They’re in almost every shop window you pass down the high-street, but one girl from Derbyshire says mannequins are causing low self-esteem in women.
Shannon Guild is recovering from an eating disorder and the slim mannequins used in most shops have made her recovery much harder:
“Everybody is different and we all deserve to feel beautiful.”
“We’re asking for plastic to be reshaped,” added the 21-year-old student.
Shannon is campaigning for shops to use a range of shapes and sizes.
Mannequin supplier Trade Lines Shop Equipment Ltd. says the average mannequin is a 5 feet 11 inches and a size 8-10.
