Why Shop Mannequins Don't Represent Average Women

Posted on 19 November 2013
One Venezuelan mannequin maker recently hit the headlines when he decided to try and boost flagging sales by altering the shape of his dummies to give them vital statistics more on par with that of modern Venezuelan women, who are increasingly turning to cosmetic surgery to transform their bodies.

Have you ever felt frustrated that an item of clothing that looked so amazing when you saw it on a mannequin in a shop window looked decidedly less than appealing when you tried it on in the changing room?

Many shop dummies have unbelievably small waists, tiny arms, and impossibly pert bosoms, so it’s really no surprise that those of us with more average figures can’t compete with our plastic counterparts. 

One Venezuelan mannequin maker recently hit the headlines when he decided to try and boost flagging sales by altering the shape of his dummies to give them vital statistics more on par with that of modern Venezuelan women, who are increasingly turning to cosmetic surgery to transform their bodies. Armed with bigger breasts, more curvaceous hips, and a distinctly ample derriere, his new mannequins went down a storm with the public.

While Liberate believes that no-one should be made to feel inferior by the images projected on us by any media, be it women’s magazines, TV adverts, bus-stop posters, or the modest shop dummy, we do love that this story just goes to show that females around the world don’t necessarily wish to conform to the worrying Size Zero trend. Of course, we come in all shapes and sizes, and try as we might, there are certain things we cannot change no matter how much we exercise, diet, or pay a cosmetic surgeon. Some of us are born tall and slender, others of us are shorter and more curvy, while others are somewhere in between. So, if you’re lusting for longer legs or a predisposition for eating lots without putting on weight, there’s not going to be much you can do about it.

However, if you’re not 100% happy with your body shape or facial features, there are various ways in which you can subtly change things to give you an appearance more suited to your wishes.

Our professional, highly-experienced and qualified surgeons around the UK, who are all members of BAAPS (British Associations of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons) and/or BAPRAS (British Associations of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons), are extremely skilled in performing a myriad of life-changing procedures – both surgical and non-surgical.
