Comment on Do larger mannequins make you feel better about your figure? by lizvocal.
In general, i don’t pay much attention to models, magazines or mannequins, and they don’t influence how I feel about my shape. And as a bi woman, I prefer larger women. 🙂
But, I think having a mix of sizes on display helps little girls to see alternatives, and helps those less sure of themselves see beauty in themselves. If nothing else, it gives a larger woman an idea of what the clothes might look like on her.
If store displays are styling larger mannequins, it might also make them more conscious of what works and what doesn’t on a size 16, something that can only improve clothes in larger sizes.

Clothes for the Chronically Undecided
I can only imagine wearing that harem hybrid out in public – and being stopped every few feet to be told your pants are bunched up in back. No one would ever believe you left the house intending to look like that.
How much would you pay for a beat-up denim jacket?
I would spend $5 at Goodwill, and get a much better looking coat at that.
We’re, like, totally obsessed with this orange Valentino dress
Honest to goodness, this would be the easiest thing to sew. Save yourself $4000! and LOL to Heidi.
Well, this is awkward.
Is this because we don’t teach home ec anymore? Because all these designers need sewing lessons, stat.
Still time to buy the amazing crocheted swimsuit!
Only if the airbrush artist who did this model could follow me around and airbrush me in real life. Even then, the little tassels down the front might defeat me.
