A bizarre bikini ban at a Sydney inner city apartment complex has sparked outrage and left a shocked resident humiliated.
Business development manager Kristy Miller, 39, has recalled her horror of being ordered by a security guard to leave the pool area at her Emerald Park complex in Zetland earlier this week because her swimsuit ‘wasn’t to pool standards’.
Ms Miller, who recently moved into the complex, described the ordeal as ‘really humiliating and intimidating’.
‘He was very aggressive and very loud. His exact words were I would need to put shorts on to be allowed in the pool area,’ Ms Miller told 2GB breakfast host Ben Fordham on Wednesday.

‘It was a normal bikini, not a g-string bikini or anything like that.’
‘If you go to Bondi Beach people are wearing a lot skimpier bikinis.’
She also claimed several residents later told her the security guard was taking photos of all women at the pool on the day, as evidence, prompting a shocked response from Fordham.
Ms Miller was inundated with comments from other women who had similar stories after she recalled her mortifying ordeal on social media.
‘I was at the lap pool & was approached & told my bikini wasn’t to pool standards & to go & put shorts on if I wanted to stay at the pool! I was wearing a normal bikini that all the girls wear, a lovely man approached me after & let me know the same guard did the same thing to his girlfriend just prior,’ Ms Miller posted on a local community Facebook page.

Ms Miller hasn’t ruled out taking the matter further.
‘Please get in touch with me as I’m appalled a male security guard thinks he has the right to tell females if their bikinis are appropriate,’ her Facebook post continued.
‘I’ve contacted my real estate & Fair trading which have advised me this is not appropriate & to get legal advice which I’m in the process of doing.
‘Please reach out if he also harassed you so we can ensure females aren’t humiliated and degraded in the place they live.

Ms Miller has received an emailed ‘backhanded’ apology from building management about the security guard’s behaviour but was warned to wear appropriate attire when using the common pool areas.
New signs have since been erected in the complex pool areas.
‘Please kindly read all the rules. If everyone follows the building rule, the guard will never bother anyone. I apologise for the incident but in the meantime, residents need to follow the rules as well,’ the email states.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Emerald Park and Ms Miller for further comment.
