Higher prices for larger sized bras

The BBC is reporting that some women are taking Marks and Sparks to task over the fact they charge an extra 2 GBP for cup sizes over DD. One women is to "confront" the M&S chairman at the next shareholders meeting for an explanation. She is recorded in the article as possesing a 30G cup requirement. I did double check the article to make sure I got it right and wasnt just letting my imagination run riot.....

Now, two things spring to mind (pun intended):

1. If it is larger than most, it therefore takes more material and labor to manufacture so shouldnt it cost more? - Are the skinny girls being overcharged??
2. What in heavens name does a 30G breast look like?? (From a proportion point of view, I do have a general idea of what they look like )

I'm sure this will generate some good, on/off topic humour if nothing else.

Enjoy.....

Will their complaint be upheld? Is it a storm in a G cup?

That looks like someone's decently-sized buttocks - otherwise overly (if not artificially) top-heavy in the other case...?!

Flame..

I think it is worth every penny extra of the £30+ per bra I pay to lift them off my knees!
Ahh.. but some women I know choose to let them hang down---they tell me it pulls the wrinkles out of their faces..

It is well known that large bras are purchased and the two cups are separated.
Then they are suspended underside helicopters and used for fire fighting.
The water is released through portals created at the lowest point.

One much prefers a pert derriere than an elevated bosom in one's ladies. One invariably forgets the pain in the arse that usually accompanies same.

Talking about 'derrières'....

Why did this instantly remind me of airlines charging .... err... 'weight-challenged' passengers double because they need two seats?

I am sure M&S will be "up front" with the complaints. They have always been "abreast"of the latest trends.

I think this is just a storm in a "D cup" anyway. But there again M&S have always had their "Knockers".

It's all good advertsing anyway, Tesco must be feeling a right Tit they didn't take the lead.

Bras priced by size?

My significant other is quite generously endowed, she reports the issue for her is finding sufficient comfort and support at whatever price.
