I highly doubt that you could have a qualification that would fit the business.
Hooters can get away with this, because their entire practice is based on one thing. Luring in people (Mainly men) with well endowed waitresses.
In their case, breasts being a requirement is no more discriminatory then Generic Company #1 requiring a person to have a Generic Diploma 1 and 2.
Edit - The key part is business being undermined. That is why they would fall under the BFOQ. For them, this requirement is genuine and not rasist or homophobic. I'll agree, however, that is is sexist to the core, but as long as women are willing to work there they can get away with it.
