Plus-sized mannequins are starting to pop up in department stores like Britain's Debenhas and Australian retailer Myer. Your average mannequin is an European 8-10 (sometimes smaller), which isn't very reflective of the average size women these days. These new mannequins range from European size 16-20, which showcases clothing on a plastic model that is more realistic.
