Big Girls get it rough.
BBC NEWS | Business | M&S defends ‘tax on bigger bras’: “Marks & Spencer has defended a policy of charging extra on some of its bras that are bigger than a size DD.
The iconic High Street retailer said that the added cost – typically £2 – was ‘standard industry practice’.
The retailer said it found customers ‘were happy to pay a small premium for the specialist work’ needed to make larger sizes.
But the policy has drawn protests with 900 people joining a Busts 4 Justice protest group on the Facebook website.
Its founders argue it is unfair that smaller bras are cheaper, because this logic does not apply to other clothes.”
