A Canadian woman was asked to leave the gym because her boobs were ‘too big’
Jenna Vechhio, a Canadian woman was asked to change her top because it was offending other gym users.
The reason for it being so offensive? The size of her chest.
Jenna was wearing a vest top (normal workout wear) when she was apparently told she’d need to change, or leave. She wrote on Facebook: “I am a member of Movati Athletic Club in Orleans, Ontario. I was instructed by a Supervisor at the club that my tank top was inappropriate dress and is offensive to both the staff and other members.”
At Movati, they have a dress code stating only appropriate gym attire and modest clothing is to be worn.
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.
After asking every woman at the club who I could find on the way out if my attire offended them and they responded no, it became clear that the only ones offended were the two women supervisors working at the club today.”
Jenna added they she felt ‘humiliated’ and ‘singled out’ due to her figure – and you can see why. Having big boobs does not give the world a license to treat you with contempt. Jenna added – quite rightly – ‘Different figures doesn’t mean different rules.’
The gym responded in a statement, saying “On Saturday when some members of our gym voiced complaints regarding Ms. Vecchio’s attire as it made them feel uncomfortable and was seen as being contrary to our dress code policy our staff assessed the situation and spoke to Ms. Vecchio.’
“While in no way did we intend to embarrass her, we did feel we had to address the issue.’
“We are still looking into the matter, and would be happy to sit down and speak with Ms. Vecchio in more detail as we continue to investigate the incident.”
What do you think? Was her outfit really inappropriate?
