I hope my anti-Chope constituency pant protest shows solidarity'.
In a statement she said that she was "remaining positive" and acknowledged that Chope was always a "risk".
She said: "We are committed to making sure upskirting becomes a criminal offence and have every expectation that this will happen".
"Upskirting is an invasion of privacy which leaves victims feeling degraded and distressed", Ms May said on Twitter.
On Friday, Liberal Democrat Wera Hobhouse tabled a private member's bill that would make upskirting a criminal offence punishable by up to two years in prison.
Sir Christopher Chope told the Bournemouth Daily Echo that upskirting - taking pictures up someone's clothing without their consent - was "vulgar, humiliating and unacceptable".
Sir Christopher said: "The government has been hijacking time that is rightfully that of backbenchers".
However, campaigners argue that current legislation does not adequately cover the practice.
"Whilst we are disappointed this Bill did not pass second reading today, we look forward to supporting these measures through the House at the earliest possible opportunity".
He said: "The Government supported today's Bill on "up-skirting".
It means the Bill will have to return for another Friday Private Members Bill session, on July 6, if it is to have any hope of becoming law this Parliamentary term. He insisted that he is not a "pervert" or a "dinosaur" but objected to the Bill progressing because he feels it is important for MPs to debate issues fully.
The blocking process only needs one MP to shout "object" when the title is read out, and as the Christchurch MP halted proceedings, he was met with cries of "shame" in the Commons.
Martin said she was "extremely upset and disappointed" and that she spoke to Chope after his objection and he agreed to meet with her to learn more about the bill.
Sir Christopher is a leading member of a group of backbench Conservatives who make a practice of ensuring that what they see as well-meaning but flabby legislation is not lazily plopped on to the statute book by a few MPs on a poorly-attended Friday sitting.
"Don't underestimate just how furious many Tory MPs are about this", tweeted Paul Masterton, a new MP who is 39 years Sir Christopher's junior.

Trump has long groused about the cost of basing U.S. troops in South Korea and has floated the possibility of withdrawing them. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo seemed to hint that the outcome of the talks might not be what Trump has promised in the past.
Pompeo said in Seoul that Trump's tweet about North Korea no longer posing a nuclear threat was made "with eyes wide open". It comes days after President Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un held a historic summit in Singapore.
So number one we save money, a lot, and number two, it really is something that I think they [North Korea] very much appreciate. Kim called the sit-down a "good prelude for peace" and Trump pledged that "working together we will get it taken care of".
