Chinese Restaurant Offers Women Discounts Based On Their Bra Size

The larger the breasts, the bigger the discount ?€? that?€?s the controversial promotion a restaurant in Zhejiang province,??China, offered this month.??The eatery, called Trendy Shrimp, prompted furore for its provocative price-cuts, which an incensed local called?€?discriminatory?€? and ?€?vulgar.?€?

Trendy Shrimp, which is located in a mall in the city of Hangzhou, advertised the unusual discount in a poster placed outside the restaurant on July 31, the Qianjing Evening Post reported.

?€?The whole city is looking for BREASTS,?€? reads the placard,??which features an accompanying image of animated female characters with varying breast sizes and a table showing how much of a price cut a woman would get based on her bra size.

According to the poster, women of all bra sizes would get some kind of discount at the eatery ?€‘± though the percentage varied significantly. Women who wear A-cup bras would get a 5 percent discount, while G-cup wearers would get a 65 percent discount. (In China, discounts are expressed differently than in the U.S. The lower the number, the better the deal.)

The poster was removed within a few days following a public backlash, said Lan Shenggang, the restaurant?€?s general manager.

Lan, however, defended the offer, insisting that customers had responded positively to it.???€?Once the promotion started, customer numbers rose by about 20 percent,?€? he said, according to the BBC.

?€?Some of the girls we met were very proud ?€? they had nothing to hide,?€? he said.

Earlier this week, HuffPost reported that another restaurant had come under fire for what some people called discriminatory pricing ?€? though for a very different reason. Handsome Her cafe in Australia introduced a voluntary??18 percent ?€?gender pay gap?€? tax on male customers in an effort to raise awareness about wage inequality.
