An Ottawa woman says she was humiliated and “body shamed” when staff at an Orleans gym told her that her chest was “too large” for her tank top.
Jenna Vecchio, was working out with her husband when a female supervisor confronted her about her attire. She was told other clients at the gym had complained her top made them feel uncomfortable.
Vecchio says she was confused and seriously embarrassed, especially since other women wore similar tank tops.
“I said I can’t help it that my chest may appear larger than some other women’s here because of my small frame, but I can’t do anything about it,” Vecchio told Metro.
“I felt humiliated. I was made to feel uncomfortable. I felt degraded.”
She took to Facebook to explain the ordeal and to post photos of the disputed outfit. So far, the post has been shared more than 3,000 times.
