Woman Gets Harassed for Wearing Skimpy Dress to Wedding
A woman has been subjected to harassment after wearing an extremely tight-fitting number to a wedding.
Fitness coach Liz Krueger, 31, recently wore the skin-tight, peach mini-dress to a wedding in Minneapolis, where she feels it may have been viewed as a little too risque.
“Maybe I shocked a few people in the Midwest,” she told Inside Edition. “I turned to look and there was a small group of women, like, laughing."
After the wedding, she posted a photo on Instagram of her outfit. That's when the shaming went public.
"That dress screams, 'Look at me,'" one commenter said.
"The biggest no-no," said another.
Yet another posted: "It'd be like a guy showing up to a wedding in a Speedo!"
Krueger was dumbfounded by the commentary.

"It was very shocking to me," she said. "I'm not used to that negative feedback," she said.
But others were opposed to the head-turning frock, with one supporter saying: "If you have a body like that — you absolutely should wear a dress like that! Good for you!”
Lauren Kay of TheKnot.com told Inside Edition that an outfit that won't pull attention away from the bride is usually best. "As a guest, you want to fly under the radar," Kay said.
But Krueger disagrees.
"There are people out there who say, ‘This is not a respectful thing to wear to a wedding because it sort of detracts from the bride and the event,” she said. "I wasn't there to upstage the bride. I think she looked beautiful and the attention was on her."
