“I felt humiliated and discriminated against due to my figure.”
An Ottawa-area woman says staff at her gym said her outfit – a tank top and athletic pants – was “inappropriate” and “offensive to both the staff and other members” due to the size of her chest.
“I will start by saying my tank top was no different than many other women’s tank top at the club; except my chest size is much larger in appearance in comparison to my frame than many of the other women,” wrote Vecchio.
After asking some of the women working out that day if they had a problem with her tank top (they didn’t), Vecchio went back to the staff member.
“I pointed out to them that my shirt was no different than any other woman’s shirt. They informed me that it did not matter that due to my chest size I could not wear a tank top,” she wrote.
