A Swedish clothing store has sparked a social media storm after displaying full-figured, curvy mannequins.
A blogger took a photo of the plus-sized H&M mannequins dressed in skimpy lingerie. The department store models displayed bigger busts, softer stomachs, and larger thighs than traditional mannequins.
The photo was posted on Facebook and caused a controversy. It had more than 50,000 likes and 15,000 shares Thursday night.
Modern-day mannequins have long been scrutinized for their tiny size 4 proportions, since the average woman wears a size 14. H&M said the clothing retailer installed the realistically shaped mannequins to show their customers what clothes really look like off the hanger.
