Default Oinker Blogger Says She Was Stopped from Taking Photos in a BikiniDespite Getting Permission

A blogger says she was stopped from taking photos in a bikini at
a Las Vegas hotel, despite previously getting permission from
the staff.

Anna O’Brien, who runs the blog Glitter + Lazers, says that she
contacted the hotel where she was staying ahead of time to set
up a photo shoot for her website. The New York-based blogger
says that the hotel, which she declines to name, approved her
request and said that she could shoot anywhere except the casino
floor. She adds that they did not send any guidelines on
clothing restrictions.

O’Brien, 33, says that six minutes into the shoot, the security
guards “got aggressive” with her and her photographer over her
bikini, despite women in “comparable attire — show girl outfits”
walking through the same area. They were able to get a few
photos, one of which she posted on her Instagram page.

“At first I was embarrassed, then I was upset,” she tells
PEOPLE. “I have to say I have done shoots at hotels all over the
world and I have never had this reaction.”

O’Brien says she felt like the aggression was related to her
body size.

“It’s hard after years of being told plus size women cannot wear
certain things, to not have an irrational shame come up when
some one of authority questions your right to do a normal thing
like wear a swimsuit,” she says. “I am body positive and
genuinely love myself, but my past experiences also can’t be
erased or forgotten.”

Cosmopolitan contacted the hotel, which said that they stopped
O’Brien because she needed additional clearance to take bikini

“All guests wearing bathing suits inside our lobby and casino
are asked to cover up. Additionally, Ms. O’Brien never shared
with the PR team that she intended to take photos in the lobby
in her bathing suit. Had we understood her intent additional
clearances to take the photos would have been required and, if
permitted, we would have had a PR team member present to staff.”

O’Brien says her frustration lies less with the hotel, and more
with the culture around “plus bodies.”

“I am not sure if the incident was intentionally malicious as it
was a reflection of what plus bodies aren’t able to be seen as,”
she says. “I think in the minds of these guards, a plus size
women couldn’t be a legitimate model with clearance. She must be

She adds that this incident shows why the body culture needs to

“I think it just goes to show that a plus size woman wearing
what every other woman wears is still foreign and scary to a lot
of people,” she says. “It’s a reminder that taking images like
this is important — to normalize them.”

The black boys probably like her.
