Marilyn's not in my destiny

Feeling ever so slightly (or maybe not so slightly) peeved.  With one of my kids likely to swim the Open Water Classic at Brighton, SA next year, I thought I would sign up to be a Marilyn, have a bit of fun and support the Cancer Council.  Well, I was reading through the registration and got to the part about buying the swimsuits.  Sizing a bit unhelpful with no size guide attached but what really annoyed me was that, A. You don't get to choose the style (and some are a bit plunging) and B. No option for breast form pockets.  And this is run with the Cancer Council!  Really????  And of course, no contact details to complain to.

    Very annoying @Sister. One would expect a bit better than that from them

    That's a bit perplexing. Contàct the cancer councils marketing department if there is no line of enquiry with the registration.

    It is rather thoughtless, isn't it.

    Sounds like a marketing company on behalf of the event with no idea of what the physical implications are for some survivors of Cancer
    Hope you find the contact to let them know hey, this is a reality not marketing

    Thanks @hankster Got on the fb site and got a message back within a few hours.  She has given me contact details for a lady who makes the suits - just have to find out how much
