A woman was mortified when her apartment complex introduced rules on wearing bikinis.
Business development manager Kristy Miller, from Zetland, Australia, was asked to leave the pool area as her outfit “wasn’t to standards”.
Other women have also been humiliated by the regulations, which state “no G-strings” or “topless” sunbathing is allowed.
It adds that swimmers “must be adequately dressed” – but the resident, along with other local women, don’t think they’ve broken any of these rules.
On a Facebook community page, Kristy wrote: “I was at the lap pool & was approached & told my bikini wasn't to pool standards & to go & put shorts on if I wanted to stay at the pool!
“I was wearing a normal bikini that all the girls wear, a lovely man approached me after & let me know the same guard did the same thing to his girlfriend just prior.”
On the 2GB breakfast show, Kristy added that the security guard was “aggressive and very loud”.
She added: “His exact words were I would need to put shorts on to be allowed in the pool area.”
The resident, who was wearing a Calvin Klein swimsuit when she was approached, isn’t happy that men in budgie smugglers haven’t been punished.
She told the Daily Telegraph: “I pay $600 (£331) a week to live here, I should be able to wear whatever bikini I like.”
Since Kristy’s story has gone viral, she received a “backhanded” apology from her apartment complex’s management team.
In an email, a spokesperson said: “Please kindly read all the rules.
“If everyone follows the building rule, the guard will never bother anyone.
“I apologise for the incident but in the meantime, residents need to follow the rules as well.”
Another lass, Irishwoman Lynne Courtney, 27, was also pulled up for "inappropriate" swimwear at the apartment complex.
The resident, who has lived in the eastern suburbs for almost two years, told Daily Mail Australia : “There was nobody else at the pool but I just felt so embarrassed…
“'He made me feel ashamed in my own pool, it's where I live. I felt it was very sexist, it's not okay.”
