Stunned mum-of-two Harriet Osborne, 31, was told her partially see-through top was unsuitable as children were on board.

The make-up artist, who was not wearing a bra but had nipple covers and tape, covered up with a mate’s jumper but was not allowed back on.

Harriet had to sleep on the floor at Malaga airport with her friend before they flew home the next day.

She blasted: “The crew were horrible and made me feel cheap. This air hostess confronted me in front of the whole plane and said I wasn’t allowed on in that top.

“She said to me, ‘Oh no, move to the side,’ and tried to cover me up with my hands.

“She said, ‘You’re not coming on my plane like that — you need to put a top on’.

“Then she ordered me off the plane, so of course I put a top on. When I tried to get back on she turned to the ground crew and said, ‘She’s not coming on my plane’.

“I was escorted away from the aircraft. I was in shock. It was so sexist.

“I just burst out crying. We had to walk back through the terminal where Spanish police stopped to question us. They were baffled when I told them why we’d been kicked off.”

Harriet, who spent the weekend at a relative’s house, paid £149 for another flight.

Harriet, of Southwold, Suffolk, said: “I never show my body off at home but I felt spontaneous as I was on holiday. It made me feel so self-conscious.”

Whether it’s because you’ll stick out like a sore thumb abroad, or you’ll be uncomfortable on a plane, always dress appropriately. For some that means you'll want to research your specific destination to find out which clothes are and aren't applicable to your particular trip. You should also keep in mind the local customs and religious beliefs.

For example, if you're visiting a mosque, you should have clothing available that will cover you up almost entirely or risk offending the locals. Finally, you should consider safety when you pick out your clothes. The key is to blend in. This means no bright or loud colors and sticking to neutrals. You'll look less like a mark for thieves who prey on people who look like tourists.
