Topless sunbathing

Is topless sunbathing allowed anywhere? As in is it socially acceptable. I'm staying at the sharm plaza and wondering if it is.

It is not allowed, although some Hotels turn a blind eye around pools, but others politely ask to put tops on. 👙👙👙👙

It is also illegal Snim. And from Holiday Watchdog

"TOPLESS SUNBATHING & RECOMMENDED ATTIRE: – is actually illegal in Egypt, which is a predominantly Muslim country. It also states this in Lonely Planet Guide.

Hotel staff are all male & there are notices around several of the hotel’s pools requesting that you don’t sunbathe topless. I’ve read on the forum about some women going topless & the pool staff asking them to cover up. Even if they don’t (for fear of upsetting the guests….cos they want the tourists trade to grow!) it doesn’t make it any more legal & can only add fuel to the theory that some hold, which is that western women are “easy”.

Ladies of all ages will attract plenty of male attention, most of the time it's just a laugh & they don't cross the line but some will try. Be polite but firm & don’t give eye contact, wear shades! "

The wording quoted in reply 6 is also in the Tips thread at the top of the forum as well as Top Q, over on the right.

Wondered when you'd show up Ian ;-) It'll be Bassett next.
