Mall slammed over bra contest

A shopping centre has been slammed for staging a competition to see how quickly contestants could unhook women’s bras with one hand.

Anyone who could undo eight bras with one hand in under a minute won a shopping voucher to spend at the mall in Guangzhou, Guangdong province, China.

Eight women stood in a line on a stage, wearing only a bra and a face mask above the waist, for the event, reports the Guangzhou Daily.

Some of the watching crowd clapped and cheered as contestants successfully unfastened bras – but others were shocked by the event.

One angry shopper, Zhang Zhengyi, complained: “This must have been the brainwave of a dirty old man – why would anyone want to take part in such a degrading spectacle?”

But a spokesman for the Modern Development shopping mall defended the competition which he said was to promote underwear awareness.

“The workings of a women’s bra are a mystery for many men – this activity helped more people understand bra culture and explore its secrets,” he said.

Ironically, the competition was won by a woman who successfully unfastened eight bras in just 21 seconds.

She did not wish to be identified but said: “I thought it was a lot of fun. I didn’t expect to win – maybe it was because I get so much practice in my everyday life.”
