Woman told to remove bra by federal courthouse security

"Thank you ma'am, now I have to check to make sure your thong is within the correct parameters. What's that mean? Umm...just please take you pants off and dance for me."

A Bonners Ferry, Idaho woman wants the U.S. Marshal's Service to apologize and change its security procedures after workers told her she could not enter a federal courthouse while wearing an underwire bra.

Also not allowed in Idaho courthouses? Turtleneck shirts, long skirts, pants-suits or any type of jeans other than hip-huggers. Also, make-up and cleavage showing no less than 40 percent of the breast is required.

Lori Plato says she went to the U.S. District Courthouse in Coeur d'Alene last month for a civil matter when guards told her she must remove her metal underwire bra before going through the security metal detectors.

"Slowly ma'am, do it slowly."

But she says the guards wouldn't even let her go into a courthouse bathroom to remove the undergarment.

"Now smile for the camera, yes, show me sexy, throw your hair back. Now show me shy. Beautiful!"

Instead, they told her to change in her car -- parked on a busy street -- or find a nearby restaurant bathroom.

"Next time ma'am maybe you should let those twins loose."

She says her husband shielded her with a coat while she removed the bra, and -- feeling humiliated -- placed it on the x-ray machine.

"Ah, C-cups. Nice."
