But Brabin - the shadow culture secretary and MP for Batley and Spen in West Yorkshire - was harassed on social media because of the outfit she was wearing, because she dared to wear an off-the-shoulder top in parliament.
Women, men have applauded the Labour MP for an "amazing retort", however, there still remain people who did not stop after her reply and repeated their disagreement with Brabin's choice of the outfit of Parliamentary debate.
Yet that doesn't stop people concentrating on - and judging us for - what we're wearing, and what we look like.
Tracy responded by tweeting: "Sorry I don't have time to reply to all of you commenting on this but I can confirm I'm not. Who knew people could get so emotional over a shoulder".
Brabin, a former actress who appeared in shows including Coronation Street, The Ghost Hunter and EastEnders, wore the outfit while raising a point of order on Downing Street's decision to order senior journalists from some major news organisations to leave before a briefing on Boris Johnson's Brexit plans.
Tracy Brabin said the media's focus on her off-the-shoulder top in parliament is a ideal example of everyday sexism.
Meanwhile, Brabin's critics have doubled down, arguing that the presence of a shoulder suggests that she has "no respect for Parliament".
She told BBC Breakfast it was her responsibility to "call it out".
She said her slightly off-the-shoulder dress had slipped a little as she leant forward to speak.
The post gained more than 3,700 comments, including one asking her to "put some clothes on love" and others saying she looked "drunk", "classless" and like a "slapper".
Most internet users believed that her dress was "inappropriate" and "unprofessional", there were others who called out the trolls for "sexism".
Corrie fans will recognise the MP for her role as Tricia Armstrong in the long-running soap opera.
