Showing Off Big Boobs Gets Her the Boot
In one of the trade papers a small item caught my eye. ‘Busty Tourist told to cover up or leave,’ it said, quickly getting my attention. Stuff.co.nz had the rest of the story.
“A night of celebration turned to humiliation when an English tourist’s “offensive” breasts upset fellow punters at the Christchurch Casino. Helen Simpson, 33, from Nottingham, was wearing a low-cut, black evening dress when a woman staff member told her to cover up or leave.
“She said I was wearing too low a top, which people found offensive,” Simpson said. “I was highly embarrassed – humiliated, absolutely humiliated.
“There were girls at the casino wearing short skirts that I think are nothing more than belts.
“I feel like I’ve been discriminated against for having big breasts.” One of Simpson’s group lent her a zip-up top to cover her chest, but the night got worse when she learnt bar staff, croupiers and security staff had been told.
Simpson has written to casino management saying she left feeling “humiliated, discriminated and highly embarrassed”.She wrote: “Being well-endowed in the upper region is something I did not choose in life and something I’m certainly not proud of. “In turn, have you ever been shopping for a formal cocktail dress that is accommodating to a size 14 woman with the top half demanding a size 20?”
Simpson said it was discrimination. “You don’t see women with too small boobs being criticised, do you?” Her boyfriend, Chris Olivier, 34, said he had found Kiwis polite, friendly people, and the treatment had surprised him.
“She’d changed quite a few times before we went out and I thought she looked really nice,” he said. “It’s just disappointing.”
