Swedish Mannequins

Friday, March 15, 2013

I just wanted to share this link. It's an article about a Swedish department store's mannequins which are causing a controversy; because shock of all shocks, the body types are modeled after the "average" woman.

Most mannequins are sculpted to a size 6 or 4, (or smaller) whereas the average, healthy woman, is a size 14. Apparently, there have been outcries over mannequins at stores that have protruding spins and bone thin legs, etc.

But they were saying it’s a double edged sword, because when they do manufacture and display larger mannequins the public’s reaction is just as negative. So they’re damned if they do and damned if they don’t.
