Southwest Airlines Prevented Woman From Boarding Plane Because Of Her Cleavage
Avital, identified only by her first name, was told to button up her flannel shirt over her sundress because she had too much cleavage.
She wasn’t exactly verging into XXX territory with her rope belt and Birkenstock-y sandals. Is it really inappropriate for a self-described large-chested woman to wear a non-constricting sundress on a 100-degree day? More to the point: is it really the airline’s responsibility to dictate what is and isn’t appropriate apparel? “To add insult to injury, the guy sitting in front of me on the plane was wearing a shirt with an actual Trojan condom embedded behind a clear plastic applique and had no trouble getting on his flight,” Avital added. “Slut shaming, pure and simple.”
The airline apologized and offered a refund.
