A New Hanover, NC school district is considering making some changes to its dress code, including banning students from wearing tight pants like leggings or skinny jeans unless the they also wear tops long enough to completely cover their behinds. According to WECT, Jeannette Nichols, the New Hanover County School Board Vice Chair, attributed the idea to "bigger girls" getting bullied for wearing tight pants.

On Monday, the school district's official Twitter account tweeted a request for feedback about possible dress code changes, and included the hashtag #policy8520.
