What is the new Hooters uniform?

Hooters is a restaurant chain who are known for their “Hooters Girls:” waitresses who wear low cut tops and shorts as uniform to serve food.

There have been different iterations of the uniform since the restaurant was founded in Florida in the 1980s.

In October 2021, the uniform changed from a short white crop top and orange shorts to a black, or orange, tight t-shirt and “crotch string” uniform shorts.

According to a memo, Hooters supplied each staffer three pairs of the new bottoms – in both black and orange.

Songer explained the black shorts were worn by bartenders or allowed to be worn by waitresses on Fridays. 

The orange shorts are exclusively for waitresses. 

In the uniform policy update, Hooters warned that staff members who felt uncomfortable about the update were welcome to quit reported the New York Post.

“Starting Oct. 4, all Hooters girls should wear the new shorts when working once they arrive to stores,” the policy note read. “The old shorts should not be worn.”

“We would ask that you try them out and, if after two weeks, you are still hesitant to wear the new shorts you may transfer to a non-image based position or resign your position as a Hooters Girl,” the company continued.

“If you choose to resign you will be eligible for rehire.”

What are Hooters waitresses saying about the new uniform?

Waitresses took to TikTok to hit back at their new uniform.

“Oh look, a wedgie!” exclaimed Hooters waitress Kristen Songer, 22, in a trending TikTok video.

“This s*** is rated porn,” said Alabama waitresses Easten Brewer and Katherine Nicole.

Giselle Nguyen, a 20-year-old waitress from Texas, took to TikTok to declare: “I know it ain’t my new uniform shorts. What’s that supposed to fit?!?”

“There’s no longer anything covered by these shorts,” a University of North Carolina student told her 140,000 TikTok followers.

“This is why all the Hooters girls are upset — because this is not what I agreed to wear a year ago when I was hired.”

Can you purchase Hooters merchandise?

In an answer to a Frequently Asked Question about purchasing the uniform, the company states: “The Hooters Girl is every bit as special and coveted to us as she is to you. 

“As a result, the Hooters Girl uniform is only available to actively employed Hooters Girls.” 

It goes on to suggest that the company wants to keep its staffers safe. 

“We are very protective of our girls and our brand.”

Yet the classic orange shorts that have since been discontinued as the official uniform, can be bought by customers.  

“We do, however, offer the classic Hooters Girl orange shorts,” according to the site. 

“We also sell a ribbed tank top and the lycra tank top just like our girls wear.”
