French fashion house Herve Leger is under intense scrutiny following comments made by one of their managing directors denoting the “types” of women that should not wear Leger’s signature bandage dress.

Patrick Couderc, Managing Director of Herve Leger London, listed lesbians, “voluptuous” women, and those with “very prominent hips and a very flat chest” as just three of the kinds of women he deemed unworthy of slipping into the iconic, skin-tight dress worn by everyone from Rihanna to Caitlyn Jenner.

“If you’re a committed lesbian and you are wearing trousers all your life, you won’t want to buy a Leger dress,” he told the Daily Mail. “Lesbians would want to be rather butch and leisurely.”

Comedian (and newly minted Fashion Police co-host) Margaret Cho sounded off on Twitter, airing her (and the community at large’s) grievances.
