Big Dummies

With more high-end designers creating profitable lines for larger women, department stores are ordering bigger dummies to replace the skinny manis that traditionally modeled clothes of all sizes.

“Can’t relate to that tall, willowy, perky-breasted model in your favorite store? Fortunately, manufacturers are breaking the mold with fiberglass forms more representative of our curvier proportions and diverse skin tones,” writes A.J. Hanley in this month’s issue of Fitness magazine.

--I think that's a great move. There have been several times I've tried something on that looked great on a mannequin, and then realized it only looked good on the mannequin because it was a replica of someone who weighed 84 pounds.

2 What is up with the manis at Lane Bryant being so small, and the store thus has to pin the clothes they sell in to make them fit. You think THEY would have plus size ones at least.
