First Bush, Now Back Fat: Is 2014 The Year Of The 'Real' Mannequin?

We all know that the traditional mannequin looks nothing like a real women’s body. And personally, the thing that annoys me the most is how even in an extra small or 00, the workers who dress the mannequins STILL have to pin the clothes to make them smaller. Ridiculous. But apparently store owners are catching on and changing their mannequins to mimic more realistic women. David’s Bridal, in particular, has decided to give theirs thicker waists, saggier boobs, and back fat (it’s nice to know that this is what your average women has). Michele Von Plato, David’s Bridal VP, said that they will give a bride a better idea of what the dress will look like on her. Thanks for the obvious remark, Von Plato. Check out the new mannequins here.

A bathing suit shop in Miami plans to add tattoos to their mannequins, and stores like Ralph Pucci and Nordstrom are going to jump on to the thicker mannequin trend too. Because people are buying more and more online, store owners view mannequins as a crucial part of getting people to buy in-store. If a women sees a dress she likes, there’s no way she’s going to try it if it’s on a 6 foot frame with a quadruple 0 waist. But on a model with a little fat? Then she just might. Thank god everyone isn’t jumping in on the American Apparel trend. That might be just a little too much. What do you think? Will thicker mannequins get you to buy in-store? Let us know in the comment section below! [TIME]
