Chinese Restaurant Offers Discounts Based On Women's Bra Size

A seafood restaurant in Hangzhou, China, came under fire last week among local residents and Internet commenters after it advertised a promotion that offered discounts to women based on the size of their breasts.

According to Shanghaiist, the Trendy Shrimp restaurant put up an oversized poster that said, "The whole city is looking for BREASTS!"

The poster showed pictures of video game characters with increasingly large bust sizes and said that female customers would get discounted meals based on how large their breasts were. Women wearing A-cup bras would get five percent off their meal. A woman who wears a G cup would get 65 percent off.

Offended locals described the promotion as vulgar and discriminatory.

The advertisement has since been taken down, but Trendy Shrimp's manager defends the promotion. He said customer numbers increased by about 20 percent because of the stunt, and that some of the women were "quite proud" to have their bustlines assessed by the restaurant's servers.

This is not the first time a restaurant has gotten headlines for a bizarre discount scheme. A restaurant in Chongqing, China, once actually weighed customers at the door and gave them a discount according to weight. Thinner women paid less, and any woman under 76 pounds got her meal for free. The promotion worked the opposite way for men. Larger men paid less than slimmer ones.
