We know you haven’t even had your daily bee sting skincare treatment yet this morning, but there’s news on the size inclusion in stores front.
Today in What Women Actually Look Like, the marketing director behind this brilliant campaign that gave model height restrictions the slip spotted a mannequin with curves. Unfortunately there are discount tags all over her, but it’s still extremely rare.
Other pioneers in the art of size-diverse mannequins are Forever 21, Lindex Target, Debenhams, and H&M. This is likely less about wanting to do everyone justice and see themselves in the clothes and more about a reaction to when customers take shaming shots of mannequins with visible ribs or what they feel are unattainable body type for women who aren’t made of plastic. (All of this promotes unhealthy body image, so they say.) Not everyone loves the new curvier mannequins as some of the fuller figured mannequins appear to be a few sizes smaller than the clothes in the sections for sizes 12 and up.
What do you think Rioters? Do you want to see mannequins in more sizes?
