We are now well into the midst of returning to our favourite bars and pubs and socialising with our friends.

And with it comes the opportunity to dig out our finest clobber. Whether putting gel in your hair, killing your feet in six inch heels, or putting on a new frock, everyone has their own way of dressing up for a night on the town.

There's no doubt that many people choose to be a little more risque and perhaps pop on something a little more daring than they might wear to a morning meeting with their boss.

But should there be restrictions on how far is too far when showing off our best assets?

A 20-year-old was thrown out of Wetherspoons for her attire
A 20-year-old was thrown out of Wetherspoons for her attire

The issue arose after two 20-year-old women were refused service at a Wetherspoons pub after a manager said their tops were "inappropriate" for the venue.

Tech worker Mollie Wood and pal Amy Lee claimed they were left feeling humiliated after being refused service at Wetherspoons for her outfit being told her cleavage was “equal to a man being shirtless” - after they had been declined service too.

Both were dressed in black halterneck crop tops, ankle-length skirts and trainers as the country basked in 28C heat as they went to grab some food and a drink at the Back of Beyond pub in Reading, Berks, at 8pm on Sunday.

So were 'Spoons' right or wrong. Two of our female reporters have shared their very different thoughts.

'A patch of cloth over your nipple does not qualify as 'dressed'.' - Lisa Baxter

Life Writer, Lisa Baxter

Firstly, yes I am well into my fourth decade so I understand my view is largely influenced by my age, but I still think these two beautiful girls should seriously re-think their wardrobe.

They're beautiful, their hair, make-up, skirts - all fabulous. The tops? Well, can they even be classed as that?

I have underwear that's more modest. In fact, ALL of my underwear is more modest.

It's the under-boob thing I'm not a fan of, it's just too much.

Now, before anyone starts with the whole 'victim-blaming' argument, stop. This is not the issue. Nobody sexually harassed them and that's not the issue. I 100 per cent believe men/boys should behave in a way that's right and moral and legal regardless of what a woman is wearing. But that's not what this is about, so don't go there.

This is a simple question of what looks 'appropriate' and I honestly don't think having half of each boob out IS appropriate. Would I have worn it in my twenties? No. Will I be happy with my daughter wearing it? No.

It's a simple case of exposure. There's just no need to go out exposing a large amount of under and/or side boob, and the reason is, it doesn't look nice.

Should Weatherspoons have thrown them out? Probably not, it's a bit OTT. But wearing a cropped fitted top without half the boob out will look far nicer, girls.

Same as I hate the whole mirror-selfies /pouting/scary full-on make-up and excessive beautifying of this generation. Girls just need to realise they're already beautiful without all this. Just don't try so hard and be natural. You're young, you don't need any of it, and going out with just a patch of cloth over your nipple does not qualify as 'dressed'.

Were Wetherspoons right to ban the girls?

'It's Wetherspoons not The Ritz' - Lucy Marshall

Sorry, you're offended by a top?

For centuries women have been told what to wear by men and we have fought long and hard to fight for our rights to express ourselves and not be oppressed.

So do I care what some old fuddy duddy who probably hasn't showered in a week thinks of what I wear? No I don't.

I completely respect that there is a time and a place for wearing what you like. You go to work - you dress smart. You go swimming - you wear a costume or trunks. You go to a wedding - you dress formally.

Wearing swimming trunks to a board room meeting would obviously be completely inappropriate. And that's exactly why the saying 'there's a time and a place' fits with this debate.

If a 20-year-old girl goes on a night out to have fun with her friends, a fun and playful outfit goes hand in hand.

It doesn't mean "she wants it" or is trying to be overtly promiscuous, these tops are hot on trend right now and she likes the fashion. And even if she was trying to look hot to seek attention from a potential partner - news flash, a lot of people meet their partners in bars it's a great way to do so.

What's more, she is just a year older than being a teenager. Sorry if she doesn't want to dress like some head teacher who has had the same job for 40 years, spends her evening stroking her 15 cats and who dresses like an old maid. She's 20.

Dressing conservatively is completely fine too, that is a person's choice. It's funny how choice only seems to be deemed acceptable one way and not the other.

And let's be real, this is Wetherspoons. It might be different if she was going to The Ritz.

There is no Wetherspoons regulation that says there is a dress code for the venue. I've seen people in Wetherspoons punching people, come in smelling bad or with no teeth, but somehow a woman's top is the thing that's causing the uproar. How does that make sense?

I think there's nothing wrong with the outfit as long as the woman doesn't fall out of the top and becomes exposed, it's just a top. Relax.
