The Woman Whose Butt Didn’t Fit in an Airplane Seat Revealed Her Old Photos, Shocking Many by How Different She Looked Before

month ago

Not long ago, a young woman became globally known when she complained that her body didn’t fit in an airplane seat and called on airlines to update their planes to accommodate modern bodies. Many suspected her of having plastic surgery, and then she shared her old photos, but the debate only intensified.

A viral dilemma.

Gracie Bon, a social media star from Panama, went viral when she shared a video of herself on a plane. It showed her struggling to buckle up in an airplane seat. Her discomfort was evident as she tried to adjust herself in the cramped space. The video struck a chord with many, spreading like wildfire across social media platforms.

She elaborated on her struggle and many resonated with her.

Despite booking first-class tickets, Gracie found no respite. She faced the same issue. The seats were still just too small for her curvaceous figure.

This led her to voice a bold statement. She urged airplanes should have bigger seats. She also argued that it’s not her responsibility to change her body to fit into the seats.

Gracie’s message received both support and criticism.

Gracie’s outspokenness brought mixed reactions. While some applauded her for standing up for plus-sized individuals, others criticized her. One person wrote, «Buy two seats instead of one; clearly, you’ve got plenty of money to afford them.» Another commented, «Whose fault is it? No one forced you to get the surgeries.»

Many were quick to support the influencer. One person expressed, «Agreed. I definitely need a larger seat and a seatbelt that doesn’t have such a hard buckle.» Another fan defended Gracie, pointing out, «The only surgery she has had was a tummy tuck. Her hips are naturally that large.»

People suggested that her body’s proportions were a result of plastic surgery. Gracie stood firm, countering that her physique was natural. She requested that the airline industry adapt to accommodate everyone despite their size.

The model shared her impressive transformation journey.

Putting the negative comments about her having surgery to make her butt bigger to rest, Gracie spoke out. She shared before and after photos of herself. She clarified that she used to weigh 300 lbs (136 kg).

When she was 21 years old, she decided to adopt a healthier lifestyle. She started working out and taking care of herself. She also added that she made such a decision as her weight started affecting her health and led to knee pain and breathing issues.

She admitted to having surgeries on her upper body.

Gracie successfully lost 100 lbs (45 kg). She confesses that to deal with extra skin, she opted for surgery. In fact, she says she had «many» small surgeries to remove the loose skin. Gracie also promotes body positivity and believes that no one body type is superior. We should all feel comfortable in our own skin without giving into beauty standards.

Gracie openly acknowledged undergoing a tummy tuck surgery and shared before-and-after photos. However, it’s evident that her thighs are naturally that size.

She clarified, «And even so, many tell me: ‘but if you had loved it, you would have stayed like this and not changed anything about you.’ The truth is that I loved my body so much that I wanted to take care of it and decided to save myself, I didn’t like my knee pain, not being able to breathe properly or rejection from my ex-partner at that time, so I did everything possible to lose weight.»

Many people still had various questions. Some asked how she was able to only lose weight in her upper body. Others questioned how her face changed completely. A few also wondered if she edits her photos. Gracie is yet to comment on these concerns.

Undoubtedly, the world is changing, and body positivity is gaining momentum. For instance, a plus-size model Paloma Elsesser became the model of the year for 2023.
