Why does places have dress code?

I’m 15 and got asked to intern one day a week at our courthouse. Mom’s a lawyer and thought it was dope. She took me to get cloths to wear cause of dress code. OMG! WTF? the dc say ‘professional attire’. No leggings no tunic no tennis shoes. skirt or dress pants are fine. Mom is tall and size 2. I wear size plus. nothing for me to try any of her stuff so we went shopping at a store. Woman at store got me pants to try not comfortable. Mom said a dress or skirt would be best. Lady there found me skirt I tried on. Said I’d need 3x pantyhose to wear. Mom and lady said I’d have to wear pantyhose at courthouse. Mom and lady in store showed me it’s required for ‘professional attire.’ Mom bought me a bunch and her some her size. She said I’d tear some so xtra are good.
First day I hate pantyhose! Can’t get them on and not good to go pee. They make shoes feel weird too. Who makes dress codes? Why is only females have to dress code too?

  • We all have dress code! If you don't like pantyhose don't wear it. You could wear a female business suit.
