For more: “Store mannequins in Sweden. They look like real women.”
It’s a complicated issue, that we’ve touched on many times before. Skinny can be healthy, or it can be an unrealistic, unhealthy reference point that causes, indeed encourages obesity and overeating and binge/purging.
But it’s also a simple subject. Love oneself. Eat real food. Exercise. It’s hard work, but it’s simple: ignore the bullshit and focus in on our own habits.
More info: this was taken at an H&M:
Depending on when the photo was taken it could still be a “big is beautiful” mannequin. H&M had a BiB collection earlier, and maybe still do?
Two other comments making interesting points:
“Big is beautiful”.
Exactly, *********s need to stop calling this an average weight. Lying to yourself is helping no one, this mannequin is overweight, it’s for “big” clothing.
The sooner people admit they are fat the sooner they can get help before they die of heart disease.
