Sen. Geraldine Thompson, D-Orlando, filed a bill (SB 104) this week that would prevent retailers from allowing customers to try on “intimate apparel” unless the items are tried on over clothing or disposable shields are used. If customers fail to comply, tried-on items would be considered defective and could not be sold by the stores.

The bill, which will be considered during the 2016 legislative session, defines intimate apparel as including “lower undergarments and swimsuit bottoms.”

Thompson proposed a nearly identical bill during the 2015 legislative session but it died in a Senate committee.
