Jenna Vecchio was working out at her Ottawa gym, Movati Athletic Club, on Saturday morning with her husband, as she normally does about five times per week. On this morning in question, however, Vecchio was confronted by a female employee about her tank top, claiming that her attire had been getting complaints from other gym members.
Vecchio’s tank top was no different from what other women at the gym were wearing, and was even similar to images found in the gym’s advertising and on its website. The only difference between Vecchio and other women similarly dressed at Movati is that Vecchio happens to be, shall we say, more endowed in the chest area. (She has big boobs, okay?)
Regardless, the employee told her that she could choose to cover up with a T-shirt or leave. Suffice to say Vecchio left.
“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.”
