Sexist pricing

Maybe a year or two ago, women's shirts and men's shirts were both 3 for $189. Within the past year, they've raised the price on men's shirts to 3 for $199, and women's shirts to 2 for $149, hoping no one would notice that the rate of increase on women's shirts was over 18% while for men's shirts it was only 5%. This is pretty outrageous on their part especially considering how much more material goes into making a men's shirt in comparison to a women's shirt. Did they think women wouldn't be smart enough to figure this out?

Although there is a selection of "Big and Tall" sizes for men's clothing, BB offers women no plus sizes!!! For shame. We have shopped at various sites for 40yrs, but no more...........

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
