atlanta Public School fourth grade class. So, why the hashtag? Patrice Brown posted several photos of herself on Instagram. In the photos Patrice was wearing what you might call bodycon dresses. She was usually standing in her classroom.
Bodycon dresses are usually made of lycra or some blend of lycra and polyester. They are form fitting and cling to the body from the breasts to the lower hem. Bodycon dresses have been a staple in every young woman's wardrobe for nearly 20 years. This fashion phenomenon began in the early nineties when Herve Peugnet created the first 'bandage dress' for his fashion line, Herve Leger.
Bodycon dresses are usually seen in clubs, at parties, sporting events and other social settings. For years there has been a debate over whether these dresses are appropriate for work. Some say it depends on what type of job you have. Others think that they are party dresses therefore, they don't belong in the workplace. The question today is do they belong in the classroom, on a teacher, in front of pre-teen boys?
I would like to hear from you. What do you think?
