M&S defends ‘tax on bigger bras’

from the BBC:

Marks & Spencer has defended a policy of charging extra on some of its bras that are bigger than a size DD.

The High Street retailer said that the added cost – typically £2 – was “standard industry practice”.

M&S added it found most customers “were happy to pay a small premium for the specialist work” needed to make larger sizes of their bras.

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… continued

Personal comment?  This large-chester doesn’t really mind the extra couple of quid (it’s more or less the norm across the board), so long as the bras stay in good quality and attractive designs.  The jealous A cup should not have all the style!
