Target’s Plus Size Manequins

I was pleasantly surprised the last time I visited my local Target store.  The store featured plus size mannequins!  Interestingly, these mannequins made me feel better about my shopping experience.

Having been a size 14 or larger for as long as I can remember, I have always shopped in woman’s or plus size sections of stores.  Despite the fact that the majority of women in the U.S. wear plus sized clothes, there are few brick and mortar stores that feature plus size fashion much less plus size mannequins.

Plus size mannequins are great!  They allow curvier ladies to have a better idea of how the clothes will look on them.  They also help to alleviate that feeling of being left out that occurs when stores don’t carry a full range of plus size clothes.  These mannequins help women to explore their own personal style!

I applaud Target for using these mannequins.  It’s a step in the direction of fashion inclusiveness.

    I just left the Mount Pleasant Target store today, March 24, 2018. I saw the plus size mannequins for the first time. I’ve been a plus size for years and it is not an easy life to live. I always have the hope of getting smaller. When I saw the mannequins I was greatly offended. They were my nightmare come to life. I don’t want to look like that. I need hope please, take them out of your stores and I will shop there again. I cannot with the plump mannequins s standing guard at the department’s entrance.
