I was so riled reading this letter sent to Sis Beatrice in the ST’s yesterday . This guy’s wife reckons ladies with bigger busts should pay more for their brassieres.
Right then, so if you are going to discriminate against big busted women, just because you have bee-stings for boobs, why don’t we just go all the way, shall we?
I then want to pay less for my pants and shirts and jackets – because I need less material. And the same goes for shoes. If the avg shoe size for women is 6, then I want to pay less for my size 5’s. And why not have the guys who need size 12 shoes (like our very own Spy) pay more for his extra 4 sizes (assuming that size 8’s are avg for guys)? And sommer gooi in the bigger and taller too, will you? Let THEM also pay more for their bigger and taller sizes. But no, only the bustier females of the lot should get penalised, right?!
Do you have any idea what a schlep it is to find clothes that actually fits you properly? I forever need to have it shortened. Never mind the brassieres – if I find some (and I’m not talking Playtex-Cross-Your-Heart ones, they are WAY unsexy, and my mom used to wear them, I refuse to) I’m talking about the lacy, silky sexy stuff. If I DO find ones, I practically empty the store, coz’ I don’t know when I will be so lucky to find the right size again. And according to THOSE women, it’s ok that I pay EXTRA to cover my EXTRA bits? I don’t think so!!!
So please, do NOT discriminate against big-busted, small/big-footed, or short-legged creatures. We also have to dress and look nice. So there.
