Isabelle Eleanore, from Australia, said she was humiliated after being told by cabin crew her black crop top was not suitable for flying.

The OnlyFans model said Jetstar staff ordered her to cover up, allegedly saying: "You can't wear a bikini."

Isabelle was then handed a hi-vis vest to wear over her black top, which she said made her feel 'degraded' and embarrassed in front of her fellow passengers.

Sharing her story to her Instagram followers, Isabelle said: "So they made a huge scene when I stepped on the plane and made me wait in front of everyone while they searched for something to cover me up with.

"Then I had to walk all the way to my seat wearing this vest. This is discrimination and humiliation Jet Star Australia.

"Apparently my top is too small and I couldn't fly without covering up.

"If I had small breasts I guarantee they wouldn't have said anything.

"They forced me to put on hi-vis vest. Am I lost... is it 1921 not 2021?"

Speaking to Nine News about the incident, Isabelle, who was travelling with her husband Jeremy Szwarcbord, said she felt as if she was being victimised.

She told the channel: "She looked at the ticket and then looked up and said, 'Oh, do you have a jumper you can wear?' and then here's me thinking she must be concerned I'm going to get cold on the flight, it's going to be cold in Melbourne or something.

"She kept going and she was, like, 'Well, you can't fly with what you're wearing, you can't wear a bikini'. And I'm like, 'Look - it's not a bikini, it's a top'."

Jetstar, which is owned by Qantas, has since apologised to Isabelle for the 'misunderstanding' over the situation and stated that the airline has no policy on crop tops.

In a statement, the firm told the Mirror: "We've contacted Isabelle about her recent experience and have apologised for the way the situation was handled.

"There was a misunderstanding of what our policy was, and we have reminded our crew of our dress requirements

"While we do have basic dress requirements on our flights, for example shoes, we do not have any policy regarding crop tops."

The airline's website does set out other 'minimum dress requirements' passengers must adhere to.

Its website reads: "Please refrain from wearing any clothing or carrying personal items that display words, images, symbols or slogans that may reasonably be deemed offensive (e.g. a t-shirt with slurs or swear words on it).

"Where this occurs, our crew will ask you to cover up the offensive material."
