Family Only Lingerie Shop

"Family Only" has become a common sign outside many businesses in Saudi Arabia.  Restaurants have historically had family sections apart from single men's sections.  But now lingerie shops are required by law to restrict single men from going inside without a female family member.   It's always confusing to me to see window displays such as this sporting a half naked headless mannequin, yet women in public must be totally covered - usually in black formless cloaks - from head to toe.

I cannot reconcile the censorship of pictures of 2 girls that you showed a few days ago, with this kind of store display.
