Whaaat!? Do mannequins in Sweden really look that much different?? Wow. Beauty standards here in america seem even more unrealistic now :(
We even dehumanize the features in America.
it always pisses me off when i see store mannequins that are SO thin, that not only do they have to wear the smallest size, but the employees actually have to pin or tie the clothing in the back in order to make it fit right. those swedish mannequins are awesome.
Fuck yeah Swedish mannequins. They should always look like real person. We want to know what these clothes would look like on a real human, not a clothe-holder.
Okay, those Swedish mannequins are disconcertingly hot. ijs. At the risk of having a bit of a Pygmalion moment.
interesting, and kind of shocking.
No but seriously when I worked in retail we had to pull all kinds of shit to get the clothes to look right on itty-bitty mannequins. They were all in XS and we had to pin and staple left and right and they’d still be baggy.
I’m all for this, but where in sweden do the mannequins look like this?
I mean, I live in the capital. Is at H&M Like at least once every two weeks. And I’ve never seen these..
