My question is, women, have you ever used cleavage like this for any reason?.....like to get better tips?

Men, are you more likely to give a better tip to  a waitress/bartender that has good cleavage?  or are they wasting their time?

Just an unofficial pole I guess. But that seemed to be my thoughts and observations this past weekend.

I would feel kind of offended if someone I just had sex with, whom I ostensibly liked a lot, offered me cash.

Their phone calls would stop being answered very soon after.

As a proud member of the Itty Bitty Titty Commitee I never used my cleavage for financial gain.


Then some clever lil bastard came up with an awesome TRIPLE PADDED push-up bra and POOF! I HAVE CLEAVAGE! Now I definitely show them puppies off and being a bartender, I saw an increase in tips. smile

The kinds of jobs you're talking about, women don't get hired unless they're "using their cleavage".
If anyone turned around and said "great service is all I need!", they'd just hire the next girl who agreed to wear the cleavage uniform.
It's less about tips and more about making you decide to go there in the first place.

I once helped a lady with the filming of a interview she did. The interview was about a very serious subject and helping others through this traumatic experience. The entire filming the only thing that this lady cared about was making sure that she had a good amount of cleavage showing during the filming. By the end of the filming I was completley disgusted with her.

I think it is more of a pursuit of sex kind of thing. Should have added that.

And it doesn't have to be cash for sex... it could be dinner or jewelry or a lapdance... etc. wink

We are a visual creature and money or materialism has been a strategy men have used to attract women for a very long time.

Boobs work... so does any other female body part for that matter. LOL

And I should add women have used that to their advantage for just as long. They don't call it the oldest profession for nothing.

I'm not going to say they're wasting their time because I do appreciate it.  But no I wouldn't be inclined to tip more simply because someone is attractive and/or showing off their assets.

f the bartender is attractive and friendly, I tend to leave bigger tips. How much of her chest is showing has zero effect on anything.They can be hot as hell and topless, If they are rude and unfriendly I don't leave anything. I am not paying them to open my beer bottle. I can do that myself. I am tipping for the service.

What if she can open the beer bottle with her cleavage?

LOL, unofficial "pole?"  Pun intended there?  I think you meant unofficial "poll."

In any case, good cleavage and good service go hand in hand. To earn my tip you have to be service-oriented first, physique second.  If your service/attitude is up to par, I'd give you the tip you deserve, or in some cases even more.  But if you just have big tatas, but service is mediocre, that doesn't get me to unleash my pocket.

if i want something from my boyfriend in public then yeah, i might whip out the cleavage. if i'm at home and need a favor i just talk to him naked and he just nods. i'm really unsure about using cleavage at work though, although i have thought about it. i just don't want my coworkers to get what i'm doing and think i'm a total slutbag for it. if i worked at a bar though, hell yeah!

I have no boobs, so no - although I did get a fair amount of commentary when I wore fake boobs under a sports bra on Halloween.  That was an interesting experience. 

On the other end of that, I can't think of any times I've tipped more, mostly because waitresses never seem to realize that I'm as easily manipulated as any guy there.

Of course I do.  I take any and every advantage I can.  Though mainly I use it to get served quickly in bars.  And to keep things in when I have no handbag.  It's amazing what you can carry in even a modest cleavage

This! It's amazing how much (and what) the ladies can lug around between their boobs. I stopped being surprised when my friend's daughter whipped out her cell phone to take a call. How the gals do this without looking "lumpy" is really quite beyond me. I guess I'm just getting really old lol

I thought it would give me lumpy boobs, or boob-corners, so I didn't for the longest time.  But if you arrange everything just right, you can carry all sorts in the without anyone noticing.  I was at a convention once and I think I managed to get a pen, eyeliner, lipstick, half a pack of Starburst, a big rubber spider (don't ask), and all of my cash secreted in various points in and around my cleavage.  And it aint even that big, the girls with the big girls can do way more!

I had a friend once who held that short skirts were more effective in improving tips than was cleavage.  But then, she had great, long legs and little tiny perky boobs so she may have been a little bit prejudiced (or maybe just practical.)

If I had cleavage, I totally would. Unfortunately I gotta have a witty personality to compete with the DD's around me.

Very true, but if said sex was preceded by dinner, drinks, etc. or took place in a hotel room, it is likely that the man provided the funds for these things.

This could not be more true....
I was building a Power Plant, in around the College Station area. EVERY waitress in EVERY restaurant, bar, club, etc, walked around with HUGE chips on their shoulders. Their shit didn't stink, their tits were the best, and DID use this to their advantage. Until I showed up! We made a weekly habit of going to the Texas Roadhouse on Thursdays (payday!) and requested to be put at a particular waitresses table. If we got "stuck" at another hussie's table, we tipped. But not particularly well. This one waitress was a darling, worked her ass off, and got very little. We would tip our "busty" waitress, and then go over to the other one, and hand her a couple hundred each. Why? She treated us "working folk" as people. She sat, conversed, and worked her ass off. More so than the "busty" ones. Seemed like, all they had to do was show up, and made a thousand dollars. This girl was hot, but had the attitude, or more so, the state of mind, to go with it. Little did they know, we (while making outage-pay, per diem, and normal rates...) were some of the top paid persons in the county we were working. I'd waste a hundred or two on scratch offs in a week. Why not help a girl pay her car payment? big_smile I love the looks I'd get when I'd hand one beautiful, blonde, busty waitress a $20, and then on my way out, hand THAT girl a handful of $20's. Attitude, gets ya farther with me, than looks any day!
