UK Department Store Says OK to Size 16 Mannequins

From The Daily Mail

“Department store Debenhams has launched a trial of size 16 mannequins in its windows, it announced today.  The store wants customer feedback before extending the trial.

Debenhams currently uses standard size 10 mannequins in all its window displays despite the majority of women in the UK measuring in at either a size 14 or 16.

Signs next to the mannequins, which will be wearing the recently launched Principles by Ben de Lisi range, will ask customers: ‘I’m a size 16. Do you want to see more of me?’

Debenhams stocks up to size 26 in its womenswear department, with 42 per cent of sales coming from size 14 and 16 garments.”

Way to go, Brits! Hopefully the U.S. won’t be left behind in the full-figured revolution.
