A speed dating event only for “Skinny Minnies”?

A New York speed dating event company wants to make sure daters get what they want – even if it is an arbitrary dress size. The “Skinny Minny” speed dating night will only admit women sizes 0-8 – and they’ll be checking tags at the door. Sites like Jezebel and the Huffington Post are critical, of course.

I’m curious whether they’ll take vanity sizing into account and allow vintage size 12s, or if one could “sneak in” a UK size 10 (the equivalent of a US 8).

What’s next, checking bra sizes at the door?
