Female Mannequins Are Unhealthy

A researcher studied the size and shape of female mannequins in the U.K. and just published his findings. He said that he could find no examples of a female mannequin that was a “normal body size.” He published his findings in the Journal of Eating Disorders and did an interview with the BBC. You can read the entire article here. The researcher points out that his findings were applicable to male mannequins as well. I hope that there is continued research on the topic — the images that society projects for what constitutes happy, and attractive make a huge difference.
