Mannequins: Getting Back Fat and Tattoos?
Posted Friday January 31, 2014 10:15 AM GMT
In an effort to be more inclusive of all body types, clothing companies are utilizing a diverse array of mannequins these days.
According to Racked, there are all kinds of displays to more accurately represent the men and women that actually browse the racks.
An AP report states, "Wings Beachwear's mannequins in Miami sport flower tattoos like some of the women who shop there. The mannequins at American Apparel's downtown New York City store have pubic hair peeking through their lingerie. And at David's Bridal, mannequins soon will get thicker waists, saggier breasts and back fat to mimic a more realistic shape.”
To that end, David’s Bridal VP Michele Von Plato hopes the new mannequins “will give shoppers a better idea of what the dress will look like on her.”
