Just saw this the other day…a company in Sweden is using more realistic mannequins (size 6 to 10) in its stores…why aren’t we doing this in the United States?  The ‘average’ size woman is a size 14 today.  I am a proponent of this even though I am a relatively slim 6-8 sized woman myself.  I feel that the ‘waif’ image is sending the wrong message to our youth/weight obsessed culture at large.

H & M models

 

How do you feel?  Is this a more realistic representation of what women really look like? Would love to hear your thoughts on this subject…
