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.

Now, these department stores can display clothes on their mannequins that is more similar to the body type of their shoppers. As most women have curves, shouldn't these plastic women have them as well?
