From the 'you couldn't make this up' department

"Bavarians breathed a collective sigh of relief this week when they learned legislation would not force barmaids in beer gardens to cover up. Under the EU's Optical Radiation Directive, employers of staff who work outdoors in high-risk professions must ensure they cover up against the risk of sunburn.

Rumors swept Bavaria early in the week that the law could mean the demise of the dirndl. Bavarian barmaids typically dress in a costume known as a dirndl, a dress and apron with a tight, low-cut top whose figure-hugging effect is enhanced by a short white blouse. Officials finally said that working in a beer garden is not considered a high-risk occupation - at least for sun exposure."
