As I said, Lexie doing it in the past doesn't make it ok. I have the same problem with ANY woman wearing low cut tops to work. I don't watch other soaps so I don't know who Natalie Buchanan is, or Dr. Cuddy, or Oliva Benson, or the doctors on ER. It wouldn't matter to me anyway. If I knew who they were and they were wearing plunging tops at work, I would have a problem with that as well. This is not me singling out Stephanie as a slut. I never said she was and in fact I have argued many times, back when she was with Jeremy, that it was not fair to call her a slut when people were doing that. I don't believe Stephanie is a slut. I do believe the character is extremely inappropriately costumed and I'm not going to change my mind about that.

As far as the low-cut top goes....Sami, Chloe, and in the past, Mimi always went around with low-cut tops, no matter what the occasion. Heck, Lexie used to wear them under her lab coat, so I really don't know why this keeps coming up.
It's a problem for me because Mimi, Chloe and Sami did not have corporate jobs. Stephanie dresses inappropriately for work. I don't care what she wears when she's not in the Titan hallway that passes for the office, but when she's on the job she needs to wear something less revealing.
As for Lexie, I don't really remember her wearing anything revealing at work, but if she did, my answer would be the same: it needs to stop.
But Natalie Buchanan does have a corporate job, or she did. I'm saying...it's not uncommon for this on TV shows anymore. Ever see Dr. Cuddy? Olivia Benson (who works with pervs all day?) The doctors on ER? It's not uncommon. And yes, a couple of years ago, Lexie's twins were available for all to see. I don't like it either, but I don't think Stephanie should be bashed solely because of this. If the CEO of Titan has a problem with it, he needs to address it. :D
