Swedish Mannequins Cause A Stir

Personally, I think it’s a great step forward and I hope that more stores will consider doing this all over the world. It could have a positive impact on body image to see more average sizes displayed in stores.

    I think it’s also likely to give shoppers a better idea on how clothes will look on a wider variety of body sizes, which is useful as well. 🙂
