Are shorts and vest tops allowed

Can anyone tell me if women can wear shorts and vest tops outside of the hotel complex. I've been told today that they shouldn't and am a bit concerned as that is what i live in in hot weather.

Any help much appreciated.

Yes they are allowed but expect to be stared at.

Sousse is a working town, not everyone is on holiday nor are they all working in the tourist industry so some Tunisians will still find so much flesh on show offensive. I personally cover up that little bit more in Sousse then i would in say PEK. I especially cover up when in the medina - too many people too close for comfort - but then you may find your comfort level is different then mine.

Do make sure you cover up or carry something to cover yourself with when visiting any religous sites
