Are the overweight / obese treated badly in Europe?

Jump to last reply

My sister and mother will be traveling to Paris, Florence and Amsterdam for a month. They are both quite heavy. My sister is about 6' tall and 220lbs (size US 18) and my mother is about 100lbs overweight, although not as tall.

I am worried they may be treated unkindly, as I have seen this happen when we travelled together to California last year. I have been to Europe, but not being heavy, I'm not sure what it may be like for them in the places they are visiting.

Maybe it's a silly question, but I want them to have a good time. My sister is already worried about it, and is considering canceling the trip until she has lost 60lbs. The way she was treated in Los Angeles has really caused her much anxiety about traveling again. :(. It's upsetting because she doesn't have a mean bone in her body, and she is always so kind, polite and upbeat. I'd hate to think she will have to go through it again.

If anyone can offer any advice, especially on this subject, or if you are heavy, please post if you were treated any differently. Thanks.
